Hi! I’m Rachel Pieh Jones

(say it like Pie. Or Pi.)

You can also call me Djibouti Jones. I’m the author of Pillars, Stronger than Death, Finding Home, Djiboutilicious, The Expat Cookbook, and Welcome to Djibouti. My work appears in the New York Times, Runners World, Christianity Today, Deadspin, and so many other places.

I write and speak about life at the crossroads of faith and culture. I aim to challenge people to live brave, love wild, and believe goodness while leaping outside their comfort zones.

I’m most active and would love to connect with you at my Substack, Do Good Better, where I curate challenging, provocative, deep-diving conversations about humanitarian, development, and missions work.

You can also find me at Stories from the Horn, a newsletter with links to all the important news stories in and about the Horn of Africa. Sign up here: Stories from the Horn.
