As I grumbled today about the fact that my home was broken into recently, and how I’ve struggled to feel safe again after the break-in, a little sign in my kitchen challenged my mindset. I traveled to Haiti in November 2010, ten months after the horrific earthquake physically and emotionally devastated millions. We visited several [...]

As America’s debate about our spiraling deficit and global recession boils on the front burner, a group of pastors and leaders of faith-based organizations have circled up to protect “the least of these.” These Christians are referring to Matthew 25:45, in which Jesus declares that not helping the world’s most impoverished and vulnerable people is [...]
See How President Obama and Governor Romney Express Their Views on Hunger. I’m encouraged that my colleagues at Bread for the World and the Circle of Protection group have inserted the topic of poverty into the presidential election.

There is no doubt that any election is an important and historical event. We should care about elected leaders, their ideas and what they stand for.

There are quite a few words in my household that we just don’t allow. No swear words. No bathroom words. No disrespectful words. With kids in elementary school, it’s a constant conversation! We try to live up to what Paul told the Ephesians. “Don’t let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only [...]
It had been a hard trip – my first out of North America. I wasn’t feeling well, and I found the sights and smells to be overwhelming – almost sickening. I couldn’t find anything to eat that didn’t upset my stomach, and I felt unusually irritable about pretty much everything. But I was on a [...]
An astute reader of Food for the Hungry’s posts on Facebook asked a great question about our Labor Day photo album, featuring people around the world at work: “As I look through these photos, I notice that a majority of them are about women. Are they just more photogenic or is this indicative of something [...]
