Episode 59: Everyday Peacemaking with Osheta Moore


Do you ever feel like motherhood has you confined within the four walls of your home, unable to make a difference in the wider world? On today’s episode, we’re chatting with Osheta Moore— author of “Shalom Sistas: Living Wholeheartedly in a Broken World”—about peacemaking. Is there a better topic to cover the day of midterm elections? Osheta speaks passionately about peacemaking in our everyday lives, encourages us to seek subversive joy in the face of despair, and challenges us to tell better stories about the people who frustrate us. Plus, don’t miss her hilarious story about adjusting to the “vehicular Hunger Games” of the school car line and the one uncomplicated question Osheta asks her kids every day to keep their focus on joy.

If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by the weight of the world, we hope this episode lifts you up and reminds you that you can be a peacemaker right here, right now, right where you are.
