It was my joy to kick off a new season of the PRN podcast with my friend and fellow Enneagram 2, Laura Leigh Moseley. She has many roles in life: saleswoman, wife, mom, teacher, and advocate, and we talk about all of these roles in this week’s podcast. Laura Leigh works as an ambassador for Noonday Collection, and in this episode she tells her story of becoming involved in issues of fair trade and social justice as well as the larger story of Noonday and its mission to fight global poverty.
During our conversation, Laura Leigh shares about a recent trip she took to Ecuador, in which she was able to meet some of the Noonday artisans. She talks about the impact of meeting the artisans face to face and highlights some of the stories behind the jewelry that she sells. We also take a deep dive into Enneagram territory, and Laura Leigh explains how learning more about the Enneagram and her own personality has given her a better understanding of herself, her marriage, and her calling.
In this episode, Laura Leigh mentions three books that have had an impact on her personally:
- Radical by David Platt
- Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger by Ronald Sider
- Generous Justice by Tim Keller
Off the air, she also recommends a few other resources that have influenced her and given her a better understanding of poverty and social justice:
- Imperfect Courage – Jessica Honegger
- When Helping Hurts – Brian Fikkert and Steve Corbett
- Just Mercy – Bryan Stevenson
- Kisses from Katie – Katie Davis
The name Noonday comes from Isaiah:
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungryIsaiah 58:10 NIV
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
