My Malawian Mom August 7th, 2016

Meet Josefa, a wonder of a woman and someone to whom I owe the deepest of gratitude. Josefa is unique amongst Malawian women because she lived most of her life as a Sister in monasteries. Though she is plenty familiar with farming and village life, her unique environment also encouraged her to explore her more artistic side and gave her opportunities to travel to monasteries in other countries such as Kenya and France. Possibly the most unique thing about her is that she has never been married, which in Malawi often means being subservient, to a man. Her resulting self-confidence shines for miles around her and she has become a beacon of light and wisdom in the Mganja area, which she now calls home.
