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!

Today, our favorite little sista and her best friend had a sleepover and they wrote a friendship promise to get through Middle School.

 

Enjoy friends! 

Oct 7, 2018

Today I write about this letter I wrote on Instagram (@oshetam)

 

 

Dear White Peacemakers, ⠀

Let’s sit and have an honest heart-to-heart.⠀

As we are stepping up and resisting the injustices of this world, will you commit to being mindful of one thing: you are opting in to an awareness of justice issues- for many people of color we've lived our whole lives navigating systemic brokenness. Brown and Black lives have been lost seeking this shalom, so approach justice efforts with some humility, please. ⠀

If the words and works of resistance from leaders of color inspire you to speak truth to power- give credit where credit is due because their voice was the first to hold the powers accountable. You are joining in their chorus. Know your part. ⠀


If their art moves you to create flourishing for those in need- learn the choreography of shalom by getting in step with the community from which that art was born- learn from them, listen to them, move with them- you are a student in *their* Master Class.⠀


If you quote a black poet, put some respect on her name by understanding the context in which she wrote those words and don’t just use them to make yourself seem more “woke”. ⠀


Because I say this with so much love and hope for our future together: we can stand united against the brokenness of this world if you, as a white person, acknowledge that the Spirit has been moving in communities of color and you're coming to this work from a place of privilege. ⠀


You can sing songs, quote lines, and share art that was created out of hardship and never share in those peoples’ suffering. Jesus modeled a different way. One that put himself right into the place of pain for those whom he loved. ⠀

Be careful, Friends. I often worry about you. Don't play around with this social justice appropriation. It undermines our partnership, gives footholds for pride, adds salt to ancient wounds.

White Peacemakers, please be on guard. Please don’t use the liberation work of people of color to support your resistance and not give them their due respect.

Please model Christ-like humility when seeking justice and doing good. ⠀

Love, ⠀
Your Black Peacemaking Sista⠀

Oh y'all... we're finally getting back on track.  Here are the top peacemaking strategies I need for my marriage. 

Oct 4, 2018

Oh Sistas... sometimes I get overwhelmed. You too? Listen to today's episode.

 

 

Oct 3, 2018

Hey Sistas, 

Today I start the episode with a peacemaking strategy because my son missed the bus.

Then, I share our Peacemaker's Pledge from my book trailer. It's the anchor of our series and what I'll refer to often.

 

We are a sisterhood of everyday peacemakers. We believe that shalom is more than an ancient concept. It’s God's dream for the world as it should be: nothing missing, nothing broken, everything made whole. Shalom is the breadth, depth, climate, and culture of the kingdom God. And we seek to live it out in our lives in small, but important ways: - Doing laundry for a single mom - Listening to a hurting child Or spending time with an elderly neighbor We know that peacemaking happens in the ordinary. These everyday practices of peace are brilliant flickers of light that drive away the darkness. We reject the notion that peacemakers are only quiet and gentle, meek and mild. In fact, some of us are quite sassy, and some of us are quirky. While we all love Jesus, some of us snark a little too. We are women without enemies We choose to love when we’ve been hurt and forgive when we’ve been betrayed. In times like these, we will look past the pain in order to see the person. Then we will tell a better story about them. These counter-stories will change the world. We show up for those on the margins. We speak up for the oppressed. We create rest for those whose lives are in chaos. We reject violence in both word and deed. Because we are peace-makers, not simply peace-keepers! We are all broken people, navigating a broken world, so we will be kind. We throw dance parties when we’re afraid. We will choose joy as a weapon against despair. And we own our belovedness instead of striving for perfection. When we look in the mirror we see beauty—our skin, our size, our style— are God-kissed and delightful. We do all this because we belong to each other. This is is what Jesus meant when he said: “Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God.”: We are family and shalom is written into our spiritual inheritance. So we will be generous with its riches as we live gently in a violent world. In remembering this sisterhood, we will begin to see God's radical peace invade every ordinary corner of our lives, every single day. So, let us be kingdom women, who tell a story of Shalom: the world can be made whole and love will overflow. Let’s be of champions of kindness, ambassadors of goodness, and heroes with humility. Let us be Shalom Sistas! Join us! Order your copy of "Shalom Sistas: Living Wholeheartedly in a Brokenhearted World" today!!! bit.ly/ShalomSistasBook

Hey Sistas,

 

Five things:

 

1: I used my husband's computer to upload this podcast episode and I couldn't figure out how to add the music... so this is an unplugged episode... no intro or music. Just me talk about Shalom.

 

2: We're spending the next 31 days seeking shalom on the podcast. It's going to be fun.

 

3: follow me on Instagram at: oshetam

Join the Facebook hangout here

 

4: We're saying "peace out to perfectionism" today... where have you been tempted to be perfect and perfect became the enemy of good.

5: I'm promising to show up, say something, and be still because... I love y'all.

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.

Today I chat with my friends, Tim and Mariann Reardon, pastors of Pasadena Mennonite about using the female pronoun for God, especially how thinking of God as Mother has healed some past hurts and helped us authentically connect with God.

 

May 22, 2018

On Friday, Trinity and I sat down to share our thoughts about the Royal Wedding. This is a pre-wedding chat. We didn't get a chance to do a post-wedding chat because she's training for a 5K and I just started a new job!  Whoop, whoop. But, if you want, maybe we'll record a quick check in for the Patreon supporters.

Hey Sistas,

 Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: I chat with my friends, Amber Hornsby and Rachel Hanus, co-founders of ESTHER homes, a beautiful transition home for single mamas and pregnant women. Y'all, I joined the board of ESTHER as the president last month and I have to tell you God has been leading me to this moment for YEARS. This episode means so much to me because when was 20, I was a junior in college and found myself in an unplanned pregnancy and if it were not for women like my guest today, I would have had an abortion and quite possibly lost my faith.  

 

2:  We have a Patreonto 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. 

3:We need $100 more to start a contract with an editor.   This week’s thank you gift in Patreon is this cool resource I received from my friend, Shannan Martin who was episode #3. She wrote a four day Mother's Day campaign that you can sign up for for FREE and you'll get an email a day for four day. BUT  If you're a Patreon, you'll get all four days in one PDF called, "A New Way to Mother's Day" in your feed.

Hey Sistas,

 

Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: I answer questions from the “Shalom Sistas” community today:

  • Share about supper club?
  • What do you say to women who are forced to see and interact with their abuser or their rapist during church? What do you tell a woman who has to walk up to the alter next to a man who would rape her or who beat her because they share a child in common and our current legal system and family court is so incredibly broken that they refuse to protect her? I want to know, because no one will give me an answer. 
  •  How do we respond when looking back at great tragedies that were stopped by war, such as the Holocaust? Can you share some scripture that calls for nonviolence?
  • Do I still like the snow?
  • What do you mean when you say you are an Anabaptist?

Apr 6, 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

 Hey Sistas,

 

Today, I share all the things she's most excited about the return of the podcast for season 3.

 

Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: I met with the Tuesday morning women’s small group at Slate Hill Mennonite church and we talked about my book “Shalom Sistas”. They were drinking my lemonade recipe during the call, which made my day. 

 

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: The sound quality is a bit spotty here and there because we were talking over Skype and the phone, but it was still a wonderful conversation. We touch on everything from how to choose which manifesto point to work on, what to do about church conflict, what is our Anabaptist life hacks, and how to intervene when we see conflict out in public.

Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: We have new music to match our new direction in season 3. It's called "Girl Power" and it. Is. GLORIOUS! 

 

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: I get vulnerable about my heartbreak in Los Angeles and how it affected my eating, faith, and identity.  

 

Two Important Reminders:

1: Our beautiful co-hosts: Abby, Jerusalem, and Cara are moving to "Friend of the Show" roles. They'll be showing up every once in a while, but not in an official co-host role. Thank you, Ladies for helping me hopefully resist.

 

2:  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.  

Shalom and New Beginnings,

 

Osheta

Sistas!  

Listen: don’t feel overwhelmed by keeping your New Year’s Resolution to eat healthier in 2018, let our resident Shalom Sista: Christine Brandt encourage you.

Christine Brandt is a certified health coach and the owner of Nourished!  She lives in LA with her husband and when she's not watching Scandal, reading Harry Potter, or hanging out at the dog park, she's loving on her clients.  She spends most of her time cooking for local clients, but is starting a new journey into the world of podcasting! 

Today we talk about three small changes in our lifestyle diets that to make our favorite comfort foods more nourishing for our bodies. We talk about having a healthy theology of food, offering grace to ourselves, and indulging in moderation.

Recipes shared in episode

Make sure you check out Christine's podcast, "We Feel Super Nourished" today. The sneak peek to the pilot is in today's episode.

 

Shalom Steps:

1: Give it (at least) 30 Days

2: Remember you are MORE than what you eat

3: Make Nehemiah 8:10 your mantra

“Go and enjoy good food because today is a holy day to the Lord”

Today for “Enough” week I have on our favorite Justice Pirate: Victoria Tiedemann.

She tells us how she becomes a "Simple Minimalist" and how rejecting the allure of more, more, more has helped her live into our manifesto point: We are enough!

She also answers a question from a listener on seeking shalom through simplicity this holiday season:

After my pastor's sermon on Sunday on "Enough" and years of reading books of people who stopped buying things for a set time, I'm seriously flirting/committing myself to limiting purchases in the next year to experiences and necessities."

Victoria has me thinking that this holiday season I want to create experience gifts AND really fill my home with things I both use and LOVE.

It's a great episode and I can't wait to hear what you think:

Hey Sistas,

 

Thanks to my amazing publisher, today I'm reading the first chapter of "Shalom Sistas" for you.  So sit back, relax...wait! Who am I kidding? You're probably getting stuff done while you listen to podcasts, so I hope this chapter of the books makes you laughs, think, and make you feel like you're just chatting with a good friend while you work.

Have you grabbed you copy of Shalom Sistas yet?  Yesterday, it was shared as one of Sarah Bessey's favorite non-fiction book— yay! I'm so honored but more than that, I'm grateful for this amazing tribe of peacemakers who are reading and responding to the book.

Also, today I'm coming at you from a hotel room in Denver Colorado. Oh my goodness y'all, I'm in a room all by myself and it. Is. Magical.

Today for “Beloved” week I brought in my beloved husband, T.C. We answer lots of questions from y’all on family dynamics, non-violence and Halloween, pastoral care, and so much more. TC is the wisest person I know so I am SO CONFIDENT that y’all will love this conversation and take away a few shalom steps. Like I say in “Shalom Sistas” we’re just two nerds who fell in love with each other.
