He Came To Set the Captive Free

Twenty-three days ago three young women were freed.  They had been held captive for over a decade and the sad thing is they were held hostage a mere 3 miles from their abducted locations. A mere 1 mile from my current residence in Cleveland, OH. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry & Gina DeJesus had their lives… Continue reading He Came To Set the Captive Free

When Being Single Teaches You How Amazing You Are

I never dreamt I’d be single this long.  In fact, I was engaged with the intention of being married by the tender age of 22. Now I’m 30. I’ve had a good run at the single life.   I’ve discovered there is really more to life than having a relationship (who would have thought?).  I wouldn’t… Continue reading When Being Single Teaches You How Amazing You Are

Walking Through Open Doors; Taking Dreams Down Off High Shelves

This journey in my career has been just that.  A JOURNEY.  I’ve been trekking upon the twists and turns of winding roads for the last 7 years with my faithful companion Jesus.  This was the path He had chosen for me, not one I had imagined for myself.  Early on in our journey I faced… Continue reading Walking Through Open Doors; Taking Dreams Down Off High Shelves

Meeting God in the Bathroom

Today I took a much needed break.  I stopped my diligent attempt at being productive, left my cube and cried in the public bathroom stall.  As the tears began to flow I tried to stop them but gave up and released the anguish from inside.  Along with my tears was every negative emotion I had… Continue reading Meeting God in the Bathroom

Life as a Type A

I guess as you get older you become more self-aware, more reflective, more…boring.  LOL.  At 30, I’m learning a lot about myself just by walking with Jesus and immersing myself in the community He’s surrounded me with. Iron sharpens iron and all that…But apparently there are people in the secular arena who made it their… Continue reading Life as a Type A

Friendship: Betrayal, Forgiveness & Reconciliation

This weekend I attended a doctoral graduation ceremony out of state.  The car ride was 6 hours long and my mom and I faced an additional 1 1/2 hour delay due to a four-car accident.  Rumor had it there was a semi involved. Even though I didn’t see the accident I know it had to… Continue reading Friendship: Betrayal, Forgiveness & Reconciliation

The Party

I entered the room transformed.  My previous attire consisting of sneakers, loose workout pants and an equally loose off the shoulder top were replaced by black skinny jeans, glittery shoes and the birthday girl’s personalized shirts.  I had gotten rid of that cute black hat that was hiding the untidiness on my head and had… Continue reading The Party

5 Reasons I love Spring!
