"An Unimaginable Act is a wake-up call to society on a silent epidemic one brave confident woman refuses to stay silent about. Through the trauma and obstacles she has faced in her life, Erin takes readers on a remarkable journey of resilience, faith, courage, and forgiveness. She shares how she turned tragedy into triumph, which has led her on an unstoppable crusade to give children the voice she never had as a child through a very important law that will protect children for generations to come."
--Julianna Margulies, Actress
"Erin Merryn: a fearless woman after God's own heart. She has trail blazed the dark territory of child abuse and has brought a healing light to the hurting. Her crusade across America, to mandate child abuse prevention education, is etched on our minds; her spirit and fearlessness awakes and stirs the hearts of all who are touched by her compassion."
"Erin Merryn is a dynamic Christian young lady who shares her tragic testimony of how she was abused growing up, but once she was able to open up, God set her free. She is one of the best speakers we have ever heard and her story will help millions."
--Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, parents of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting
"Erin's Law gives our country the chance to ensure that the children of our nation have the information and tools necessary to recognize and report abuse. Children need to be informed about sexual abuse in a structured and safe environment, so that they know there are people who will help keep them safe. My support of Erin's Law stems from my own family's history of sexual abuse and their lack of information on prevention and disclosure. I am proof that prevention is possible, and so I am grateful to Erin Merryn for taking the pain she experienced and turning it in to a national crusade to educate our youth."
--Mallory Hagan, Miss America 2013
"Erin embodies the type of courageous leadership needed to address today's social justice issues--not only speaking out on behalf of children suffering abuse, but working to change the law in order to protect future generations for years to come. As a mother, I consider her a role model for my three daughters."
"Thank you Erin. For sharing your story. For standing up for us. Giving us a voice. Making a difference that will mean our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren will have a chance for a better life. Truly. Amazed. Beyond words."
