For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in church. I remember my mom waking me up a way too early for a weekend, dressing me in a frilly dress with uncomfortable stockings and slippery, glossy heels. Then she and my father would take us to a place where the music was a little […]
Jesus & Therapy
I remember the first time I ever saw a therapist. It was the year 2010, and one of the ladies I worked with at the time was talking about going to counseling weekly. She put it plainly like this, “I go see a complete stranger once a week and vent for like an hour just […]

If Not Now, When?!
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” Leo Tolstoy Time has been my best friend and also my worst enemy. I can see how time is beneficial. You want time to learn a new hobby or interest, to get over a heartbreak or even to prolong our expected expiration date at the end of […]
7 years ago today, I was lying in a hospital bed in a haze. My parents were on either side of me after having to talk to doctors and nurses about possible stomach pumps and blood test, trying to make sure I hadn’t done my body permanent damage. Luckily for me, physically I was fine. […]
“So what’s going on with you and Mr. _____.” My mother asked me the other night, about one of the few guys that I’ve told her about since I’ve been single for almost four years now. Hold up. Can we talk about how that’s a MAJOR accomplishment?!! I ain’t think I could ever be “alone” […]
Why I Stayed
“Why did you stay after he cheated?” Uh. Wow. A question I had never been asked so directly before. I had to stop and think for a second before I answered. Even still, I don’t believe I answered it fully. So.. I’ll answer it here. I never believed I was a woman that would […]
Time Machines & Things
A few weekends ago, it was like I was stuck in a time machine and I couldn’t bring myself to come to present day. The year I was stuck in mostly was 2014. It was a year that started with a lot of loss. I first lost my guy best friend that had been a […]
6th Grade and Heartbreaks
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always set myself up to get my heart broken. If I could re-call my first heart break, I would say it happened when I was in the 6th grade. I had, unfortunately, fallen “in love” with my best friend. His name was Isiah (YES I’M USING YOUR […]
Let God, Be God Bro.
Today I’m having one of those episodes, where I’m realizing the call on my life and how I said yes… But now I’m thinking maybe I should’ve just hung up the phone. Yep. I said it. I SHOULDA HUNG UP ON JESUS! “Who dis? Jesus? You looking for Tiffany? Oh, you got the wrong number […]
