If you have ever met or witnessed Beth Holloway speak, you know that she is one of the most courageous, inspirational and strong individuals you will ever heard. With all of the pain, anguish and torment that Beth has been through in the “roller-coaster” ride that she and her family went through in Aruba with law enforcement, the court system and the investigation into the disappearance of her missing daughter, Natalee Holloway, Beth remains positive and a person of faith.
How does one muster the courage to persevere in the face of sheer adversity? Do we all have the capacity to overcome tragedy? How does one keep going? You will be uplifted by the remarkable story of Beth Holloway. How does she stay strong? Imagine being able to apply her philosophies of courage, dedication, faith and strength to your own life.
Her life changed quite dramatically in the summer of 2005 when her daughter Natalee disappeared on the last night of her senior high graduation trip to Aruba. This tragic story became the leading news mystery when it happened, and continues to make headlines today. Barbara Walters selected Beth Holloway as one of the world’s most fascinating people for her perseverance in seeking answers to what happened to Natalee.
Beth has delivered her message of hope, faith and personal safety to young adults and people of all ages all across the United States. We are honored to have this nationally known speaker come to our community.

UPDATE I: Beth Holloway: ‘Never give up hope’.
She hasn’t seen justice in her daughter’s death, but even that didn’t snuff Beth Holloway’s hope. She presented the stories of other families looking for missing loved ones and founded the Natalee Holloway Resource Center.
“After all I’ve been through, and all my family’s been through, I have a right to crawl in a hole and never come out — but that’s not how I want to live my life,” she said. “I found myself asking what I can do to teach others from our tragic situation.”
Beth Holloway praised Gingerbread House staff members and supporters for their role in nurturing hope. Gingerbread House serves children who have suffered physical and sexual abuse.
“You are proactively working to save these children from their abusers,” she said.
Its not just about Natalee Holloway, its about ever person who travels abroad. This is just one of the many aspects of this case that make to compelling to so many. It is not just about one missing girl, its about millions of potential travelers.
TWITTY: Well, Nancy, first, I`d like to say that, you know, it`s not just Natalee and it`s not just Natalee`s last shot at justice. What we have, Nancy, we have millions and millions and millions of Americans who travel internationally every year. And what we are learning from Natalee is that, you know, the challenges that you will face should you find a loved one a victim of a crime in a foreign country. Your United States constitutional rights do not apply in other countries, and it`s been a hard life lesson for us to learn. There is no recourse. We faced jurisdictional issues, extradition every — every step of the way. And it`s just hard to know the right turns to make. I mean, we`re doing the best that we can to see what can be done for an American citizen who`s a victim of a crime in a foreign country.
Beth Twitty spoke to a captive Kentucky “victims rights” crowd regarding the safety of their children traveling abroad and at home.
Twitty told reporters it’s been a long search trying to find her daughter and the people responsible for her disappearance. She spoke Wednesday to other crime victims about coping with the aftermath of a family tragedy.
Many do not understand people’s fascination with the Natalee Holloway disappearance, or are bitter that other cases do not get the same attention. These people look at the Natalee Holloway coverage in a myopic manner. They think that the attention that the MSM has given one case hurts other cases when in fact it is just the opposite.
Beth Twitty later today will bring her Project “Save Yourself” to Muncie, IN and Ball State University. As Beth Twitty stated why she began the project, “I always said I wanted to give something back. This is a way to show our gratitude.”
Twitty will speak at 5 p.m. in the Ball State University Student Center. The program is sponsored by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department and is free to all area high school and college students. Twitty recently spoke to The Star about “Save Yourself.”
Q: What do you hope to accomplish with your speaking engagements (Save Yourself Program)?
A: Our ultimate goal is to provide information to help young people be safe when traveling on their own. This is the time when lots of students will be heading to warmer climates for spring break. I just want them to think about their safety.
