About Me

Welcome to Barefoot with Daphne!

Those of you who know me know that I love living in and learning about other cultures.  Over the past ten years or so I’ve worked internationally with several different missions and community development organizations, and completed my graduate degree in cross-cultural studies.  It is no surprise then that I love introducing my own two little girls to the beautiful diversity of this world!

My hope is that this blog introduces you to some fun ideas for engaging your children in conversations about culture, diversity, and care for the earth.  I am an Ambassador with Barefoot Books – an independent publisher of beautiful children’s books that emphasize cross-cultural literacy – and would be happy to talk with you about book recommendations based on your kids’ ages and interests.

You can contact me here.

Thank you so much for visiting!
