    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

    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…

  • A Time such as these_Ecclesiastes_Do not be alarmed by the troubles

    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 before heading to head 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.…

  • 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 eat 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…

  • Hello August | Renew And Rediscover Yourself In A Brand New Way

    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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…
