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

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!

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?

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

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

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...

God Did Not Create Us to Fit In

This past weekend I attended homecoming at Howard University for the first time since graduation (c/o 2010). It was like a walk down memory lane.  Overall it was a good trip, but it brought back some not so great memories. While I was walking around at events with my two good friends, I noticed how many people they knew and that were happy to see them. On the other hand, I didn't know very many people at all, even though we all went to the same school at the same time. I did run into a few people I knew very well at one point, but the friendship ended on bad terms years ago. That was pretty awkward. I really only made a two lasting connections in college.
