    Dear Sister: You are that woman!

          On the way to work this morning, I did my morning prayer. But today’s morning prayer took me another route.  I found myself praying for the women that God has assigned to me, this blog and the Dear Sister Podcast. One thing that I realized a long time ago is that my messages won’t be for every woman.  It use to get to me and it was to the point I would try to hold myself to an imaginary standard of perfection. But one day, I decided to be completely myself and it has gotten me further than trying to be “Ms. Perfect”. Truth is…… I’ve been…

    Dear Sister: Keep Pushing!

    Hey sis! I don’t know about you, but the past week and a half have been hectic! Last week, I started back to work and begin prepping for my new set of babies to arrive this week. As I sat through meetings and begin to think about all of the responsibilities piling up on my plate I became overwhelmed.  Overwhelmed at the thought of how I was going to be able to balance being a teacher, third semester ED.S student, and still walk in what God told me to do.  All of these thoughts and worries took over me. I’ll admit I had a five minute pity party for myself, cried…

    Dear Sister: Level Up!

    Sis! I don’t know about you but one of my new favorite songs to listen to is Level Up by Ciara. I literally find myself practicing the routine on a daily. The lyrics of this song speak to the place I’m at in life right now.  Every time that I need an extra boost, I listen to that song and it’s actually apart of my “When I forget who I am” playlist which you can download here! “When I Forget Who I Am” Playlist In this season, it’s literally time to level up ladies! It’s time to break old habits, cut off the wrong people, walk in purpose, and walk…

    Dear Sister: Who’s Sitting At Your Table?

    Sis, have you ever stopped to ask yourself “who sits at my table?” Not at a literal table of course but who do you allow close access to you and certain aspects of your life? For so long I allowed the wrong people to have seats at my table and I was always trying to include these people in my journey.  I gave them sneak peeks at projects I was working on, while I found out about their projects with the rest of the world. I was starting to realize certain people would share their other friends posts but wouldn’t share mine. I peeped a lot of things that had…
