when you make a decision that is in alignment with your purpose, the Universe conspires in your favor. there is no shortage of inspiration, as the Divine is an endless well and our ancestors are limitless resources. i am a facilitator and a guide, dancing between the great beyond and the here and now in order for Black women, particularly those in faith communities, live our best lives possible.

I am a body and sex-positive pastor, which means that I am a Black woman spiritual leader who is no longer at war with her body. I believe that sexuality is a gift and is inherently good--it is the abuse of sexuality that is evil. as a new African womanist Christian, I wed the beauty of ancient West African spirituality with the modern teachings of Jesus the Christ--a poor, North African, refugee revolutionary who is both my greatest example of light, love, and liberation.

as a daughter of the African diaspora and the Black Church, I have been disserviced by antiquated dogma regarding my body and sexuality. as a survivor of *trigger alert--sexual assault** childhood sexual abuse and intimate partner violence, I was never given sacred space to name, face, and heal from my sexual trauma. I have decided to be the space maker for Sistas like me: those who love God but also need to reconcile their faith and their sexuality...beyond stale notions of purity steeped in white supremacy and internalized oppression.

I am on a journey of lifelong healing, wholeness, and restoration...join me.
