Harold on the other hand says ” I thought:  ‘My she [...]

Moving from Devastating Divorce to New Divine Destiny

When I first got divorced from my college sweetheart back in 2008 after 14 years of marriage and 19 years of friendship, I thought I’d never ever marry anyone BUT him again.  I mean, I was believing God for restoration and knew He had definitely presented the opportunities, but for more reasons than one, that just [...]

Deliverance From The Sting of Divorce

A few weeks ago Tuesday September 6, 2011, something SPECTACULAR HAPPENED! I woke up in my bed and NEITHER of my daughters was there! For me, that was a divine moment that really represented a point of deliverance for my family. As I searched to figure out what the date was and why ALL OF [...]

A Single Parent’s Declaration : ” I Still Have Joy!”

I absolutely hate being a single parent. Sort of! I know that may be strong words for some, but for me, it’s a reality. Especially because it was something I never intended to be or expected to experience. I mean each of my daughters birth were “planned” as much as two parents can plan and [...]

The Love Language of Refusal

When I read a story the Huffington Post published about Roger Ebert, debuting his ‘new digital” voice on Oprah and him overcoming throat cancer, by the end I was in tears. It has to be the perfect mix of light-hearted humor, endurance and true love. Robert Ebert hasn’t spoken since 2006. Now days he can’t [...]
