    Hagar’s Story – 5 Things Single Moms Should Know And Be Encouraged By!

    I’d first like to be clear in that I am no bible scholar nor a theologian. I’m simply a believer who loves to dig deeper in the Word of God, especially when historical accounts seem all too familiar to the challenges I and others I personally know have faced, or is significant to what I wish to seek answers for. I’ve had some time researching the story of Hagar, praying for fresh revelation as to the true message behind her story, and of course, digging in deeper. In my opinion, the story of Hagar is a remarkable story. Found in Genesis chapter 16, Hagar is first introduced where she is identified as an Egyptian servant to Sarai, wife of Abram, and was chosen…

    The Legacy Of Truth – Seek it. Keep it. Know it. Share it.

     Truth Matters Truth. It took me quite a long time to compose an introduction to this. There’s just so much to consider. Yesterday,  after witnessing my son being racially profiled and disrespected, I was left with only two options – either making an impact for my son or making an impact on the world. “I chose my son.” Right in the grocery store, my son approached the opposite side of the freezer and a man who was already alone in the aisle, looked at my son with so much hate. As he shook his head, he violently grabbed his cart and darted away. We met with the man again upon…

    If God is all you have, you have everything you need!

    So it’s been a new year for a couple of weeks now and like every start of the year, commitments, reflections, and new goals become a focused priority. We look back at accomplishments and failure vowing to make the next year, or next chapter of our lives that is, the most epic of all years and looking forward to that “this is it” moment of our lives. Some of us want good health, financial breakthrough, a developing business, and even hopeful for a spouse this year. It’s part of our make-up as spiritual beings living human lives. We long for more. Now for this here, I’m speaking to those sincere. …

  • When thoughtful actions count – What you can do to help a single parent out.

    Let’s just get one thing straight – money is not always nor the most immediate need of a single parent. I’ll tell you as one who’s been a single mother for a considerably long time, money and time are the most scarce to a single parent, but time is way more valuable than money. A single parent may need money to cover expenses, to meet the needs for the home or even to just get by even if it’s the bare minimum. But time… time is more precious than anything. Time to remember to breathe. Time to slow down and rest. Time to remember who they are again. Time to…

    What’s your 2019 Word of the year?

    Your 2019 Word of the Year Here it is, January. Another new year and the same old question… “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” And we all know what happens with resolutions. They are usually forgotten by mid-February and replaced with a heap of discouragement. Let’s make 2019 different. What if you replaced your resolutions with a word? Just one word to focus on all year. A word that helps you filter decisions, calm emotions and face the each day with resolve. A word that serves as a reminder of God’s truth in your life and inspires you to live your faith each and every day. A word based on God’s…

    STRIPPED | Letting God By Letting Go… All Of It!

    Letting Go is followed by a  change of heart and a change of mind.  After that, letting God suddenly becomes a priority and not the last resort. “The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps.” – Proverbs 16:9 After hurting his ankle, my son woke up one morning with the worst pain. His first steps from getting out of bed signaled the start of a derailed schedule. At first glance, I had to consider the fact that he was a middle schooler… can you guess where I’m going with this? However, after assessing the situation, the pain seemed so unbearable to him as he squeezed…

    Faith Matters

    Consider this… You woke up to a beautiful morning… Someone just took their last breath. Faith Matters. How vulnerable are we during the night? While our bodies rest, there is absolutely nothing we can do about what occurs around us and within us. We simply wake up to a brand new day and move in with our day. Mentally skimming through the schedules of our day, is there any consideration given to our sovereign God who, by grace, permitted this day seen? Thank Him!  You may be frustrated at potentially being late to work… Someone is having trouble finding one. Faith Matters. Dealing with angry commuters, stressing over the possibility of being late, spilling coffee… need I…

    WWW = Website | Work -at- Home | Wealth Stuffing envelopes. Cold calls. Surveys. Secret Shopper. Data entry. Virtual assistance. Poll calling. All of these titles, positions and the like use to represent the realm of work-at-home opportunities way back in the day.  I, myself, have previously tempted to venture some of these opportunities but have often found that more work was required, more time was vested, and the results were disappointing for me. For example, stuffing envelopes. I mean… just how much licking did I need to do to earn a decent living? Not to mention all the weight I’d gain. Did you know that the substance contained in the glue used to seal envelopes…

  • 5 Ways to Make Thanksgiving Memorable After Separation

    *** A post courtesy of Integrous Resolution Services *** It’s that time of year again – Oh, Thanksgiving… a time to give thanks for the blessings in your life, including the blessings of what or who’s no longer in your life – perhaps a former partner or spouse (hint, hint!). Whether you’re happy to be divorced or separated, that doesn’t make the first Thanksgiving after a split any easier. The traditions you had established with your former spouse or partner are now broken, and you now may be forced to come up with a new plan for celebrating Thanksgiving, especially when you have children. As much as it’s easier said…
