A Voice Undefeated

  • Description: Raye's autobiography, A Voice Undefeated, gives readers a down-to-earth account of the author's personal and professional life. From his childhood in Arkansas and Texas through his days with the Wray Brothers Band in Oregon and Reno to his rise to international stardom, this book is both a journey to the top of the music world and an intimate diary of a soul that has suffered great professional and personal losses. Many who love Collin Raye, the successful country music artist, don't know much about Collin Raye, the man, and the many trials he has endured with faith and courage. Most recently his beloved nine-year-old granddaughter, Haley, died in 2010 from an undiagnosed neurological disease. Since Haley's death, Collin has become an advocate for the sick and disabled and has established the Haley Bell Blesséd Chair Foundation to provide wheelchairs to families with special needs children. This is a remarkable, inspirational story told by the man who lived it. It is a story of faith, of struggle, of suffering, of profound love, and ultimately of triumph in the midst of tragedy.

Triune Health Group v. HHS Mandate

  • Description: "Chris and Mary Anne Yep and their company, Triune Health Group, filed a lawsuit against both the HHS and the Illinois “Birth Control Mandate.” The Yeps and Triune, recently named by Crain’s Chicago Business as the Best Place to Work for Women in the Chicago metro area, sued the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (“HHS”), the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the Illinois Department of Insurance, in an attempt to stop the Mandates’ requirements that they supply employee health insurance coverage for abortifacients, contraceptives, and sterilizations. Their lawsuit against the HHS Mandate is currently pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, before Judge Amy J. St. Eve. Their claims against the Illinois Mandate have been split off into a separate lawsuit, pending in Sangamon County Circuit Court, before Judge Belz."
