Successfully Single

Though it’s only been 1.5 years since my ‘official” divorce was final, I have to admit, it’s been a doozy relearning how to be Single. Thank God,  along this journey, He’s given me some strategies to overcoming crisis, I’ll be sharing in my upcoming book: “Life Interrupted” When you’re used to sharing 19 years of [...]

I was watching TV one day during my “me time”  and stumbled upon “Let’s Talk About, Pep” the VH-1 reality show featuring Sandra “Pepa” Denton of Salt-n-Pepa fame. Last I hear and saw, “Salt” Cheryl (James) Wray is actually a born-again Christian, who’s preparing for her first gospel album. Pep, on the other hand is [...]
