Heal your heart, practice forgiveness

Heal your heart, practice forgiveness
Recently a dear friend betrayed me by creating all kinds of chaos, drama, and distrust within my family.  As a mom of six daughters, that’s not too difficult to do with our feelings as fragile and frayed as our skirts and dresses. A peaceful, pleasant, family occasion turned ugly with people using “fighting words” which,... Read more »

Faith and fitness, the perfect blend

Faith and fitness, the perfect blend
You can train the body, and you can do exercises for your mind. But, what I’ve found is that faith and fitness is the perfect blend.

PBS series "The African Americans" honors veterans of the past
When my mother told me to watch Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s PBS series “The African Americans,” I didn’t realize I would be learning about African American veterans. Today of all days, is a day to honor them.  But my words seem so insignificant and trivial in comparison to the risks our ancestors made in order... Read more »

Reality TV: Is it all scripted crap and nonsense?

Reality TV: Is it all scripted crap and nonsense?
As someone with zero interest in reality programs, I was elated when I saw that “Preachers of LA” was airing. I thought, for once, there will be something positive and inspiring that literally shows the heart and soul of life outside of the pulpit of anointed, powerful men of God.

Positioned to Prosper in 2014
I am planning now to be positioned to prosper in 2014. I’m not waiting until January to make a bunch of resolutions for things I can change today. I’ve spent eons of wasted time about-to-be, getting-ready-to, sho’nuff-fin’na change my life. There’s no time like the present and I’m using each and every day to get one... Read more »
