A Family Year Abroad: How to Live outside the Border  
A Family Year Abroad: How to Live outside the Border
Chris Westphal

Price:  $16.95

A Family Opportunity for Global Understanding

We live in a continually changing global society where it is essential to become educated about life outside our own borders. Recent attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon sharply remind us of the importance of building strong relationships with people in other countries and educating ourselves about different cultures.

Instead of a vacation, he and his wife, Stephanie, packed up and moved with their two bright, school-aged children to Prague, Czech Republic, for an entire year!

The effect on the familiy was profound. Both children later went on exchange programs to France and have a new appreciation for the world and their place in it.

Funny, insightful, and inspiring, this book is for anyone wanting to lean from others' life experiences abroad or wanting to make a life change.
