A Heart for the Lives of Others

It's true.  Pictures are worth a thousand words.  As we welcomed Brad Mattes to the Ambassador offices last week, he shared pictures from his recent trip to Ethiopia where he was filming for his TV program, Facing Life Head-On. The faces of those he met spoke thousands of words.

Remarkable Stories

Last week I experienced firsthand another kind of remarkable story.  Ellen, who won a much-needed Weekend to Remember® registration, shared with me her struggles of being newly married following 10 years of single parenthood.  She admitted her greatest challenge was being a wife, a ...
