Plan on Making a Big Faith Move? READ THIS.

October 30, 2017

In October of 2014, my husband and I packed up our things from Tallahassee, Florida, and we moved to the great city of Atlanta. We were confident that the Lord led us here and we were excited to “step out in faith”. I had all these expectations but I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. The glamorized “faith move” seemed to give me the gratification of feeling super-spiritual. Then, the real tests came when all the pomp and…

Are You Listening to God’s Voice?

October 20, 2017

For years, some of you have been asking, pleading, and searching for the voice of God. You did all that you could to draw near to Him. You followed the steps that this preacher and that preacher recommended. You read your bible, made sure you had quiet time early in the morning, cut off unhealthy relationships and more! When you first began hearing God speak, you were so excited. You couldn’t get enough of hearing His voice and would not…

Spiders in Your Ear: Tormenting Spirits

July 22, 2017

Could it be that your life is in a confusing state, not because God isn’t speaking to you, but, because demons are? From the bible we know that God is not a God of confusion (1 Corinthians 12:33)… yet a lot of us are going around confused, angry, jealous, and so on because we supposedly “Heard God say”. We must be cautious before proclaiming that God said anything, especially when these things don’t inherently bring Him glory or stand in…

My Wedding Story!!

April 4, 2017

Many girls grow up dreaming of their perfect wedding fairytale. We are taught to desire the perfect dress, flower arrangements, and decor. We envision the moment where we walk down the isle with all eyes on us. Our groom is foooineeee, 6 foot, with everything marked off our list of what we want in a man. The thing is, although there is nothing wrong with having your wedding turn out the exact way you dream, this is not the reality for…

Beware of The Modern Day Occult!

February 16, 2017

Hey everyone! I just wanted to make this post to inform you guys of different things I see in the media and fashion industry that I want you to beware of.

Just to give you a general idea, partaking in activities such as: “checking your horoscope”, playing with magic, Ouija boards, going to…

February 9, 2017

Hey Everyone! I have some exciting news to share!!! Since 2015 it’s been my dream to have a National Book Tour but 2016 went by and it still didn’t happen. Then at the end of 2016, I got the vision of “The Writers Retreat” and I shut down my other business to pour into this new baby. The Writers Retreat is a 3-4 day event where christian writers of all genres can come together to relax, unplug, get inspired and…

Your Favorite Preacher Can’t Save You!

December 24, 2016

Hear me out. At one point in my life, I attributed my salvation as credit to my favorite preacher. When someone would ask to hear my testimony… you would hear the name of my favorite preacher, more than you heard the name of Jesus. Phrases like, “I was inspired by ‘so and so’…” or “Hearing so and so’s story, changed my life…” showed the idolatry that was deeply rooted in my heart. Don’t get me wrong, it’s OK to appreciate the…

How to Know When You’re Ready to Walk in Your Calling

September 5, 2016

“But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.” – Jeremiah 1:7 This was me. “God I’m not ready,” “God I’m too young,” “God I’m not experienced,” “God I need a mentor,” “God I don’t have the money,” “I need to read more books,” “God, I’m scared!” I gave God every excuse in the book as to why I wasn’t qualified…

Why HER Success Won’t Diminish Yours!

August 30, 2016

Sister, your willingness or unwillingness to help other believers succeed says a lot about your faith in God or lack thereof. Be honest with yourself… do you cringe when your sister in Christ gets the promotion you wanted, engaged, pregnant, launches a new product, etc.? Or are you truly and genuinely happy for them without any ounce of resentment or jealousy? The world teaches us to guard our “success” and not to share it with anyone… hide our failures and pretend…

Undercover Homosexual Needing Deliverance!

November 17, 2014

I get it. It’s something that you struggle with and it’s a secret. Everyone from your church would look at you with the side eye if you “came out of the closet” and you feel like more people would judge you rather than sit down with you and help you get through this. I was there. I was the undercover homosexual who went to church. When I finally decided to share my testimony for the first time in my book,…

The Truth about Worrying

February 21, 2014

Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the things of the world and allow worrisome thoughts to invade our minds. Many times I’ve felt like I’ve missed the mark. I feared not having enough strength to accomplish my worldly goals and I had absolutely no peace. I had to realize that God does not intend or desire for me to live a life of worry. As a child of the King, who has been made righteous through Christ, God…

The Top 5 Worst Things to Do During Worship!

December 20, 2013

1. Going to Sleep This is by far one of the things I struggle with the most concerning worship and my quiet time. Staying awake is not easy for me because I spend time with God first thing in the morning, after helping my husband off to work. That works out to be around 6:15 – 6:30 a.m. every day. Which I believe is MAD early, but I know that God is calling me to be disciplined and do it…

Struggling with Perversion and Lustful Thoughts

November 4, 2013

So lets be real.  This is a struggle that a lot of people have but it’s rarely talked about. I personally struggled with this and I know how frustrating it can be to be pursuing purity and a relationship with God while constantly being thrown off by lustful thoughts. Now many times, lustful thoughts are a result of our own environments. The music we listen to, the things we watch, the conversations we have, all have the potential to plant…

Secret Sins and The Power Behind Closed Doors!

August 20, 2012

It’s so easy for us to judge someone from the outside. It’s so easy to say, “she’s so holy” or he’s so this and he’s so that. It’s so easy to get caught up on what everyone else is doing and fail to take time to step back and focus on the things that we’re struggling with when it comes to our walk with God. We spend so much time judging one another and looking at what everyone else is…

True Worship & Getting Closer to God

July 19, 2012

True worship is a lifestyle, not an experience. Sometimes when we think of “worship” a lot of us worry and obsess about having the right songs, atmosphere, etc. But what about having the right life? A righteous life, that is, one that glorifies God in every way. Regarding our righteousness, the bible says that: “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Cor.…

Considering Dating? Beware of Soul Ties! My Experience

March 29, 2012

I’ve had a soul tie. That means, my soul was spiritually intertwined with someone. I had a very close relationship with that person for about 5 years and we went through the phases: “friends”, “best friends”, “dating”, and even “engagement”. I did not have to have sex to form my soul tie but it came from my overly close an co-dependent relationship with someone. I idolized my relationship with that person and put it above my relationship with God. My soul…
