By her own account, Ashley Smith Robinson is far from an angel or a hero. Yet today, her face is known around the world as the single mother who persuaded Brian Nichols, Atlanta's courtroom killer, to surrender to police. Nichols called Ashley "an angel sent from God", but, ironically, it was Ashley's less-than-angelic past that allowed her to convince him to face justice.

Among her few possessions was a copy of Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life." She was on chapter 32-"Using What God Gave You." During her seven hours as Nichols' hostage, she read from this chapter and encouraged him to consider how he might be able to serve God if he surrendered, which he did the following morning.

Ashley believes that God led her through her dark hours with Nichols, and has called her to use the highly publicized experience to help unlikely angels everywhere find hope.
