    Happy New Year! 4 Lessons 2020 Taught Me for Year 2021

    Happy New Year to you! Who else is excited as me to see 2020 out the door and welcome in 2021? But of course with caution. Last year, we all cheered on 2020 just as we did last night but who could’ve imagined what we were going to face. Together. We all know what 2020 brought upon and one thing for sure, we all involuntarily experienced a major shift in our lives. In one full swoop, our world was changed. Lives were suddenly lost, even the most closest and precious to us. Jobs suddenly lost or folks suddenly experiencing a loss of income. Formal school suddenly becoming not so formal.…

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

    It’s August 2020! 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. Girl 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…

    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…

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

    Lately, I’ve been dealing with something a bit more personal than I’ve ever experienced. It’s more of feeling like a huge boulder pressing in on me that no matter how strong I may think I am, that boulder’s only purpose is to keep me down and from reaching higher. Or how about the illustration of a thumb – pressing down over me to keep me from being authentic. No matter the illustration [perhaps you have a similar one] the feeling it gives you is of oppression. It hasn’t always been that way, though. But given the circumstances the enemy is in, it’s no mystery to me that this battle is…

    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…
