Water, I love the way you make me feel. You quench my thirst with coolness that engulfs my body and clears obstructions from the passages that give me life. You fill me with refreshment when dryness tries to stop movement and growth. You nourish my physical being and give my locks their long silky dance. […]

The emotional strength of a woman is God’s gift to the world. She holds the tide from threats and disasters.

We should wear our crowns and walk with pride as everyday conscious acts. As we face adversity, our ancestral rods hold our backs upright as we fearlessly face down the storms on […]

We are living in a day where there is so much division causing ongoing hostility, violence, and death. Those of us who are God fearing must ask the question: “What part am I playing in the consistent divide and the division within my own community?” We all can be honest with ourselves and speak the […]

How often do you hear — or have someone imply — that “you owe me”? We are so conditioned to believe that we must repay others for the things we’ve received. The whole idea of “paying it forward” means that you too will be blessed. Even when we deprive ourselves of something, we expect a […]
