But instead, I decided to embrace the new season Vitoria and I were e...

  • Who Have You Invited to Your Table?
    For years I traveled, I still travel, with Compassion International to the countries where this ministry serves children living in desperate poverty. I’ve ducked into hidden, impossibly small, damp alleys – to get to a child. I’ve descended underground, dodging severed wires and waste – to get to a child. I’ve trekked up steep, dusty, sun-battered trails – all to get to a child. In Peru, in Ugan...

  • How to Raise Brave Kids in a World Keeping Them Afraid
    If you were to ask my brother about our childhood he would jokingly tell you that we were raised by wolves. My parents let us take risks and have adventures. In fact, their favorite thing to say to us on a Saturday morning was, “Go outside and have an adventure and don’t come back until you do.” Putri and her friends racing through the palm trees in Indonesia.
