She is the author of Unheard Voices: A Desire For Wholeness in the Black Church and her upcoming work is titled Millennials: Young, Gifted, and Silence. She is an advocate for the Millennial generation where she conducts her research on the millennial culture, proposing the question of whether or not the Millennial generation can be embraced and re-engaged back into the church. This is done through the interwoven lens of multiple generations and how their relationship has formed within the Millennial Culture. She writes a weekly blog on the questions and issues that may occur surrounding the millennial culture. It is within this process that she is attempting to bridge the gap between the Millennial generation and more seasoned generations.
