I Have Seen the Mountain Top

“The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you,” Genesis 12:1 In November 2020, I had the opportunity to visit friends in San Francisco. Although chilly on most days, the view of the sunrise over the Golden Gate Bridge was breathtaking, […]


Faith > Fear

As I head back to the States, reflecting on this particular excursion while in 🇬🇭 I’m reminded that Faith >Fear, will always lead you towards experiencing the life you want for yourself. I don’t think I’ve ever prayed so hard as much as I did walking across the 9 bridges. (I promise you, God was probably like, […]


Are you on the right path?

Can you believe there are only 164 days left in 2019? Time definitely doesn’t wait for anyone, but sheesh… I was talking to a friend the other day about what this last quarter in 2019 looks like for me.  She started to tell me about how she needed to get focused and asked me how […]

An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned […]


When Love Leaves You Bankrupt

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flows the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23 A life lesson in love that I learned at high emotional costs is to choose wisely who you give your heart to. When I started blogging it was just a form of expressive therapy for me; however, after receiving […]


Love and Loyalty

People will drain you with no intentions of filling you back up…don’t let them. The last relationship I had nearly broke me and left me with no desire to fall in love anytime soon.  It really made me question myself and God.  Like, God, “how could you allow me to experience this magnitude of pain?”  […]
