Mixed Blessing: Embracing the Fullness of Your Multiethnic Identity
ECPA Top Shelf Book Cover Award
"So what are you?"
Chandra Crane knows what it's like to get that question. She has a Thai birth father, a European American mother, and an African American father who adopted her when she was five. With this mixed multiethnic and multicultural background, she has keenly felt the otherness of never quite fitting in. Where do people of mixed ethnicity belong?
Those of us with multiethnic backgrounds may have pain surrounding our mixed heritage. But we also have the privilege and potential to serve the Lord through our unique experiences. Crane explores what Scripture and history teach us about ethnicity and how we can bring all of ourselves to our sense of identity and calling.
Discover the fullness of who you are. Find out how your mixed identity can be a blessing to yourself and to the world around you.
