  • Parable of the Brown Girl: The Sacred Lives of Girls of Color

    Parable of the Brown Girl: The Sacred Lives of Girls of Color

    The stories of girls of color are often overlooked and ignored rather than valued and heard. Instead of relegating these young women to the margins, minister and youth advocate Khristi Lauren Adams brings their stories front and center where they belong. Thought-provoking and inspirational, Parable of the Brown Girl is a powerful example of how God uses the narratives we most often ignore to teach us the most important lessons in life.
