Faith It Till You Make It and Keep PUSHing! ⋆ Dreams of My Own – Single Mum, Parents Article

I woke up this morning hearing the word “Faith”. In my dream, I remember having a conversation with God asking Him for the “when”. When will the time come, God? What is there left for me to do that I haven’t done yet? Is there something I haven’t sought forgiveness on? Is there someone I haven’t forgiven? Where am I displeasing you, Lord?

Religious burnout and unshakeable faith – Parenting Twins Article

Ok let’s talk about faith. Recently I have been learning that it’s normal, and actually ok, to have peaks and troughs in our journey of faith. I used to think that I would be on a constant upward trajectory in my faith. Feeling closer and closer to God and becoming more and more like Jesus as my life went on.

It was apart of our lives and it was what we do. “Does prayer exist in today’s families and relationships?” Today, too many couples are “coupling up” as a result of physical attraction and disregarding the ordained attraction. Relationships today fail to include…

The Legacy Of Truth – Seek it. Keep it. Know it. Share it. ⋆ Dreams of My Own – Single Mum, Parents Article

 Truth Matters Truth. It took me quite a long time to compose an introduction to this. There’s just so much to consider. Yesterday,  after witnessing my son being racially profiled and disrespected, I was left with only two options – either making an impact for my son or making an impact on the world. “I chose my son.” Right in the grocery store, my son approached the opposite side of the freezer and a man who was already alone in…
