I know this wondrous little person has the potential to change the world—and I want him to know it too. The love of black mothers for their sons is a gift to the world—and the church. She invites us to read over her shoulder as she reminds Wynn that his identity is firmly planted in the person and work of Jesus Christ, even when the topic is one as emotionally charged as race in America. She teaches humanities in a classical Christian school in Jackson, Mississippi, where she and her husband, Phillip, are parenting two young sons. I want to teach him that, though life's unfair, he still has incomparable value in the eyes of his heavenly Father. Anyone looking for an honest yet hopeful exploration of what it means to be black, a mom, a wife, and a Christian—in all the ways those labels interact—will find a witty, womanly, biblical, theologically sound guide in Jasmine as she talks with her boys, and ours. I know he'll grow up with stories of having been made to feel 'other' because of the color of his skin. So much is yet to be done to repair the sins of the past; so much is still possible through the church of Jesus Christ, who carried our burdens and become the way of reconciliation.
