Stevie Wonder released a song many years ago entitled: "These 3 Words," which translated I LOVE YOU, three very powerful words when spoken with sincerity of heart. However, today I want to discuss 3 other words often overlooked yet even more life changing than I love you! Those three words are: I FORGIVE YOU!

So here's the deal. When I was a little kid, I had a hard time expressing myself verbally due to the HUGE amount of roller coaster emotions I was experiencing. Therefore, I began to write, write, write. Here I am an adult and STILL expressing myself in the form of writing, so much so, I was able to compose a book entitled: "MAKES ME WANNA HOLLA!" Go figure, right! This book written with a transparent tone in order to encourage and empower girls and women, is now available in it's first book s...Read Full Post »

This morning I pondered a series of thoughts, you know how it is in the AM, 1,000 thoughts of the day racing throughout the mind.

Yesterday in my time of meditation and reading, the Lord lead me to 1Kings 11:1-13 where Solomon chose to disregard the instructions God gave him regarding entangling himself with foreign women. Such women would turn Solomon and the other Israelite hearts away from God. Nonetheless, Solomon did as he pleased and married not one or two but many foreign women. Just as God predicted, his heart was turned away and he built alters for worshipping false g...Read Full Post »
