Jessa & John Crisp

Host: Dr. James Dobson

March 01, 2023

Did you know that there are over 27 million victims of human trafficking worldwide? Or that the majority of victims who are sex trafficked are defenseless girls and women? For Jessa Dillow Crisp, she experienced horror at the hands of her biological family. Even worse, she was sex trafficked at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada where people profited from her pain. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jessa shares her story with Dr. James Dobson and how God provided an escape for her at the age of 21 with a path toward restoration. Today, Jessa is a ray of light, helping others. With her testimony and professional skills in counseling and recovery, she has a mission to help others escape some of the darkest sins that humans commit against one another.
