Who gets placed in the category of “those kinds of people” in your mind?

In my childhood and, sadly, in my classification system as an adult, many different kinds of people were referred to that way.

Are they people with more money, less money, more education, or no education? 

People who have been loved in a safe environment or have never experienced love and are searching for it in the wrong places?


Today I am talking with Rachelle Star, founder of Scarlet Hope.

When she was only twenty-three years old, Rachelle felt called to love some of  ‘those kinds of people’ and started going to strip clubs to share Christ’s love with the dancers. Having founded a Christian ministry to people in the adult entertainment industry, she demonstrates the key to shining Christ’s light into the darkness–love people one at a time and continue to love them no matter what.

In this episode, Rachelle will share how:

  • Loving others as Jesus did has to be more than social media shares and likes
  • How God used “Scarlet Hope” in Mary’s incredible story of redemption 
  • The hope we can share with people of God’s redemption in our community

I love hearing your stories and knowing how I can pray for you.
