"Sarah and Beth are an absolute gift to our culture right now. Not only do they offer balanced perspectives from each political ideology, but they teach us how to dialogue well, without sacri­ficing our humanity."

--Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and founder of Legacy Collective

"Sarah from the left and Beth from the right serve as our guides through conflict and complexity, delivering us into connection. I wish every person living in the United States would read this compelling book, from the youngest voter to those holding the highest office."

--Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Simply Tuesday and The Next Right Thing

More than ever, politics seems driven by conflict and anger. People sitting together in pews every Sunday have started to feel like strangers, loved ones at the dinner table like enemies. Toxic political dialogue, hate-filled rants on social media, and agenda-driven news stories have become the new norm. It's exhausting, and it's too much.

In I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening), two working moms from opposite ends of the political spectrum contend that there is a better way. They believe that we can

choose to respect the dignity of every person, choose to recognize that issues are nuanced and can't be reduced to political talking points, choose to listen in order to understand, choose gentleness and patience.

Sarah from the left and Beth from the right invite those looking for something better than the status quo to pull up a chair and listen to the principles, insights, and practical tools they have learned hosting their fast-growing podcast Pantsuit Politics. As impossible as it might seem, people from opposing political perspectives truly can have calm, grace-­filled conversations with one another--by putting relationship before policy and understanding before argument.

Tension

I’ve been feeling a lot of tension lately.  In my jaw, my neck and shoulders. In my rapid heartbeat and racing thoughts. Maybe you have, too. There’s newfound COVID etiquette and COVID stigma. There’s the fact that many of our neighbors have lost their jobs and that open (and, keyword: safe) positions are few and far between. And among much more, there’s the elephant in the room.  Are we… (more)
