Pursuing a life of purpose requires a fierce determination to not quit when faced with adversity. Expect it, plan for it, and it will come.

On October 14, the film In Plain Sight premiered at the Crest Theatre in California. As the founder and CEO of Courage Worldwide, an international, non-profit organization dedicated to building homes around the world to house children who have been the victims of sex trafficking, Jenny Williamson believes the documentary about hope and freedom for survivors of sex trafficking, is of vital importance. The #Notinmycity campaign was also launched at the premiere. Those involved aim to get proclamations in the fight against sex trafficking in cities nationwide; the audience even chanted the phrase.
The premiere of In Plain Sight, which is narrated and Executive Produced by Natalie Grant, was a sold out event with 450 VIPs including community leaders, government officials, and law enforcement. There was a panel of experts, which included Williamson and her adopted daughter, Liz, who is a survivor of this worldwide plight.
Williamson, who continues to head Courage Worldwide, is currently very busy. After the success of the premiere, media outlets will be running stories about the organization in the coming months. Williamson will have a lot on her plate: in April her book Do You Have the Courage to Be You? will launch through Next Century Publishing. The book's title is modeled after the question that radically changed her life, setting her on a path away from a boring, predictable life and towards the unknown. Williamson hopes to inspire others to take similar changes and live with courage.
In Plain Sight will have over 20 screenings at businesses and churches in January, with many other venues across the nation expressing interest. The film also has several other premieres planned.
