Chris Field

Award-Winning Author and Two-Time TEDx Speaker

Chris Field is an award-winning author and two-time TEDx speaker. He is the founder of Mercy Project, an innovative nonprofit that combats child trafficking in Ghana’s fishing industry. Mercy Project has rescued, rehabilitated, and reintegrated nearly three hundred formerly enslaved children back into their families.

Chris has broken multiple Guinness world records, run dozens of marathons, and taught hundreds of business students at Texas A&M University. His previous books include Disrupting for Good and A Billion Hours of Good. He lives in College Station, Texas, with his wife, Stacey, and their four children.

While all of this sounds really important and impressive (which he understands is the point of this section), he’s also just a regular guy who loses his temper, forgets his wallet, messes up a lot, and has a whole host of shortcomings equally as unimpressive as the two paragraphs above. In other words, he’s a beggar on a journey for bread, just like everyone else in the world.

Meaning Making

Learning to Be Human Halfway Through Life

This is a book for people who have been around a while and seen a lot of life . . .

People who have conquered and also failed, scaled a few mountains, and traversed some valleys.

People who are certain about a few things and much less so about pretty much everything else. 

People who recognize that being alive is not equivalent to actually living.

Meaning Making is for those who have smiled and sobbed and loved and lost and are now eyeing the time they still have, determining how to be confident they don’t opt out of the exquisite chaos right in front of them now.

No one is broken, everyone is worthy of being known, and we’re all a collection of complex, beautiful messes. These are the fundamental truths at the heart of this authentic book. It’s about becoming fully human, a moment at a time—no matter hold old you are. 

Meaning Making is not memoir or self-help. Chris is clear that he doesn’t have all the answers (or many at all). He doesn’t offer action plans, groundbreaking advice, or a guarantee to alter your life. 

Instead, he shares the ordinary, simple moments that surprisingly become important life lessons—but only if we choose to make meaning from them. Vulnerable, heartfelt, and relatable, Meaning Making is about Chris’s commitment to embracing the second half of life—and inviting you to do the same.
