Live! Live Now!!

This week, I had (and still experiencing) an in your face reminder of how fragile life is. We literally can’t take anything or anyone for granted. I’ve always tried to encourage people to not wait until xyz before they live out the very specific purpose God placed in them.... stop waiting till you get enough... Continue Reading →

“Your Skin is too Dark”

#whatblackpanthermeanstome Our skin may be dark but our skin is lovely... Ladies, your lips may be full, and your hair might be tightly curled, but your presence can make a man freeze like an antelope in headlights. Your quiet strength can calm the rage of a rhinoceros. To my dark skin brothers & sisters (regardless... Continue Reading →

Know Your Body

Before I share this long story, please know that I am not bashing on doctors or prescription medicine.... Most people don't know, but for the past 14-15 years, I've struggled with a condition that had me in chronic pain. There were times in high school when I was hospitalized. Doctors did every test possible &... Continue Reading →

Joy in Sorrow

2016 taught me some trying & painful lessons. In all that, I also learned that joy can coexist with sorrow & suffering. Joy doesn't come from the absence of sorrow, but from the presence of God. Joy is what provides hope in the midst of the storm. The Joy of the Lord is & has... Continue Reading →

A New Decade

Today marks a new decade for me!🎈🎂 And yes, I'm turning 30 not 40 (it doesn't help that I hang out with people born in the 70s lol). Before I go deep on y'all, don't worry, I'm still the same Jamba Juice & pizza loving, accent imitating, awkward noise making, dancing & roller coaster loving... Continue Reading →
