A great conversation begins with one tiny gesture; a smile.  A warm embrace begins with one small gesture; eye contact.  A business partnership will initiate with one grand gesture; a firm handshake.  A personal relationship will flourish into a long-term friendship with one patient and committed act; unconditional love and open communication-no matter the seasons of life.  

The simple “acts of loving out loud” begins with a radiant smile, an open heart, and arms ready to lend helping hands.

As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
