For nourishment these days I am turning to love. Friendships, relationships, new connections are nourishing my heart in this ever changing world.

how would you describe the work you feel called to do in this world (even if it is not the work you get paid for)?

I am called to lush liberation. To walk alongside those that crave freedom, softness and radical rest.

knowing that none of us “has it all together,” what is one question you are wrestling with, or bit of wisdom you are struggling to enflesh in your daily life?

Octavia Butler – “God is Change.”
