    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…

  • Family that prays together stays together

    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…

    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…

    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…

  • 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…

    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,…

  • 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.

Take a…

  • DISCIPLINE and LOVE –

    “For whom the LORD loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.” – Proverbs 3:12 Kids are just kids, right? Of course; but, there are behaviors and choices that must be addressed when displayed or exhibited. As my parents would say, “Behind every action, awaits a consequence or a reward. Choose wisely.” As hard as it is to deliver a consequence to a child for a bad choice, the alternative can often be even worse. Recall the first time you felt your newborn in your arms and even in the womb. That love was pure unfiltered love. But I can recall the first time…
