You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is your only option. I fight the enemy day in and day out. When I don’t think the enemy is attacking my life He is when I least expect it He does. Continue reading “#CupcakesForDinner | GirlTalk on Staying Strong For Yourself”

My very first time at The Potter’s House I really enjoyed myself if you haven’t taken the time out I recommend going for your own experience you will be blessed in The Lord. This church is so huge I don’t think I had enough memory to capture everything I saw that’s why it’s best to visit when you can.
Guest Services was so nice to me to have blessed me with a welcome gift which was 2 previous Sunday Morning Services on CD’s, a bookmark for T. D. Jakes Show, a reminder card to remind me that I am Blessed and Loved at The Potter’s House and a welcome packet discovering The Potter’s House. Although my seat was reserved by Cora Jakes Coleman finding a good seat wasn’t a hassle and I’m blessed and highly favored. This weekend has been about nothing but #Thanks
It is so much you can do at The Potter’s House I actually grab a copy of The Potter’s House School of Ministry Licensed Ministerial Training Syllabus & Schedule Overview for their Two-Year Program hmmm it’s definitely worth the relocation because you have to take the training on-site at the actual location. I think this is a good way to keep track and record your progress some churches decide when they think you are ready I guess.
Message: Checked You 2 Bless You
Speaker: Bishop T. D. Jakes
Scripture: John 15:7-8
The difference between burial and planting is the one who put the seed in the ground! You are the most powerful where you are the most connected. There is no way to get to the fruit of an answered prayer life without a cutting. Sacrifice isn’t sacrificing if you don’t have options. Don’t be one that has a relationship with the promises of God, but not a relationship with Him. When He knows you see Him as more important than the mantle He wants to give you, He will open up the windows of Heaven to bless you! For all you have endured, He is about to release fruit in your life. In the abiding process, is the transformation of your desires and what you value. The Father gets glory out of you being fruitful because He put the seed in you. The moment you are more in love with the blesser than the blessing, He will begin to make you more fruitful. You may be in the midst of a test right now, but if He checked you He is going to bless you!
I want to give an Honor to God who is ahead of my life and God bless everyone in their respective places. I am so excited to have visited Ebenezer Baptist Church the very exact church Dr. Martin Luther King Jr preached at under the leadership of the Williams and King families. The focus of their church was food, shelter, and health needs. During the civil rights movement in the 50’s and 60’s Ebenezer gained global exposure for education, voter registration, and other civic reforms.
Rev. King Sr. father of Dr. King Jr. loved his family and his church home the same love he gave his children he gave his membership.
This church has significant value and this is where King’s grandfather and father have served as pastors during the 1960’s, Dr. King severed as co-pastor, and after his assassination, King’s brother took over as co-pastor. Just like any other church that has activities, bible studies, meetings and more were led by King’s grandmother and mother. I can imagine what it is today only if the legacy is still being celebrated. The women of impact and influence that should come through and pay their respects. I mean I would invest and fly out to celebrate.
Annual Women’s Day hosted by Coretta Scott King will be celebrating its 55th year October 2017
I can’t believe I was standing in the church where Mama King was fatally shot in 1974 along with Deacon Edward Boykin and 3 others were wounded. My God, I pray for their families and loved ones. We have to pray for our churches and keep them covered.

The Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall has the exact same appearance it did in the 1960’s when you walk in the church there is audio of Dr. King speeches and sermons. I believe if you went there early enough you can pray over your seat and set back to listen to the exact words Dr. King has preached. I’m not sure if there’s a time limit to your visit but it closes at 5pm.
Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve… You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve… You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. And you can be that servant. Martin Luther King Jr. “The Drum Major Instinct” sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church, February 4, 1968
The biographical exhibits are breath-taking at the King Center this is the place I cried right before going into the Rosa Parks room. The King Center is where both the tombs of Dr. King and wife Mrs. Coretta Scott King are Reflecting.

I have never had the problem of watching what I use on my face but as I get older it’s like I have to read the labels on EVERYTHING I use. Some suggestions I read were “use creams with retinol to eliminate the blockage” a dermatologist in Glamour special edition.
I have tried to reach out to 3 different dermatologists in my local area and for some reason, they are not taking new patients (smh emoji) I have given up and I’m taking matters in my own hand until otherwise. One receptionist told me because of retirement the dermatologist will not be taking new patients I’m thinking does he have a website will he blog. (shrugs)
How do you feel about splurging on pro treatments?
When I reached out to Beauty + Media Personality // Digital Hair + Beauty Contributor for Essence Samantha Callender we talked skin care and believe me this girl knows her ish it’s like she consulted me via Instagram and gave me some recommendations.
Here are the products she recommends for melanin beauty along with some tips to keep your skin flawless.
- Don’t use lotion on your face.
- Don’t sleep in your makeup.
- Use face masks too- charcoal and pore focused mud masks will draw out the stuff in your skin, sheet masks (paper ones) or for hydration which I don’t believe in masks for hydration use a cream or gel to hydrate.
- Most makeup wipes have alcohol in them which fu*ks your skin up to so I try to just use a wash cloth instead.
I hope this was helpful to anyone who has skin suffering in silence again feel free to reach and follow for any others questions.
Travel: My dream travel is to get away somewhere that will focus on body wellness I look for peace, relaxing, soothing, and rejuvenation. I have been inspired by many traveling ideas. One of my traveling highlights is to “study out the country” I look forward to an unforgettable week of writing and touring. I’m sure many writers can agree with blogging from “Bed” with “Breakfast” creating writing assignments for myself with a scent of fresh air can release tension. You’ll probably breath differently when you acknowledge your stress level and finding new ways to stretch. Stay encouraged by your mentors and offer mentorship to others that will help guide them with perfecting their craft as well as your own.
What’s in my “Travel Bag” my bag is big enough to hold my 13” Mac Book Pro, Chanel makeup bag, Louis Vuitton pocket agenda, Women’s Health Magazine, Victoria Secret body lotion “Heavenly” Anointed Oil with Biblical Spices used in Exodus 30:22-25 from Israel made in Israel, and Versace sunglasses to keep a low profile along with many more products I carry around for comfort.
