The Priceless Journey has been given a tremdendous opportunity to share the heart behind our book You are Priceless with a Pscychology class at Biola University. They currently use the book to better understand the mind of those who have been or are being trafficked. We are beyond thrilled to work with Laura Dryjanska, Assistant Professor of Psychology to equip and mobilize students to become part of the solution to end human trafficking. Thank you Laura for the incredible opportunity to partner with you in the fight!
Here is more information on the class…
