Do Not Judge Me Based on Who I Vote For

It would be an understatement to say that people’s convictions, thoughts, and feelings are intensely passionate regarding this upcoming election. Now that both National Conventions have aired, it is safe to say that people are more opinionated than ever. My blog has never been a platform for political accountability and I do not plan on […]

In a World of Darkness, Let Us Show Each Other Hope.

With all that is occuring in our world today, it is easy to be passionately opinionated, convictedly judgemental, and overall, uncompassionate due to fears and anxiety or where our world may venture to as our children grow older in a world of darkness and despair. As we try to commemorate a day dedicated to Martin […]

Why Do People Do Bad Things?

I was having a crap day. I was feeling sad, angry, and disappointed. I was feeling frustrated that people couldn’t care enough about others to make them feel safe, protected, and mostly loved.

Enough is Enough

Let’s be clear. I am Christian. And, a practicing Christian at that. I attend church weekly, and when possible, even daily. I pray everyday. All day. I believe in the Bible and teach my children the theology I believe. I follow the Ten Commandments to the best of my ability. Most of my library contains […]

If We Focused on Modesty in the Fashion World, Where Would the Self-Respecting Women Go?

Let me start off by admitting that yes, I love fashion. I love clothes. I remember at a young age being conscientious of what I wore and how exactly I presented myself. I take pride in being well-dressed. You will rarely see me leave my home in sweats, despite being a mother of four and […]

Dear Charise, I Do Not Want to Deal with the Transgender Issue

Dear Charise, I am very upset. My children and I were watching a family movie on ABCFamily and in the middle of the movie, they aired a commercial depicting families going through transgender issues of children dealing with their parent’s sexual reassignment. I was so shocked and surprised as my older child (9 years old) […]

Too Much Talk

Words on magazines “talking” to you. Pastors talking to you, making attempts to guide you in life. Family and friends constantly talking to, with, and at […]
