A few months ago, I wrote a Letter to My Son, a lot of it was about how to be a healthy man, devoid of toxic masculinity, highlighting some of the most important lessons I’ve learned. Today, I write this one to him when he gets older. P.S. You can check my letters to myContinue reading “Letter to A Black Son in America”

Allyship, Feminism, Intersectionality and Me
My goal for this week is to dedicate this week to women and various topics along the spectrum. I touched on something from the Bible regarding womanhood, I spoke on the Wonder Woman movie and today I wanted to talk about allyship, feminism, and intersectionality.
Vintage Vibes: Amel Larrieux – For Real
I wanted to debut a new series for the blog today with Vintage Vibes. Every once in a while, I’ll showcase a favorite song from years ago that still remains dear to my heart. For this week, we have Amel Larrieux For Real.
Ultimate Sacrifices & Love (Happy Memorial Day)
As I’ve been reading through the New Testament, I’ve had to reflect on the idea of willingly leaving everything behind to do the Lord’s Will. Whether it is to unknown success or an undertaking of great pain, how dedicated are you to a life like Christ?
My Christian Life as A Love Story (Pt. 2): Relationship with God
Yesterday, I wrote about a short story about my relationship with God growing up. It started off very oppositional and foreign, but has eventually become more natural and familial as I’ve gotten older. I’ve now gotten to a point where I want more. The question is how do you build a relationship with God?
My Christian Life as A Love Story (Pt. 1)
I like who I’m becoming and God is an inseparable part of that. As I’ve been developing, I have been trying to figure out how to explain to people who Christianity as a religion is flawed like all religions but Christianity as a faith is more than church on Sunday, it’s a love story everyday.
Love God/Love Others
In conjunction to yesterday’s post about Religion versus Gospel, I recently have been reflecting about God’s messages in the Bible. I find it amazing how we tend to pick and choose what about God we want to make law and what to ignore. I’ve seen some really condescending responses about how God outlawed cutting your hair, piercings,Continue reading “Love God/Love Others”
If I Knew Then… Pt. 3 (Relationships)
I remember when I was young being asked, if you had a magic book that would either tell you who you would marry or when/how you would die, would you want to know? Would it be worth it if you missed that person or know you had to patiently wait? Which would you choose?
Letter to My Son
I’ve already written two letters to my daughter and one to black women but today goes to my son (that doesn’t exist). With all the extensive pressure to perform and live a certain way to society’s standards, I want to reach out to him. I want to give him some lessons I’ve never gotten about growingContinue reading “Letter to My Son”
The “Up”s and Downs of Relationships
A few weeks ago I was watching Up, and I must admit that I was late to the party. The movie itself was charming and went from ordinary to strange very quickly. The entire first ten minutes were cinematic genius and for five of them, not a single word was uttered. I was in aweContinue reading “The “Up”s and Downs of Relationships”
