I’m honored today to share the powerful voice of blogger Velynn Brown who writes for some of my favorite online faith magazines including She Loves (a global community of women who love) and The Mudroom (a blog about making room in the mess (of life). Rich with faith-filled passion, Velynn is a poet, blogger, social justice artist & advocate, and CEO of Brown Sugar Inc. Be sure to visit Velynn’s personal blog, Quenched, about ‘thirsting no more’.
With racial divides sweeping throughout our country, Velynn shines a light through troubled territory, challenging us to think, grow more deeply in loving God and our neighbor. She writes, “I am not afraid to ask God about the purpose of pain; whether it rises up in my own life or in the broken world we live in. Race, religion, and redemption are constant themes of thought and identity I wonder over and wrestle with.” Velynn says her heart “beats for the underdog, underprivileged and underloved—because that has been some big pieces of my own story.”
Her writing sinks deep beneath our skin.
Welcome Velynn today and enjoy her blog “Setting Aside Whiteness to be Holy”. Do leave her a comment, and if you have a moment to say hi here to let me know you visited, I’d enjoy hearing from you!
