Last night, my daughter and I were snuggled in bed (yes, she was in my bed🤷🏾♀️) reading the Bible. The room was dark and there was only the light from the Bible App lighting our faces. She glanced over at me and said "Mommy, you are beautiful. You are beautiful with make-up and beautiful without … Continue reading How Do We Change The World?
Parenting: Where’s The Manual?
There's no manual when it comes to parenting. I believe most of us do the best we know to do based off life experiences coupled with what we've learned. However, I must admit that somewhere along the way things have went wrong. Unfortunately, I way to often, hear parents taking up for their kids when … Continue reading Parenting: Where’s The Manual?
Yesterday was my sister's birthday. The last time I was able to sing Happy Birthday to her was 1999. Losing her was the most difficult experience of my life. In an instant, our lives were changed forever. I went through some dark moments. Though I was hurt from the depth of my soul, God still … Continue reading Life Lessons….
I Am Beautifully Made
https://youtu.be/80s7evMjReI This weekend was as busy as every other weekend but I had a few hours of uninterrupted time. It was during that time that I came across this song.

I wondered if Saturday's event had stirred up old emotions but it hadn't. After I wrote my blog yesterday, I was okay because I shared my … Continue reading God’s Plans

My track record was pretty good as a coach so watching & having no … Continue reading Every Moment Matters: A Reflection on 2 Minutes
A Life Well Lived
Two days ago I watched my friend lay her husband to rest. At our age, mid 40s, who's prepared to bury their husband? No one! When tragedy strikes it is a reminder that life is precious and that we cannot take one moment for granted. When tragedy strikes and takes out one of the kindest, … Continue reading A Life Well Lived
Divine Discomfort, Pt. 2
When I wrote the 1st blog about Divine Discomfort, I didn't realize that it was only the beginning of my discomfort. Lately, I have been under attack: my name and my character. You know, the kind of things that could potentially affect people's perception of who I am. I can remember sitting in my office … Continue reading Divine Discomfort, Pt. 2
