Taste and See

Have you ever experienced something that you can’t explain?  One of those things that “you just had to be there” to understand?  I have. Often people will ask me the question, “So what is a normal day at Urban Life like?”  This question always makes me laugh because ten months

2xSalt: A Year in Review

The last week of the year, I commissioned my kids to make a tour video of 2xSalt, and talk about what the Planetshakers (our mentoring program) meant to them.  I filmed the tour, and edited it, but it was completely scripted by my kids.  We would love for you to

The Grand Adventure

Life is a grand adventure. I want them to know that. I tell kids that they can be anything that they want to be. I try to inspire them to dream big. I give them options. I show them colleges and tell them they can be doctors and lawyers. I
