About Us

Welcome to my new podcast, My (extraordinary) Family. For each edition I will be talking with someone I've come to know in my travels about their faith, their work and their story. I'll will be asking what it means to them to become more Christ-like: contemplative, compassionate and courageous for the sake of God’s world.
