Unfortunately, the CPSC does not check toy safety until the products hit the

A Diva’s Armor

Inspired by Ephesians 6:10-18 Be fierce in appearance and in the integrity of relationships.  Cloth yourself in elegance, femininity, and grace so that you will be revered and envied by the haters.  Your outward show should reflect the goodness within; setting the standard amongst other black women, promoting self awareness, self confidence, self worth, and
