  1. Bronwyn – This is AMAZING. I absolutely love the way you’ve laid out this series and it flows like a wonderful table of contents to an ebook. Has that been your intention? Just love it.

    • Thanks, Adriel. That means a lot. I have toyed with the idea of turning it into an e-book, but to be honest, wouldn’t really know where to start. Thanks for stopping by … I hope what you have read has been a blessing and an encouragement to you. (P.S. My friend Bronwyn did a guest post for me on Day 17.) 😉

  2. Kate, those are amazing prompt words! When I first heard of the challenge I thought no way, I am in the middle of state board examinations. But then I read your words and they fit so perfectly to the life of Third Culture Kids (TCKs)! Well, now I am here, bravely attempting to write 31 little challenges and joys of this lifestyle and already got some guest bloggers along the way. South Africa will be heavily featured, yeah! So glad to connect!
