I’m a teacher! Why and how I switched careers in my later thirties :)

When God Redirects! It all started with some discontent. Ain't nothing like a lil holy discontent to mess up your life 🙂 . Allow me to take you back a bit. I quit college in 2006 because I was pregnant and single and I just couldn't manage the tragedy that was now my life. My …

I’m A Prophet… Now what? From revelation to acceptance.

I know, I know. I can hardly even admit it to myself sometimes. I can hear y'all saying, "well how she went from being a journalist to a prophet..." Same thing I ask myself. I'm a teacher now too... But hear me out. I'd stopped blogging because I was getting weary and confused. I graduated …

A story of Courage in Affliction

I've been neglecting the blog. Although I'm sure no one really noticed. Word around journalism town is that blogging is on the decline. It's all about "the video" now they say: Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Persicope (maybe?) and YouTube. That may be so. Unfortunately, God gave me a desire and a passion to write and …

To 20-year-old me: “I saw the end.”

  Dear sweet broken-hearted girl, You are so smart and talented and brave. And above all else you are beautiful. You are a beautiful soul. No one has ever told you that. But if they did, you probably wouldn't accept it. You spend all your days avoiding mirrors just tearing yourself apart. Your not as petite, …

A Prophetic Word For 2017

As we go into the new year I thought I'd share with you a revelation I received during my quiet time with the Lord a few mornings ago. I wanted God to show me what 2017 would bring. While, 2016 was a good year, there are some things on my "prayer list" still left unchecked. …

On Christian Dating and the Black Woman. (Why do you have so little faith?)

I like to read other Christian blogs especially by young black women, because for one I feel like there is so few of us and also I like the different perspectives. But I just read one that made me upset! I will not link the blog, nor will I reference it because I don't believe …

Why Can’t I Find A Good Man? – Confronting Brokenness and Wrong Thinking.

I usually don't like to talk much about relationships - romantic relationships to be exact.  I'm single and quite enjoying my season so I try to focus on learning to be present and thankful, while maximizing where God has me. I am quite enjoying the gift of Keciah. I have peace. I have joy. But all around …

God, Is That You? (Hearing God pt. III)

Part III - Ways In Which God Speaks I'm way overdue. I know. I've been procrastinating, finishing college (yay!) job hunting, prepping for graduation and the works. Let's just say the past month has been quite the roller coaster ride (in a good way) and I've been enjoying every minute of it. So didn't nobody …

Seasons Change

As we witness nature transition so beautifully and effortlessly from fall to winter… We should all take a lesson from the trees.

SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church's website} The Tree in its SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church’s website)

I’ve been trying to understand where my fairly recent obsession with landscape photography came from.

I grew up in the country in a small town right by the ocean. I spent my childhood playing in the bushes, making mud pies and climbing trees. Most of my mornings were spent by the ocean, with my grandmother, watching the dawn break. (I sometimes look at my son playing video games or tapping away at his tablet and feel a tinge of guilt – my childhood was, by far, way more enriching than his – of course he’ll never think so 🙂 ).

Needless to say, I find my solace in nature. And so it’s not unnatural that I should want to capture it. I’ve almost exhausted what’s left of the fall foliage, now I find myself looking forward to winter…
