 Our Description

At age eight, Ramona Treviño climbed to the top of a roof and begged God to let her know he was real. After receiving a sign, she made a pact with herself to follow him always. But family difficulties and growing pains made it hard for her to continue on that path. 

Pregnant at 16, she dropped out of high school and entered an abusive marriage, which ended in divorce. Wanting to make a difference and to help girls in similar tough situations, she accepted a job as the manager of a Planned Parenthood facility in Sherman, Texas. Over time, however, Ramona began to grapple with whether she was doing women more harm than good, setting her on a path to seek the truth, no matter where it might lead.

Realizing she could no longer refer women for abortions or provide them with false assurances of risk-free sex, Ramona took a leap of faith and left the financial security of her job. Her ultimate conversion involved a full return to the Catholic faith of her childhood and a new role as a pro-life advocate and speaker.

This compelling story tells of Ramona’s struggle to reconcile her identity as a daughter of God with a world that sends conflicting messages concerning the source of our dignity and happiness. It is the honest and heartfelt account of a woman who, with the help of grace, strove to overcome the wounds of her own past while becoming an agent of healing for others.

Ramona Treviño, devoted wife and mother, is a lifelong resident of Trenton, TX. After her exodus from Planned Parenthood, Ramona became an international public speaker and prolife advocate, speaking for the dignity and sanctity of life. She is proud to be called prolife, pro-woman, and pro-family.

Roxane Salonen has worked in professional communications for more than twenty years, including as an award-winning columnist, reporter, children’s author, and freelance writer. The wife and mother has also been a radio host, a communications director, and an editor for the Diocese of Fargo, North Dakota.
