Innocence Stolen, Trust Betrayed Innocence Stolen, Trust Betrayed is the story of a young teenage girl whose life was turned upside down by a charismatic youth pastor who took advantage of his position and the trust placed in him to sexually abuse her. Her story is unimaginable and heartbreaking, yet there is hope in the end.  

Sandy Kirkham is one of the most courageous women you will ever meet. In sharing her true story we begin to see how profoundly damaging it is to be betrayed by your spiritual mentor at such a young age, and how long the road can be to trust again.”—Martin Doblmeier, Award-winning filmmaker, Journey Films
