Daughter of Ravi Zacharias, internationally known apologist, speaker, and author, NZ has established herself not only as founder and director of Wellspring International, an initiative devoted to providing financial grants to international efforts working with at-risk women and children, but also as a writer and speaker. As a result, NZ has traveled internationally and visited with women in the red-light district of The Netherlands, India, and Thailand; foster homes for children affected by HIV/AIDS throughout Asia; victims of violence in the Congo; women’s prisons in South Africa; refugee camps in Indonesia, Uganda and Pakistan; tsunami destroyed areas of Indonesia; etc. In sharing those experiences of encountering pain and suffering of other women, NZ also faces the emotional pain of her own life—including an eating disorder, issues related to body image, hunger for relationship, and divorce. She grows as she encounters grace “for every kind of broken” in her own life and the lives of those whom she serves. Beautifully and sensitively written.
