The Masters of Manipulation will have you thinking you are doing the right thing, but deep inside you will question yourself are you really doing the right thing?

Manipulation is like a feather. Surprisingly soft, light, airy, tickling your emotions with a charming touch. Long with many strands of ways to capture your heart.

All of a sudden you get stuck by the blunt end of the feather (manipulation) and it hurts!

You begin to question yourself. Why does it hurt so bad when I enjoyed its touch?

We Are His People

Yes, there has been one tragedy after another, but death has not defeated us. We may not know why this happens to us, but we will one day. You know who you are and you know who you belong to. We are God’s People. ~ Daily Devotional #God’sPeople

I can not even think about pursuing my own goals in these moments. I’m speechless with where this world is going. My focus has changed to the people who are literally suffering.

God restore them in their brokenness. When it’s my time to move, prepare me to help that next person.

You Make Him Happy

The Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself. I Samuel 12:22 ESV

Why would someone go into a hotel and start shooting into a crowd of people from the 32nd floor of a Hotel? #Route91🙏🏽 #LasVegas #HatredHurts

I am speechless.

Filling the Emptiness

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1 ESV

Help Puerto Rico

My friend and I meticulously planned a trip to Puerto Rico two months prior to devastating hurricane Maria. We toured the city of San Juan and Old San Juan and enjoyed every moment of our days.

It’s shocking to know that now, the island is out of food, with little water and desperate to still restore power to millions of citizens.

I will keep praying for you Puerto Rico that God will help you to restore your land. Stay strong. Help is on the way.

Post Hurricane Harvey… I know I keep mentioning post Hurricane Harvey, but I have not fully let go or forgotten what my city, family and friends have endured.

I was led to leave social media for a week or two and now I am trying hard to fast and pray my way through. I have seen so many people who are still in need and I feel so helpless. I am continuing to pray that the Lord meets their needs physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Praying for Puerto Rico

In the midst of all of that, I am reminded that I am an author, a poet, and a creative writer. I also self published and released my 2nd book called The Love Experience.

A very close friend of mine shared my book with his coworkers and he text me this today.

“My coworker is shaking her head and asking if this is about her, while reading your book. She said she had to go back and read the passage twice.”

She was reading …

Chapter Five ~ Wanderlust

She had a strong desire to travel. She could have gone anywhere in the world, but she didn’t. She wanted his world.

I have put my desires behind me now, but I do not think I will give up on being an author. I am preparing for my next book signing Saturday, October 14th from 12 noon – 3:00 pm at Half Price Books/ Sugarland.

Miss you all. See you around.

Oh and by the way, my book is available on

Lord you are honorable. Thank you for your gift of salvation. During this time of repentance, have mercy upon us.

I left my social media lifestyle to spend more valuable time to reflect on God’s glory. Repenting from spending too much time on the web instead of Jesus.

Post Hurricane Harvey, I have witnessed several close friends and family that said, I survived.

But it wasn’t just us that was severely impacted by these hurricanes. The Caribbean’s are also in great need of assistance. Mexico suffered a major earthquake and they are still on a rescue mission looking for their loved ones who may have lost their lives.

Stay close to the Almighty One. The Alpha and the Omega.
