I am big on names with meaning—names that root us in some kind of history or hope. They have a beauty all their own. Every part of my name has one or two tie-ins to my family history. And I was deeply blessed to have my middle name—Clare—passed on to my amazing little niece—Mariclare. This [...]
I was recently blessed to spend two days with my leadership team in Food for the Hungry’s (FH) Resource and Program Development (RPD) Department. We started the two-day annual planning meeting with FH leaders from around the world reflecting on signs of God’s grace in our lives and in FH field programs. We concluded our [...]
November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – a day each of us can think about steps we can take to end abuse. According to numbers recently released by the Untied Nations (U.N.), one of the many ways women endure violence is modern-day slavery. The U.N. estimates that today [...]
I’ve been on my own personal mission lately to find quality Christian music that I can enjoy…. if your like me, you may be laughing at the impossibility of this concept. Quality Christian music? Okay, maybe I’m the only glass half empty hater out there, but I’ve had a hard time digesting the canned overly [...]
Just over two years ago I found myself facing every parent’s worst nightmare. My 15-month-old son suddenly began showing some very strange symptoms. He suddenly was not able to walk on one of his legs. After feeling it all over and realizing he did not seem to be in any type of pain I decided [...]
how much is enough?
We’ve prayed and sympathized with those who lost everything in Superstorm Sandy (and some of you reading this may have even been affected). Living through a disaster is a hard experience. Today I’d like to introduce you some people who have suffered through two earthquakes and landslides in China’s Yunnan Province. The quakes, measuring [...]
I’m in the Dominican Republic this week, where I have the incredible privilege of joining my Food for the Hungry (FH) colleagues from all over Latin America as we work together to learn how to build a new model of programming in our field countries. We call it “Child-Focused Community Transformation” (CFCT), which is FH’s “essentials” [...]
Feeling the need to encourage my younger sister-in-law to vote, I said to her, “I don’t care if you vote for exactly who your parents tell you to vote for. Your vote is VERY important. And that means a lot, because I can assure you that your parents probably vote very differently than I do!” I believe, a vote is more than just a voice. A vote holds with it the hope of the world; that justice can reign on earth, as it does in heaven.
Slang in America Chick. Gal. Dame. Babe. Diva. Girly. Lass. Mama. Ma’am. Lady. Woman. Female. You’ve probably heard one or many of these words in your lifetime. And upon hearing one of these words and without being told, I’m guessing you immediately thought of a specific gender. It’s incredible to think about the linguistic cultural [...]
