Amy Hofland was born with a cleft lip and palate. But thanks to 21 surgeries over 21 years—and parents whose love knew no bounds—Amy became an executive, prolific educator and compelling speaker. All because her parents resourced their best for Amy’s health and well-being: their faith, their compassion, and their love.
“I am the seed of that compassion— a girl facing the world with a fearless heart," Amy proclaims.

She recently led the Dallas Arts District’s signing of the International Charter for Compassion and Chairs the Dallas Arts District Board.
