Years ago, after just becoming a mother, I had a friendly debate/conversation about life and how in life, a woman (people - but, I think this is mostly women) can become consumed with success or the fear of not being enough in every season. You...

Have you felt like you did not belong or were not worthy of sitting at the table you’ve been asked to join? I asked my husband, “What makes me qualified for this?” And he said the most revelatory thing to me; he said, “the invite.” ...

Let me ask you something. Are you getting in the way of what God is doing by trying to make something happen versus putting it in His hands? Would you know if you did? Honestly, sometimes I don’t. There is a verse in James that I am sure that...

As we muster up the momentum to finish or begin our goals for this year, I would like to ask you a question: In this fourth quarter, will you practice busyness or business?...

All of the death and awful things happening is requiring much of us. It requires us to mentally process such heavy stuff while also being required to show up in relationships, in jobs, as parents, home-school teachers, and caretakers – and much, much more. So,...

Last week my son found out that he was going to become the line leader in class. It soon became apparent that he did not know which day he’d be the line leader because he would return home every day to tell me that “today...

How are you? Today, I want to talk to you about stress. It is something that we are all currently dealing with in some shape, figure, or form, at this very moment. Most of us equate stress to pressure, pressure, or tension exerted on our physical and emotional...

How are you? I hope your loved ones and yourselves are safe and healthy. If you live in South Texas or Louisiana like me, then you have probably been preparing for imminent hurricanes all week. As of late, my prayers haven’t just been about protecting our state...

How are you feeling now that we have made it six months into the pandemic? A lot of us went into this whole thing excited to break free from our obligations and commitments for a minute. In the beginning, we were concerned and unsure, but positive...

must admit, this has been a rough week! It has been full of multiple work deadlines, momma duties, and just the ordinary minutiae of life. Not only has my week been demanding, but I have also been having weird dreams. Check it! In one of the dreams,...

In the midst of chaos and long days, where my concept of a work-life balance continuously blurs the lines, my son has been struggling to understand when” mommy can play” and when “mommy can’t play.”  Pre-pandemic, it was easier to separate my family time and...

This pandemic came in like a wrecking ball and exposed significant gaps in every system and structure that is known to humankind. It has exposed gaps in our educational systems. It has exposed gaps in our economic systems It has even exposed gaps in technology. And not just...

Einstein suggests, "we cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that we used to create them." This holds true, especially during times of crisis. In fact, in a Minister Myles Munroe suggested that "experience is useless during a crisis." At first thought,...

While the idea of "outside" and January might seem like it was just yesterday, the reality is that the half-year mark has passed, and we're closer to the end of the year than we are to the beginning. The goals we had at the beginning...

As a black woman to a black husband and a black mother to a black son, I am not ok right now! In just the month of May, we have had to grieve the murders of: Ahmaud Arbery Breona Taylor and George Floyd and also watch the falsified police call...

This week has been quite a doozy for me. In between multiple work deliverables and late-night, catch-up sessions, I celebrated seven years of marriage and had a loved one to die. The tape that keeps replaying in my head is layered with thoughts about the fragility of...

I have been thinking about last week's letter, and how we talked about how the things that we consume, affect our faith. I was reminded of the magnificent story of Moses in a book I am reading (hello, audible!) and that got me to thinking...

Did you gain the #QUARANTINE15, yet? Or are you on your way? Since we are stressed and self-isolating, I wanted to talk a bit about your diet during this time. Please don’t run. Could you hear me out?...

Have you ever been in a hard season of life and someone told you, to “shake it off” or “it’s not that bad,” or possibly, “Girl, God’s got your back!”? And while that’s true, it probably wasn’t what you needed to hear right in that...

We all know the story of Easter. We know what amazing thing Jesus did for us. He died on the cross for our sins (so that we could live). He was buried and then rose again on the third day (so that we would have the power to...

You good? I’ve seen a lot of posts lately about grief and anxiety as we navigate the unknown. The grief of your old, busy lives. The worry and anxiety over sick loved ones, the balance of work and homeschool, and the loss of wages and experiences. I know...

Chileeeeee……….I went to the Sarah Jakes Roberts’ “ Refuse to Lose” Tour in New Orleans on Tuesday night and it was incredible! When Sarah spoke, she discussed the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth. The anchor scripture for the evening was ‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:39-45‬: “At that time Mary got ready...

When I was little girl, I grew up in a Baptist church and on Sunday mornings I would often hear the old deacons pray this prayer from the moaning/morning/mourning bench. “When I woke up early this morning, welllllllllll; I was clothed in my right mind, wellllllllllll; When I...
