Facebook Live with Jonathan & Elizabeth Trotter

Hey there!

Elizabeth and I “went live” yesterday on the A Life Overseas Facebook page, and it was so great to connect with so many of you! We wanted to share the video with you here, along with some topical time-markers so you don’t have to listen to the whole thing…  : )

  • For the first couple of minutes, we discussed what A Live Overseas is. And what it isn’t.

  • Around the 4 minute mark, we answered the question, “How do you decide what to write?”

  • Around the 10 minute mark, we discussed how we got started writing.

  • Around 19 minutes, we tried to answer the questions, “Do you have a favorite piece of writing?” and “Have you ever been surprised by an article’s popularity?”

  • About 48 minutes in, the conversation shifted to ideas for staying spiritually filled up, as well as how to approach “family worship” and devotionals with small kids (around 55 minutes).

  • We wrapped up around the 1:05 mark with a discussion about our hope and vision for A Life Overseas.


Thanks for joining us and thanks for being a part of this community!


all for ONE,

Jonathan T.
