Kathy Khang is the author of Raise Your Voice: Why We Stay Silent and How to Speak Up. She wrote it to challenge and encourage everyone to find and use their influence to bring about the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Kathy is a writer, speaker, coffee drinker, and yoga teacher, and the journey of this book began in childhood diaries & journals, moved into newsrooms, and then to a co-authored book entitled More Than Serving Tea. Raise Your Voice is about the intersection of faith, culture, and gender, and it tells just part of an important story of Asian American Christian women.
“The title of the book,” Kathy says, “tells as much about the content as it does about me. It connects the hope of “more” to that of a stereotypical image of both “Asian” as represented by the West – submissive servant – and “women” as represented by the West, the East, and by some interpretations of Biblical Womanhood. I can still serve others, enjoy tea (I prefer coffee), embrace my complex ethnic/cultural/racial identity and my womanhood, all the while loving Jesus while living and leading in an imperfect world.”
