Amazing Grace Cruz (Co-Host)
I was raised in a house with over 70 girls. I've learnt to live, love and speak for a broken generation, travel across nations, share the heart of God for children and model what God can do through the broken and the weakest. Worship has been my foundation but Justice has been my heart. I'm passionate about serving nonprofits, brands and its leader who are "transformation" centric. I've witnessed the power of stories that can transform communities, voices that can drive real change and impact that can be greater than your capacity.
