Highlighted Story—Living Light
Previously, we shared the story of Cathy Rude and Connie Blokkum, two midwives who collectively started a birthing center in west Houston, Texas, six years ago. This week, hear Connie share more about the privileges of being a midwife, particularly in being able to encourage women in all aspects of their lives, both medically and spiritually.
What We Do
Stories of Our City collects and shares real stories from real people from around the world in an effort to cultivate community and global understanding. We produce these stories to reveal that our everyday experiences with family, love, religion, and culture are often similar to those of others living in cities and villages across the globe. We believe that when we share and celebrate a common humanity, we can begin to erase the boundaries and labels that divide us. When we take the time to listen we recognize the “other” as the same as us, giving us the foundation for global community. We are excited to be a part of this and thank you for joining us on this journey! Click here to share your story with us!
