Winds of change

What happens when that initial umph subsides and you two become nothing more than that other couple you promised couldn’t be your future. Stop playing because you know what I mean. You remember how you got all cute an hour before he got home from work or how you used to actually listen to her…

Pit stop to pain

Watching tick tocks escape and I think back to when she was here. Dazed, confused, aimless, abused beautiful terror… at least that’s how I saw her No man wanted to keep her but they smiled in her face, like Babylon the great they went through her.

The first 15

  It’s 1:28 pm, Wednesday, March 8th and I’m supposed to write about something, anything. For 15 whole minutes. It’s been such a long time since I’ve written like this. Truth is if I never did this, could I truly call myself a writer? Speaking of which, call myself. So, is this dream of mine…

Money Talks: Dollars and Sense

Money Talks: The Journey Begins

    Yesterday, my husband and I  decided to do something that we’ve wanted to do for a long time—we began Financial Peace University. In early adulthood, we didn’t always make sound financial decisions, and that caught up with us. Why am I sharing this with you? Because I know we’re not alone. You too may…

Conversations

It started with a conversation I had with myself. What do I want out of life? What is my life? What is life? He’s called me to be more than this but I had my reservations. But, why? As I kept prodding within myself to discover my problem, there was only one viable reason: I…

#FearlessPurpose2018

One thing 2017 taught me is there is only one way to live. Fearlessly on purpose. While reflecting on what the Lord has been ministering to me in my quiet time, the Lord, in essence, whispered this dare in my spirit. What will you do with 2018, Candace? Will you run and not grow weary…
