Jessica Bruder
“Being human means yearning for more than subsistence. As much as food or shelter, we require hope.”
Jessica Bruder, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

Stephanie Anne Allen
“If you are sitting in the dark (due to depression) go turn the light on. If you can't find the light switch, seek the help of someone who can.”
Stephanie Anne Allen, How to Survive Depression: Book #1 in How to Survive Series

“The truth is that to displease men, to disobey them, is still deadly for women. But the truth also is that only when we stop obeying men do we truly begin to live.”
Sonia Johnson, Going Out of Our Minds: The Metaphysics of Liberation

Trista Hendren
“The misrepresentation of God as strictly male has wounded women in every area of their lives.

Women are raped, abused, molested, trafficked and prostituted because the desires of men (AKA God) are prioritized over the emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual needs of women and girls. The misrepresentation of God as male ensures that women and girls will always be considered last.

The images of God as “Father” and "Savior" are the foundations that patriarchy and misogyny are built upon.”
Trista Hendren

Jessica Bruder
“THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ITINERANTS, drifters, hobos, restless souls. But now, in the second millennium, a new kind of wandering tribe is emerging. People who never imagined being nomads are hitting the road. They’re giving up traditional houses and apartments to live in what some call “wheel estate”—vans, secondhand RVs, school buses, pickup campers, travel trailers, and plain old sedans. They are driving away from the impossible choices that face what used to be the middle class. Decisions like: Would you rather have food or dental work? Pay your mortgage or your electric bill? Make a car payment or buy medicine? Cover rent or student loans? Purchase warm clothes or gas for your commute? For many the answer seemed radical at first. You can’t give yourself a raise, but what about cutting your biggest expense? Trading a stick-and-brick domicile for life on wheels?”
Jessica Bruder, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century
