Dear Little Black Girl…
I remember a wounded girl who didn't know her worth. One who was filled with anger because she was victimized and society said her circumstances would lead to destruction. I wipe her tears daily then straighten her up and fight for her and others like her. I fight for my daughter because even though her … Continue reading Dear Little Black Girl…
The Mother of Masterpieces
Today I was reminded that I hadn't posted in a while. I remember thinking, "someone really keeps track of that"? 🤷🏾♀️ Then I questioned why I hadn't posted lately.

How Do We Change The World?
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.

Every Moment Matters: A Reflection on 2 Minutes
For years I coached my son's basketball team but recently transitioned to the sideline to focus on just being Mama & Team Mom. I thought I was ready yet I am finding the change...the transition much more difficult than I thought. 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
