Each chapter provides reflection questions to transfer the missional concepts into action.

Henriett hs shown us easy ways to reach out to one's community and by example teach people to love one's neighbors as themselves. With the world in conflict, the need to teach how to care for each other is of utmost importance. It is the answer to the violence that is growing in the world. Her book will help one find creative ways to get involved in community. Raymond Vath, MD

Henriet's book encapsulates "the story behind the story" that each person's life offers. There is so much that we as individuals can do to plant seeds and change lives, one story at a time. Thank you, Henriet, for memorializing what it means to be missional, and to emulate living a life that will make a lasting difference for decades to come.
