“Victim Is Not Your Name is highly engaging and an easy read, but don’t misunderstand; it is full of life changing golden nuggets for all of us. The applications target living life to the fullest, as well as overcoming the adversities of victimhood—something many of us have experienced and I dare say, all of us have dealt with. Kelly Bennett’s work has inspired me to, among other things, throw some stuff away, breathe, and yes, I’ve got a gratitude stone I’m going to start carrying with me. This book also reinforced my commitment to, first thing in morning, read the Word, pray, and think great thoughts!” ~ DENNIS G.

“Victim Is Not Your Name should be required reading for all of us. Don’t we all, at times, find ourselves slipping into feeling sorry for ourselves? Wallowing in self-pity? Kelly Bennett reminds us that we have a choice in whether we are to remain victims. Over the past thirty-five years in the legal profession, I have worked with countless victims. Many have been female sexual assault victims. Others are male combat veterans suffering from severe PTSD and depression. I can tell you, Kelly’s advice is spot on. People get trapped in a perception of themselves as a victim. They never move on. Kelly gives them the tools to do that. I know Kelly personally and have sought her for advice at trying times in my life. She is one of the best lawyers in California and a first class mediator. Few could deliver this message with the humility and authority she does. I particularly loved the chapter on forgiveness, and Kelly’s words: ‘Forgiveness is an amazing gift you give to yourself–a freeing of the soul.’ Lovely.”
