Toni Collier joins me for Episode 72. Not only is she a wife and mother, she is also a dynamic, ambitious, accomplished young woman who went from the corporate world to the ministry world. And we have a conversation about racial reconciliation. We talk about why diversity is important, what is the key to moving forward in this arena and what women uniquely bring to the table.
I am thankful that I have friends who welcome the awkwardness into the room so that we can have an honest conversation about something that feels a little touchy.
One takeaway that I had from our conversation was what she said about multiculturalism. "Multiculturalism is the way forward. In order for us to live out our greatest capacity and get to experience everything the world has to offer we have to get outside of our four walls." We have to work hard to get outside of our own bubble and experience the world. And I loved that her suggestions were easy and doable. All of us can take a step in that direction and you step may look different from my step. Maybe for you its reading a book on black history. Maybe for you its googling something about racial reconciliation. Maybe for you its inviting someone over for coffee or a kids playdate who is different from you. We can all start somewhere.
Thank you for following along life with me. I love being apart of your day. And as always, I hope this show helps you survive a little easier.
