This book has been published at a kairos moment in our collective history as many of us in communities of color wonder how to use our voice individually and corporately for the sake of the "other." As a Latina woman, I have often fought the voices around me telling me to never raise my voice if I want to "be used in ministry" or if I want to be "chosen" to be on a great church team. I have had to come to terms that sometimes, most times, raising your voice will cost you something. I love Kathy's gentle and wise voice, sharing her own personal narrative of coming to terms with the use of her voice and helping readers understand that there is a time to speak up and a a time to stay silent as things work for change. This book was encouraging and practical without being bitter and angry. I love her funny stories sprinkled throughout the book which made her seem approachable and just like any other woman with a myriad of things going on but with a heart to speak for those who can't speak for themselves. I interviewed her on this book (if you want to catch the video on FB, go here) and told her then that I believe this is an excellent primer for those who want to start to dip their toes in the water of advocacy. You can purchase the book here.
Coming up next! We will be hosting a Facebook Live Interview on this book with Dr. Graham Hill on Monday, August 27, 2018 at 8 pm. Be sure to like us and follow us here.
