The journey to wholeness is not for the faint of heart! Just as the great poet Langston Hughes penned, let me tell you, “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair…” BUT, I never would’ve gone as far to say it had all those issues of tacks, splinters, and such going on. I knew my life wasn’t perfect or easy, but in my eyes, it was far from being labeled “hard knock.” Needless to say,...

As millennials, it’s easy to get wrapped up in a mindset that says you must be making moves (with digital proof or it never happened) or you aren’t doing anything with your life. Culture has implemented an unwritten rule: That we must “have a life,” primarily in our single season, and the way by which to have a life is to live according to the world. If we went by all the suggestions thrown at...

Women … No matter the culture, we have had our share of battles when it comes to “defining” what our position, role, title, and even character should or should not be. Societal norms have attempted to place labels and limits upon our shoulders. We are defined by whether we are in the home, or minimized in sectors of business, government, and even religion. Women are often labeled as too emotional, yet a woman is criticized...

Scrolling through the explore page on Instagram … It becomes very apparent that the world places OUTWARD BEAUTY and FAME upon a pedestal. The emphasis on the exterior is at an all-time high in our society. The focus for young girls and grown women alike has become centered on being an ideal image — the standard of which is set by the world. Too often, their self-worth is found solely in the clothes they rock, the car they drive, the length...

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies...” Proverbs 31:10 The virtuous woman — or the Proverbs 31 woman — is one of the most talked about and admired women of the Bible. She goes without a name but she is the woman that ladies desire to be like and men desire to find. She is the epitome of grace and virtue, a very rare treasure, a blessing to the...

Do you consider yourself to be a good man or a GODLY man? Take a moment (and be honest with yourself) as you take a deep look into your life and your relationships. Have you been settling for just a good job? Have you been asking yourself, “am I good enough?” Have you been experiencing just good — or even bad — relationships lately? Have you been doing only the minimum of what is required of...

We are going to go ahead and say it: We get it. We totally and completely understand that the temptation to put life on “pause” until you find the perfect person and drift off into dreamy relationship land is way too real. Everyone is tempted about 15 (million) times during their single lives to roll over and give up on life. But we have a crazy counter-cultural thought; we actually think that life starts long...

As women, we take on the burden of being everything to everyone. We wear multiple hats — occasionally one at a time, but more often, two or three at once. We give and give and give of ourselves to ensure that the people around us are taken care of, loved on, nurtured, comforted, encouraged, provided for, and appreciated. As mothers, we bend over backwards to chauffeur our children to school and practices, work on homework,...

The world we live in has never been as enticing, innovative, and fast-paced as we know it now. Everything whirls around us in fast-forward motion: The updates, progress, and speed of information all blur our understanding of “right now” — and are changing our ideas about the future. In this age of the world, those of us who seek to be successful are tasked with not only keeping up with the pace, but transforming and...

After all those broken relationships, and all that betrayal committed by the men I once loved, I never thought the love I desired was a reality.  After all, love was for people who believed in fairy tales … right?  As little girls, we are nurtured by books and movies that tell stories about women who either find their knights in shining armor or are maidens in distress, waiting to be rescued by a prince. These...
