My Dream

I had this dream where I'm standing in the parking lot of my daughter's school and it's raining so hard that the water was past my knees, I'm holding my son in my arms and I started running across the parking lot towards my car and the sky split in half, it was the most beautiful dream.

“Who Am I…?”

"I am not my title"
The world defines people by the title they hold and often times we take on the worlds definition of who we are and that's an emotional and spiritual roller coaster that I just can't ride.

I'm gave up the need to say look at me, at what I have done, my value, worth and identity is in Jesus not in what I have done because the truth is, we can do nothing without him anyway.


"I am not what I have"

I refuse to let  things  determine my identity. The square footage of my house, what kind of hand bag I carry  to what kind of car I drive. I'm not a hater, it's a blessing to have nice things, I just know that we are blessed to be a blessing.

                                                     "I am not my looks"

Most of us brown girls struggled at some point in our lives with having dark skin because the world told us we were not pretty.  I say to my brown sisters, God created you on purpose and loves you so you should love you too.

We all want to look good and that's all good but I won't get caught up in the world's ideas of what's pretty ... Let's have a pretty heart.

I am loved by Jesus ...

Dance with life

Happy Thursday!

I'm not afraid of change. Life is moving it's feet fast and I've decided to stand up and dance with it. I release everything that has held me back. I feel empowered to be my best and say yes to life, open my heart and give it away.  The future can be scary because it holds the greatest potential for pain, and rejection. The unknown lives there ,  But it also has the greatest potential for happiness, joy, and love. It unlocks the door  to  adventures and opportunities.

Body, mind, spirit

We may not be able to choose what happens to us at all times, but we can choose how we respond, what we put in our bodies and what we think about.

My Body

I make choices daily to eat raw veggies because it makes me feel better.

My Mind

I have learned to look at life with excitement. Create beautiful surroundings that make me smile.

My Spirit

My spirit is a reflection of my character. Faith, prayer ... Because of Jesus.

What is life without passion?

I enjoy many things but I have passion about my health, I'm fascinated with real food and what it can do for the body.

I'm not the best cook and don't always enjoy cooking but I get real satisfaction from feeding my family healthy foods.

All it takes is one small step towards a healthier lifestyle ...

Want healthy skin?

Growing up in the foster care system as a child, I was not introduced to many veggies and the few I was intorduced to, had me pinching my nose and gagging. I know that I make such a big deal out of drinking green smoothies that you might think you will become "Wonder Woman" if you drink them.

Wonder Woman
 I do have Softer,  less breakout-prone skin, more energy and mental clarity,
Green smoothies provide a rich source of minerals thanks to the dark, leafy greens. All of the bone-building nutrients that we ladies need.


 Green smoothies use the whole fruit and vegetable so that you get all the fiber and nutrition. Fiber is essential for keeping things moving.

Want Healthy, Glowing Skin?  Your skin will literally glow and any acne will vanish. Plant-based meals, vegetables, and fruits are incredibly hydrating.

1. Almonds
  Almonds have been considered as an anti-aging food because of the high content of Vitamin E. It is great for healthy skin, hair and nails. We need Vitamin E to protect the cells from  free radicals

2. Walnuts
Walnuts are a rich source of Vitamin E  which will help your skin look great.

3. Cucumber
  Excellent anti-aging food that can help improve tired and dehydrated skin. The high water content and high amounts of silica present helps to get a smooth and glowing skin.

 4. Berries
"Antitioxidants that are present in berries such as blueberries, and cranberries and in strawberry, can help keep your skin vibrant and glowing."
 5. Green tea
  A very healthy substitute for caffeine drinks and are packed with anti-oxidants.

 6. Sunflower seeds
This is a remarkable anti-aging food and a Vitamin E and selenium powerhouse with very effective youth-enhancing qualities.
 A handful of sunflower seeds  will help you look younger,   and improve skin elasticity because it is extremely rich in Vitamin E.

Keep it healthy ...
