Six Tips for Hosting a Vegan at Thanksgiving

By Sarah Withrow King

What Love Requires

By Sharon Delgado
When my granddaughter Nikayla was ten years old, climate change became real to her. She learned that glaciers and ice sheets are melting, endangering the habitats of Polar bears and Emperor penguins. She loves animals, as most children do, so she created a poster with pictures of hearts, the earth, and animals.

By Sarah Withrow King
