Best Selling Author Elizabeth Smart to Headline YMCA’s 22nd Annual Celebration of Prayer

Please join us for the 22nd Annual YMCA Celebration of Prayer, a community-wide prayer breakfast event that ushers in the Easter season and unites our community in faith, prayer, and understanding.

7 a.m.
First Baptist Church of Orlando
3000 S. John Young Parkway
Orlando, Fl 32805 

This year's guest speaker will be New York Times best selling author, Elizabeth Smart.  

When Elizabeth, at age 14, was abducted from her Utah home in June 2002, it became one of the most widely known child abduction cases of our time. Following her safe return to her family, Elizabeth bravely testified against her captor, thus revealing the private nightmare she endured for nine months.

Today, as an inspirational speaker and the New York Times best-selling author of “My Story,” Elizabeth shares how her deep faith helped her survive and recover from the ordeal. She has also emerged as a leading child safety advocate. Through the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, she has promoted the national AMBER Alert, as well as legislation to prevent further child abductions.

Now married and attending Brigham Young University, Elizabeth is a sought-after speaker whose message of faith, hope, and empowerment inspires others to overcome adversity and lead fuller, purposeful lives.
