Florida native Jason Sowell has worked in the nonprofit sector for more than 10 years and is a public speaker, published writer, nonprofit entrepreneur, missionary and wedding officiant. After participating in several overseas mission trips, Jason decided to focus his efforts on local U.S. cities by bringing hope to neighborhoods through tangible projects. In 2008, Jason founded Current Initiatives, a Tampa-based nonprofit organization with the mission of educating young adults on social initiatives while mobilizing them to bring about change. Current’s most prevalent program, the Laundry Project, assists lower-income individuals and families by taking over a laundromat for a day and covering all expenses associated with and providing the necessary items required to wash and dry clothes and linens. Another Current program is Affordable Christmas, which is a seasonal initiative giving needy families and parents the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for their children for no more than $10 an item. Studies show that purchasing gifts, rather than receiving them for free, gives empowerment and dignity to these working parents who simply need a hand up. Current’s third project, Hopes for Homes, provides complimentary remodeling and improvement work on homes owned by working class families facing financial challenges with home repairs and maintenance. Volunteers work to repair damaged roofs and porches, remodel kids’ rooms and bathrooms, update energy inefficient kitchens and more.

As a Middle School teacher in 2009, Megan adored her students, but was also alarmed by how much the sexualized culture was influencing them. At a parenting program hosted by the school, she first heard Mary Flo speak. She realized the powerful insights of Mary Flo's strategies and recognized what a difference it could have made for her students if their parents had had conversations with them in their earlier years. For her, this exposure to Mary Flo's approach was a game changer as to the importance, timing and content of conversations about sex between parent and child. Several years later, after becoming a parent herself, her convictions about this approach deepened, ultimately leading her to train under Mary Flo. In 2015 Megan began presenting the program to a new generation of parents. Megan was born in Dallas and received her degree in Communications from Baylor University. She has been married to her husband Blake for seven years and they have two young children. Everyone is nervous and has questions of how do I have this TALK with my children?
