When Amanda’s daughter was taken from her arms at her local grocery store in a thwarted trafficking abduction, she came face-to-face, quite literally, with America’s child sex trade crisis. Uniquely qualified, Amanda penned best-seller, Unraveled: Mothering Fiercely in a World Full of Fears and more than 60 million people read her viral warning. As a degreed public speaker, her mission and message include her ground-breaking advocacy research providing solutions based on the correlation between strong families and a child's immunity to trafficking and “trafficking as business”.
Amanda is founder of Able Moms International, Vigilant Families, the first-ever predator-proof video resource library for parents and children, and Legacy Academy - A University-Model® School. Before staying home with her five kiddos, Amanda’s professional career included awards and high heels as the top 1% of sales and development managers for an international industry leader. Amanda loves sunsets, answered prayers, a clean house, movies that tell a good, true story, and finding money in her pocket. Her big, Italian-Polish family and German Shepherd enjoy welcoming guests into their peace-filled Colorado home.
Hannah Redden is a lover of justice, truth, people, and Jesus. Her fight against injustice started within her own family in her early 20’s and since then her passion has only grown.

They reside together in the great cowboy state of Wyoming on a little mountain farm. They have horses, goats, chickens, dogs and whatever else Hannah can convince her husband they need to bring home. In addition to loving all things animals, beauty, kids, and advocacy Hannah LOVES a good cup of coffee and while she’s an avid healthy eater 99% of the time, cake (especially the corner piece) is her weakness. As an enneagram 8w9 she is known for being the one you call when you need a good swift and honest kick in the butt perfectly paired with sass, honesty, love, and a sprinkle of humor.
