I was thinking back to what people would go through to get a bargain on "Black Friday". It has become known as the day of the greatest deals before Christmas. I don’t think it is ironic but rather strategic that one of the greatest displays of covetousness now traditionally occurs right after a Holiday observed... Continue Reading →
Better Comes from Owning Not Blaming
Sankofa is the process of understanding where you are by a truthful evaluation of the circumstances that got you to your “here”. That means owning the present outcomes since they are largely based on the values and beliefs you exercised in your decision making. We don’t always get to choose the particular options before us...

Your Greatest Supporter
In serious business, people often look for you to invest something of yourself to show that you are sincere and committed. No one has been more vested in your life than GOD. You may feel that He has been distant and not very present, but His love is in every bird that sings, every fragrant... Continue Reading →
From A Talk I Gave On “Worship”
Worship plain and simple means “to bow down to,” originating from the Hebrew word “shachah". We see it in the passage of Psalms 29:2 “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” Throughout scripture you will see the phrase “they fell down and worshiped Him.” ...

The challenge with the church and people at large has not been that we have not done enough or not tried hard enough, the challenge is understanding the “what”... Continue Reading →
Who were you born to become?
The first book I published is titled, “True Heritage: Recovering From Spiritual Identity Theft .” True freedom and fulfillment do not come until you discover who you truly are. Many people are living a script that was handed to them by powers which seek to exploit and oppress them. When you don’t know the truth... Continue Reading →
