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 52: Creating Life-giving Rhythms Not Stress-Inducing Routines
Published on 04/06/2018
Hey Sistas, Here are three things you need to know about today's episode. 1: Jerusalem Greer and I have a much needed conversation on the difference between routines to get stuff done and rhythms that give us life. We used Matthew 11:28-30 The Message (MSG) as our guide: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” 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: We have five questions we consider to create shalom in our schedules: Is this a stress-inducing routine or a life-giving rhythm? What will bring me into a resting heartbeat? What will bring wholeness? Does this rhythm reflect who God made me to be or who I think I should be? If someone tries to challenge the decisions I make to support my rhythm, can I advocate for it If someone tries to challenge the decisions I make to support my rhythm, can I advocate for it 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.
