Responding in Love to Charlottesville – What Does Love Look Like?

LOVE. What is love? Today I have seen a lot of people saying to "choose love, not hate" following the white supremacy event in Charlottesville.

Perhaps, love looks like a lot of different… Continue reading Responding in Love to Charlottesville – What Does Love Look Like?

Jealousy is Not Romantic – by Charlie Grantham

Often in our society, male partner jealousy is romanticized. When men are aggressive, controlling, and jealous, it is seen as just another way to express their "love" for their partner. This is often portrayed in popular movies, books, and television shows as an attractive quality in men. I have heard women with controlling and jealous… Continue reading Jealousy is Not Romantic – by Charlie Grantham

The Lonely Journey: My Search to Find Women of Color in the Bible

The Bible is the mirror image we are to look in daily to be reminded who we are and whose we are. It is crucial that our leaders look into this mirror and tell us ALL of what they see.

I desire the greater church to find their inheritance and identity in Christ more than I was ever given opportunity, as a young woman of color, throughout my biblical pursuit and training. In order to do that, I believe church leaders will need to see themselves as the appointed Storytellers they are. Telling the full story of Jesus that includes women who bore many colors.
