A(nother) Story Giveaway! *Special Dispatch*


Today I have a treat for you, dear reader.

One long promised (apologies for the delay). Last week, one of my favourite people in the world published a book she put her whole heart, story, and self into. To help teach people through her own experiences and through the knowledge she’s gained along the way about soul care and fighting white supremacy.

One of my recently shared “Stories Well Told” was about Rachel Ricketts’ new book, Do Better: Spiritual Activism for Fighting and Healing from White Supremacy. It is a masterclass in authentic, honest storytelling with purpose. Rachel describes it as a book written to white women for BIWOC. Really, it’s a guide for anyone who has had intentions to better understand and address white supremacy but hasn’t known where to start.

It also provides compelling insight into the lived experience of Black women in the world. I want as many people as possible to read it, which is why I’m giving away three copies of this remarkable book.
