For almost thirty years, Kimberly Cash Tate lived, moved and had her being in blackness. That was who she was. Her decisions, judgments, attitudes and opinions-the way she saw the world--were all filtered through her black lens. Even gender issues paled in relative importance. She was black first. A woman second. But then she acquired another defining adjective--Christian--and her world was turned completely upside down.
In More Christian than African-American, Kimberly shares her life before and after Christ. In transparent prose, she leads the reader through the seasons of growing up in Prince George's County, Maryland, "reveling" in college and finding the love of her life during law school, only to risk losing him when he accepted a position in Madison, Wisconsin. What black woman in her right mind would volunteer to move there? It was too "white." Ultimately, it was the Lord who moved Kimberly to Madison, where He saved her and utterly transformed her view of marriage, motherhood and the career she'd worked so long and hard to achieve. As she ventured beyond the familiarity of race, God changed her identity.

I love how God works in each of us, as we yield to Him. Thank you, Kimberly, for sharing your story with me. Jesus' prayer for us in John 17: 21 comes to mind "...that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you."
