It is a beautiful day to be alive! The God of the universe is still on the throne. He is sovereign. The God of all seasons is my father, your father, our father…How cool! What a privilege! I stopped by to share this amazing praise and worship song. Have a blessed Sunday and hope filled […]

Motherhood is a joyful experience and life is beautiful. Yet…… Sometimes, I have a heavy heart. Sometimes, I can feel thick clouds of darkness. Sometimes, it feels like there is a weight on me. Sometimes, I feel like crying as I pity myself. Sometimes, I feel hopeless. Sometimes, I feel…
I just shared this post on my LinkedIn page and decided to copy it here as well. To encourage anyone facing a challenging time. If you are LinkedIn, let’s connect 🤓🤜🏻🤛🏻 This day 6 years ago, I achieved my American dream.. I became a naturalized American citizen through military service. It was a difficult legal […]
You didn’t fail as a mother. Not even a little bit. You could not have prevented this if you tried harder, prayed harder or was a better mother nor if you loved harder or wasn’t so hard on them neither not hard enough. Your child has free mortal agency meaning they have “free will.” In […]
Almost every new mom says “I did not know I could love someone this much”. This same love can turn a mother without combat skills into a fierce warrior when her child is in trouble. Love is what makes many mothers quit bad habits that could potentially hurt a child in their womb. For love […]

I wrote a 2019 final post but it was not published due to mommy duties. It ended up being deleted. Little children have a special way of throwing their parent’s plans out the window. The little one has interrupted my plans countless times. Now, I make plans with consideration and…
Every morning, I welcome the little one into a new day with a big smile on my face. I always get a smile back. Every morning, God welcomes us into a new day with new mercies. That’s the biggest smile I can think of. Receive God’s love and mercy, He extends them to you because […]
Have you ever felt disappointed on Mother’s Day? You’re not alone. Over the years, I’ve had the same feeling. Each year would be different than the next yet the underlying emotion the same. This post is dedicated to mothers who do not feel appreciated. Who else can relate to the feeling of being estranged from […]
A sad news was brought to my attention yesterday- China is experiencing a high divorce rate after COVID-19 lockdown and a divorce pandemic is expected to spread globally. Social distancing has left people with no choice but to stay at home with their spouse. Personally, staying at home with my spouse has been wonderful. We […]
For a few days now, I have found myself sleeping off and going to bed early while putting the little one to sleep. Sleep is contagious these days. I hope yall have been resting. It takes extra effort to get a lot done with the little one at home. How are you all balancing school, […]
When the little one wants something he has no word for, he says “mine”. He doesn’t not care who owns it. If he wants it, it’s “mine”. This behavior got me thinking about the power in claiming what is rightfully ours based on God’s Word. If God says it is mine, then I want it. […]
Most of us were born with skin so soft and fresh, but a few of us will leave this world with skin so soft and fresh. We all have scars to show for our experience here on earth. Our scars show what we have been through. They tell stories of our victories. Even the little […]
Psalm 34:8 (KJV) O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. The little one hardly reject any food I give to him. He always taste then decides if he would eat more or push the food away. The little one tastes from a place of trust. The fact that I have given […]
Recently, I came across two heartbreaking stories in the news. The first was about a father who was facing a life sentence in prison, for causing permanent damage to his newborn. The father woke up in the middle of the night to sooth his crying baby, and got more frustrated as the baby continued crying. The older son was also in the room with them, and the father got even more agitated….
This post has nothing to do with my motherhood experience. However, future moms going through a season of infertility may find this post encouraging. My hope is that this testimony would lift the spirit of someone in despair, feeling stagnant, like God has forgotten you. Everyone is celebrating a new year but you feel like […]
Cheers to new beginnings! Cheers to new adventures! Cheers to a new decade! It is a good day to be alive, and I am thankful you are alive to read this! We are breaking limits this year!
I used to think including people into every part of our family life was a must do. The older I get though, the more this truth becomes clear- I don’t owe anyone the gift, that is, my life. I don’t owe friendship. I don’t owe relationship to others with my children, those things are gifts. […]
“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 […]
Dear friends, please join the prayer chain. Thank you. Update 12/22/19: We will see Little Olive in heaven. Thank you for praying for this family. God bless you. While God doesn’t need thousands of people to answer a prayer, we are called to pray for one another and stand in unity.
There is something interesting about the women/mothers mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. Tamar disguised as a prostitute to have sex with her father-in-law, Rahab was a prostitute, Ruth was a Moabite (a descendant of an incestuous relationship between Lot and his older daughter), Uriah’s wife (nameless in the genealogy, her husband was killed […]
So…… I was recently asked to share my testimony about God’s faithfulness through fertility issues and miscarriage… Honestly, I didn’t feel like it. It’s painful. It’s vulnerable. It’s not a happy topic. While I have shared these deep scars with other sisters in private, it’s not something I have ever done “publicly.” Partly, it is […]
I have been hurt several times when I didn’t receive what I asked God for. I have had circumstances that made me say “this is too much for one person to deal with”, “why me?”, and “why did God let this happen?”.
I pray that you encounter God’s love through this song. I have been blessed by it since the beginning of the week. Play it in your car, play it in your house, and let your spirit come alive. We are covered by love! Through your story is My fingerprintIn the valley there is confidenceIn the […]
Did you know, this month is National Recovery Month? With his permission to share, here is a part of my dad’s story. At 11 years old, my dad went to a party full of adults. At that party a woman made the choice to stick a needle full of heroin in his arm. He worked […]
