I wanted to invite the peace of God, and my powerhouse friend Melissa to join me for an important and timely conversation.

Today’s guest, Melissa Dawn Simkins, and I are going to have a very real conversation to offer perspective and even small heartfelt steps we can all take.

  • How to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
  • How to lead with empathy and be intentional.

Our Prayer

Dear God,

With hearts united in Christ, we come together to bring peace, awareness and even actionable steps to facilitate change.

Help us equip those who are longing to help, but don’t know what to do. 

You see the unspoken hurt, the unspeakable pain, but we know the power of your unstoppable love. 

Show us how to be your light.

We are your vessels. 

We will use our voices, and do the work to be the change we want to see.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Biblical foundation to lead with empathy, love and peace:

  • A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. (John 13:34)
  • There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Gal. 3:28)
  • So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Gen 1:27)
