Special Bonus Episode with Karen Curry Parker! Living with Conviction by Toby Dorr

July 2022 - 20mins 25seconds
Interested in learning about Toby Dorr and her story? Our very own Karen Curry Parker gives a special episode to explain who she is.

“None of us are our worst mistakes.

 We are all a culmination of all the things we’ve done in our life.

 And one mistake that we make should not be the thing that we’re judged by.”

 Toby Dorr in her bestselling memoir, Living with Conviction: Unexpected Sisterhood, Healing, and Redemption in the Wake of Life-Altering Choices

Toby made a conscious choice to use her twenty-seven months in prison as a time to heal and make new choices about her life. Her turning point was when she was at her lowest, during her second time in suicide watch. The revelation she found during her time in isolation is what Toby says gave her life purpose and direction.

None of us is our worst mistake.

Nor are any of us inherently bad or incapable of reform and change. The topic of why people commit crimes has come up over and over again. The answer is simple.


By teaching that your life and your value are not defined by your worst mistake, Toby pushes people to move beyond the confines of their circumstances and live each moment with conviction, allowing its fullest, most beautiful potential to unfold.

“My hope is that each child that reads this first book in the series, that they would walk away with the knowledge that they are worthy just because they’re on this earth.

Just because they’re here.

They’re here for a reason, they’re here for a purpose, and they have a calling on their life.”
