Author Interviews

I’ve had the honor of conducting a couple of author interviews recently over at SheLoves Magazine. During Advent, I not only like to read specific devotions but also books that help me slow down, pause, and breathe during this season of anticipation. These two books fit that niche perfectly. They aren’t written specifically for Advent, but their cadence and message would be perfect companions during the next couple months.

Glory Happening was one of my favorite books this fall and I was so excited for the opportunity to interview her! These short meditations helped me to enter into a spirit of pausing and waiting. You can read our conversation over at SheLoves.

Those Who Wait by Tanya Marlow
Tanya is another author I had the honor of interviewing over at SheLoves. Tanya looks at four Biblical stories of waiting and what we can learn from them. Her book can be read at any point but is especially pertinent for this time of year. You can read our conversation over at SheLoves.

What are books that help you get into the spirit of Advent and Christmas that aren’t explicitly about Advent and Christmas?

Interview: Sabeeha Rehman, Author of Threading My Prayer Rug

Last week, I had the honor of talking with Sabeeha Rehman, author of Threading My Prayer Rug: One Woman’s Journey from Pakistani Muslim to American Muslim. We read her book as part of the Red Couch Book Club (check out my discussion post) and it was a delight to ask her more questions and to dive deeper into her story.

Sabeeha’s story about finding her way as a Muslim in America is powerful. Topics we cover include the shifting views on feminism in Islam, American’s relationship and interaction with Islam over the years, and the way Sabeeha’s journey has brought her to advocacy and bridging divides between Christians, Muslims, and Jews. I hope you’ll watch our video and check out her book!
