About the author:
Beth Lindsay Templeton, Founder and CEO of Our Eyes Were Opened, Inc., is a public speaker, Presbyterian minister, retreat leader, and writer. For many years, she worked at United Ministries, a non-profit in Greenville, South Carolina, where she worked with both "the have-nots" and "the haves." Since 2007, she has focused on a ministry with "the haves" so they can enlarge their thinking about people who live in poverty in order to reduce judgment and increase compassion.
Beth works with congregations, schools, universities, medical facilities, women's groups, civic groups, and businesses in Greenville and around the country. She is the author of eight books: Loving Our Neighbor; Understanding Povery in the Classroom; Conversations on the Porch; A Coat Named Mr. Spot; More Conversations on the Porch; Angelika's Journal; Refrigerator Prayers for Ordinary People; and Uncharted Journey: Getting Older and Other Life Transitions.
Beth is a graduate of Presbyterian College and Erskine Theological Seminary. She and her husband have three married sons and five grandchildren.
