I am not the only fan. TOMS carries a JOYN line and has features Mel’s story as well. But it wasn’t until I stumbled on THE FIND by the fabulous team at LGH.TV that

Each product is named after one of the women in their program in Ethiopia. Each tag has her hand written name and a glimpse into how the purchase of that particular product is helping change her

#standwithme – The DC Premier

Last night, I had the absolute honor of taking my 8-year-old daughter to a documentary premier of #standwithme – a movie about child slavery. Yes, you heard that right.

Next to the fabulous speakers and connecting with amazing soul mates in the justice world, the exhibitor hall was one of my favorite experiences at The Justice Conference.  From universities offering Masters of Arts degrees in social justice work, to authors, to activist organizations and social entrepreneurs… the hall was full of information and ways to walk out my passion for justice in a host

Book Review: The Just Church
