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!

Shalom Sistas

Published on 07/08/2018

My guest for Shalom Sistas #60 is Marla Taviano. Marla Taviano is the author of From Blushing Bride to Wedded Wife (2006), Is That All He Thinks About? (2007), Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time (2008), Expecting (2009), The Husband’s Guide to Getting Lucky (2011), Once Upon the Internet (2012), The Wife Life(2013), We Dream of Cambodia (2014), An Unschooling Manifesto (2014), The Storm (2015), and Shipwrecked (2017). Her biggest passions are loving the poor, seeking justice, and building libraries. Which we talk about on the show today. Marla and I dive right in and start talking about her family’s decision to move Cambodia, how she’s trying to be intentional in not calling herself a “missionary”, but a “neighbor”, why she started an Instagram account called, “White Girl Learning” , where we shares the books she’s reading written by authors of color. In the second half of the show Marla flips the tables and asks me some of her burning questions like my decision to start using the female pronoun for God (I talk about the theology of it with my friends Tim and Mariann Reardon in episode 59 of the podcast.) It was such a lovely conversation and I wish I could have talked to Marla for another hour. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. For links in today's episode, click here
