    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 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…

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

    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…

  • WWW | How Single Parents Can Turn Their Passion To Profits

    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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

    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…
