    Summary: 
    Becca Stevens founded Thistle Farms and the Magdalene residential community as safe places for women recovering from violence, prostitution, addiction, and life on the streets to be employed and live, learn, and heal. Her claims of healing through the liniments and oils of Thistle Farms go beyond the body and she tells how the story of hope, renewal, and dreams of healing come through the people who make it all possible.
