If we were to view marriage as a house or something to be built, then it stands to reason that, at times, repairs will have to be made…which require the use of tools. In this article, I want to present to you one tool in the marriage building toolbox that I believe is extremely important but seldom is used. In 2015, I did a book launch for my first book “Got Fruit.” That launch was...

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,...

For her…a tall caramel Frappuccino with soy milk; for myself, a venti caramel macchiato. These were the Starbucks orders of my then-girlfriend (who is now my wife) and I. I thought I knew exactly what she would order there. Fast forward a few years…her order now involves almond milk, caramel drizzles, and some other quirky thingswhile mine has changed to Grande cold-brew based drinks. I joke with her as I tell her that I feel...

“Most people don’t wait long enough on me.” –God Wow! How accurate is that sentence? We’ll admit it; A lot of us here are impatient. We hate long lines, we dread traffic, we get frustrated when God says “no,” but we really feel pained when he says “not yet!” For some reason, hearing “not yet” hurts more than hearing “no.” We think it’s because, when God says “not yet,” we know the good thing is coming,...

When everything around us seems like it’s spiraling out of control … … people often remind us of the Bible passage in which Jesus is sleeping in the storm as his disciples were, for lack of a better phrase, freaking out. We know we need to focus on something during hard times, but Jesus getting some rest while things are seemingly falling apart is normally not helpful. What should catch our attention is why Jesus is...

“For God sent me before you to preserve life.” Genesis 45:5b At times, it may be difficult to accept and trust that God is weaving a plan for your life to prosper you and bring you to an expectant end. When we get to the nuts and bolts of it, most of our difficulty comes from our lack of understanding and acceptance of God’s ways. Isaiah 61:3 tells us “He will give a crown of...

Early this week, on Monday morning, Parisians and visitors from around the globe alike watched in horror as the spire of the Notre Dame, one of the world’s most well-known cathedrals, collapsed into the building as flames engulfed its entirety. If you had seen any of the videos circulating social media or the news, you know that it looked like a scene from “The Day After Tomorrow” or “World War Z.” It was apocalyptic. Although...

After seeing Jamal Miller’s Monday Motivation segment, within The One University’s program, entitled, “It ain’t supposed to feel good …” I was deeply inspired by two key points. First, during this December 3, 2018 Facebook Live broadcast, Jamal introduced the innovative and practical concept of taking inventory to assess what we need for every area of our lives to position ourselves for God’s plans. Secondly, he discussed the importance of not falling for the enemy’s attempts...

Performance. The word alone elicits feelings of pressure. Tears flow, frustrations surface, comparison gnaws, and self-pity rises when we feel like our performance has fallen short of an expectation. We are raised with a performance-based mindset that conveys the message that “you get out what you put in.” Therein, we train ourselves to believe that the burden of success falls on our efforts. “If I study diligently, then I’ll do well on the test.” “If I...

It’s over. Two words you never want to hear or say to the person you love most. Let’s face it: Relationships are hard work, and sometimes, despite our best efforts, they just don’t work out. Cue the nights filled with tear-soaked pillowcases, sleepless nights, swollen eyes, and huge waves of emotion that feel like they are going to swallow you whole. We’ve been there (trust us!). Your “well spring of life” has sprung a leak and...
