    E64 A Cultural Lens of Lent and Holy Week

    E64 A Cultural Lens of Lent and Holy Week

    We 3 Latinas talk about our experiences with Lent and Holy Week and how it differed for us as Latin women. Leslie and I have a Catholic background, so we grew up with a Catholic view, but even she and I, still had marked differences in how we celebrated this most sacred of times. Jessica grew up Pentecostal and her involvement with Lent was non existent and her home celebrated differently than we did. It was a great way to show that even though our roots are similar, we are not monolithic.

    E63 Lent: A time of Lengthening Our Desire for God

    At this point the Lenten Season is well on its way. Kai and I talk about what shaped our view of Lent and even though it is not a biblical command, it sure can be used as a time to draw closer to God. We talk about sin, repentance and shame, and how we view those can be attached to how we view Holy Week.

    E62 Honoring Friendships with Jessica and Her BFF

    E62 Honoring Friendships with Jessica and Her BFF

    This is the last episode dedicated to friendships. What I loved about Jessica and Cindi's relationship was their age difference. Their friendship is a great example to us that we don't have to be peers to foster deep, loving friendships. They have a deep trust and mutual respect that was amazing to experience. We hope you enjoyed this series and that you left with tools to either improve your friendships or to start new ones.

Truth Teller

I love listening to Xamayta’s podcast. Not only is this podcast full of life and abundant joy, it is full of Truth with a capital T.

Spice it up!

I love listening in as Xamayta chats with friends about the real things in life. She challenges us to be thinking about the truth we are living, the way we're impacting our community and what kind of spice we bring to our interactions with others. I'm still trying to figure out my spice. 😉

The only guy listening

Hello X. I may be the only guy listening but I have enjoyed getting to hear the sound of friendship and laughter on your podcast. I have found myself at work wondering what spice I might be. I can’t wait until season 2. Keep it up.
