Today is Sunday - my favorite day of the week (until about 6pm, when it really sinks in that I have to report to work the next day). Don't get me wrong, I love Saturdays. Saturdays are wonderful, but often busy with errands, chores, and other responsibilities. Sundays are supposed to be chill: church, a… Continue reading Renewed and Ready?
A pastor once told me, "You don't want to change. You like the idea of change, but the truth is, change scares you." At the time of said declaration, I'd been praying to get married for several years. I knew I wanted a husband. I wanted a family. I thought the pastor had it wrong.… Continue reading Failing to Reap
I am a fan of the Success Wiz app. I’ve mentioned it before. It’s a great app for identifying and organizing goals. It was recently brought to my attention that I wasn’t as focused as I thought I was. I didn’t know where I was heading but I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go… Continue reading Reviewing Your Goals

My pastor said once, “If you’re the smartest person in the room, you need to go to another room.” It’s true. We do what we see. Even Jesus said, “Verily I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does… Continue reading The Fear of New Levels
I have never been much of a doer. My tendencies lean more toward talking. So much so that I think myself a motivator, not a life coach because life coaches, at the very least, have a history of doing. I’m more of a pusher. I push dreams like drugs on unsuspecting people. The truth is,… Continue reading Motivating Others Instead
Christians are supposed to be believers. Believing is our thing. Our Christian walk is based on it. We believe God and it’s accounted to us as righteousness (Gen: 15:6). We don’t have to see God in order to believe that He is and that He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews… Continue reading What if Your Faith Fails?
