The Reid's Take Italy!

Ever since we first started dating my husband Ken and I always said that we wanted our relationship to be filled with adventure, including but not limited to travel, new activities, meeting new people, trying new foods, etc. We even made a hashtag for our relationship on our first date: #TheAdventuresOfKenAndNelli. We have definitely lived up to that hashtag because the 2 weeks of my life has refinitely been an adventure.  My husband and I finally took our first trip together since we got married. We love to travel but haven't had the opportunity to since last summer (before our wedding) so this was much needed…

Marriage 101: Where are you planting your roots?

I am now 10 months into my marriage and I can safely say that I married the right man this time. As many of you know I am divorced and I have been pretty open about my sharing my the reasons along with my entire testimony.

Thank God for Chapter 30

Welp guys, today is the Big THREE OH (30) and I could not be more grateful! 🙌🏾 For allot of people I know 30 is a hard pill to swallow. My mom and grandmother said they both shed some tears on their 30th birthday because it was the first time they ever felt like they were old. 😫 Now I can not promise there won't be any tears but I will say that I do not feel old. Honestly I feel like my life is just beginning. Like 30 is where life is actually going to start getting good…

On this Day... 3/29/2016

One of my favorite things on facebook is the 'On This Day' feature. I love logging in and seeing what I was doing, thinking, or snapping 📸 on this very day last year, 2 years ago, and maybe even 6 or 7 years ago. When I looked at this feature today I was excited because I realized that today is a really special day. On this day, 2 years ago, I boarded a flight to Dallas meet my Husband, Ken, for the first time. I haven't really talked much about how we met or our journey to marriage so I want to take today to start sharing our love story...

2017 | My Year of Faith

Happy New Year loves! Can you guys believe it is 2018 already? 🗓 Am I the only one who feels like this past year flew by? ⏳ I, like everyone else on the planet, use the new year as a clean slate and always make new years resolutions. And like most I never quite hit the mark lol. But there is one resolution I started 2 years ago that works for me. It might sound kind of weird but...

Dear God, Thank YOU!

First I want to start this letter by simply saying thank you. And not thank you for the things I normally thank you for, like food, shelter, safety and my family. While I am very grateful for those things today I want to specifically thank you for a promise you gave me 3 years ago, a door you opened almost 2 years ago, a question you prompted 5 months ago, and a covenant you fulfilled 31 days ago. Thank you for my Husband...

Filling Voids

I recently had a conversation with a friend that hit really close to home. The conversation was about their cycle of failed relationships. My friend couldn't seem to understand why every relationship they encounter ends disastrously. We have had frequent conversations about dating before, during and after each one of these relationships. But this particular conversation was different because my friend said something that I did not expect...

Why is Christian Life So Boring?

One thing I see a lot being a young millennial Christian, is a misconception of what Christian life is really like. Many people who believe in Christ but do not live for him (I wrote a blog about this if you don't understand the difference) seem to think that living for Christ is a life filled with church, rules and very little fun. To be honest, if that's what Christianity was really like I don't blame them. Who wants to sign up for a life of boredom and bondage? Not I! ...

Why I Shared My Testimony

If you watched My Testimony video last month you heard the story of my life (at least a big chunk of it) and my struggles. I always knew that, even in the midst of my storm,  God was preparing me to help other people get through what I was going through. I was just unsure of how God...

ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMIN'S baby

One area of my life that I have always struggled giving to God, is my finances. I, like most people, was perfectly fine with praying, reading my bible, going to church and even helping people. But I wanted God to let me decide how I would handle my finances. See I grew up...
