    The Family That Prays Together, Stays Together

    Growing up, this was a very common statement. 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 dime piece!” and “He’s fine!” will set the stage for a failed relationship when physical attraction prioritizes and defines…

    Ecclesiastes 3 | A Time, A Season, Appointed Under Heaven

    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! Ecclesiastes 3:1-10 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time…

    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. …

    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…

    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…

    A Call To Prayer, Action And Unity – As A Nation, As A People

    * * * Dreams Of My Own extend deepest sympathy and prayer to all who were affected by the horrific tragedy that occurred in Las Vegas on the night of October 1, 2017. * * * A Society Gone Cold Or A Crisis Of Unity? “Who did this?” “What motivated them?” “Was the intent about race/hate/terrorism?” “Mental health?” “Was it preventable?” Who’s at fault?’ From the most basic individual to the highly esteemed, people are far too focused on perpetuating investigation and proposing their own case study. Arguments are ensued, relationships destroyed and basic respect for people seem so ancient, nowadays, that perhaps it’ll only be rediscovered by excavation. What do…

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

    It’s August 2017! 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? Just a bit about me, I’ve always been fascinated with numbers and their significant meaning. Amongst the many ways God communicates to us, I strongly believe He uses numbers. You can see the use and pattern of  numbers consistently throughtout the bible.  When carefully considered, you’ll notice repetitive…
