The mission of Homegrown Journal is to cheer on each of us to lead lives worthy of our calling. You are invited to come alongside as we aspire towards bravery, empathy, creativity. We hope Homegrown Journal will challenge and encourage you as we share stories of what we have learned about hope, courage, dreams, purpose.

As you read, consider telling us how a writer has inspired you to be brave or helped you overcome an obstacle. Ask us questions about our experiences. Tell us about someone in your life who has a story to be told.
