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. …

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…

      You would think that my life was perfect if you got a glimpse of me today. Well, it comes to no surprise life knows how to throw some funny curve balls at you! After being engaged to the love of my life, I feared most days that things seemed to have been…

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…

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…

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…

May Monthly Devotional: Unclaimed Joy

So many of us are walking around unaware of unclaimed properties we own. It could be an ancestor who left us land, or a previous job having unclaimed funding for us. Whatever it is; its something that is ours but we do not have the understanding of ownership to claim it. This happens much in…

Stay Connected with God While Traveling

Whether for work or leisure, traveling can be super fun. Whether you are traveling to a place you are familiar with, or a place of the unknown, there is always an adventure to be found. Leaving things you need at home can sometimes detour your whole trip. Without realization, many times when we travel, we…

I’m Turning 30 & Couldn’t be Happier

As a kid, I always wanted to be older.  I guess that’s why 30 is so darn exciting for me.  I knew each year would be greater.  With increasing age comes lessons, wisdom and new levels of responsibilities.  What’s even cooler is Jesus started his public ministry at the age of 30 and I believe…
