Ladies, (gentlemen too) we’re in the relay of life, not the 100 meter race. Each one of us pass the baton to the other in order to finish. We need each other from start to finish to win. If we drop the baton, we’re disqualified. Never forget that.Read More
When I say, “Go play outside,” my kids act like I’m trying to punish them. It’s actually quite comical. With all the technology they use and are exposed to, I feel so guilty, yet I’m frustrated when they aren’t on something because they’re usually bugging me to death. (yes, another real life problem; no super mom here. I’m just trying to make it out here in these Momma streets, ya’ll).
If God can use an empty shell of a building to show me that nature always finds it’s way to take over, I won’t be afraid to do the same.Read More
Let me introduce myself. I'm a 39 year old, college educated, wife and mother of two, who happens to be Black. I live on planet Earth, but I've been strategically placed on an otherwise "comically" known place called, the Planet of the Apes. Hi, I’m Linette.Read More
I want him to be EVERYTHING he’s called to be. I prayed for that. I want him ready for life. When the adult roll call of life gets to his name, I want him to be able to raise his hand and say, “Here!”Read More
I realized that life is kind of like juggling in the rain. It’s fun, it’s slippery, it takes skill, it’s hard, and you control the cycle…. Today I realized how art truly imitates life…juggling in the rain.Read More
I believe that God wants us to look around and hear Him say, "(insert your name here) who loves you?!" And He is waiting for us to say, out loud, "YOU DO, GOD!" Believe that.Read More
....David was anointed. He went from the back lot to VIP, just like that. He could’ve easily compared his space to his siblings, had FOMO (fear of missing out) and maybe missed his calling to be King.
Let’s be like David. Let’s be like David. Let's stop comparing our lives; complete what we're assigned, when and where we're assigned to do it. God will do the rest. Our purpose is patiently waiting on us to pull in and park.Read More
Being a parent is hard. I believe God uses our kids and times like these to show us just how much He goes through with us and how much He loves us. I’m so glad. It never hurts to get these reminders and encouragements. These past two weeks, I have needed them more than ever. He’s good like that.Read More
When we press upon ourselves that we can handle it on our own, when we feel like our prayers aren’t being heard and that we can’t reach out to our friends for support, we restrict our power in Christ. If we have an issue, we have to gather together with other believers, come into agreement with them and call on the name of God. When we do this, things have to change! Matthew 18:20 lets us know where two or three gather in His name, God is there in the midst.Read More

"Tell me who I have to be. To get some reciprocity. See no one loves you more than me. And no one ever will..."Read More
When I post a selfie, I am screaming from the top of my lungs, “Ayyyyeeee God!!! Marvellous are thy works! I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I don’t have to meet any standard. I meet Yours. Thank ya, Lord!”Read More
I realized my life, my family, and my relationship were kind of like maneuvering an Etch A Sketch. Words displayed are easier said than done. If I, if we could navigate the way to connect all the lines to create the words, the vision, it would be beautiful. It would actually be mind-blowing.Read More
