United by Spirit, guided by Love

I once half-jokingly said that if I were to run for President of the United States, one of my parents would not vote for me! My parents have two vastly different political perspectives and often vote for opposite parties in elections. Despite these differences, however, they share common values that bind them together as a team. 

As an adult, I feel especially grateful to have had a balanced upbringing through which I discovered how to listen to and learn from people whose views differ from mine. There are moments when we as a family decide to abandon the political discussion and “agree to disagree,” but it is with mutual respect and not raised voices, and sometimes even some healthy humor.
