We recently spent two days climbing the third highest mountain in Central Java, Mount Lawu. It was an incredible experience on many levels. The journey took us 11 kilometers up the mountain and despite the pouring rain as we hiked up, we were given the beautiful and wonderful gift of a perfect sunset and then a perfect sunrise. Here are a few of the pictures from this experience. Expect to hear more about it in the days to come.

"It was a honor to have Jody Temple White speak to our organization. Jody is an articulate and engaging speaker who connected with our members on a personal level. Her passion for sharing her family's story and how their lessons in courage can be applied by anyone was inspirational to all. Additionally, Jody was professional and easy to work with when scheduling and planning our event. I highly recommend her as a speaker for your event."
"Throughout Jody’s presentation, not only did I find myself saying, My family could do that, but it spurred me on in the challenges in my business that need an extra dose of courage. Jody is a warm, engaging and approachable speaker - definitely one of our bright leadership stars!!"

"John and Jody White and their family make a very interesting, and inspiring, presentation. It is their story about how they took a nine month break from the daily grind to travel the world doing volunteer work. They traveled as a family with an open mind about how they could find ways to do good works in the countries they visited. The inspiring part is about how they met so many wonderful people, enriched their lives, and gave so much to the places they visited. Their story is entertaining, amusing, at times heart wrenching, and highly unusual. It is well delivered and comes from their own experience. The context of their story is to have the courage to take a leap into unknown and uncharted territory. Highly recommended."
John Amond, East Portland Rotary
