Listen: I Joined Stefani Stolzfus on her Podcast Truth Chat With Moms

I’m overjoyed to share I was interviewed on the “Truth Chats with Moms” podcast by my very sweet friend Stefani. While I’m not a mom yet we both hold adoption both dear to our hearts.  We met about two years ago at bloggers conference called Declare in Texas. We instantly became friends. Although we are…

I Burned All My Old Journals

If you a writer you may cringe at the title of this post.  No need to pray for God to revive my journals.  The burning of my journals was inspired by God. Trust me; else I would have NEVER!. With all honesty, I would have probably kept those journals forever. At first, I didn’t understand…

August Monthly Devotional: Coming Back Home From Backsliding

No one really knew the battle just God and I. Working 9-5, churchgoing and showing up where I committed to. The outside saw no trace of backsliding. But for me rocky; would describe the last couple months. Bags under my eyes pulling overnighters. Watching  “Not so reality TV”. It’s fair to say I was addicted y’all. …

Guest Blogger: Pastor Massiel Vargas(PT2)

It was’nt until we began planning our wedding that I realized there were things inside of me that I had to take care before we started our new journey. I somehow encountered the fact that I was going to shortly be moving in with someone I’ve never lived with, and this commitment was a “forever…

July’s Monthly Devotional: Give It Back Already

Well, here is a dumb question you might answer if I asked; If you had a company car and decided to pursue a new job, would you have to give the car back? So many people would say “Duh Des that’s not a difficult question. Of course,  I would relinquish the car!” However, why is…

Oh No: I Found Hidden Anger in ME!

Guys! Your girl has ISSUES, yes I said it. I do my best to keep everything as transparent as island water.  Never do I try to persuade people I’m all healed up and perfect. Not HERE! Continuously, I’m going through different challenges and learning from them and writing all about it. I have anger issues, and …

June Monthly Devotional: A Prophetic Word

God gave me this sweet prophetic word. I pray it blessed you as much as it blessed me. “I’m your advocate” carries a deeper meaning than when God first whispered it to me. In fact, it isn’t just 3 little words anymore. Those 3 little words say, “God-centered Advocacy” which means there is no need…

Foster Care: Enjoying Mother’s Day Without A Mom

An invisible wound each year I would re-pick. No matter how much new skin grew, I would tear it off to once again to feel those overwhelming emotions of sadness. Each year was the same two choices; either I overwork, or sleep the day away. As many prepared for a day of honor for their mothers, I…

Hello Spring Reading: Decluttering Your Mind and Soul

Spring has to be my favorite season. It’s the season for jean jackets and walks to local coffee shops.  In this season, many people focus on throwing out old coaches, vintage clothes from the ’90’s and much more. However, what is overlooked often is the inner declutter we need in our minds and hearts. I’m…
