Special Guest

Ann Voskamp

Author, wife, mother, FH Advocate

Describing herself as "mamma to seven, wife of one fine farmer, [with] eyes set on living for an audience of One," Ann is a powerful advocate for finding beauty in the midst of mess. She has authored four New York Times bestselling books around this theme, including the acclaimed One Thousand Gifts: A dare to live fully right where you are. Several years ago, God led Ann to a relationship with Food for the Hungry where she has brought her advocacy to bear on behalf of the families we work with. She has visited partner communities, walked with families and listened to their stories, and seen their potential to flourish.

What is poverty? Explore a fresh perspective at Flourishing.

How we define the problem determines what the solutions will be. Consider all the facets of your life; we bet you can categorize them within four essential relationships—a relationship to God, self, others, or creation. Poverty emerges where any of these are broken.

Ending poverty is about reconciling broken relationships. Let’s work together to understand poverty and how we can make lasting changes in communities worldwide and in our own backyards. Together we can flourish.
