Amena Brown is an author, spoken word poet, speaker and event host.
Amena performs and speaks at events from coffeehouses to arenas with a mix of poetry, humor, and storytelling. She and her husband Matt reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
In her new book, How to Fix a Broken Record: Thoughts on Vinyl Records, Awkward Relationships, and Learning to Be Myself, Amena chronicles her journey of feeling unworthy to being loved and how God’s healing power replaced the scratchy taunts of her past.
From discovering to appreciate her natural hair, surviving a series of bad dates and meeting her husband when all hope was lost, the disappointing journey to one day having children, mending a broken relationship with her father and more, readers are provided with thought-provoking actions to reflect on their own story and relationship with God.
Amena invites readers into the lyrical and humorous journey of learning how to silence their negative thoughts on repeat.
In her signature soulful style, Amena uses a collection of vulnerable stories from her early thirties to share how faith, vinyl records, and relationships can replace broken records with truth and healing.
Amena and I chatted about her book chapter by chapter. Her stories are so real and so relatable, we laughed and nearly cried while chatting online in our pajamas over coffee, like girlfriends.
I’m sure that, as always, you’ll see through the eyes of God’s sacred unifying grace how much you have in common with women. I hope that as you hear Amena’s stories, you’ll be encouraged to share your stories and allow other women to share their stories and be themselves – the beautiful daughters of God and members of the body of Christ He created us to be.
