Michelle Brock was born in Kenya, and raised in Finland and Ethiopia. As a third culture kid whose parents did a lot of travel, she often struggled with the idea of national identity and still considers the airport her home. This upbringing greatly influenced her decision to study international development and political science in university.
In addition to writing at hopeforthesold.com, Michelle has written for Huffington Post and Relevant Magazine, and has spoken about social justice at conferences, universities & churches in North America.
Jared Brock is the author of A Year of Living Prayerfully, and the happy husband of Michelle. Together they’ve travelled, worked, and volunteered in over 40 countries in the last 7 years of marriage.
Jared has appeared on 100 Huntley Street and The 700 Club, and his writing has been published in Esquire, Huffington Post, Thought Catalog, Relevant Magazine, Catalyst, and Writer’s Digest.
