World Premiere: USA Film Festival at the Angelika Dallas. A ground-breaking film by award-winning filmmaker Cheryl Allison. Inspired by historic, unprecedented events fueled by women speaking out on sexual harassment, Shatter the Silence brings the focus to one city - Dallas. Grassroots change starts at the local level with the voices of a community sharing, listening and coming together. Politicians, Clergy, Social Workers, Artists and more discuss sexual harassment and rape culture.
It's not the traditional story that we've heard over the years. Hear what Yvette says about Being Ruth!
NEW: Highlighted as an SMU alumna. Read it here.
Writing is who I am. I believe that clear writing that is liberating, informative and inspirational undergirds everything that we do. Words matter. Whether it’s penning a sermon, Bible study curriculum, crafting a social justice litany or creative non-fiction, writing is life to me.
I am a writer who preaches and a preacher who writes and edits. I am also a food justice activist and I write and lead workshops about how food injustice affects the vulnerable in our communities.
My work ranges from professional writing and editing services to speaking, workshop presentations and preaching.
As an editor, I have worked alongside several pastors utilizing my writing and editing skills, helping them to transform their messages into manuscripts. Some of the books include: Ignite: 50 Days of Prayer That Will Change Your Life, Saving Our Sons: Effectively Engaging Young Men of Color, Are You Afraid of Heights?, Dead End Or Divine Encounter: Discovering Opportunity Through Adversity, Blueprint for Bible Basics, and Breaking Codependency: How to Navigate The Traps That Sabotage Your Life.
My work has been published in several publications including: Tex!, New Texas 2001, New Texas 2003, Kente Cloth, Texas Short Stories II, Langdon Review, The Hoot and Holler of the Owls, Facts on File Companion to 20th Century American Poetry, and Perkins School of Theology Journal (of which I served as editor in 2012).
Additionally, I have written for The Dallas Weekly, The Minority Opportunity News, Arlington Morning News, and served as a copyeditor for Echoes of Empowerment Magazine.
My debut book, Being Ruth: Pressing Through Life’s Struggles with Fearless Faith, was released July 2017.
