Introducing our newest member!

All of us here at The Rising are so excited to announce that we have added a new member to our growing team!

Becca Nelson is a teacher who has discovered writing as a cheaper form of therapy.  Originally from Chicago, she is currently living and working in the town of Xela, Guatemala, where her hobbies include squeezing onto tiny, overcrowded busses, reading in the park, and smiling and nodding when people speak Spanish much too quickly. She blogs at For Want of Wonder, and is passionately spreading the word that it’s okay to fail.  You can also follow her on twitter @beccaliz.

You'll be seeing blog posts from Becca every month and we know her words are going to encourage, challenge, and touch you. We are so blessed to have her on our team.

Welcome to The Rising, Becca!
