For many of us the beginning of a new year brings questions of how we want to live. We reflect on the past year – our successes and failures – and maybe we feel like we can learn from the past, “get over” hang ups and start anew. We know the challenges of our world [...]
As I work in Church Engagement at Food for the Hungry, one of my great joys is to watch churches partner through child sponsorship. I love this way of engaging a church because it allows every individual and family in the church to get personally involved. A Unique Relationship Have you ever stopped to consider [...]
Today, we are sacrificing the quality of our interactions, for quantity. But we must be good listeners if we want to End Poverty.
As an American college student, it was pretty easy for me to fall into the the mindset of “they don’t know what they are missing out on, so they are happy with less.” Then I met Jamal. Jamal was the same age as me and loved all things American. His dirty clothes and borrowed bed told [...]
Tragedies like the one in Newtown, Conn., or the lesser known school stabbings in China, make us keenly aware for our need for light in dark situations. Maybe it’s just me, but walking into a shopping mall and hearing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” (again), doesn’t do it. But there are so, so, so many other [...]
You never forget your first National Geographic moment. Mine was in 2007… Rwanda. I was interning for Food for the Hungry (FH) as student photojournalist.

Remember when people from around the world collaborated together on a massive quilt that completely covered The Mall in Washington DC? Remember when future Hall-of-Fame Basketball great, Magic Johnson, shocked the world by retiring early and revealing he was HIV-positive? For those of us that are considered Millenials (or Generation Y if you prefer), we’ve lived through a transformation. Arguably, one of the greatest societal shifts in perceptions and attitudes.
Thanksgiving Day is coming. And I’m going through a list of what I’m thankful for in my life. God has blessed me with a great job, home, friends, family and pets! I’ve got so much to be thankful for in my life. Even so, now and again, I get the blues about my life. I [...]
I’ve spent the past two nights reading to my niece from Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones (with captivating illustrations by Jago). I am so glad to be reading her a book about God that says so much more than,“Don’t be a bad girl;” or “Be a good girl.” While abstract concepts [...]
