Inspiration For Your Ears & Soul: From Valerie June to Writer Roxane Gay & Women Creating Change  

In honor of Women’s History month, I would like to highlight even more amazing women artists and change makers as part of this regular series, starting with singer Valerie June.

I discovered her work a few years ago – what a sound! Her latest album, The Order of Time, is beautiful. Workin’ Women Blues and Somebody to Love are always on repeat.

From Standing Rock to Oakland, CA women organizers are standing up and creating change.

Loving this article about great books for creatives to read.

Roxane Gay is such a phenomenal writer. I started Difficult Women yesterday, and the richness of these short stories…


Have you seen her TED talk on feminism and embracing all of the diverse ideas about what this means for all kinds of women with varied experiences?

The podcast Don’t Keep Your Day Job is always full of wisdom. Check out some of the latest episodes here – including a recent conversation with fashion designer Susan Lazar on unlocking our potential.

Nina Simone lived from her truth, and she had a deep desire to create change. I am always empowered listening to her speak. This clip, about the beauty of celebrating blackness, is timeless!

These young women are organizing to impact their communities, one day at a time.

Viola Davis reminds us all that every voice and experience matters.  And of course, we must never underestimate the power of imagination.

Mother, wife, sister, friend, writer / blogger / creative organizer, budding photographer... These are just a few of the many hats I juggle each day. I believe creativity is oxygen for the soul. I created Live In Color blog to celebrate the beauty in every moment, from faith to inspiration and motherhood.And it is soon becoming Pray with Our Feet blog which will focus on the intersection of faith and activism.
