Two Ways to Honor Military Veterans

I will be honest that I did not join the military hoping to go to war. I am thankful I did not have to. Some of my "battle buddies" wanted to deploy and retire. I just wanted to serve and leave. While I left the military with physical injuries, others left with both physical and…

We can't trust our governments to protect our children. They are failing every child regardless of race. While some local churches are speaking up through the…

Raising a Black son in the 21st century

Feeling afraid is a natural feeling of being a new mom. We’ve all laid awake at night pondering questions like, “do I have what it takes to raise this tiny human being when I don’t have my own life figured out?” “Am I going to ruin this kid?” But soon after the birth of my…

Prayer In The Waiting Room

This is what being a Christian Momma looks like, seeing people through God’s eyes and carrying God’s presence everywhere we go. Not because we are perfect, but because we serve a God willing to work through imperfect vessels. Enjoy this great post by fellow blogger, Dawn @drawingclosertochrist.com

Drawing Closer to Christ

Colossians 4:2 NLT, “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.”

Yesterday I had to go visit the GYN for my annual exam. It’s a very busy place, so when I go, I always know that I’ll be waiting at least an hour before I see the doctor, but this time my wait ended up being an hour and a half. I waited one hour in the main waiting room, and thirty minutes in the exam room.

All the women I saw were anticipating the arrival of a little one. I thought to myself, at this point in my life, I wouldn’t want to change places with them. But I also remember when I was there like them, expecting my daughter, and how exciting it was as the time for her arrival drew closer. It’s hard to believe how fast the years have flown by.

Let it Go

1 Peter 5:7 (KJV) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. This is for the intercessors standing in the gap. This is for parents burdened about the wrong choices and health of their children. This is for everyone who believes in the Lord, Jesus. Cast ALL your care upon God. Be…

First, Pray

It may sound ridiculous but worrying is the easiest and hardest thing we can do when faced with trials. It's the easiest thing because it comes naturally and sometimes gives us a false sense of control. It is also the hardest thing because it has negative impacts on our spirit, soul, and body. Philippians 4:6…

Reblog:The Season of ‘No’

Wonderful spiritual lesson by another Christian momma raising a toddler. My little one is only 9-month-old but I am already using the words, “Don’t” and “no”. One major take-away from this article is that God doesn’t keep things from us, He keeps them for us. This is why patience is important in our walk with God, parenting and doing life. Jess encourages us to accept the fact that some prayers we tag ‘unanswered’ or ‘NO’ from God may be for our good. Personally, the beauty of every NO is that they challenge me to seek God’s best in every situation. Enjoy this short article and be blessed!

“We don’t swim in the toilet!” No.

“Don’t feed your breakfast to the dog!” No.

“Don’t eat MY breakfast!” No.

“Don’t pee on the floor!” No.

Whew! You guessed it: these are some commonly overheard phrases in my home. Life with a toddler- what a season! Some days I feel like all I do is utter the word ‘no’ to her in one way or another. It’s a frustration to constantly speak it, but I can, in fact, accurately imagine that it’s frustrating to be on the receiving end of that word as well.

But why do I tell her no, or forbid her from doing things? Is it because I’m a big ol’ bully who just wants to be boss? Of course not. I don’t let her splash in the toilet because, germs. I don’t let her feed the dog because she needs the fuel herself. I don’t let…

Mothers are Important for Many Reasons But This May Be the MOST Important Reason…..

"Antibodies are passed from mother to baby through the placenta during the last three months of pregnancy. This gives the baby some protection when they are born. The type and amount of antibodies passed to the baby depends on the mother’s own level of immunity......" While our children are still under our spiritual covering, they must not be overcomed by that which cannot overcome us!

Reasons My Husband and I Can’t Afford to Be Spiritually Lukewarm Parents

Our decision to be more spiritually sensitive and seek God's help isn't out of fear that something bad will happen if we are not rightly positioned or don't do things right. We are simply acknowledging our dependence on God.
