Stay Woke.

In life, we will interact with, befriend and work alongside a multitude of people. Because humans are vessels used by God and the enemy to carry out their plans, some of these people will be heaven-sent, and some will not.

Pause

Here in Wisconsin, as the snow makes its arrival, I’m alarmed that it is already Fall. With each passing day, I find myself increasingly aware that one day I won’t experience these seasons any longer. My clock will stop ticking, and what I have done up until that point will be all I have to... Continue Reading →

Don’t Go Alone

I'm one of those people who can't drive in thunderstorms. When the clouds open, all my driving experience goes out the window.

Emotional Rollercoasters

Monopoly Mega — a game of high priced rent, extravagant skyscrapers, elaborate property trades and my rollercoaster of emotions.
