• God Does Not Give Us Obstacles, He Gives Us Tools

    GOD God does not get bored in heaven and is not going to take out a jar of battles and obstacles to place in your path. Life is not a board game and God is not rolling a pair of dice beneath the clouds and shouting ‘snake eyes’ on heartbreak or ‘easy eight’ on personal attacks.

  • Episode Two: Forget About The Draw – We Play To Win

    This podcast is for everyone who has allowed themselves in their past to settle for average…who waited for someone else to give them permission to live. Today's podcast removes all of the formality and we come to face with reality. The time has come for us to know that we were not created to simply survive….we were not created to be average…

  • Finding Your Unforgiving Purpose

    You are you, and your purpose is greater than just being a member of any flock. Your timing and route to finding your purpose should not be predetermined by those around you or by society’s rules. There is no perfect way for everyone. Your path and your timing may not make sense to everyone else, but just as they can’t breathe your breath for you, so too they shouldn’t define your life for you.

    With relationships, there are always some things we try to hide—as if they don’t exist—in what I like to call our ‘emotional closets’. We do this while telling ourselves how things will get better and hoping for the situation to change. I am here to tell you that this is a bold face lie. Every incident and emotion you have swept into the closet only stays there and rots....and with all things that decay, the stink will come out.

  • Lifting & Raising

    Before we start today’s blog post, let me put the disclaimer out early… Disclaimer: I am going to upset some women with this post. Some of you are going to get all defensive, and I know many of you are going to roll your eyes, give real side eye and suck your teeth. I knew all of this before I decided to write on this topic. But guess what… I don’t really care. It is not about you, Boo. It’s about all of us as…

  • Forgiveness is Not a Gift

    A few months back, I wrote a blog post about forgiveness and how important it was. And though I promised myself to write part two, I just couldn’t. Writing for me is very personal and even when I try not to, parts of me still get engrained into my words, which made writing on forgiveness near impossible. I understood the forgiveness theory and yes, I guess I could have tied and twisted words together and made it pretty, but that is not my style. I…
