Have you ever wondered how families find out their child has been sponsored? Here's a blog post from Compassion International's field communications specialist for Compassion Ghana, Vera Mensah-Bediako.

What a Hug Means

There are no words to describe or to say thank you for the sacrifice soldiers and their families make.  This Remembrance Day take a moment to remember what has been given for our freedom in Canada and for all we have in our lives. Thanks to Lynn Fraser for sharing this video with me.  Make sure you grab the box of tissues before you hit play.

Expectation vs Reality After a Not-So-Good Weekend

On Saturday I was in Montreal with a group of friends at La Ronde Amusement Park. It was a great day! We grabbed Starbucks on the way out of Ottawa, chatted about what was happening in our lives on the way down, found the park with no problem with the help of "Holly" our GPS, parked the car and headed into the park for a day of screaming and laughter.
