ABOUT THE BOOK
Homeless. No other word better describes our modern-day suffering. It reveals one of our deepest and most painful conditions—not having a sense of belonging. However, Alan Graham, founder of Mobile Loaves & Fishes and Community First! Village, is improving the quality of life for a vast number of people by sharing his personal story of becoming more human through humanizing others. In Welcome Homeless, Graham delves deep into what it means to be connected to God, the earth, and each other. In doing so, he shows us the home we’ve all longed for but never had.
Graham wants to engrain the human story in you so deeply that you start being who you were made to be—that you start being like the image from which you were made. In Welcome Homeless, Graham also shares the stories of the homeless, and the stories of those whose worldviews have been shifted by the homeless in a raw, humorous, and honest voice. Home is fundamentally a place of connection and of relationships that are life-giving and foundational, and Graham invites you to make everyone feel truly at home by finally inviting those living on the fringes of society into your heart.

I’m excited for you to listen to the latest podcast. I had the best time meeting Avery Harris! She went on a mission trip and her heart broke for the victims of slavery. She decided to do something about it so she opened a food truck in Austin, Texas and called it SAvery Grilled Cheese. (Tune in to the podcast and find out why the SA is capitalized.) She gives 10% of the profits to organizations that are fighting to end slavery and human trafficking.
Find out where the truck is each day on their website www.saverygrilledcheese.com. The food is delicious!
Here are some pictures from our time together. It was my first “live” interview. We had so much fun! The audio is kind of wacky being “live” and all. 🙂 We were outside. The food truck was parked in front of an office building and the people that work there were lining up to buy lunch at the truck. So cool! The truck travels to different spots and events so if you want to book it- check on the website for contact information. Enjoy the podcast!
