I’ve been watching the Rio 2016 Olympics and have been questioning—Why is it so rare that we meet people that are exactly where GOD designed them to be? Am I the only person who sees these people as the exception?
So lemme tell you guys how I played myself…. For months I have been “crushing” on my pastor’s son! I pay attention to what he’s wearing, where he is in the sanctuary, who he’s conversing with, etc. Seriously, straight middle school/high school shenanigans! To be perfectly transparent (which is the norm when it comes to … Continue reading How I played myself…
My favorite scripture is Prov. 14: 1 which reads: A wise woman builds her house, but a fool plucks it down with her hands. It was probably the first scripture I ever tried to memorize for myself (and not because "its something that every believer should know and reference").

I spend a lot of time questioning the purpose of things. Asking why more often than I should. Don’t get me … Continue reading The Necessity of Men (Intro)
June 1, 2016 Tonight is proving to be challenging. After loads of frustration in getting two inspiration sandals, I decided not to show up 30 minutes late for bible study. Changing my Wednesday night plans, I picked up 3 honey butter croissants from Cheddars, a BK Whopper Jr. and jumped back on the interstate. Locked … Continue reading Daily Debriefing: 6.1.2106
