HOPE International

Prioritizing Family | Laurel + Peter Greer


On Episode 39, we meet Peter and Laurel Greer. Peter is the CEO and President of HOPE International, which invests in the dreams of families in the world's underserved communities as they proclaim and live the Gospel.

Peter and Laurel have four kids, biological, adopted and fostered. We hear briefly about adoption, and we hear about the beautiful and hard work of fostering as a family.

The Greers share how their family truly found their priorities. Peter drafted a resignation letter, and Laurel is in charge of it. This episode also hits on the importance of sex in marriage, but not without an emotional connection.

Welcome to the Love or Work Podcast, hosted by Andre Shinabarger (Physician Assistant, Grady Hospital) and Jeff Shinabarger (Social Entrepreneur and Founder of Plywood People). They are asking the question: Is it possible to change the world, stay in love and raise a healthy family? 100 interviews where Jeff and Andre learn from other working families in the journey of marriage, purpose and parenting.
