Intersectionality 

My Black Facebook friends are raging My White Facebook friends are silent I’m constantly torn between feeling like a sell out  Or possibly appearing violent.  Being a young college-educated Christian Black girl  Has to be one of the most complex identities in the world   

It would be easier if…

   Here we are, me and my littlest boo (let’s call her Five because that’s how old she is) sitting in the basement building a puzzle. She was so cute stacking the pieces of her anatomy puzzle. You see that pic at the top? The pieces stack according to how our bodies are made fromContinue reading “It would be easier if…”

You Have to Try!

Apparently, I’m pretty flexible compared to other people. I learned this because i tried bikram yoga and the instructor commented on it a couple times. Then when I started crossfit, the first night the coach asked me if I had an athletic background because of my flexibility. He complimented me on it every session forContinue reading “You Have to Try!”

Perception is just that.

When I worked at a preschool in Lansing my boss would play the same cd every day. There was a song with a line that I could’ve sworn said “God, you shed Your blood on Calvary.” But I’m fairly certain that the song wasn’t even in English. Even still, that’s all I could hear onContinue reading “Perception is just that.”

It’s rude to YOU, not to them, because it’s normal there.

Different cultures do and accept different things. Seems obvious, right? But for most people it isn’t. During my freshman year of college, I was conversing with two friends about a proposal that was on the table at my school. A group of students wanted to make all the restrooms unisex so that transgendered students wouldn’tContinue reading “It’s rude to YOU, not to them, because it’s normal there.”

“From Sea To Shining Sea”

Today’s post is nothing deep. I’m just sharing with you the beauty that our Creator made. You’re looking at mountains that haven’t been covered in snow in 30 years. You’re looking at the city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. You’re looking at the Sea of Galilee, the place Jesus stepped out onContinue reading ““From Sea To Shining Sea””

Blood Memory

Let’s consider this a Part Two to God’s Gene Redeems. Did you read it? OhCAE. Let’s move on. About eight months ago, I was introduced to the term “Blood Memory”. Basically, it means the trauma we face gets passed down to our children in their blood. There’s science to back it up. When people areContinue reading “Blood Memory”

Home Is Where the Heart [of God] Is

Last year my life changed a lot. The city I live in, the job I do, the people I live with, the church I attend, the work I do at church… All different now. All the changes happened pretty close to the same time. That season of so much transition left me feeling lost andContinue reading “Home Is Where the Heart [of God] Is”
