The time between the home of your youth and the home you'll make for yourself someday is a time of adventure, discovery and excitement; but also loneliness, longing and uncertainty.
From college to career to relationships, we at Boundless want to cast a vibrant vision for the single years, helping you navigate this season while preparing for the challenges and responsibilities of the one to come. That requires living intentionally with purpose by bringing your gifts, talents and Christian worldview to bear on your whole life.
We do permit comments on our blog, so feel free to respond to any of the posts that move you. If you'd rather send us a more personal e-mail, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll read every e-mail that is sent to us, but because we've got a small and overworked staff we're just not able to personally answer it all. Letters may be edited for clarity and conciseness if we reprint them on the website or blog. Please let us know if you do not wish your letter to be published.

She graduated from Trinity International University in Chicago and has lived and worked everywhere from Paraguay to Capitol Hill.
