My name is Anita Goldswain, and I am a South African farm girl and journalist who’s living in Berlin, Germany… and doing my best to keep up with city life! I am married to Chris, also a South African, and although we don’t have kids or pets (yet), I am very lucky to have some amazing ‘sisters’ in Berlin and all over the world who make me laugh and keep me sane on rainy days.
I am very passionate about the often under-utilized potential inside women – their capacity to relate and have compassion, to build sustainable communities, and for courage. Many of my often unsung heroes are women full of love, self-sacrifice and mother-bear fierceness – from my own mother, sister and girlfriends, to women like Christine Caine and Lisa Bevere who work to end human trafficking. I believe that many of the world’s problems can be reduced if we include more women’s voices in all sectors of society, and learn to appreciate the feminine more.
Chris and I are both very involved at a church in Berlin called Every Nation Berlin – in fact he’s a pastor and blogger – and we love talking to young people about their dreams, and how God has awesome plans for their lives. So if you’re in our city, drop us a line! We’d love to meet you.
