We’ve all faced circumstances that have held us captive in some regard. What has held you captive? How did you find your purpose?
I was held captive and raped by my ex’s uncle. Only for a few hours, and yet, they were some of the most disgusting hours I have ever experienced. However, I have not allowed that brief moment in time to keep me in chains. I decided long ago that while he may have stolen that one period of time from my life for his own selfish purposes, I would never allow him to have control of the rest of my life by remaining in a thought process of fear, mistrust of other human beings, etc. My purpose is now and has always been to be an example of grace, strength, determination and integrity to my children and everyone else I come in contact with.
CAPTIVE, based on a miraculous true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is a thrilling drama about the spiritual collision of two broken lives. When Brian Nichols – on the run as the subject of a city wide manhunt and desperate to make contact with his newborn son – takes recovering meth addict Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment, she turns for guidance to Rick Warren’s best-selling inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life. While reading aloud, Ashley and her would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.
One lucky winner is going to receive their very own copy of Ashley Smith’s book, CAPTIVE. Read our full review to find out more about this amazing story.
Captive will be in theaters this Friday, September 18, 2015 so be sure to get your tickets! We have a special treat to offer you as well – a chance to talk one-on-one with Ashley during the teleconference and Twitter party on Tuesday, September 16. See the review for all of the details!
