The Power of I Am Not

Hear Speak See only What God Says

“You, don’t have no more kids”! The elderly woman said emphatically as she placed her hands on my belly, my womb, my creative birthing space designed by God to procreate. She proclaimed words that had the potential to abort my destiny. At the time I was pregnant with Bellange, my now seven-year-old daughter. Though Bella […]

The Power of Discovering Your Secret Place

I remember watching a movie growing up called the Secret Garden. A young boy who was crippled and, in a wheelchair, discovered a place of identity, safety and tranquility. The place he thought was safe wasn’t, so here he could be free. It was a place of healing. As the story went on, the boy […]

Don’t Let Your Love Grow Cold

Have you ever felt like your walk with God wasn’t “working”?  Have you ever wondered, “am I doing this right”?  Steeped in doubt and clouded by fear, maybe you’ve piddled in frustration, wondering if God sees you, if He, the Almighty One would care about your seemingly small existence.  I’ve been there. I’ve been in […]

The Power of Repentance: Discovering a Fresh Start

Today, I had to repent. I had to repent for being more committed to client outcomes than the Kingdom outcomes assigned over my life.  I had to repent for not believing enough, for allowing doubt to creep into my dreams. I had to repent for professing God’s Word over my life and not acting out […]

Renew. Rebuild. Repair.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some clear directives or commands that God gave me concerning my life, my walk with God, my home, and my ministry. As a church leader, I recognized that I could no longer depend on weekly services for my weekly “fix”. I had to know how to command the presence […]

Expansion through Humility: From Underdog to Overcomer

Have you ever gazed into the sky? The view is endless. You cannot define the beginning or the end in sight. In the same way, God has packed infinite possibilities within – and it starts with your choices. God has outlined very specific instructions and dispositions, a way of being, in His Word. Many times, […]

The Soul of Expansion

What if you had the power to rise above every challenge that ever came your way? What if you had the knowledge and the tools to navigate around roadblocks and barriers to your prosperity? This morning, I woke up to my daily routine. I prayed, I read my Bible and I did my Afrifitness dance […]

The Satisfaction Only a Few Will Ever Know

“She searches out continually to possess that which is pure and righteous. She delights in the work of her hands.” Proverbs 31:13 There are many ways we could live, many thoughts we could think – some of which can take us down pathways of unhappiness and destruction. I’ve spent many years oscillating from fear to […]

Book Review: Rhythms of Renewal

“Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.” Ecclesiastes 4:6 Background I came across the Rhythms of Renewal book while listening to one of my favorite Christian podcasts, Chrystal’s Chronicles with Chrystal Evans-Hurst. I was drawn to this book as I neared the end of my pregnancy with […]
