Wife, Worker, and Workman

Considering I have not shared much on this blog in a while, I decided to give a glimpse of what life has been over the past year. 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽

Year of Return – The Heart to Heart Album

I was so excited to see their cover art on apple music. So excited, I decided I would write about it! Here’s what I loved (and didn’t) about Crossfire’s 2019 Neo-Soul Album; Heart to Heart.

Sufficiency

Before I moved into a new home with my husband, I wasn’t the decision maker. “Mommy and Daddy” had everything on lockdown...

Rebirth

...Even with this blog post, I had decided to write it three weeks ago but since that moment, I had all the right excuses not to sit down and write it...

My peace, my weapon

I was fully ignorant of the fact that there is always a battle going on. I’m not talking about the physical unrest, killings and hunger that are going on today at different parts of the world; no. I’m talking about in our minds and in our hearts- daily.  I didn’t realize that when I got … Continue reading My peace, my weapon

Bathsheba; wife, subject & queen

He had a devoted army, and loyal subjects. However, in 2nd Samuel, we see this: “…it happened in the … Continue reading Bathsheba; wife, subject & queen
