I'm Writing a Book!!! Yay!!!

Hey there! Did you get excited when you read the blog title? Well, I did! Why? Because I'm pursuing my dreams and writing my first book. Yipppeeee! I originally started this blog as a way to start writing more frequently and as a lead-in to writing my book. It has been a little over two years since I started blogging and I am turning my dreams into my reality.

My first book is entitled "The Gift of Truth: A 30 Day Devotional to Help You Transform Your Life through the Truth of God's Word." It's basically a 30-day collection of short devotionals that will encourage and inspire you to be a better you. I have incorporated some of my blog posts but have added to them and also added meditation and reflection exercises as well. I am uber excited about this! I don't have a release date but just know that I'm working diligently and it will be released in it is perfect timing.

This is my first book venture and I have a lot to learn so please keep me in your prayers. Sure I want my book to be a best seller but I also want my book to bless the lives of each person who reads it. I am believing for limitless possibilities, uncommon favor, and most importantly for God to be glorified. I just wanted to share my good news with you. I pray that you are encouraged to pursue your dreams as well! Let's go! ♥

Here is a small excerpt from my devotional:

Truth Encounter 2016!!!

I'm a little late, but I wanted to share a few pictures from the last Truth Encounter Women's Empowerment Seminar that was held on March 11th! We had about 40 women to join us and we had an amazing time! It was truly a time of TRUTH, TRANSPARENCY, and TRANSFORMATION! Take a look...

And more...

Are you conscious?

So as you all know, I am a word person. I love words. The word that has been in my spirit today is "consciousness." I am currently in Washington, DC for work and I was able to meet up with a couple of old co-workers for dinner this evening. When I got back to my hotel, I began to reflect on how good it felt to talk to other smart and ambitious women of color who were also conscious! I don't know about you but I have had many painful conversations with intelligent people who didn't have a clue of what was happening in the "real world". I loathe close-mindedness so "conscious conversations"are so refreshing for me! 

Conscious means being aware of yourself and the world around you. It also means "being sensitive to something or being awake, not asleep or insensible," As I pondered on this defintion and my dinner conversation, I started to think of all of the people who are alive but are unconscious. They are not aware of themselves or the world around them. They are physically awake but socially, culturally, and spiritually asleep! Just look around you, people are asleep! Our young men are dying daily! Our young women are using their bodies more than their minds! People are leaving the church by the droves to follow false doctrines! Donald Trump could potentially be our president! We have to wake up!

My question to you is, "are YOU conscious?" Are you fully aware of who you are and whose you are?  Are you fully aware of what is happening around you? Are your friends conscious? It's important that we always take the time to analyze ourselves and be honest about where we are. Being in denial only makes things worst. We are living in a time where it is imperative that we be awake and alert. We have to make sound decisions as it concerns our lives. If you have been sleeping, count this as a wake-up call! Rise and shine because the world needs you!

PS: If you haven't had any "conscious conversations" lately, you may need to find you some new friends! Surround yourself with what you want to become :-)
