Joyful Sorrow

If you take a look at my last few blog posts, you’ll notice that they are product reviews, and the most recent heartfelt post was from March 2019. It was about my experience with the loss of my Mom. I told myself that I wasn’t going to let anything keep me from writing because Mom wouldn’t want me to stop.

Mended: Restoring the Hearts of Mothers and Daughters Book Review

As I write this, my heart hurts. My heart hurts for the daughters that did not get the chance to reconcile with their Mamas before it was too late. My heart hurts for the daughters that maybe said something they wish they could take back or wish they could have said anything. Continue reading

Blessed yet Bitter

Tribal Identity, part one

Every season brings or removes individuals from our lives as we further into our journey towards spiritual growth. Yet, as these changes occur, God reveals the much-needed fruit of the Spirit He offers freely to us.
