#HerStory | Aborting the Mission

how many people have you allowed to miss their calling because you chose to ignore that feeling that you have? That feeling that you have is your purpose and mission that God has called you to complete. And what is crazy, not really, is that your purpose is connected to someone else’s purpose! Do you hear what I just said?! When you have a purpose and calling on your life, you are also important to others in their purpose and calling in their life!!!!!!

Open Letter to my Unborn Child

Sometimes God has a way of making things better even when it doesn’t make sense. God saved you. He knew that the world wasn’t the place for you right now. Daddy was not ready for you pumpkin and mama is so sorry for being so selfish in the beginning and choosing to entertain negativity rather than your wellbeing. So quickly you came and so quickly you left.

HER JOURNEY: WHEN HIS PLAN, IS BETTER THAN YOURS

I tried everything. Building a team. Reciting daily affirmations. Changing my workspace. New Business Strategy. Finding my Niche. Consulted with a Coach. And still, I sucked as a business owner and my business was stagnant. Money was coming in but that wasn’t enough for me. So, I did what I neglected to do for a minute – go to the source, the CEO of the business, God.

Young, Black & Depressed

There’s a stigma that surrounds mental health in the Black community. We rarely speak of it and when we do its often in hushed whispers. We’re told to pray or suck it up or get over it. But no one ever tells their grandma to pray away her breast caner and not go see a doctor. No one tells their granddaddy to suck up his diabetes. No one yells for their mama to get over her sickle cell. So why in the hell am I expected to magically erase my depression?

Trusting God's Process

When you feel like you don't have a friend, God is a friend to the friendless, God is hope for the hopeless, God is faithful to the faithless. , when you think there is no way God makes a way.  Just TRUST THE PROCESS!!!! You will hit roadblocks but let God be your back up, your AAA, your roadside assistance, your GPS and your roadmap to help you stay on the right path to your GREATER! 

#REPOSTED | 10 SIGNS You Can Trust God.

Trust is one of the most important parts of a relationship – without it, it’s really difficult for things to actually work. But that doesn’t mean that it’s easy to develop complete trust in a person. In fact, it’s the opposite of easy… it’s really freakin’ hard, especially if you’ve been hurt and/or betrayed in the past.

What's Love Got to Do with With It?!

Well, according to Tina Turner it’s a ‘sweet old fashioned notion’. But love is so much more than that. Love is timeless. It never goes out of style. In light of February being the month of “love”, its only right that this month we talk about LOVE! What pops into your mind when you think about love? Your spouse? Your parents? Your friends?

ICYMI: Death to the Monster

As we sit and watch the world around us, there is an ugly monster that has been rearing its head out of the shadows and that monster is discouragement. Yes, DISCOURAGEMENT! If the enemy can discourage you from reaching out for help when you feel that tightening in your chest from loneliness, or anxiety or fear…he’s got you! You see discouragement is the enemy’s most widely used tool in his tool box!!  So how do we put the enemy in his place? 

Masking the Pain: Living with Fibromyalgia

I've experienced pain in my life before but never this extreme. Some days I wake up and I can’t even move  to get out of my bed. Other days I just stay in bed all day because my entire body hurts so badly and the only comfort is being balled up. Along with this comes many sleepless nights. Some weeks I don’t sleep for nights at a time because I can’t get comfortable and the touch of the sheets on my skin hurt. 

How God Healed a Daughter's Heart

I’ve dealt with loneliness, isolation, rejection and the idea that I wasn’t good enough. It was important that I took the time to determine where my feelings and emotions originated. I was able to connect it to my childhood without my father. This was a result of me not meeting my father until two months shy of my 16th birthday...

I Don't LIKE Her!

...Leaving the relationship didn’t heal the self-hatred and I realized that when it resurfaced in my next relationship. One night I found myself going through my next boyfriends phone and unfollowing someone beautiful on his facebook and when he asked why I replied with, "I just don’t like her."

POWER of Preparation

Many of us have dreams and goals that we are working hard to achieve and make them come to fruition. Many times we focus on the start and finish and try to take time to enjoy the process, which is great. BUT how have you prepared before you started? Planning is great but preparation is even better.
