When the lights go out…

It’s nighttime, the kids are in bed; Hubby’s asleep but will probably say he was resting his eyes once he wakes up. You’re all alone, just you and Jesus. Who are you now? I ask myself this periodically, to see if I’m still aware of me. Lately, I recognized that I’ve simply been reacting toContinue reading “When the lights go out…”

On the cusp of our sixth month of marriage, I began reflecting on the question I’m most often asked “How did you know he was the one?”.

Perfect weakness (Keep going)

This morning, I began my drive to church without the energy to minister in dance or the desire. I just felt drained altogether but I decided to honor my commitment to God and do what I had to do. My prayer on the way to church was a little something like: “Lord I can’t doContinue reading “Perfect weakness (Keep going)”

Remind me who I am Lord!

Hey my love, You have probably read lots of content on how to be a wife, how to be a great friend but what about how to be… you? One of the main things I learned during my 100 days of singleness journey was who I am. It is imperative that we are able toContinue reading “Remind me who I am Lord!”
