On Faith | Why My Walk Isn’t Your Walk And Yours Isn’t Mine

faith walk

Over the course of the last two months or so, I’ve seen more division within the body of Christ than I’ve seen in quite some time. No doubt, it’s always been there even before the Law of Moses but for some reason, I’ve been seeing quite a bit of it lately and I believe it’s time that I speak my piece. Let me start by saying that I believe that a certain amount of debate within our faith is healthy. It shows that we care deeply […]

Building An Intimate Relationship With God

intimacy God

No matter where you may be in your faith walk, intimacy with God should always be your desire. Intimacy moves beyond cookie cutter prayers, weekly church attendance, and serving in the media ministry. An intimate relationship with God says Lord, I need to be near you more than I need to fulfill my own wants and desires. James 4:8, one of my favorite scriptures says, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” Everything about this scripture lets us know that God is […]

Tips For “Being Still” When Moving Is What You Do Best

being still

I have a confession: I’m a bit of a busy body. I like things done when I want them done, how I want them done, and I’m prepared to do it all on my own.

I’ve faced it— I am a mover and sometimes standing still and trusting that God will come through […]

She has been an inspiration to me for so many years and I have watched her overcome so much. Who better to talk about fear than one of the bravest women I have ever met? I love her and I […]

The Time That I Almost Gave Up On God

Gave Up God

I don’t know who this is for but God really laid it on my heart to share my story. I hope that it blesses you. About 7 years ago, I made the conscious decision that I would never enter into deep relationship with God again. I never spoke about it to anyone but I had my mind made up. I still tithed, I still went to church every Sunday and I still fit the description of a ‘Christian’ but my heart was no longer in […]

How I Won The Battle Between Living A Life For God And Staying Relevant

Living for Christ

I asked around a bit to find out what other young Christians were struggling with and this topic hit so close to home that I absolutely had to tell you guys my thoughts. As Christians, particularly young ones, there always seems to be a constant battle between staying cool or trendy and living a lifestyle that’s completely honorable before God. And for so long, I struggled with it. One of the biggest things that I felt kept me from completely renouncing my life of sin […]
