In the margins of parenting a 17, 14, and 11-year old, Beth Bruno directs a non-profit aimed at preventing domestic minor sex trafficking and regularly speaks to students, law enforcement, educators and community groups around the topic of sexual exploitation. Her first book, A Voice Becoming: A Yearlong Mother-Daughter Journey into Passionate, Purposed Living (FaithWords), released on January 16, 2018. Beth is a proud member of Redbud Writer's Guild, a regular contributor for Red Tent Living, and a writer for various online publications.
In this interview, Beth talks about her journey to becoming a writer when the concept of being “a creative” originally didn’t seem like a worthwhile direction. As we investigate our dreams, she encourages us to ask a few key questions like: What brings you to tears? What stirs you to sacrifice time and money? Who are the people you feel passionate about? Figuring out who those “others” are that we’re called to serve is one of our greatest priorities.
Beth also shares her passion for activating women (and their daughters) to link arms with our global sisters around the world and bring the fullness of who we are to God's kingdom. Her book illustrates her passion for mothers to lead their pre-teen daughters through a year of meaningful conversations, engagement and actions that will give them a bigger vision to live for than the common need to find love, fit in and belong.
This was such a powerful conversation! I pray you not only enjoy hearing about Beth’s journey toward her dream but also about the dream itself, which is so inspirational, especially if you have a daughter.
