Have you ever read a book that you absolutely could not put down? Mary Frances Bowley, the founder of Wellspring Living, is releasing her new book this week—Make It Zero—and I could not put it down. I’m not exaggerating when I say this book could change the world. It could certainly change a bunch of “somebody’s” worlds.

Through the stories Mary Frances has recorded, and through her own passion and compassion for young women from difficult places, you will come away changed. You will move away from being concerned with a “category” of people to feeling an urgency to personally respond.

As a foster mom, it’s easy for me to put my girls’ faces into the stories Mary Frances shares. Foster children are more likely to become runaways. They are more susceptible to homelessness at early ages. And there is a strong correlation between runaways, homelessness, and commercial sex trafficking.

So often when we face the overwhelming statistics and the numbers related to at-risk women and children, we turn away, not because we don’t care, but because we wonder how our little bits can ever make a difference. Mary Frances hammers home the idea that everyone can do something. Whether your platform is large or small, whether you can impact thousands or make an impact on one, YOU can make a difference.

So, please read Make It Zero. Share it with others. Become part of a movement. You’ll be glad you did!
