Zealous Conversations: More than a Podcast

IMG_3302.JPG

I'm so pleased to share my newest venture, Zealous Conversations!

It's my calling as a believer to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to ends of the earth. Honestly, it's every believer's calling. But it doesn't necessarily mean that we all share or present the Word in the same manner. 

Personally, I'm a talker. I love to encourage and motivate others through use of my words and my voice. My career is in journalism, a field where truth is the pillar. My passion is being a witness for Christ, where truth is also the pillar.  So why not mesh the two?! 

Zealous Conversations is a place where the focus is to shine the light (Matthew 5:16) and set the standard (Romans 12:2) for Christ. It is built on growing in the truth of the Gospel and being equipped to become effective examples and disciples. 

I still have a TON of growing to do personally, so having this platform is most certainly a way of challenging me to go much deeper in my study of the Word and in my daily walk as a Christian. Speaking the Word of God to others comes with so much responsibility, but I am willing to rise to the occasion for the bettering of myself and everyone who chooses to listen. 

The first two episodes are below. I hope you enjoy!

New Job. New City. New Life.

I'm SO pleased to share that 33 days ago I made the biggest life decision to date. 

I packed up my things and moved to Central Virginia to pursue my lifelong dream. I accepted a position as a digital content producer at an ABC news affiliate! 

I'm now a single girl in my own world following my one and only career aspiration... to be a journalist. For as long as I can remember, this is what I've wanted. From the morning announcements in middle school to receiving my degree from University of Maryland, the Lord was faithful to me.

This is only the beginning. My foot is in the door and now I have every desire to climb my way to the anchor chair.  

I do miss the city life, but I'm so very thrilled to be on this new adventure with God and those He brings along my path. 

Single Saved and Social: Conversations in the City (Brunch Edition)

All signs pointed to Baltimore as Jennifer Trotter and Cheston Green hosted their second Single Saved and Social event. But this time... we had brunch! I had the pleasure of once again serving as the media correspondent for this culture-changing movement.

The topics for the day centered around the Hill Harper book, The Conversation: How Men and Women Can Build Loving, Trusting Relationships. The discussion was dynamic as both men and women pitched in to share their opinions and refutations related to Christian dating in today's society. 

Who wouldn't want to have a dope chat over good food?!

College Day at Ark of Safety Christian Church

The awesome panel! 

The awesome panel! 

It brought me great pleasure to be invited to share wisdom with middle and high school students who are interested in attending college. My fellow panelists and I shared the good, the bad, and the not so wonderful realities that come with that chapter of life. I find it important to pay it forward in sharing insight so that the next generation can be best prepared for the future. 

More than anything, I want to see others succeed and make the right choices. 

And lastly... go Terps!

Diversity in Media Panel

Diversity in the media is often a double-edged sword. While we're beginning to see more people of color representing on radio and television, there is still much progress to make. I and two of my colleagues sat on a panel to discuss the state of diversity in the media. We touched on topics from how we are portrayed in the media as people of color to how we are able to create our own narratives. 

It was a fruitful discussion on a topic that should indeed be discussed more on a larger scale. 

Special thanks to the Beta Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc, for the invitation!
