You shocked me last night when you asked for bus fare to march on the Capitol building to show solidarity against gun violence. Two bills are going before the Minnesota legislature on topics of “standing your ground” and “constitutional carry” today. I had no idea these bills were on your radar. You always make me turn off NPR to listen to the Black Panther soundtrack. If I’m being honest,  when I got the email from your school about their expectations… Read more

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

  Hey Hey Sistas, On today’s episode I invited Meg Tietz back to the podcast to talk about the Myers-Briggs personality test and how it relates to our shalom practices.  In chapter 14, of “Shalom Sistas” I talk about the four types of friends who helped me get through a major tragedy which had me wondering if some personality types gravitate towards specific practices of Shalom. Well, my friend Meg thinks so and so she came on the show today… Read more

I had to wait to share these with y’all because Tyson didn’t want me to share his picture until just this morning.

A new twist on our back to school benedictions. As y’all know on the first day… Read more

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

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

Lean in close, Sistas… because I’ve got a confession: I’m am 100% here for a fantastic worship set on Sunday morning. Send me to a worship conference and I’m yours for life. Sometimes I have to keep myself in check and not email the worship pastor like every week to tell him or her how amazing Sunday morning was for me. I love worship much. SO VERY MUCH! via GIPHY   It all started in a little Pentacostal in Texas… Read more
