New Release Spotlight: Lyvonne Briggs

THIS BOOK. Y’all, this book. This one has been needed for so long!

In Sensual Faith, Lyvonne Briggs draws on a womanist perspective to exhort Black women to overcome religious shame and love their bodies. It’s time to practice a spirituality that harmonizes our bodies with pleasure and sexuality.

The world has made Black women feel as if their bodies are mere instruments, and Christianity has positioned sexuality as evil. In this book, Lyvonne gently shows women how to reclaim what has been theirs all along.

Filled with wellness rituals, journal prompts, affirmations, and practices, Sensual Faith shows us how to celebrate our bodies as our very homes.

I am so very proud of Lyvonne for this beautiful work. Happy release day!
