Since my divine intervention last year (when a lady saw me crying in a vision), I often say, "God Sees You." It isn't a motivational cheer or empty words I offer during dark seasons. It's a promise. He sees us. God pulled me through broken pieces and proved that he saw me. I knew he … Continue reading Bible Study Giveaway!
This month is Mental Health Awareness Month. As someone who's suffered from Major Depression in the past and deals with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD or seasonal depression), I want to help bring awareness. So I'm excited to announce authors Jaime Jo Wright, Jennifer Q. Hunt, Bethany Cox, and RN Sherry Grant will be guest blogging … Continue reading Happy May 🌻
Today marks a year that God rescued me from suicide. It's never an easy topic, and I struggled with guilt in the months that followed. But I think of all the times God told Israelites to Remember when . . . He doesn't want us to forget where he pulled us out from. I know … Continue reading Remember When . . .
Some do resolutions. Some do a word. This year, I was just going to write down a couple of goals. But a word came to me after a bit of soul searching. I read somewhere that if we let circumstances change us to the worst version of ourselves, then we've lost sight of who God … Continue reading Word of the Year

When you were a baby, I told Daddy that if you ever went to an out-of-state university that I would follow you wherever you went. As much as I want to keep my word, I know it's fanciful. 🤷♀️ My little Robin will one day spread her wings and leave my nest. I don't like … Continue reading A Letter to my Oldest Daughter
On Tuesday, I hit the lowest of my blue day segments. God knows I prayed as my head hit the pillow, and later as I knelt in my closet after I pushed to get out of bed.

A few days ago I wrote about depression and hoping for better days. The following day I found an old note book heading for the trash but I quickly scanned it to make sure there was nothing of value written in it. I found this on the back cover. Perfect timing when getting out of … Continue reading Perfect Findings
