Explaining her motivation to write Raise Your Voice, Ms. Khang says 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.”
The former journalist who spent more than 20 years in parachurch ministry working with college students and training organizational and church leaders co-authored More Than Serving Tea. She comments, “The book 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 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.”
She says “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.”
