How can I be that seed that grew from good soil and not the seeds that fell upon unhealthy foundations?
Sunday, November 27, 2016 marks the first of four preceding Sundays leading up to Christmas. This period is called advent, derived from the Latin term “ad-venire” meaning “to come to” or “coming”, which is the coming or second coming of Christ.

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 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.

My pastor preached a wonderful sermon today! The scripture came from 1 Samuel 30:6. This was when David talked to himself and encouraged himself in the Lord. My pastor said, “Sometimes you need to take a selfie and tell YOURSELF that you’re beautiful!” So here’s my selfie, Haha!
The year 2015 has come and gone. This was the year where I became a TFA alumna, went on my first trip skydiving, traveled to new places, and overcame many of life’s obstacles. As I look back on this year, I can’t help but to be amazed at how much God has truly blessed me, kept me safe, and molded […]
Imagine this: Everything around you is falling apart. People are attacking you from the moment you wake until the moment you lay down. Bills need to be paid, deadlines need to be met, and expectations are high. But can you believe that even in the midst of all this craziness you can still experience peace? When my day at work […]
