They were poor.  Generations before them were poor, and nothing had changed.  Three children to support and not enough money.  Then, they got sick.  One could blame many things for the illness, but blame doesn't cure.  So she died.  He was left alone with mouths to fee...

153 million orphans.  That is the number we hear as the catalyst to “do something.”  What should we do?  Where do all those children come from?  Where are they all living?

The number of ‘orphans’ is slightly misleading to American ears.  There are 153 mil...

When I think of entering the murky waters of writing about orphan care, I remember a day at the beach a few summers ago when we were visiting the States.  We were camping close to July 4th, so things were crowded.  As we made our way to the beach, the shore was packed!...

Did God show up for you?

You saw God in a new way; you called him by a new name.  He was the “One who truly sees me.”  (Genesis 16:13)...

Are you OK?  Really?

I want to be fine.  In today’s world of fast and easy, to admit that things are hard and not ‘ok’ is not exciting or interesting.  People want success and enthusiasm along with the next big project.
