I am an affectionate person. When I ask someone how they... Continue Reading →
I have seen at times within myself and in others, inconsistency. That doesn’t sound too bad or alarming because most of us struggle with inconsistency in some areas.

One of my spiritual mentors, Dr. Myles Munroe once said, “Where purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable.” There is something unique and beautiful GOD has given us in the heart of Woman that has been historically neglected and abused to the hurt of the world.

Its time to change women’s history.
Recently, I attended a Men’s bible study where there were several men that had wives, mothers, and sisters that had battled or were in battle with breast cancer.

One guy was asked if he was ready to nurture his wife with love as she prepared for her first round of “chemo” because she was known to be physically attractive with long blonde hair and some physical changes could be on the horizon. Another guy described his mother after she had loss several pounds and all of her hair saying, “how frail and different she appeared, yet the essence of her was untouched.” Lastly, there was a brother there which had two sisters that ended up battling cancer at the same time and he remarked how they would often talk about how “Fly” they looked in their expensive wigs.
