Scripture Writing Now

Scripture Writing became a habit for me a few years ago. It was then I discovered people who combined their creativity with intention to produce countless options of monthly guides for writing the Holy Scripture. I was interested and years later, I still love it. It’s almost October. New things are beginning, routines being established, … More Scripture Writing Now

I Love the Lord

Yesterday on social media a national speaker recommended a song. It caused me to research it for a moment. I chose to watch it on YouTube not by the version recommended, but by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir out of New York. This song, “I Love the Lord” pierces the depths of me, cuts through my … More I Love the Lord

Beets per Minute

When was the last time you ate beets? I don’t imagine it’s at the top of most people’s culinary favorites. I used to hate beets because my only experience with them was out of a can. Those are truly awful. My mother would have them as a side dish for dinner occasionally and they tasted … More Beets per Minute
