“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Raised in the good old down-to earth, family-friendly Midwest, Megan grew up somewhat sheltered from most of the world’s harsher realities. Always driven to fight against injustice and speak up for the truth, her early years found her standing up to bullies on the bus and defending the rights of friends and family members. Her world was slowly but surely blown open by encountering stories of persecution in Sudan, studying other cultures at Northwestern College (St. Paul, MN), being confronted with the racial divide in America, and walking the roads of poverty in South and Central America, Africa, Europe and Asia. Her journey towards living practically and radically for God has been shaped through time spent with L’Abri Fellowship (2008), a Torchbearer’s Bible School (2009) and Youth With a Mission (2010). She believes strongly that as lovers and followers of God, Christians should be the foremost demographic defending the oppressed and working for the good of the poor. Her hope in writing this blog is both to seek out, process and apply information about living ethically for herself and also to offer those discoveries and practical suggestions to friends, family, and anyone else on a similar journey.
