Shalom Book Club

    Once a month on the podcast I chat with my friend, Cara Meredith about books through the lens of Shalom.  This is partly to solve a very real problem we both have, we love reading, we love talking about books in community, and we’re always game to try out new authors, but we simply can’t work in a book club in our very buys schedules this season. This is why we’re hosting a monthly book club on the… Read more

The Art of Manliness     “The more I get to know Jesus, the more trouble he seems to get me into.” ― Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical Peacemaking is hard.  Living wholeheartedly when you’re feeling broken by the your circumstances or current events takes courage.  Loving kiddos with bad attitudes and the co-worker who reminds you of… Read more

Oh I Wanna Dance With Somebody And Other Peacemaking Maxims

Sistas! It’s been over two weeks since my first book, “Shalom Sistas: Living Wholeheartedly in a Brokenhearted World” released. I’ve been all over the place talking about the book, from podcasts to radio interviews and with a group of amazing Dangerous Women. It received a Red Star Review on Publisher’s Weekly which had me happy dancing all over my house, not just because someone who actually get paid to read books thinks “Shalom Sistas” is a good book, but because… Read more

Five Bible Studies To Help Me Grow As A Shalom Sista

Wednesday is my birthday and I always buy myself a new Bible study. So today I’m sharing the ones that made my short list. I chose them because they all speak to the Shalom Sista Manifesto points I’m currently working on. I’ve also broke then down by four categories or the four directions we seek shalom: between us and God, ourselves, each other, and systems in the world.  Because I’m all about that unity, I’ve chosen studies from authors with… Read more

There Are No White Hats Here: Monday’s Manifesto

Yesterday, TC and I had an argument. It’s one we have at least three times a year. Right before the kids go back to school when I’m feeling all eager and over-confident that with the kids back in class I can do ALL THE THINGS. Or right after the New Year when shame and #goaldigging traps me into thinking I’m not doing enough to be my best self… live my best life… all that jazz. And the doozy that brings… Read more
