Welcome.

I write to exhale, working out being a misfit, alien, idealist, beloved. This is how I do tenderness in a concrete world.

Here's my more "official" info:

A New York native, Sharifa earned a bachelor of arts degree from Columbia University before moving to Dallas, Texas, where she received a master of theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. She contributed to the book Vindicating the Vixens: Revisiting Sexualized, Vilified, & Marginalized Women of the Bible. Sharifa is currently the Content Director of IF: Gathering. She is wife to a Renaissance man and mother to two lively boys.
