gwendolyn faith is not a crayon.

Hello, I’m Gwen.

I work in advertising. I play in the kitchen.

I’m part tweenager. (Look at my iTunes playlist.)

I’m part Grandma. (Look at my oversize cardi collection.)

I’m part Romy or Michelle. (Look at the height of my hair.)

As a Christian, I'm learning how to glorify God in the everyday. To live into the status quo, like Jesus' own Manchurian candidate, and seep grace through its cracks.

I wish my life were a musical, but other than that, I’m pretty content.

(No surprise I also like to Yelp.)

Today, in an effort to raise $100,000 to support small business owners in developing countries, Relevant Magazine will contribute the first $10 to your World Vision Micro microloan donation. Small microloans allow entrepreneurs in impoverished areas to grow their businesses; after it is paid, the loan is provided to another worthy entrepreneur within the same community, creating a cycle that can change lives. Please consider donating to an incredible cause!

I chose to support Sonia, a 20-year-old mother of two from Tetela, Mexico, who needs a loan of $550 to buy ingredients for her snack business. (Of course I contributed to someone who makes empanadas, fried bananas, gorditas, tortas and tamales!) Before you donate, you can get to know Sonia and the other entrepreneurs here.
