Hi. I’m Grace Henry, editor of To Win Some. We’re glad you’re here.

This site launched in August 2013, and since then has hosted the perspectives of many friends living their own cross-cultural God-adventures around the world. In October 2015 we launched The WinSome Podcast to extend the conversation to radio. We write from different countries, but all of us are passionate about seeing the good news of Jesus spread. Some blogs can be self-aggrandizing; we hope to honor the Reason behind our stories more than the people who tell them.

My husband and I moved with our kids to the MidEast in 2010, dreaming of planting a church in an unreached country. We moved in obedience to God, excited to share the hope of Jesus with people who might never hear it otherwise. One day when I’m in my 70s I want a big long list of stories to tell our grand-kids, where God is the hero.
