Lighten Up #5: Osheta Moore


This week I talk with Osheta Moore, podcaster and blogger at Shalom in the City, about her practice of shalom, lightening up about dinners, and her hair. Then we deep dive into The Princess Bride about everything from favorite quotes, characters, and scenes to if The Machine could suck one year of your life away, which one would you want it to suck?
