God has called us all to be students of his Word. Unfortunately, we see in the church that zeal and passion for God’s Word is depreciating — people are not applying the Word of God to their lives and walking in it. We believe that God desires for all of us to not just be hearers of his Word, but diligent seekers and powerful demonstrators of it. God’s Word is applicable to both men and...

It was July 27, 2013 at around 6:13pm that I said, “I do” to my beyond beautiful, supernaturally given gift, Natasha Ann Miller. As my friends would say, I had crossed over into the #goodlife! Now being married six months (at the time this was originally written) I can freshly talk from the place of recognizing the things I wish I would have learned before I got married. So, if I had the opportunity to...

A popular pastor that I follow quotes that sex can be considered three things: “gross, god, or a gift.” I believe this to be very true in our day, due to how sex outside of marriage is overrated — and underrated within the context of marriage. It is “gross” to those that have been taught their entire life that sex is bad and will cause people to look at you differently. For some, it can...

If you are like me, a hopeless romantic, then you have already thought of or written out exactly how you want to meet your future spouse. Mine was that I would be at the grocery store and turn on isle 3 to get some pasta sauce and she would also be on the same isle looking for noodles. Our buggies would collide causing her to almost fall down, but I would catch her causing our...

  Children are a true blessing from the Lord, and bring so much joy to your lives. But, the process by which they come into the World is nothing short of God’s grace and mercy. The journey of pregnancy is different for every expecting mom, and having the support of family and friends means the World to them. We learned so much during our first pregnancy that our second one has gone by so quickly...

The great Nelson Mandela stated in one of his most noteworthy quotes, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. Just because a person has the capacity to love doesn’t mean they have...

  When you said, “I Do” to your spouse on your wedding day you were making a commitment like none other. A commitment to love, cherish, and honor one another through the good, bad, and ugly as long as you both shall live. No matter how long or fast it took you to get to that altar all that mattered in that moment was your future together.   The first year of marriage is what...

The year was 1992 in a small town called, Albany, GA. It was there that I had my first record of experiencing what I concluded at the time was love. Until, she moved and we no longer were in the same daycare together due to her family moving away. Yes, I said, “Daycare”. It was a real life example of the young and the playful. From then I’ve always had a fascination with this thing...

People and relationships are a type of commodity for this life that will never be fully understood. The beginning of your existence came from someone (Yo Mama) having the courage to push you out and then another person (The Doctor) having the intelligence to pull you out to prepare you for the life on this planet. One of the most ironic statements I’ve heard and I know you’ve heard it too is, “I don’t need...

I am so proud of you. I don’t care about your past or even your last night, I simply care about your tomorrow. Abstaining from sex until marriage is one of the best ways to guard your heart and mind from attaching to someone before its appropriate time. A man can put a condom on to protect you from an STD or pregnancy, but there is nothing to protect your heart, which is just as...
