My lips have uttered countless prayers to God. Prayers for finances, my career, my relationships, for direction, and much more. Some He’d answer, and some He has yet to, but eventually will. But the one prayer God always answers, (quick too), is the prayer for patience. Have mercy…continue reading
My lips have uttered countless prayers to God. Prayers for finances, my career, my relationships, for direction, and much more. Some He’d answer, and some He has yet to, but eventually will. But the one prayer God always answers, (quick too), is the prayer for patience. Have mercy…
It was a typical day at the office. I was sitting at my desk when I overheard a comment from one coworker to the next about God. That comment turned into a full blown argument. Coworker A was demeaning God, and co worker B was defending Him. Not one to let anyone question her God, she put on her armor, ready to fight. Others passing by stopped to add their 2 cents. Me? I…
I was in my classroom one day and I was preparing myself to go to lunch when a song began to ring over my spirit. It was called “Heart Courageous.” As it was ringing in my ears I started singing the chorus: “We’re marching on with heart courageous,
we’ll follow anywhere you want us to, and should you lead us where the battle rages

Most of my life as a child was spent at a church service of some sort. Church Monday night (Bible Study), church Wednesday night (Youth Service), church Friday night( Prayer Meeting), church Saturday (Choir Rehearsal), church Sunday morning (morning service), church Sunday evening (evening service), and church Sunday night (visiting other churches). Now that I am an adult, I still manage to make more than one service throughout the week. This probably seems like a lot, and sometimes it is, but I find it necessary.
By: Lady M. If you’re ever going to place a bet on something, you better be pretty sure that you’re on the mark. Especially when there’s money, or a human life involved. We all know God doesn’t gamble. He doesn’t need to. But during one of my low moments where I was ready to throw […]
“While we are building our careers, our families, our churches, our bodies, let’s not forget to build our CHARACTER. For, good character is what sets us apart.” -
I posted this as a status on my personal Facebook page around the summer of 2012.
In the privacy of my bedroom I cried out “Overflow, Lord! Overflow, Jesus! I NEED more! So much more! Now!” I paused blowing my nose and wiping away tears. Juanita Bynum’s powerful rendition of Overflow permeated the morning air. But this time, I mouthed the words along with her, “thank you, Jesus, for your overflow; thank you for the victory in my circumstances; hallelujah, thank ya! Thank ya! Thank ya!”
There’s more to movies than mere entertainment. As a movie lover, I find myself looking beyond basic humor and a gorgeous cast to really understand the message the director wants to convey. I found these three films to be particularly insightful to relationships, especially that of a marriage. So whether you’re single, dating, or married perhaps there is something you can take from these
What’s more comfortable than a maxi dress on a hot summer day? Sure it may have a few rivals, but the mean maxi trumps them all!
Born in Philadelphia, lived in Japan, raised in Maryland, and now resides in Brooklyn. His Father was a drummer and his mother directed the choir. So it’s no surprise that Brandon Camphor has music running through his veins. So much so that he won his first national song competition at the age of 10, has helped to launch three college tours, and was leading praise and worship for a congregation of 2,000 plus, at age 14. Brandon Camphor is leaving his mark in music wherever he goes and he is just getting started.
I found the formula for success. No really, I did! If you believe everything that the Bible says, then you will agree with me that this truth is the way to go if you want to be successful.
Looking through my mailbox one day, I saw that I received yet another promotional offer for a magazine subscription. The deal seemed reasonable so I figured I’d oblige. As I opened the mail, inside was a pamphlet with snippets of topics that each issue would contain, one of them being “What I Know for Sure.” I read on to find 6 things Ms. O knew for sure, and being the thinker that I am, it prompted me to ask myself the same question. I was stumped.
Marriage. Wedding. Matrimony. Nuptials. Union. These words often terrify even the strongest men and women. On one hand you have the privilege of spending the rest of your life (til death do you part) with the one person who loves, understands, and is willing to sacrifice for you more than anyone else.
Have you ever experienced searching for something only to find out that it was in your possession all along? Flipping things upside down, turning things inside out, trying to find what you didn’t know you already had.
There’s nothing new under the sun. Prints, Patterns, and Peplum are all oldies but goodies that have simultaneously made their way back onto the fashion scene, front and center. And thank God they did! This summer, the fabulousness continues with these trends upping the ante in closets everywhere. Peplum is sexy, but cool. Patterns and […]
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
By: Shenelle Wallace “My hair is bright red, but I love the Lord.” That was the introduction 19 year old Alexis Spight from Buffalo NY, gave the congregation at the Potter’s House Ministries before performing. Far from your average preacher’s kid, she is unique in her own right and makes no apologies for it. As […]
Black and White Over the past year, we’ve seen a display of bright colors all over the sidewalk and catwalk. But good ole black and white still has its flair and is here to stay. Check out a few fashion pieces in black and white below.
Bear with me as I bare my soul.
I wish I could be cool, like the in-crowd; do whatever, say whatever, go wherever.
I wish it was okay to fib, not for selfish gain, but as to not hurt someone for my telling the truth.
There is a myth that “good men are hard to find” but it is definitely not true. Getting married is actually pretty easy, it’s staying married that appears to be the challenge.
Most women I know want to one day be happily wed. Young old, middle-aged; we dream about this type of stuff (guilty)!
Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24).
Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.
