Great Words and Fried Worms

By November 12, 2011 General 4 Comments

I think any good post should start off with a video of my friend Keely eating fried worms.

Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.

Keely is the (ah-mazing!) photographer for all the Compassion Blogger trips and this past week, Compassion took an incredible team of bloggers to Ecuador. You can read all the posts, see the pictures and watch the videos here.

This Week’s Must Read Posts

This post from Ann Voskamp, this one from Melanie and this one from Shaun Groves really inspired and challenged me. I dare you to read them and tell me they didn’t change you.

Watch With Your Kids

My kids enjoyed watching these two videos. They spurred great conversation about wealth, poverty and how we can impact the Compassion kids we sponsor.

Other Great Reads

Here are a couple other posts that I’ve been meaning to share with you:
