Red, White, and Black

I didn’t know what to write about today, yet here we are. Looking at my son as he sleeps in my arms, I realized the most important thing I could share with you. While everyone is on their path to find their happy and relative truth, I learned this. Before we gasped for air, we…

Waiting games

Today has been interesting. Constant baby squawking that tried to upend my theology. I usually get what I pray for—and I’m thankful! It gets tough sometimes and I feel like sulking in a corner, too. Being too emotional doesn’t fix a thing; it just keeps me from having the right perspective. Have you ever found…

Spring fresh

Once more the season of spring Belches out thunder and hail Lightning dances across the sky Internet squeals TAKE COVER to scrollers… Songs burst through my lips Praises saturate my being Worshipping the King, The living God—Lord of the Rain… Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the Lord’s thy God, the earth…

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. Her eyes almost screamed unnatural agonies, obscenities, but someone…

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: 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…

Have Faith. Dream. Execute.

If someone challenged you to deny everything you believed in, would you succumb to their whims? If the phrase, “Well, everybody’s doing it,” was the mantra that everyone around you seemed to prefer, would you change your convictions? What is it that makes you loyal to your faith? Even if you don’t think you’re a spiritual…
