Christian Siriano to Launch a Tech Accessories Collection

I will never forget when I was searching through multiple Playless stores in New York City for Christian Siriano’s spring 2010 collection. I just had to have the Alexander McQueen inspired avant garde shoes. I found them and wore them out! Since Project Runway, Christian has been one of my favorites and he is from Baltimore! The designer, who has…

Grace: the free and unmerited favor of God

Sisterly Advice from Heather Lindsey

God will use whoever is willing. Don’t limit Him based on how you see yourself. He HAS a plan for your life & that plan requires you letting go of YOU to see it. Then, you will discover why you were made & the problem you were created to solve. Let go. ‪#‎Jesus- Heather

Before You Turn Up Read This:

Before You Turn Up Read This:

I often think about what turning up used to mean to me. I used to drink for celebratory reasons, when I was unhappy, and when I was bored. But since I haven’t had a drink in almost three years, I’ve realized turning up with the help of a substance was a byproduct of being gifted but empty. Gifted but empty…

It’s All About Perspective

It’s All About Perspective

It’s no secret that as I build my empire I work at a restaurant. It is ridiculously challenging because I’m really not for manual labor; I mean I rock stiletto nails! Before walking into work I always talk to God about a few things. I ask Him to give me patience when dealing with my co-workers, I ask Him to…

When you face a struggle, a disappointment or storm, let one of the first things you say be: “God help me find the treasure in my trial. -Joyce Meyer  

God is my provider

God Is My Provider

I have learned that you can either try to do everything yourself and become burnt out, or you can rest assured that God will give you exactly what you need- when you need it. It’s all about faith and perspective. I work at a restaurant where the majority of the seating is outdoors. Making good money depends on where the…

Sisterly Advice from Heather Lindsey

Stop anticipating what hasn’t happen in fear. Instead, simply believe the best. Why is it that we put more faith in things NOT working out vs. things working out? Place your trust in God, HE provides, leads, comforts, and takes care of you.. if you let Him. He flows through faith, not fear.  – Heather

Mama Joyce Says

    We don’t just HAVE TO trust God, we GET TO trust God. It’s a privilege to be able to trust God. What an honor it is to have a God who is faithful and we know loves us, who has all power and all wisdom and all knowledge, who’s everywhere all the time, and never takes His eye…

Spiritual Growth Ain’t Pretty

You know, some people want change but don’t want to actually change. Some people want God to place them in high places but can’t handle where they are currently. Some don’t understand that in order to get where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be. If you aren’t changing, you aren’t…

I’m Waiting For Deliverance At The Doe

Sometimes we are so deep in mess that we can’t see the little glimpses of hope showing that God is bringing us out. We tend to summarize our desperation and then invite others to our pity party. We complain and whine the entire time we are in a trial; not realizing that if God is going to use us, we…

Jesus Is My Homeboy

What Does It Mean To Have a Friend in Jesus? I’ll admit I don’t have a lot of friends. I like to keep my circle tight. I have learned that sometimes to be great, you may have to be alone. While I love my friends, they aren’t always accessible. I get it, we’re getting older and my friends with families…
