If I could summarize the Poynter Institute “Truth & Trust in the 21st Century: Journalism’s role in telling the story of violence in Chicago” panel discussion / talkback Thursday night in a phrase, I would say I learned that “Optimism & Positivity are Journalism’s Future & Democracy’s Hope.” The night opened on this note with...

Wheaton College's Journalism Certificate Program: #kindofabigdeal
This is a spontaneous blog post to brag shamelessly about how amazing Wheaton College’s journalism certificate program students are. Professor Tim Morgan and I just wrapped up another round of end-of-semester conferences with our students, and I’m so happy I could cry. Over the past 15 months, not only have our journalism students written hundreds... Read more »

Derek Rabelo’s father prayed that his son would be a professional surfer. But Derek was born blind in 1992, and his father’s dream seemed impossible. Seventeen years later, however, Derek decided that not only did he want to surf — he wanted to surf the legendary waves on the North Shore of Oahu. Derek’s courage... Read more »

I Am Today's Christian Woman: Let's Talk About Sex
In August 2012, I accepted a full-time job as Today’s Christian Woman’s online editor. It’s been just over a year since that fateful day, and ever since, I’ve been intentional about learning exactly what it means to live life as a Christian woman.

“All journalists are insecure overachievers-learn how to make mistakes and own them. Your mistakes don’t define you.” This was one of many memorable phrases shared by TIME Magazine reporter Elizabeth Dias at Wheaton College’s Homecoming weekend 2013. The weekend marked her fifth year college reunion, and she came to campus as a guest of the... Read more »

Help End Sex Trafficking in Chicago: Run the TraffickFree 5K

Help End Sex Trafficking in Chicago: Run the TraffickFree 5K
As a journalist, I come across controversial topics on a regular basis–but none have captivated me like human trafficking has. I’m passionate about raising awareness about the criminal activity that claims an estimated 300,000 minors each year within the United States (and countless more in countries around the world, including Honduras). As much as I... Read more »

Christine Caine: 'Impossible is Where God Starts'
“Starting when I was only three, I was sexually abused by four men in my life for twelve years. Now I’m almost 47. I was abused for 12 years, but I’ve not been abused for 35.

It’s June–that means marathon and 5K season is upon us. Unfortunately for me, I had my big toenail removed last week, so I won’t be participating in much of anything active over the next several weeks, but I’m able to be an avid spectator and supporter, and was able to witness two friends finish the...

The Four-mula For a Successful Life: JUST DO IT

The Four-mula For a Successful Life: JUST DO IT
I’m a 24-year-old Christian Millennial. More than 40 percent of my peers are underemployed, living at home with their parents, or “working” unpaid internships until they “make it.” The statistics are depressing, but the reality is, I think many of us are underestimating our abilities. Like Jesus said, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes... Read more »
