We have times in life where it seems as if nothing is going right at all. Whether it’s our health, family life, work life, or just life in general. Sometimes it just seems too much to bear, and usually, when that happens the enemy likes to creep up and put the thought in our mind to just give up. It […]

Taking care of our bodies.

  Your body is a temple is what I always heard as a child, and I never understood what that meant until now. Before, and after I found out I had a heart disease, I wasn’t treating my body as a temple I was treating it as an abandoned house. I was indulging in many foods, sweets, and other things I knew wasn’t […]

Why do you worship

A few weeks ago I recited a poem I wrote at my church’s talent show. I wanted to share it with you all as well. Also a copy of the video of me reciting this at my church. Enjoy! The Devil is busy he will do anything he can to get inside your mind and throw you off track. Well […]

Running the race

  Keep moving, keep running Don’t slow down keep gunning Your dreams they are near Keep jumping over the hurdles of fear Don’t let the obstacles trip you up Keep courage filled in your cup It seems like the track is breaking down It seems like your feet keep losing ground You knew that everything wasn’t going to be bliss […]

But you don’t look sick.

In this blog, I am going to talk about something that I hear very often.

My strength comes from God, my family, and friends.  Sometimes strength will come when you least expect it.  There are times where I am not feeling my best physically […]

Happiness

One of the questions that I get asked all the time is “how do you remain so happy with everything going on”? My response is always that you have to create your happiness.  I know that sounds cliché, but the more you practice creating happiness the happiness will flow.  I try not to focus on the negative and do things […]

Family & Heart Disease

What does family mean to you? Does it mean people who are blood related to you? To me family can be anyone you share a deep connection with whether they are blood related or not. This journey has been tough, but it would have been tougher if my support system wasn’t so strong. Yes, I try to remain positive at […]
