    Reset, Refresh and Renew | 3 Biblical Principals To Welcome August In A Brand New Way

    It’s August 2019! A time to RENEW as the end of this year rapidly approaches. Sometime during the latter part of July, and for no apparent reason, I started thinking about the month of August. August is the eighth [8th] month of the year so we’ve only got four [4] more months till the end of the year! Can you believe it? I’ve always been fascinated with numbers and their significant meaning. Of the multitude of ways God communicates with us, I strongly believe He uses numbers most significantly with me. You can see the use and pattern of numbers consistently throughout the bible.  When carefully considered, you’ll notice repetitive…

    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. Hagar’s story exemplifies the purpose of  why I created. Dreams of My Own. 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 Hagar’s Story, 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…

    Girl Don’t Clap Back… Breathe

    Now wait a second girl, don’t do it. Don’t clap back! Friend, allow me to encourage you for a moment because I know you need to hear this. NEVER let the opinion of others to break you even if it’s from someone close to you like a friend, spouse or sibling. You have a journey to ride and you don’t need intentional bumps in the road to slow you down. Trust and believe that you can count on someone or a group of people designated and perhaps dedicated to show up in the middle of your progress and stomp all over you. While there are multiple ways one can clap back to the frustration, your time is far too valuable. So don’t clap back at haters. “Birds fly, fishes swim, and haters hate.”…

  • 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…

  • Single Dads’ Involuntary Silence – The Pitch For Your Voice

    Hey, I need to hear from you! You, single dad. You, father. You, who knows a father. I’ve personally met and worked with parents behind the scenes who face difficulty as a single parent and subsequently navigating the system as required of them in order to reunify with their children. Most often, it’s with mothers – but this is not to say that fathers are not involved. While I can certainly touch on this topic alone, my preference is to pitch on a subject that is widely recognized but has rarely been supported on the public platform. Single Dads – their lack of representation and support, and the need to…

    Faith It Till You Make It and Keep PUSHing!

    I woke up this morning hearing the word “Faith”. In my dream, I remember having a conversation with God asking Him for the “when”. When will the time come, God? What is there left for me to do that I haven’t done yet? Is there something I haven’t sought forgiveness on? Is there someone I haven’t forgiven? Where am I displeasing you, Lord? Am I the only one who’s been there? When you begin to develop a relationship with God, you begin to know Him, you begin to know yourself, and you begin to know purpose. Once you begin to understand purpose, you begin to see (faith) in a totally…

    Just do it – PRAY

    Have you ever found yourself stuck in what you should actually “say” in the moment of prayer? This girl has her hand raised. Sometimes it flows simply, other times I struggle with keeping my sentences together. But I want to share with you that it doesn’t have to be that way. You’ve heard it before, prayer is just having a talk with God. He’s not impressed with word choice, vocabulary or even if they rhyme or not. He just wants to hear from you. A while ago, I found a really interesting definition for prayer – “Prayer is an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with God…

  • Family that prays together stays together

    The Family That Prays Together, Stays Together

    Growing up, this was a very common statement in regards to prayer. Some have even changes it up a bit to not just “family” but “couple”, “siblings”, “friends”… you get the point. But not only was is stated, it was expected and practiced daily. There was no eating without praying. No sleeping with out praying. There was no leaving the home without praying. It was apart of our lives and it was what we do. “Does prayer exist in today’s families and relationships?” Today, too many couples are “coupling up” as a result of physical attraction and disregarding the ordained attraction. Relationships today fail to include and prioritize spiritual commonality as a factor. Statements like, “She’s a…

    A Time Such As These… “And when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be afraid for these things are going to happen first, but the end will not have yet arrived.” – Luke 21:9 There certainly is a lot too talk about these days that it can drive someone to the edge. Facebook feed posts, in-person conversations, news/media headlines… ones sanity has got to be seriously curated and invested in. Ecclesiastes 3 just dropped in my spirit and I simply wanted to share it with you. Remember to always be vigilant,alert, and stay prayed up!

    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. …
