    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…

    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…

    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. …

  • When thoughtful actions count – What you can do to help a single parent out.

    Let’s just get one thing straight – money is not always nor the most immediate need of a single parent. I’ll tell you as one who’s been a single mother for a considerably long time, money and time are the most scarce to a single parent, but time is way more valuable than money. A single parent may need money to cover expenses, to meet the needs for the home or even to just get by even if it’s the bare minimum. But time… time is more precious than anything. Time to remember to breathe. Time to slow down and rest. Time to remember who they are again. Time to…

    What’s your 2019 Word of the year?

    Your 2019 Word of the Year Here it is, January. Another new year and the same old question… “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” And we all know what happens with resolutions. They are usually forgotten by mid-February and replaced with a heap of discouragement. Let’s make 2019 different. What if you replaced your resolutions with a word? Just one word to focus on all year. A word that helps you filter decisions, calm emotions and face the each day with resolve. A word that serves as a reminder of God’s truth in your life and inspires you to live your faith each and every day. A word based on God’s…

    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…

    WWW = Website | Work -at- Home | Wealth Stuffing envelopes. Cold calls. Surveys. Secret Shopper. Data entry. Virtual assistance. Poll calling. All of these titles, positions and the like use to represent the realm of work-at-home opportunities way back in the day.  I, myself, have previously tempted to venture some of these opportunities but have often found that more work was required, more time was vested, and the results were disappointing for me. For example, stuffing envelopes. I mean… just how much licking did I need to do to earn a decent living? Not to mention all the weight I’d gain. Did you know that the substance contained in the glue used to seal envelopes…
