My name is Osheta. It's pronounced, "O-she-da" and so many people have asked if it means something. It doesn't. My dad just made it up.
But if I were to go to Urban Dictionary and create a definition for my name it might say something like this:
An ENFJ mama who loves parties, people, and popcorn with red wine. A pastor's wife who is convinced God has a sense of humor. A Peacemaker who loves Jesus a lot and cusses... a little. An optimistic cookbook reader. A hopeless romantic. A goofball with a little bit of sass.

1 month agoby oshetamHappy (early) anniversary, my Love! There's no one I'd rather listen to two of our favorite theologians ( @realrobbell and @peter_rollins ) talk about the theology of beauty with than you. Thank you for coming up to me sixteen years ago after a church service just to tell me you thought I was beautiful. #anythingbutbw
1 month agoby oshetam"Shalom Sistas" is turned in! When I first shared that I signed a book contract here I promised myself that I would be as open about this process with you guys as possible. It's a scary, vulnerable thing to take the message that you've been given: a message about peacemaking for ourselves and the world and then turn it into a manuscript. And I'm an extrovert with all these big feelings so thank you for going on this journey with me. I celebrate myself but I also celebrate you for being an awesome community of shalom seekers who have loved…

1 week agoby oshetam#Repost@shalominthecity with @repostapp ・・・ Today on the show, Abby and I give you three Shalom Steps to help you become your Sista's keeper. We believe that the first step in racial reconciliation is believing that we as Mother Teresa says, "belong to each other". We are in fact, our Sista's keeper. Take a listen (link in profile) and come back to let us know what race "buzz words". We may discuss them in upcoming episodes.
