  • Non-Fiction
  • Bryan, Shelene

    Alive author Shelene Bryan began to question whether the $50 monthly donations she had been making were going to real children in need, or if it was all a scam. Determined to find out the truth, Bryan hopped on a plane to the African village where her sponsored children lived. Struck by the debilitating poverty there—and just how easily her American money could help ease it—Bryan knew one trip to Uganda was not enough. Since 2003 she has made several return trips and founded the organization Skip1 which, rather than asking for large donations, utilizes the small donations people can make by skipping just one luxury, from a pack of gum to dining out.

    In Love, Skip, Jump, Bryan describes the joy God has given her by letting Him lead her out of her comfort zone. She also points to Biblical characters who trusted God’s mysterious and often dangerous plans and wound up changing their worlds. Her story encourages readers to forgo their complacency and chase after God with childlike faith.
