    PERFECT VICTIM-Carla Norton

    in Entertainment

    Hitchhiking from Eugene, Ore., through northern California in 1977, 20-year-old Colleen Stan thumbed a ride into hell. Her kidnappers a sadistic lumber mill worker, Cameron Hooker, and his battered wife Janice subjected her to seven years of torture and sensory deprivation. She was made a sex slave, kept locked in a wooden box and brainwashed into believing that an underground network of sadists would recapture her if she attempted to escape. Did Colleen fall in love with Cameron and make herself a willing partner in a love triangle, as the Hookers' defense lawyer asserted? The jury found otherwise, convinced by the evidence marshalled by coauthor McGuire, state prosecutor in the case, a trial that journalist Norton attended in 1984. Not for the squeamish, this harrowing tale shuttles between the courtroom and the grisly doings in the Hookers' basement. PERFECT VICTIM-The True Story of "The Girl In The Box" by the D.A. Who Prosecuted Her Captor-Carla Norton

    Leah worked as a prostitute and "Bottom girl" around the United States, mainly California, Scottsdale, Arizona, Washington, D.C and Texas for almost three years, while being beaten brutally by her pimp even after she became pregnant with his son. 


    On May 13th, 2011 Leah was arrested with her pimp, when he was discovered recruiting two under age girls, who were really undercover FBI Agents.  After being tried as a suspect and signing a plea for seven years, Leah was given a second chance to prove her innocent about her involvement with her pimp.  


    After turning her life around for the better, on March 4th, 2015 she shared her story with CBS News titled "A Better Arizona" broadcasted locally on television.  After this airing, Leah began to get anxious about saving other women who were still in that particular lifestyle and created a video for her Facebook channel.  


    Leah's dream has always been to sell high valued real estate, but has dedicated her time to finish the mission to save other women by educating the community, churches, legislature and schools, to prevent this tragedy from happening to their loved ones.

    Leaving the Victim Mentality

    in Self Help

    Many of us are caught up in the victim mentality. This could be due to a traumatic childhood or things that occured to us as adults that we had no control of. We were in fact victims to at least something at one point in our lives, but some have been victim to many odds against them. As we grow older, when we have not healed from a lot of these things, we can remain in a victim mentality. We may now be adults or even older in general (for those underage listening), but are still responding to situations as if we have no power or no part to play in where we find ourselves even when we are not a victim. 


    I have remained in the victim mentality for years. I am still growing from it, but I would like to share how it has affected others and myself with my past decisions. Also, to share my growth in everything.


    I just hope that this show will encourage others and even myself to slowly move out of the victim mentality. Yes, sometimes bad things happen to us and we are victims. We do live in a fallen world and God allows things for various reasons. However, we should not remain in a state of helplessness when God is glady willing to help us overcome and grow from our current state.


    Romans 12:21 "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good."


    Philippians 3:13,14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
