2020 is cancelled.

Let's just throw the year away.

Let's just start over in 2021.

Worst. Year. EVER.

Over the last few months, I have seen memes and social media posts that reflect these sentiments. For the first time in modern history, the entire world is facing a global, economic, and (depending on who you ask) health crises. This is in addition to rising racial tensions, many businesses closing, schools being cancelled, and muc...

It’s time to be real.

Life as we know it has changed. Things we took for granted like sending our children to school or grabbing a coffee with friends are all on pause. Even going to a normal check up at the doctor causes fear and going to church...it’s gonna be a while. Masks made for our youngest children. Vacations are canceled and even sitting in a restaurant is non-existent.

We would be lying if we said this time of isolati...

At some point or another we've all faced trials or hardship. For some, it could be something as small as a temporary financial setback. For others it may be the loss of a loved one, a health crisis or unexpected job loss that causes devestation.  Whatever the circumstances, it’s easy to lose hope when you can’t see a way out or questions are left unanswered.

For me, that storm was the loss of my marriage.

It was unexpected...

It only takes one person to start an outbreak.

Weeks ago, I started to watch a series called, “Pandemic.” Out of all that was shared, one of the most interesting ideas was that it only took one person to spread a disease. The documentary shared the various ways that diseases spread and way science seeks to stop it. However, the fact remained without proper precautions an outbreak could occur at any time. Yet, as only the Holy S...

I have a confession.

I spent years as a “catfish.”

Not sure what a catfish is, let me explain. The term was originally coined by Nev Schulman, a young man who documented being tricked by a person pretending to be someone else. Nev went on to create a show called Catfish, which showcased people from around the world who wanted to discover who they were really dating online. If this show taught us noting else, it taught us that i...

2020 is off to an amazing start! I couldn't be more thrilled to share with you Ibelieve.com's top article of 2019! My prayer is that this article will give you the courage to walk through the doors GOD is placing right in front of you!

Have you ever wondered if God was opening a door or if the enemy was teasing you with a fresh “opportunity”?

It can be difficult to decipher if your good idea is a “God idea.” In fact, I am a bel...

Sorrow- distress caused by loss, affliction, disappointment, etc.; grief, sadness, or regret.

Sorrow, a deep pain that won’t budge.

Sorrow, an internal morning over what has taken place

As I was praying over what to share. The words that kept resounding in my heart were, “Farewell to sorrow.”

Some of us have been through some things in the last few months that have rocked us to our core. Things that have challenged our faith. Thin...

Have you ever noticed that triumph and triumph  start the same?

The sound “try” starts them both.

In your life, it may seem the more you try to triumph, the more you face trials.

Yet, the more you try to succeed in the midst of trials, the more you experience triumph.

My friends, many of you are facing times of great trials. Sickness, loss, financial difficulty, relationship issues, trial after trial with no relief! Tod...

Have you ever read a scripture in one version, only to read it in another and get so much more from it!

Well it happened to me! Many of us are familiar with Romans 12:2, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

We’re not even going to get on how we never memorize that...

To some, these are just names. To others, these names represent a family torn, a congregation in mourning, and another tragedy. These pastors, each dying from suicide, are the unfortunate reminder that mental health and depression are ever present within the church community. They remind us that no one is above the sting of being so overwhelmed and f...
