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, For those of you who observe, may you have a blessed Good Friday. Here's a song that is giving me so much to consider about Jesus' death and life today: "Wounded Healer" by Audrey Assad https://youtu.be/Ejrg3zXOW-k Here are three things you need to know about today's episode. 1: Cara Meredith and I sat down to talk about “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeline L’engle. We cover everything from our reading experiences as children, what Christian themes we had hoped to see in the movie, and why positive representation matters as we’re raising bi-racial children. 2: We're praying for each other in the Shalom Sistas Hangout and Newsletter. Click the links to join and get your prayer on. 3: Cara suggests this book and it is LOVELY: Good Morning, Superman Two Important Reminders: 1: We’re going weekly now, so make sure to leave your five star reviews so people can find the podcast every week.
