Bringing the Outside World Home - An Interview with Jeremy Myers
Show Notes

I am a part of several physician financial groups online.  It is not uncommon to hear other doctors talk about how they want more financial freedom so they can take their kids around the world and expose them to other people and cultures.

What if that isn't an option for you?  How do you still give your kids that experience without having to rack up all those airline miles?

Today's interview is with father Jeremy Myers.  He is a campus staff pastor at West Virginia University.  Part of his job is to help international students get accustomed with the American lifestyle.  This includes basic things like hygiene items from local stores, getting groceries, working on English, and better understanding the subtle nuances of our way of life. 

One of the GREAT things about this is that these students also get to share THEIR life customs, experiences, and rituals with not only Jeremy but his wife and kids.  How many of your children get to learn the are of Chinese dumpling making, Middle Eastern cuisine styles, board games from across the world, and other scenarios in the span of a month?  Probably not many.  However, Jeremy's kids get to do this and more. 

Listen in as we discuss how he feels this has improve not only the lives of the international students but also his kids'. 

We also touch on the topic of autism, as one of his children has been diagnosed with this.  This can be a sensitive topic for some, and I appreciate his willingness to discuss it with me.
