Hungry for Wholeness
Giji Mischel Dennard
Giji Mischel Dennard, a native Floridian, is a graduate of Howard University (B.A., Print Journalism) and Stanford Law School (J.D.). She has been an avid reader, with a preference for non-fiction, since grade school. Hungry for Wholeness is her second publication. Giji has been a lay leader in college campus ministry for over 30 years. She recently launched well FED, through which she provides resources and services to help a broad spectrum of clients BE well, LOVE well, WORK well, LIVE well, and EAT well.
By giving voice to the history the author shares with her own father, as well as the stories of six others, Hungry for Wholeness validates fathers and children’s mutual craving for love and trust, affirms the father’s crucial role in a child’s development, and documents the grace for healing and reconciliation flowing from the hand of our heavenly Father.
18-80 year-old men and women who have experienced absence or estrangement with their fathers AND/OR fathers who have been absent or estranged from their children for a significant amount of time

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
GijiMD collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
The winning design exceeded my expectations!! The amount of designs submitted was amazing and the ability to go back and forth and communicate with each designer and give feed back was also incredible. The only downside to this entire process (and it was overall amazing) was I think designers could see each others work and some were clearly "copying" each others work. Others only offered one design and just variants of that same theme over and over. But others were amazing and would come up with completely different ideas and kept working really hard to get my attention and be a finalist. I would use this service or recommend 99d again! Aaniyah as a designer was simply amazing. Her work was incredibly forward thinking, she offered many different ideas, was quick to reply to questions or comments. She really understood what I wanted and took the vision in a direction really no one else did.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
