Her first book, Abuelita Faith: What Women on the Margins Teach Us About Wisdom, Persistence and Strength, sits at the intersection of women, decolonialism, the Bible, and Cuban identity.

“Who are the overlooked theologians who might be poor or marginalized or who might not have formal theological education or any education at all? And what sort of wisdom can we learn from them? I’m always seeking wisdom that I have never heard or wrestled with or learned one of my neighbors.”
