Unfortunate circumstances have a way of summoning sadness while also welcoming the entrance of blessings.  Death can be seen as one of these unfortunate circumstances.  Suffering loss can leave anyone devastated, confused, questioning God, and sometimes even wondering when the time will come for them to leave this earth.  It can cause families to grieve together, laugh together, smile together, and hold each other closer.  But although death has a way of bringing people together, it also has a way... Read more

Social media has become a very useful tool for sharing information.  We can become knowledgeable on a plethora of topics just by opening up an app or two and exploring.  One of the most popular pieces of content to digest now is videos.  We can consume videos of people dancing and singing, but they dare not be of a woman preaching. I recently experienced this type of rejection on social media myself.  But get this, I wasn’t even preaching!  Our... Read more

In the past, I made a practice of limiting my commentary on certain issues.  Maybe it was because I was afraid that my words would be hurtful to someone else.

You and I more than likely know someone who has said, “I’m denouncing my letters,” after they’d been enlightened on the possible dangers or insinuations of idolatry that Greek letter organizations (GLOs) pose.  While I’ve never delved too much into this topic beyond giving my perspective to individuals in private conversations, I felt the need to address it. This is because it has come up quite a bit recently. Note that I am affiliated with a Black Greek letter organization... Read more

I’m not an active fisher now, but when I was in high school, we would go fishing quite a bit. The idea of baiting a hook completely grossed me out initially, but once I realized that I had to do it to catch fish, I mustered up the guts and baited away. Although the act of fishing itself was enjoyable and relaxing for us, my sister and I would get so upset when we didn’t catch anything. But we always... Read more
