Almost 6 years ago, my youngest daughter, Lindsay Ferrill, was murdered by an ex-boyfriend, before killing himself, while her 3 year old daughter was in the next room.  My prayer was that her death would not be in vain and somehow God would use it for His glory.  Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to Roy Wooten and Shield Bearer, who “just happened” to have a Dating Violence Prevention Program as part of their services.  Through God’s orchestration and Roy’s vision and compassion, that program became Lindsay’s Light Dating Violence Prevention Program.  I am blessed to be the Director of that program. My oldest daughter, Erica, and I go into schools, churches, clubs, and other organizations to tell Lindsay’s story and educate students, teachers and parents about dating violence.  Shield Bearer is changing hearts and lives. I know, because they have changed mine!  Please consider supporting this amazing organization.
