'My Mom was home when I left.'
I have two asks. The first is that you stay with this story, as it has so many layers of the human spirit. As a story alone, it is remarkable.
My second ask as you listen, I want you to imagine you are my guest. Shelly Edwards Jorgensen.
Imagine driving up to your family home after a high school basketball practice to see your home consumed by fire.
At that moment, you know that your mom is dead and at the hands of your father.
This is a human journey no one would ask for or want. She had a horrific childhood, her mother was murdered by her father, and Shelly's testimony puts him away for seventeen years. He dies there before his sentence is complete.
Shelly finds a way to overcome her childhood trauma, the murder of her mom, and the emotional rollercoaster of testifying against her father, to find peace and a calling.
She even forgives her Father.
