Show Notes

Welcome to Lavish Hope, Season 3, I’m Liz Testa. It’s Women’s History Month, and for this episode, I’m delighted to welcome fellow-podcaster, diversity consultant, preacher, professor, founder of Preach Sista!, a nonprofit that helps people deepen their faith and care for their souls and co-author of the recently released book Diversity Playbook: Recommendations and Guidance for Christian Organizations. Michelle shares some of her journey as a woman of color in the church and academia, and the many ways God has called her to overcome barriers, live freely and fully into her gifts and help others do the same. You won’t want to miss her reflections on persistence, understanding that we are following God’s call and not our own, and the importance of refilling one’s tank, especially when engaged in diversity work and what she describes as the Lily Pad effect. You will leave this session inspired and hopeful, with new insights and tools to apply to your own life. Let’s jump in!
