On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I chatted with Trillia Newbell about celebrating diversity! Trillia and I talked about everything from how we can practically celebrate people of all backgrounds, to how Jesus himself loved people who were different than him. She said, “When I think of Jesus I think of a man who died for sinners, who died for those who could never repay him, and who related to those who others would shun. His example is ours. It’s what we should aim to live like and live for.” Trillia encourages us to simply love our neighbors and to seek to know them through something as simple as inviting them to share a meal around our tables. Ultimately, we discussed God’s plan to glorify himself by rescuing a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. I know you’ll have so many takeaways from this conversation.

So you’ll know her a little better, Trillia Newbell is the author of  the kids’ book God’s Very Good Idea, as well as Enjoy: Finding the Freedom to Delight Daily in God’s Good Gifts (2016),  Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves (2015) and United: Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity (2014). Her writings on issues of faith, family, and diversity have been published in the Knoxville News-Sentinel, Desiring God, True Woman, Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, and more. She has spoken at numerous conferences, churches, women’s retreats, colleges and seminaries, including True Woman, The Gospel Coalition Women’s conference, Southeastern Theological Seminary, and more. She currently is the Director of Community Outreach for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention. I can’t wait to share her with you guys.

Before we go there, I want to say THANK YOU! Many of you follow Journeywomen on Instagram and if you do, you had a chance to see that my kiddos baptized my laptop last week, completely crashing my hard drive. My friends Sarah Scott, Chloe Hatmaker, and Elizabeth Seifried launched a Go Fund Me and within 12 hours you guys raised enough money to fund an entirely new computer to keep Journeywomen running! I cannot thank you guys enough, truly. Thank you so much for helping make today’s episode possible!

Away was founded by two friends from New York who found themselves at JFK with dead phones, delayed flights, and a bright idea: luggage with power. Thus, the Away Carry-On was born. Away allows you to choose from a variety of colors and four sizes: The Carry-On, The Bigger Carry-On, The Medium, or The Large (for extended stays). It comes with a lifetime warranty and a 100-Day trial, so you can live with it, try it out, and travel with it – if at any point you decide it’s not for you, return it for a full refund – no questions asked. I love Away luggage. It is incredibly well-designed to help me pack efficiently the multitudes of things we pack on trips and can charge a dead phone while traveling! And we all know moms need a charged phone available for traveling! This luggage is perfect to help out a family on the go. For $20 off a suitcase, visit and use promo code HUNTER during checkout!
