    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…

  • Misrepresented Single Moms have voices to help them

    Your Article Misrepresented Single Parents – So Lets Talk!

    Misrepresented Single Parents Have Voices To Support Them And Dreams Of My Own Is One Of Them.   Dear Ashley C. Myers, You’ve publicly slandered & misrepresented single parents, so let’s talk! I stumbled across your article, Problems With Single Parents Households, while conducting additional research for a nonprofit organization I plan to propose in the next coming weeks. Unfortunately I found no means of communicating with you. There was no link to contact you nor reach you via other means. I have sent a contact form to Odyssey, your article’s hosting site, thinking it was at least a reasonable way to reach you. Since your article was written publicly,…

    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…

  • Your Pain IS Your Platform – A Single Mom’s Hope Out Of A Hopeless Situation

    You’ve heard me say this several times before, your pain is your platform. Who best is an expert to your own mess? Get to turning your mess in to a message. Your test in to a testimony. I wanted to share this beautiful story from  Kristina Kuzmic, a comedian, blogger, reality star, chef, a mom, and much much more. What I love about her is her wittiness, her humor, and she really does live up to the name given to her as the “Truth Bomb Mom.” Recently, Kristina shared a video opening up about the struggles she faced after a divorce left her raising her two children alone. Take a…

    Keep Calm – You’re A Blessed Single Mom

    Keep Calm Single Mom Transitioning from a wife to a single mom sure wasn’t easy. Certainly, it was never something I expected or planned for. But the way God built me and with the strength He gave me, no unusual or unexpected circumstance had an effect on the responsibility I was given as a mom.   “First came courage, then came strength.” When I first moved to Minnesota in 2012, I had absolutely no idea what would become of me, my children and our future. At the time, I felt everything in my life was a whirlwind; I didn’t know what to begin with, how to start, or who could…
