    Thank you for your posts. This last week i have felt as if I am attending the funeral of social justice on US American soil. Your posts help to understand and continue the fight. Thank you.

    God bless you woman of God for standing for truth. Very few Black and Whites have the boldness to do what you are doing. Hats off to you! May God by His Spirit grant you more grace to do what He has called you to do. I declare no weapons formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against you shall be condemned. God has given you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and nothing by any means shall harm you. You are blessed and God has called you in this season to speak his Word to a dying generation…and with that being said…your fruit shall remain until Jesus comes back to get his bride.

    Your sister in Christ,

    I love your posts!! Thank you for giving our society such well stated, logical thoughts about race, privilege, etc.. Often we have difficulty discussing these issues because we tend to emotionally react in defensiveness against the idea that we have “done something wrong”. The fact that you can shine a clear light on social issues without emotional accusation and shame inducing language will hopefully help some of your readers to put aside their defensiveness and truly consider whether they may be participating in behaviors that, intentional or not, prevent social justice. I guess what I’m trying to say is, you rock and I’m grateful to you for taking the time and effort to educate us about such important issues affecting our country. Thank you.
