Grieving Heart

Peaceful protests against racism have turned into violent protests in various states here in the United States. My county was placed on curfew last night and a state of emergency was declared. My heart grieves that there is racism going on even in the Church. My heart grieves for Black mothers and wives living in…

Memorial Day 2020

Today, we remember those who paid the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy in the United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. America shall win the war. Therefore, I will work. I will save. I will sacrifice. I will endure. I will fight cheerfully and do…

Earth Day and COVID-19

Earth Day was celebrated two days ago, April 22nd. There is no doubt that nature truly got a break from human pollution this year. Cleaner air, water, and land are positive impacts of COVID-19. I can imagine that endangered species have used this period to increase their population and lands in need of rest finally…

Death Has NO Hold on Me

It is with great joy and confidence that I write this post. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ means death lost its sting and those who believe in Jesus Christ should not be afraid of death. Imagine the joy of taking that last breath here on earth with relief, without struggle and uncertainty about…

A Season of Humility

It is interesting that we are celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in a season that has humbled everyone. Jesus Christ the Messiah lived a life of humility, completely surrendered to God even in the face of death. He was able to say, "not my will but yours be done". Jesus was all…

National Day of Prayer (USA)

Isn't it amazing that a president can ask everyone dwelling in the land to call upon God in the time of trouble?! I pray that the Lord continues to guide president Trump's decisions this season and always. That he will experience the love of God and receive godly counsel. 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people,…

Thoughts on the Coronavirus

Whether the Coronavirus is overhyped or just like the influenza virus, this viral epidemic is thriving on the spirit of fear. As a Christian mother, I refuse to bow to the spirit of fear and I encourage you all to stand strong in faith. We should maintain good hygiene and enforce our authority as kingdom…

Thoughts on Parenting 101

WE SHOULD NOT COMPARE OUR CHILD WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILDREN. NEITHER SHOULD WE COMPARE OUR CHILDREN WITH EACH OTHER. EVERY CHILD IS SPECIAL. EVERY CHILD IS DESTINED FOR GREATNESS. THE JOB OF A PARENT IS TO NURTURE A CHILD'S DREAM AND BRING OUT THE BEST IN A CHILD. MAXIMIZE THE STRENGTHS OF YOUR CHILD. MARY…

Overcoming Impostor Syndrome: God Makes Me Competent

Hello friends, please check out this guest post I wrote for a fellow Christian blogger, Katy @ unblemished. I shared my struggle with impostor syndrome and how I overcome it.

The Unblemished blog has a collection of faith stories and testimonies written by Christian women. If you have a story to share, please contact Katy.

UnBlemished

Have you ever felt like you do not belong at the table despite bringing something to the table? Have you ever felt undeserving of a position despite being overqualified?  You may be struggling with impostor syndrome. While it is not an official psychological condition, impostor syndrome is known as a condition that affects many high achievers or successful people. It is a denial of personal achievements and competency despite evidences of success.

Last year, I sat in a room filled with business owners, directors, managers, and other individuals in top positions on their jobs. Suddenly, I began to think I did not belong there.  An overwhelming feeling of incompetency came upon me.  Lies flooded my head as everyone introduced themselves. I told myself, “you do not have a quarter of the experience these people have, you should not be here”, “you are not that smart, you are here by…

The New Year’s Tag

The New Year’s Tag was created by big brother Matt at Jesusluvsall’s blog to reflect on the past year. He exudes the love of God and love for people in his blog posts and interaction with other bloggers. Big brother Matt is called big brother for many reasons but these two reasons sums it all up- he…

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

"Sleep in Heavenly peace" is a beautiful melodic phrase taken from the timeless Christmas Carol classic, Silent Night. Baby Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords slept peacefully in his makeshift crib in a humble stall, while Herod and Jerusalem were troubled about his birth (Matthew 2:3). The fully grown Jesus slept so…

A Short Christmas Message

Giving to someone who cannot return the favor is one of the most joyful things to do. As parents, we give the gift of time, love, money, and more to our children because that's what parents do, and most times we expect nothing in return. Especially when our children are developmentally incapable of giving back.…

Netflix: The First Temptation of Christ

It's Christmas season and Netflix thought it wise to portray Jesus as gay in The First Temptation of Christ. Jesus loves and died for everyone with different 'sexual orientation' but He was not gay. Neither was He a drunkard as portrayed by another Netflix comedy. Such disrespect for the Christian faith should not be encouraged.…

End of Semester

Wow! I submitted my final paper for the semester one hour ago, and it feels so good to finally get a break. While I enjoyed reading articles and writing about the human brain, parent-child relationship, infant mental health, and all things early childhood development, I feel relieved from the pressure of meeting assignment deadlines. It…

Christmas Is About Giving and Receiving

In God's kingdom, giving and receiving are important. While it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35), receiving is also important. How can we fulfill God's purpose for our lives if we do not receive God's free gifts and enjoy the benefits of being a giver (Luke 6:38). Yesterday, I read a…

What Do Christians Owe Humanity?

Have you ever found yourself thinking or saying, "I don't owe anybody anything "? I have. The Bible says you and I owe something. We owe humanity the gift of love. Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.…
