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!

Hey Sistas, Join Cara Meredith and I as we discuss "The Sun is Also a Star" by Nicola Yoon. With our theme of Hopeful Resistance in mind, we talk through some of the tough issues (young love, college admission, and deportation) that Daniel and Natasha face. From Amazon: Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story. Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us. The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true? In this episode Cara and I invite you to a fun night out,ask ourselves how we can tell better stories, have a brief debate on the correct pronunciation of Nicola's name (spoiler alert...we both think we're right)! Speaking of spoilers, this episode is full of spoilers so listen accordingly, Sistas! Also, we read an excerpt from the show, so there's one cussword, so heads up! Want more Shalom in your life?
