“Heidi Sand-Hart’s “Home Keeps Moving” authenticates the TCK experience. Her personal stories demonstrate the tangible reality of the TCK theories we have been reading and hearing about for years.” – Tina L Quick, author of The Global Nomad's Guide to University Transition


Home Keeps Moving follows Heidi and her missionary family on their many moves through the eyes of a Third Culture Kid* (TCK) and the unique phenomena of having four very different home countries to relate to. 

It tells the true story of being catapulted from continent to continent constantly: leaving friends and starting all over again, her unquenchable search for a home and sense of belonging in this world, her desire for a life-partner with the odds all but against her due to constantly relocating (even into adulthood). 

You will laugh and cry along with Heidi as she recounts hilarious and heart-breaking tales from her childhood as West blends with East. That is the true beauty of Heidi's upbringing, it crossed borders and defied logic but she lacked for nothing. 

The story unravels the many challenges faced by global citizens and focuses on the strengths that such a varied upbringing has and the pressures that come with it. 

This book gives you a rare glimpse into the world of a Third Culture Kid and brings insight, validation and clarity to fellow TCKs. Home Keeps Moving tackles subjects such as: Confused Loyalties · Swimming in Two cultural oceans · Home · Grief · Education · Social Pressures · Religion · Expectation · Re-Entry · Delayed Adolescent Rebellion · Relationships

*What is a Third Culture Kid?
“A third culture kid is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside their parents’ culture. The third culture kid builds relationships to all the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. Although elements from each culture are assimilated into the third culture kid’s life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of the same background, other TCKs.” - Van Reken/Pollock.
