OFFICIAL ># MUSIC VIDEO
In 2013 I got to travel to Kenya with our friends at Compassion International and shoot a music video for a song I wrote on the theme of More Than a Number. There are a lot of “numbers” we rely on to measure our value – our ‘enoughness’. What I wanted to capture in this particular video was the dichotomy of a young woman whose life is ruled by a specific type of number – her weight – and a young girl who longs to know she’s more than a statistic about poverty and slavery. I love performing this live at speaking dates when possible, whether with or without the video playing behind me.
># TOUR IS BOOKING NOW FOR 2017
We are currently laying groundwork for ># events to launch in 2017. This half-day event offers awesome speakers and artists on themes of value, identity and purpose. A special “Greater Than a Princess” art workshop for girls 4-10 years old will happen at the same time in a separate room, making this the perfect “girls day out” for moms and daughters. If you are interested in hosting or attending a ># event, please visit www.morethananumber.net or shoot me a note via my contact form.
># CAMPAIGN WITH COMPASSION INT’L
Watch the video. Join the movement… I have partnered with Compassion International to launch a campaign on the “More Than a Number” theme. The scary truth is that while we’re spending $62 billion/yr. on diets in this country, 6 million children are dying of starvation. Diets don’t work. Feeding kids does. Would you consider joining me in “shifting” dollars to help end world hunger?

“MORE THAN A NUMBER” (>#) BOOK UPDATE
As you may have read on my Facebook page, in early June I received word that the publisher was cancelling my book. This news has been hard to take, but also empowering in a way, as I’ve documented in this blog post. The latest is that I am in talks with a few different publishers now and just taking one step at a time to see how God will lead this project to see the light of day. I believe the approach he led me to take in the writing of it is new and fresh and important, and I can’t wait to share some of it with you soon.
