Candlelight Serenade Acoustic Festival


I have never worked on anything so hard in my entire life. I spent 6 months of my life organizing, executing, and raising the money to put on this concert for Child Rescue. It was overwhelming, exhausting, and a huge learning experience for me. I am so glad that it is over and that I get to be with my little boys more (even though I was working out of the house). The concert was not the financial success we had hoped for but we were able to raise funds for local law enforement and vicitm services, but there was a huge amount of awareness that took place and people's were moved and are now apart of this anti-trafficking movement. I was humbled by all the help and support we received by generous sponsors, media, and volunteers. My dear friends and family that helped with this massive undertaking (you know who you are)..... you are my heart. I love you all. Please visit http://www.childrescue.org/ for more details about the cause and http://www.candlelightserenade.com/ for more info about the concert.




The Sweet Tooth Fairy was our Title sponsor. My dear friends own this company. Best cupcakes- but their cake bites are to DIE FOR! http://www.thesweettoothfairy.com/

Our Sea of Candles moment was the most emotional part. Each candle represented a victim.





Candlelight Serenade


Our sea of candles moment was epic. All 4,000+ people had a tea light Candle and we sang the Child Rescue theme song "Light in the Dark" in a tribute to children who are bought and sold as sex slaves in the United States. Child Prostitution and child pornography are human trafficking crimes and are horrific human rights issues. We can all help combat it.

So busy!


I have never been so busy in all my life. My two boys (three if you count Geoffey) and my work with Child Rescue and organizing this benefit concert leaves me with only a few spare moments to do my church calling, Rotary obligations, spend time with friends and family, do house cleaning, and maybe 5 hours a night for sleep. In honor of Geoff's birthday we went boating (I actually hung out for a few seconds). Mason and Milo came. Masey loves being outside. I really miss just being able to play with my little ones. I will cherish every moment I have with them- now and for forever. They are my life. They are my everything. xoxo

Candlelight Serenade Acoustic Festival



Hello all of my lovely friends and family! Please tell everyone you know about our benefit concert this summer. Spreading the word is essential in both amounting to a successful fundraiser and meeting our goals for Child Rescue's public awareness campaign.

It is unthinkable to me that children are trafficked in US let alone Utah. Little kids as young as 6 years old are sold as sex slaves in our own back yards. I spoke with the Attorney General's office recently about this issue and the Sectional Cheif Officer over the Division of Internet Crimes against children said that Utah has a major issue and one of the biggest reason it is happening is because people are so disgusted about this that they turn away. I know this subject is a dark issue but please do not turn away.

Please email, blog, facebook, twitter, or bring this up in conversations. If we collectively can generate enough puplic outrage we can in turn effect political will and help save children.

visit www.candlelightserenade.com for more info and or our website at www.rescuingkids.org

Thank you all. I love you for caring!
