Giving Friends Room To Release Their Voice GreeneBarr Peppers

This week, I welcome Deborah Peppers to the podcast. In her roles as a university administrator, pastor and leader of female clergy, we delve into the ways in which females foster empowering relationships. In this discussion we also touch on the social aspect of female voices silenced in the public square. If you are a female who has felt the pressure to be seen and not heard, this podcast will speak to you.

Yes, you can quote our “Pearls of Wisdom”

*When you truly love someone then you are willing to accept them as they are. – EMILYGAIL DILL

When you truly love someone then you are willing to accept them as they are and that doesn’t mean that they will not hurt, that doesn’t mean that there will not be bombs along the way because there will.

*Being open and honest with one another becomes the real foundation for great friendship – EMILYGAIL DILL

*In sisterhood, individuals are united by a common bond – EMILYGAIL DILL

*It is wonderful when you have sister-friends because you share common bonds. – EMILYGAIL DILL

It is wonderful when you have sister-friends because you share those common bonds. You have that high level of trust and then you have that friendship and you can be yourself, have fun together, cry together and laugh together.

*When you fully accept your self then you are able then to be able to empathize with those that are around you. – EMILYGAIL DILL

When you fully accept your self then you are able to empathize with those that are around you and build better friendships because I often have them to reflect on how they would feel if something was being done to them and having them to understand each other and be there for one another.

*You have to really believe beyond the shadow of doubt that when your intentions are pure, the end result will eventually be what it needs for it to be – EMILYGAIL DILL

 *When you love someone, you are there through the good, the bad, the ugly. – EMILYGAIL DILL

When you love someone, you are there through the good, the bad, the ugly You are going to be there for them and you are going to treat them with the respect that you would want to be treated with.

Call To Action:

Ask your self have you had a chance to share that thought or opinion with the person for whom you hold that opinion, so if you are talking and it can be an innocent conversation but if you are talking in a group and you happen to mention something about a female that you might be trying to develop a friendship with, if you haven’t shared with them what it is you are really feeling about them then your call to action is to be courageous enough to set some time to have that conversation
