Shalom Sistas is a podcast hosted by Osheta Moore—a wifey, writer, entrepreneur, and mom who loves to talk Shalom with her favorite women, her Shalom Sistas. While Shalom is often thought of as another word for peace, it’s actually a deep and wide concept of the world as it should be— whole, flourishing, and vibrant. Being a Shalom Sista is as simple as seeing a need in the world and asking "how can I help?" Every episode, Osheta will introduce a Shalom Sista who asked that very question to share her story and give practical advice that will inspire and encourage women to be wholehearted and seek wholeness in the world right around her. We don’t’ get preachy here, but we do get personal, practical, and at times, a little playful!

Hey Sistas, Today's guest is Shelley Jones! Shelley Jones is the founder of dignify, an online boutique that sells handmade blankets that are made by women who are survivors of exploitation in Bangladesh. She is a wife, a mom, and a creative who is using what she has to work out shalom in her business, in the way she shops, and in the [online] world. Today we talk about: How she kinda tumbled into founding a fair trade company How she loves to connect the stories of the women who shop Dignify to the women who make the blankets How she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Father Greg Boyle from Homeboy Industries How she uses what she has in her hands right now to be a peacemaker.
