About Shalom Sistas

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!

Episode 20 With Melanie Dale

Shalom Sistas

Published on 08/22/2016

On the show today I talking to one of my favorite women, Melanie Dale. Melanie runs the website, Unexpected where she writes about motherhood, friendships, infertility, adoption, orphan care, and so much more. What I love about her site is it feels like one big hug and then a completely satisfying belly laugh. Melanie is also the author of two books: Women Are Scary: The Totally Awkward Adventure of Finding Mom Friends and It's Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn't Choose. We talk about that "It's Not Fair" on the episode since it just released LAST WEEK! Whoo-hoo! Go, Mel! In fact, I loved this book so much I have an extra copy to give away; directions are in the podcast episode. On the podcast we talk about the Shalom Sista Manifesto point, "We Will Choose Subversive Joy". She gives is the best advice on motherhood and laughter, she's gives us permission to own our feelings, and she her end of the show quote is spot on! It was a really great conversation and I hope you'll take a listen. Practicing the Shalom of Laughter, Osheta
