Hey yal it's the ONE and ONLY KK!!!! I want to send a message of Hope to all the women who will eventually get the chance of a lifetime to work with Miss Lauren, Miss Em, and Miss Laurel. I miss yal and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work with all of yal wonderful women. Girrrlll I miss the days at my desk. Being pulled out of my comfort zone and into my creative side helped me so so so much!! It calmed the storm that was building up in me. Every single piece I personal made, I sent a piece of my heart with. So when customers get a necklace, bracelet, earrings and so on. They will now and forever have a piece of me. To be the light they need at any moment. To show them that theres beauty everywhere no matter your situation. Yal have helped build my self esteem. I would race to get orders done, so I can praise myself in my head for starting and finishing what I needed to do. Working along side of yal, it helped bring structure in my life. And in every piece of metal that was stamped, colored in, polished, bent, having O rings attach, claws, it showed me with patience and knowing that I CAN make a difference. It made each piece very very special to me. If anyone has a kk or other survivor initials, I personally would love to see a message personalized. When I read what customers write to us, and I see the name kk, it completes me and it reminds me how theres so many amazing women out there FOR ME plus that never met me either. The messages I've read help me out of my deep depression lately. I want to thank each and everyone who supports us in this time of our lives that we are learning live and be safe. Personally for me it means learning to be patient with myself, dont beat myself up or like yal say Mistakes Are OK, when I would make a mistake I got that feeling I've felt during the darkest times of my life. I thought yal would be upset with me, yell at me, or even fire me for it. But yal stopped what yal were working on a d looked at my with the softest eyes filled with love and told me ITS OK. MISTAKES ARE OK. I teared up and for the first time in my life I knew that I was truly free and where I needed to be. My FatherGod carried me all the way to nashville. Ebd Slavery and Branded Collective saved me from myself. Taught me positive, healthy skills that I apply to my daily life. Each piece is perfect from afar, look closer and see the imperfections and know that those are OK TOO. So when I look into the mirror today I still see every flaw but I remind myself, that's OK. That makes me so unique, theres only one KK out here. I'm perfectly imperfect and I love the woman I'm blossoming into. My foster mom gave me this verse to recite every morning before school and every night before bed. I repeated it for days, weeks, and months. Til it hit me one night and me and missy my foster mama, we were standing in my bathroom and reading the words she had wrote on the mirror. I felt a change in me and in the words I read. The words I've spoken over myself for months was finally taking hold of me and my life. 16 and completely just broken to the core or so I thought. The message came out of Psalms 139... I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE, MARVELOUS ARE YOUR WORKS, I AM BEAUTIFUL AND I WILL THINK POSITIVE. Anyone whose reads this, put this verse as part of your life now. It is now my time to share this with others who hurt, depressed, with drawn or going through some things. Speak this over your life, over your babies lives, it will soon come to pass and the change will come over you like a warm fuzzy blanket holding you. Yes tears will be shed, not for sorrow, but for breaking through those barriers and free ourselves from. We are all strong, courageous, loving, compassionate, THE DAUGHTER OF THE MOST HIGH. STRAIGHTEN YOUR CROWNS LADIES ABD GIVE ME THE BIGGEST, THE LOUDEST "HELL YEAH"!!!! FIND YOUR VOICE, FIND YOUR ROAR, WE ALL HAVE. I LOVE EACH AND EVERYONE SO MUCH. THANK YAL FOR THE SUPPORT, THE WORDS OF LOVE, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND FREEDOM. MY NAME IS KK. I LOVE LIFE. I STRUGGLE BUT I DO NOT QUIT. IMA CRY FIRST BUT IMA BOSS UP BABYGIRL! IM PERFECT IN MY IMPERFECTIONS, GOD IS WITHIN HER, FOR WHO CAN BE AGAINST HER. I WOULD LOVE FOR ANYONE WHOSE AT PEACE RIGHT NOW IN THEIR LIVES OR STRUGGLING. I WANT TO GIVE BACK WHAT OTHERS HAVE GIVEN MYSELF. Krystal.slavick@yahoo.com this is my email. I dont care day, night,early,late. If I say I'm here for you then that's what it is. All of yal have a blessed and wonderful day. Miss lauren I miss you so much. I miss your amazing hugs. I miss the sternness that came out so beautifully and talked with me. I kiss your wonderful smile and your outlook on life. Miss Em, oh how i miss those beautiful vibrant eyes of yours in the morning. Your soft voices helped me become more loving. Miss Laurel, you are such a hustler girl...always doing shows a d packed all weekend long for you to come back to work with encouragement and thankfulness. No complaints or refusing to do it. All 3 of you will forever be in my heart. Yal loved me the day yal met me remember how I would laugh so much it would get yal going. Laughter is healing and very contagious. Tears are healing and heartfelt. Yal taught me both are OK. Always have FAITH OVER FEAR.

Thank you PB for the beautiful earrings. I received them as a birthday gift from my mother. I saw in your bio that you hope to live in Africa some day. I was fortunate to be able to visit Africa a few years ago while my mom was working there as a professor of nursing at a university. It was so beautiful, and I was so happy to meet the many Tanzanians who welcomed my mom into their lives. I hope that you are able to travel to and live in Africa in the future and experience the same loving, gracious welcome as my mother.

RO, I read your story, and it made me cry even as I smiled. I was very much the same as a kid; I knew no stranger and loved making friends. Remember; it is a strong person who experiences the cruelties of the world and continue to be kind. Your kindness, your hope, is your strength. And I hope you continue using it to light more people's hearts as you have mine.

RO your bracelet is so valuable to me. It is a constant reminder that thanks to Jesus, we are all saved from what the world brands us with. I am so encouraged by how God is working in your life, and I hope that my story can affect others the way yours has. God is using you in a powerful way. And the song "You take what the enemy meant for evil and you turn it for good" rings so loudly when I think of the absolute injustice you've experienced. But the enemy does not get the final say. He does not win. Thank God your story is just beginning. I'm praying for you.

You are a mighty warrior in the army of a powerful King! Wear your armor proudly, especially your chestplate of righteousness. From time to time your crown will slip, straighten it back up, turn to your Father and ask him to deliver on his promises as his word is never void. โ€œThe eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy before you and said, 'Destroy.'โ€ โ€ญโ€ญDeuteronomyโ€ฌ โ€ญ33:27โ€ฌ โ€ญESVโ€ฌโ€ฌ I am declaring victory in your mighty name KK! You are more than a conqueror and you are also clothed with strength and dignity. That underground refuge in Wales will be yours, prophesying this over your life. Stand tall, dig deep as you have already overcome the worst days of your life. You are victorious and I am proud of you and will wear my ring proudly in honor of you! I love you sister in Christโค๏ธAlways Trish

Thank you for the opportunity to learn about your organization and the amazing artisans you employ. As a librarian, I believe words have power and PBโ€™s bracelet that simply states, โ€œI am enough,โ€ is a powerful statement. I am grateful to be wearing PBโ€™s words on my wrist everyday as a reminder that everyoneโ€™s stories are interwoven and we, as a people, are only as good as the worst any one of us is experiencing right now. We all need to work to end trafficking and this bracelet is a constant reminder and a chance to share PBโ€™s story, along with so many others, to bring awareness and change. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
