    Behind the Scenes: A Special interview by Jerry Hughes

    Behind the Scenes: A Special interview by Jerry Hughes

    When I wrote my second book, "I Am Third: Redeeming the Pain" (our journey through parenting and adoption), I never expected to make a friend like Jerry Hughes, Founder of the Hughes Foundation, let-alone be interviewed by him for my podcast.  Jerry is a new friend I made after relocating to India in June 2021, and a reader who was deeply touched by the words I penned. In all honesty, he was not "the kind of person" I was imagining when I thought about who would be in my audience of readers.  In the interview, our personalities (and friendship) allowed us to be raw, honest and comical.  I hope that you will be encouraged to #LiveYourStory and maybe even pick up a copy of my book as a tool to help you grow forward.

    Understanding Culture Series: "Expectations & Culture" with Sanchiyta K

    Understanding Culture Series: "Expectations & Culture" with Sanchiyta K

    When we take into consideration the expectations in a culture, we redirect forced assimilation and not only experience better dialogue with those different than us, but we become companions for those struggling to fit and belong.

    Understanding Culture Series: "Race & Culture" with Grace (Thuo) Kelley

    Understanding Culture Series: "Race & Culture" with Grace (Thuo) Kelley

    The RACE conversation is often at the heart of many debates while CULTURAL understanding is ignored and often misunderstood.  I believe we need to do a better job of understanding the culture of a person or people group so we can grow forward together, while remembering and learning about systemic ways people are oppressed.

Thought provoking and insightful

I’m a firm believer that we can often learn the most from the experience of others. The host is able to synthesize those experiences into bite sized, memorable anecdotes that I find myself thinking about days later. It’s definitely worth a listen!
