After a long day of work and meetings, I gathered my things and headed to the dojo where my family has a membership. I started going to caged fitness after I sold my treadmill. I never thought I’d look forward to working out but I relish the time on the mat on Monday and Wednesday

Life is a journey inhibited by time. When babies come into the world they are called newborns. In a few weeks they become infants, then toddlers, and preschoolers and so one. After kindergarten, those little wide eyed kindergarteners become bright eyed elementary students. Everything is segmented and compartmentalized in ages and stages dictated by time.
In addition to learning that more than 500 copies of First Family Secrets (affiliate link) have been downloaded from a pirate site, one of my readers sent me a heartfelt email. I won’t go into detail about the entire message but I will respond publically to one question she asked: do you hate The Church? In
Bonefish Grill is one of my favorite places to eat. It is a place we go for “special” date nights. Every time we go, the hubs and I always get at least one appetizer of Bang Bang Shrimp—“crispy shrimp, tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce”. In Montgomery, we lived rather close to the restaurant.
This year, my goal is to find freedom in every area of my life. Outside of my relationship with God, my marriage is perhaps the most important relationship in my life.

I grew up in the South—Mississippi as a matter of fact. My exposure to racism as a child was nothing like you’d expect. To date, the area I grew up in is still relatively segregated. Not necessarily in a bad way but segregated nonetheless. I didn’t encounter the “N” word shouted at me from the
Mull over the title of this post.. For the longest time, I looked at the things most people would consider as blessings as hindrances or restraints. I used my children as an excuse not to work out or to do things for myself. I used my husband and other relationships as an excuse not to
I get my love for kitchen gadgets from my mother kaykelady (IG). For as long as I can remember she has been a fan of cooking and kitchen gadgets. Unlike most people [me], she uses the things she purchases. I don’t. However, there is one item I begged for that I use several times a
Happy New Year! If you’re wondering about the title, I assure you it is not what you think. I wasn’t just released from jail… Well, I take that back. I freed myself from a self-imposed prison of fear. Yep. For quite some time now I’ve been paralyzed by trepidation—not really living at all. Operating in
