The weather is getting cooler and holidays are near! This is an awesome time to reflect, seeking inspiration and wisdom. I am listening to a lot these days (as usual), and wanted to share some of the latest audio gems resonating with my soul.

This Is No Time to Loose Your Head, Bishop T.D. Jakes, a timely reminder to rely not on our own wisdom, but God’s as an anchor, particularly during tough times. 

I recently did some promotional work for a local festival, Art-AGstravaganza. Hop’t, a rock / blues band, performed live. Their dynamic sound is electrifying! 

With our support, they can release their first EP.  Click here to help. 

 Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s brilliant talk on why we should all unapologetically identify as feminists. Her short book, adapted from this lecture, is an elegant and heartfelt call to honor the depth of feminity.

When we are true to our passions, the world opens. It’s such a refreshing way to live. 

I enjoyed another Jess Lively podcast learning about one of the founders of the Simple Green Smoothies, Jadah Sellner. 

There are moments when we all feel alone, as if God has abandoned us. Plumb’s profound song, “Need You Now” urges us to call out and rest in our creator, even when it’s tough. 

Love, love, love her energy! This webinar by Hilary Ruthsford of Dean Street Society about leveraging the power Instagram to propel your business forward rocks!

Awesome short NPR weekend edition story about how one man, musician Franklin Bell, created a home for the blues and community in his South Central, LA garage.

This week flew with dizzying speed so I listened to more music than podcasts, but still managed to catch inspiration from a plethora of sources.

My hairstylist Dominique turned me on to a heartfelt gospel song “Worth” by Anthony Brown and Group TherAPy.  Its such a beautiful reminder that God’s love for us is boundless and liberating.

Shannon, my bestie and LIC blog contributing writer, spent this week rocking out to Vixen Noir, an eclectic music artist who’s song “Dangerous,” celebrates independence and strength.

Andra Day, with her lovely vintage look and soulful sensibilities is officially one of my favorite new artists. Her song “Rise Up” eloquently captures the relentless spirit of determination. “I’ll rise up unafraid,” she sings boldly.

I just discovered Lizz Wright has a new album, Freedom and Surrender. The behind-the-scenes video is about this latest offering is fascinating; its always great to hear the artist discuss their work.

Affirming the lives of all black folks matters is essential for America’s healing. I love Koli Tengella’s take on this issue. His commentary is regularly featured on The Marc Steiner show, my favorite daily radio broadcast airing WEAA 88.9 FM.
