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, Here are a few things you need to know about today’s episode: 1: I sit down with my friend Amena Brown today to talk about how she's seeking Shalom in herself. We also talk about taking mission trips to Africa as black girls, beauty standards, and I kissed dating goodbye. 2: We're doing our shalom step of cleaning toilets for people who annoy us... my bathrooms are SPARKLING people. 3: There's a copy of Amena's book, "How to Fix A Broken Record" up for grabs. Just find the podcast on Instagram and TAG three friends who you think would love this episode. Reminders! 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 a Patreon to help pay for an editor and make sure episodes are released once a week. The only way I can serve you here on the podcast is by delegating the editing/tech to someone else. Please consider supporting the podcast here. We need $100 more to start a contract with an editor.
