Hello Houston - and PBS watchers everywhere.

One of our favorite people, teachers and collaborators - Barbara Elliott - is being featured on Houston's locally produced PBS show "LIving Smart". Barbara is a renaissance woman - Author, international journalist, speaker, social entrepreneur, philanthropic adviser, former White House staff - she's done it all with elegance and style.

I never cease to marvel that she travels around the world for our obscure little outfit. Convert from evangelicalism and passionate Catholic, Barbara is one of our anchor teachers - both for the Called & Gifted workshop and Making Disciples.

Her appearance on LIving Smart will let you see another side of her: mentor of children at risk and social entrepreneur. Living Smart will be broadcast Thursday at 1pm on Houston's PBS station but will also be made available on dozens of other PBS stations.

This weekend, April 18/9 you can catch also Barbara in action in Seattle - where she will be helping teach a Called & Gifted workshop at Blessed Sacrament.

Meanwhile, I will have the fun of speaking at the Road Home Forum on Sunday, April 20 - with some other local converts including the creator of the famous Adventures in Odyssey children's radio program sponsored by Focus on the Family. News about that has been making its way around the blogosphere so if you are in the Colorado Springs area this weekend, check it out.
