Dispelling The Myth of “Someday”

I used to wonder when my life would start. Day after day I felt as though I was waiting for something to happen -  although I could never quite figure out what that something was. At one point I thought it was a man that I needed - perhaps a fairy tale romance would add …

Dear God… When?

Ever felt like you were watching everybody else's glory? Like you were watching God bless everyone else and you were always experiencing someone else's shining moment but it seemed like your turn would never come? Have you ever felt like you had just as much talent and just as much anointing yet day by day …

Fighting Tired

Why is it that we quit when we're almost at the end? How is that we survive the storms of the deep only to drown in the shallow waters of the shore - Just yards away from dry land? To everyone else there seems to be nothing wrong. We're past the worst. We fought a …

Here’s Why You Should Stop Reading “10 Things to Do While You Wait for a Husband” Articles

I am single. I am not exactly thrilled about it but I am not unhappy about it either. Truth be told, if I could, if I had any say, I would change it today. But I only want the one God has for me. If I wanted a man, I could make that happen. I …

My prayer

Father, I have been trying to make sense of all the things that have happened to me this previous year. It's been a painful year.

At about six weeks in, however, the sickness started to set in  - terribly. I couldn't eat anything for the first three months. My …

The Power in Surrender

  I can do all things. I truly believe that. Give me a problem, I can solve it. Give me a challenge, I overcome it. Whatever you need, I can get it done, maybe not right away - but best believe I will find a way. And you will be impressed. I pride myself on that, …

Single… And NOT Looking

No it doesn't mean I am closed off or bitter. Read on 🙂 My sister and I were having a conversation about me not dating. I turn everybody down. I don't give my number out, don't accept any and I pretty much stay indoors as best as I can. So she asked me why (as …

Pressure Builds Diamonds: Behind the Name – Identity and Purpose

I consider myself "borderline" feminist. (I believe in gender roles and the biblical order of Christ - Husband - Wife - Children, so that probably disqualifies me as a full fledged feminist.) I love women. I feel called to women... to love, to support and minister to them. I believe in sisterhood, equality, girl power …
