Resources for your journey


Over the years, these have been some of the most influential books. They spoke truth, challenged my ideas, and shaped the way I see this big and beautiful world.

Some of my favorites that speak to global issues are:

The Locust Effect by Gary Haugen
Nowhere to be Home
Left to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza

For your everyday reads on race, justice, life, women in the Church, and beautifully told fictional stories, I’d start with:


Our world is full of organizations doing amazing work across the world. Here are just a few that are particularly meaningful to me.

An organization focused on investing in the dreams of families through micro finance and discipleship

Braverly Logo

A coffee shop and sewing center training center on the border of Thailand Burma that trains, empowers, and disciples women from oppressed people groups

Act for the Nations Logo

Provides “spiritual and material support where it is most needed by partnering with veteran frontline servants.” They actively partner with and encourage local missionaries and those they work with in the ministry they’re already doing!
