October 14, 2020

Cassie Yoshikawa started a travel blog when she realized that there weren't many resources out there for Christian travelers who want to admire the Creator and not just the creation. That blog has been an inspiration for many of my faith + travel discussions and I am so excited to have her join us this week on the podcast as she shares a new perspective on tourists. She challenges us to admire the tourists as they admire God's handiwork and as they remind us of the awe and wonder in our own backyards!
