I want to hear

Blog post by FH blogger Raechel Myers I’ve been home from Guatemala now for 48 hours. I don’t know what I expected. Maybe I thought I’d have processed things a bit more by now. In some ways I definitely have, but I have a feeling this is something I’ll be unpacking for years to come. […]

I am enough. I have enough.

Blog post by FH blogger Allison Vesterfelt I’m still in Guatemala, and if I had to use one word to describe my time here, I would use this word: hospitality. Honestly, this is a huge value of mine. I grew up in a family who offered meals and beds to anyone who needed them, anytime, […]
