Behind The Smile

They've said that most people who've cracked a smile are often veneering their truest emotions. They conceal it in hopes that people will not know their truth, because the Truth HURTS! They hate to display emotion so they are not perceived as vulnerable and weak. They launder the reality they feel about others... they hate them but... Continue Reading →

Dear Preggo

Dear Preggo,You’re the real MVP!  As a result of overfamiliarity, you definitely go without being properly appreciated.  At times you go uncared for, unheard and unappreciated.  We don’t thank you enough for your sacrifice.  You sacrifice your body, your career, and at times you sacrifice your life. We don’t thank you enough for your willingness to embark on the journey.  We've... Continue Reading →

Dear Me Too

Dear Me Too, Way too many of us have been suffering in silence.  We've accepted and allowed silence to be a weapon to cripple us.  Meanwhile, the most potent weapon we own is our voice.  It is time to use our voice to free us; indict and incarcerate the assailant.  What's the point of owning a weapon if we are...

Dear Terrified One

Dear Terrified One, Someone once said, "The higher your climb, the better the view.”  Come on girl, get up here.  The view just keeps getting better and better.  Don't be afraid to do it.  Caution is good... but too much caution causes you never to amount to much.

Dear Lady with the Toxic Family

Dear Lady with the Toxic Family, By now I know that you are tired of your family and all the anxiety they trigger.  Family is important so I could never tell you to cut ties with them; and besides, that is too divisive.  What I can say is set boundaries.  Don’t allow them to overstep your bounds.  Put your...

Dear Woman who picked the Wrong Man

Dear Woman Who Picked the Wrong Man, Shit!This is where I draw a blank.  There is too much at stake for me to give you common and generic advice.  Do I tell you to leave him, knowing very well that you want to stay?  Should I remind you of all the reasons why you must go NOW?... Continue Reading →

Dear Woman Wounded by Church

Dear Women In Politics

Dear Woman in Politics,They used to say, “This is a Man’s World.”  Now we say “But it would be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl.”  While this seat is often occupied by men, it can also be occupied by you.

Dear Baby Mama Vol 2.

Dear Baby Mama, The last letter that I addressed to you got into the hands of someone else.  She reached out on your behalf to remind me there is “pain and hurt” behind your actions.  She also summoned to my memory that you’re the victim and not the villain. So, I’m addressing another letter to you... Continue Reading →

Dear Woman Behind the Influential Man

Dear Woman Behind the Influential Man,  Roots often go unnoticed.  Meanwhile, the fruits are enjoyed.  The stage crew goes overlooked all the time.  Meanwhile, the production and actors are praised.  And you, my fair lady, are no different.  Your husband gets all the accolades and you go unremarked.  If no one ever tells you this, thank you!  Thank you for how well...

Dear Prayer Warrior

Dear Prayer Warrior, One of life's hacks is having a praying lifestyle.  You understand this so well.  I find it quite admirable.  But, have you ever prayed for something and with time, you completely forgot about it?  Ever prayed for something and when you got it you didn’t want it as much as you did when you prayed...

Dear Woman who Hates her Stepdaughter

Dear Mother who Hates Her Stepdaughter,  Ou, Chile!  I heard that you hate your stepdaughter because you fear that she will preoccupy all of your husband’s love and that your daughter will compete with his daughter.  You aren’t wrong for feeling the way you do; there is no judgement here.  But I hope you can channel a healthier... Continue Reading →

Dear Sugar Baby

Dear Sugar Baby,  What I’m not going to do is judge you.  As a matter of fact, this isn’t even my business.  So, pardon me if I’m coming off a bit condemnatory. Trading sexual favors for a lavish way of life is not good commerce.  It shows a reflection of exploitation, prostitution, and who knows, maybe trafficking.  This lifestyle... Continue Reading →

Dear BabyMama with the Drama

Dear BabyMama with the Drama,  I know you feel an intense or passionate dislike seeing the man who destroyed your life live his best life.

Dear Sister in Law

Dear Sister-in-Law, If you could be so kind to just treat me right… I would appreciate it. It may be that you don’t feel like your brother made the right choice.

The Dependent Me

The Dependent Me The Dependent Me is me operating in my true blueprint.  While independence is praiseworthy and dependency becomes this abnormality, I'm starting to see that being independent has been handicapping our society instead of freeing it. It evokes in people an "I can do life by myself" attitude.  Phrases like "I can raise... Continue Reading →

The Incarcerated Me

The Incarcerated Me  The Incarcerated Me is in a personal prison.  My very own prison that I have built with my own mind.  NO ONE can hurt me but ME.  The doors are locked.  No one can help me... I'm my worst critic - nothing I do is ever good enough.  Excellence isn't good enough... Continue Reading →

The Damaged Me

The Damaged Me  The Damaged Me is held in captivity by my pain, my past, and my people.  Together, they have a way to affect me with paralysis... unable to move forward and inhibits the hope for a better future.

The Online Me

The Online me  The Online Me is really not who I am... it is who I wish I could be... the me that I want people to see, know, and remember.  The online me is a facade, veneered to look appealing and at times to be hungered after. I've dissolved that if I can fake... Continue Reading →

Broken Daughter

Well in advance, we know our parent(s) before venturing into the world meeting new people. From an early age we comprehend that our parent's role is to protect and nurture. Innately, we start to imitate our parents.Wearing my mother's pearls around my neck, barely walking in her oversized shoes, and applying her Ruby Woo lipstick... Continue Reading →

Broken Mother

Women are patterned to carry eggs, ovulate, menstruate, procreate, breastfeed, nurture, and MULTI-TASK. A Broken Mother can only offer the shattered pieces of herself. That's all she’s got to give. Broken mirrors and broken windows are often ineffective. In the same vein, broken mothers may not be as operative as they ought to be. We've... Continue Reading →

#Entanglement

The word on the street is that Jada Pinkett-Smith had an affair; and all hell broke loose. When celebrities show a little transparency or expose a transgression or a misguided judgment, there is this veiled or equivocal reflection on their reputation. But in actuality, every married person is “entangled” in their own marital dysfunctions, whether... Continue Reading →

Broken Crayons Vol 2

The Genesis of my blog began with Broken Crayons. I talked about how many of us limit the potential of the crayon because it is broken. I dared my readers to see their potential despite their brokenness. Nearly three years later, I'm becoming more fully aware that brokenness has paralyzed many women from living their lives...

Joel Delince – Stronger With Him

No other man can walk in Joel’s shoes. Sometimes, while he sleeps, I just stare at him… yup,  you guessed it. (Wink-wink!) The story before I liked him … We were friends, really good friends actually. We attended the same university, the same church, and we lived a few blocks from each other. Our commutes...

Jeff Lindor – Stronger With Him

Our culture seems to have tolerated the world just as we found it. Few people have dared to face that lion and bring about reform. Jeff is one of the few. Wherever he is, there are no stones left unturned. He unsettles the dust. He has always been someone who cared for the community. All... Continue Reading →

Pierre Azor – Stronger With Him

Being the firstborn of a family, there are a plethora of burdens and obligations that one is imposed to carry. Being both a sibling and a parent to your siblings becomes an inevitable side effect. Firstly, you are more susceptible to your parents’ tough discipline. Then, there is the burden of going places because you have... Continue Reading →

James Holly – Stronger With Him

I first met James at a revival where he preached a sermon titled, “Stand Out, Don’t Fit In!” I must say that he lives up to that phrase. Not long after that, he became a member at my church and some time after, was elevated to Assistant Pastor. The first time we went out to... Continue Reading →

Yves Pierre – Stronger With Him

In the epoch of the exposures of pastor’s scandalous and reprehensible reputations, Yves Pierre upholds an unsullied reputation. Seventeen years ago, I walked into this church and never walked out. He managed to plant a church and for over 40 years, has been serving hundreds of people in Brooklyn NY. (Kudos!) He created a space... Continue Reading →

Duvenky Azzure – Stronger With Him

Azzure is a TERROR; let’s start with that. Growing up with him, he terrorized his siblings and I, like that time he put a live horseshoe crab under my bed while I was sleeping; or that time he swallowed a goldfish alive. Come to think of it, we would have it no other way. Without... Continue Reading →

Irventz Garçon – Stronger with Him

Catch Irventz on “Love Talks with the Garçons” co-starring his wife Anne, as they bring us behind the scenes of their marriage while giving advice, support, and hope.

Renaldo Connor Jr. – Stronger With Him

I’ve had the privilege of changing his diapers and a greater privilege of bossing him around, just a tad. Renaldo Jr. is a little brother who could very well be granted the Big Brother Award. From the early age of 3, we discovered that he didn’t carry the “selfish” trait. If he went to the... Continue Reading →

Stronger with Him

For an evolved society so fascinated by and invested in progress, I find it contradictory that we’ve become a populous that have lost… our men. For far too long, we have suffered a shortage of good quality men. There is this disequilibrium, a higher demand than supply of good-mannered and natured men. But ladies, I... Continue Reading →

The Double Sided Story

The Double Sided Story As authors or fiction tellers, we hold the pen to a world of outcomes and possibilities. We get to tell the story how we want it to be told. Yet, the reader can interpret the story differently. In life, people often retell a story from their vantage point. Hence the adage,... Continue Reading →

Quarantine

Honestly... COVID19 is the reason I know the word "QUARANTINE". In fact, the first time I used it in a sentence, I butchered it. My husband had me repeat the sentence 3 times hoping I would catch it. Each time, I said the same thing. He ended up correcting me and we both had a... Continue Reading →

Hope for World

Do you remember Job? He has a whole book in the bible dedicated to him. Most people find the book too convoluted to understand. When I first read it I marveled at how God would allow him to go through these severe suffering. He lost everything he had. His children, his wealth, his possession, even... Continue Reading →

It is not ok… but it is going to be ok

These times are hard times, harder than anything we could ever imagine. It's been disturbing and distraught. I've ran out of comforting words to give to my friends. I've stopped listening to the news. I've been wiping and sanitizing surfaces like crazy. I've washed my hands more times than I can count. I've been eating... Continue Reading →

Make the Best of these days

Make the best of these days is really ironic. Where do we find any "best" during those days? The days have brought winds of emotions, complications and frustrations. As the story unfolds we have lost people and the people remaining have lost hope. Hope... A thing in the past. Were we a populous who put... Continue Reading →

For the Grieving World

These past couple of weeks have been a CALAMITY...  ALL of this to me are scenes directly from a film as seen on TV. Seeing in right before my eyes is SURREAL and UNSETTLING. We've heard SHUTDOWN, QUARANTINE, COVID POSITIVE, RIP so much we've become completely numb. Social distancing for some is much needed but... Continue Reading →

Heartless Humanity

I've watched one of the most gut-wrenching videos today. A man who is expressing his happiness that Kobe Bryant passed away. Apparently, it is a "good story" the story of the athlete's passing. His reason, "he raped a girl." Is this what our society have become??? - a heartless generation full of vengeance and emptied... Continue Reading →

Dear You

Dear You, Life is more like a dystopia than utopia, imperfect rather than perfect - with injustice, grief, disease, wrath everywhere.

Dear B!@#$%

Dear B!@#$% We ALL have been called that at least once in our lifetime, behind our backs, in someone's thoughts, in public, on television and even in church.

Dear Woman on Gov’t Assistance

Dear Woman with Addiction

Dear Woman with the Addiction, We are entering a judgment free zone. EVERY woman has an addiction, every single one of us.

It brings us... Continue Reading →

Dear Cheating Wife

Dear Cheating Wife, It used to be a myth that only men cheat. You've completely debunked this tale.

I'm sending you this letter to request you... Continue Reading →

You get one salary to be a mom, a dad, the cleaning lady, a tutor, the laundry lady, a therapist, a chef, the annoying lady, the alarm clock, the breadwinner, the unfair lady, a mediator, an inspector gadget.

Dear Woman wanting Implants

Dear Woman wanting Implants, I want you to know, you were born with enough. You don't have to add to "you". Extra boobs, bigger lips, extra posterior are but unnecessary burdens.

Dear Feminist

Dear Feminist,  Feminism has been converted to more of a “trend” and “brand” than a movement. To the movement, kudos! To the brand, who profess no need for a man, I'm not taking shots, just food for thought: Do you really want equal rights with men? Do you want to do exactly what they can... Continue Reading →

Dear Virgin

Dear Virgin, In this over-sexualized society and pop culture,  it is frowned upon to be a woman of virtue, practicing abstinence. "If you aren't having sex... something must be wrong with you or clearly no man finds you worthy for the act." Contrary to popular belief, purity is still a virtue. Though purity is depreciated,...
