As I reflect on my past experiences and reflect on my present state, I can’t help but think about how good God has been to me and how He’s shielded me from various things and pulled me through tough circumstances. I’ve been through a lot and if I looked like what I’ve been through I would look like a hot […]
I got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where?! Down in my heart today!
With so many issues arising in our society, many fail to realize, or even acknowledge, what's lacking. I recently visited the Civil Rights Museum in Atlanta, Georgia and entered the Dr. King exhibit. One of his handwritten sermons focused on agape love. He stated that agape love is needed to overcome evil. Even though he wrote that years ago, his sermon still holds true today. Love is the perfect prescription for society.
#BlackLivesMatter. #AllLivesMatter. #BlueLivesMatter. These are all the variations of hashtags that have engulfed the internet within the past few days. #BlackLivesMatter surfaced roughly 3 years ago after the verdict was read on the Trayvon Martin case. It began as a simple hashtag but grew into a movement. #AllLivesMatter surfaced in response to #BlackLivesMatter to imply that Black lives are not […]
mo·tion /mōSH(ə)n/ (noun)- the act or process of moving or being moved. Do you ever just go through the motions of life? Brushing your teeth, turning off the alarm clock, driving a vehicle…all are motions that most of us don’t ever think about doing. I mean, think about it.

To be honest, I allowed other things and situations to distract me from my relationship with Christ. I was doubtful concerning certain decisions I made and I worried about the unknown concerning my job, my place of residence, and other life aspects. While I continued to read my Bible and pray daily, I failed to pray about these situations and […]
Within the last days of the Daniel Plan, I found myself going through a storm, as highlighted in “Test…Anxiety?“. Looking back at that rough period, March 19-27, 2015 to be exact, I was at a crossroads concerning certain directions I should take within my life and I was a bit overwhelmed, which took a hit on my physical well being. […]
Boy! A lot has happened since my last post on the enjoyment of life, which is the reason why I haven’t posted anything since then. I’m currently on Day 34 of the Daniel Plan and I have been strengthened physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I’ve built spiritual muscle and felt my relationship with God grow closer. But just when I began […]
As you may or may not know, I am currently a second grade ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, which mean that I am certified to teach English Language Learners (ELLs). This year, my classroom is populated with children who have recently entered the United States within the past year or so. So…this morning, my students were tasked with […]
It’s been 3 days since I started the Daniel Plan and let me tell you, I had a rough start. It has a lot to do with my preparedness. I waited until today, Saturday, to go to the groceries and properly stock my fridge and pantry with appropriate items and I have yet to take part in any form of workout. I also felt a cold […]
