Aaaah

Coming home has been a breath of fresh air. Let me clarify because I know you might be thinking, is this chic in the same Louisiana whose sidewalks are so hot that you can cook your Sunday dinner on them? Is she breathing in a special kind of air reserved for God’s chosen people? The…

A Good Day

One of the most difficult things for me to do is just be. I’m spending a little time in my hometown this summer so that I can recharge by slowing down considerably. Believe it or not, I have. Of course I’ve made plans to visit a few people, spend time with my family, and connect…

Pump Your Brakes

Glorious Monday morning, friends! I hope that your Resurrection Sunday was filled with signs and wonders. My Holy Week was filled to the brink with attacks and clarity. I realized that I’m a lot softer in this season. The attacks I’ve endured over the past month would’ve taken me out a few years ago. I…

The Difference – Day 2 of 2

When we last spoke, I mentioned an antidote, a recipe, or a solution to the dilemma we sometimes face when others seek to demean, diminish, or destroy us with their words and actions.

Spiritual Disciplines – Day 1

Glorious Sunday morning, friends! As I look out my bedroom window, there’s just a hint of snow remaining from Friday’s weather event, but the chilly temps are still hanging around until later today according to Siri. I’m really starting to embrace winter. It has never been my favorite season because it takes time and effort…

Independence Overrated

Glorious Monday morning! I trust that wherever you are, you are filled with hope, love, and joy. There are so many reasons to be hopeful, so many opportunities to love, and only one way to experience joy. As a young single woman, I would always say that I just wanted to be happy. As a…
