HerStory: Meet Natasha

Author, Natasha Sistrunk Robinson Meet my friend and fellow Redbud Writers Guild member, Natasha. This woman is a force, in the absolute best way. Within moments of meeting, I was drawn to her infectious passion, joy, and spirit.

A Theological Coming Out

A few weeks ago I co-taught the Bible lessons for a Vacation Bible School program at the Presbyterian church next door. I loved it. I really enjoyed making the stories come alive and thought nothing of the fact that the leaders shepherding the kids through our station were also listening. Along with my co-lead, I […]

HerStory: Jenn

Jenn was one of the first women I connected with after moving to Hoboken, NJ. She was immediately welcoming and invited us to her family’s BBQ one of the first weekends we tried a new church (where we ended up staying). In our two years together there, Jenn became a close friend. We were in […]

One Million Thumbprints

I cried myself to sleep last night; it’s been a long time since I’ve done that. Embraced by the power of storytelling; these tears came after reading the reality of war related violence against an Iraqi woman named Amena, which I’ll share below. When I hear about Middle-Eastern violence, or African wars, or sex slavery […]

HerStory: Meet Lisa

Lisa and I met on-line. 🙂 She was looking for a domain name and one thing led to another and well…she found my blog. She couldn’t believe all the similarities between us, touched base and we connected over the phone. Now I’m lucky enough to be able to have her in my life, even if […]

Clothed in Dignity

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. -Proverbs 31:25 On NPR recently, I heard a story about an abortion demonstration in Texas where abortion supporters wore orange and protestors wore blue. I had deeper thoughts about the content of the story, but one of the peripheral things […]

HerStory: Melissa

Melissa and I met during college, where we both were in the nursing program. We reconnected via social media and she’s been an great encouragement to me with my blog. I think you’ll see she’s passionate about the Lord and her family and eating real food in an age where food has morphed into a […]

Friendship

I hosted  a Bible study at my house for a few weeks this summer and one thing emerged as a theme. Though we had a group of bright, warm and intelligent women assembled, I was surprised to hear that nearly all of us were still hungry for deep friendship in our lives. If you looked […]

HerStory: Meet Linda

I want you to meet my friend, Linda! She’s the wife of one of the pastors at our church. HerStory is amazing, like each woman’s, and as a follower of Christ she shows His glory in a unique way to her corner of the world. I find her to be a good listener, a talented […]
