    Elevate Your Faith to Elevate Your Life

    I’m talking about a spiritual glo up. The type of elevation that allows God to bless you beyond measures. The type of elevation that makes people ask you who, what, and how. This glo up is not just about looking better, it’s about being better and doing better so that you can draw souls to the kingdom of Christ. So I guess by now you’re wondering how you can activate your spiritual glo up? It’s easy and there are only two steps: having faith and taking action.

  • Change Your Thinking & Change Your Life

    What if I told you that you could change your life by simply changing the way that you think? So many of us are going through life angry, upset, and disappointed, and we don’t have to be. Changing the way that you think and view the world around you can have a great impact on your life! Recently, I found myself constantly complaining about everything! I was complaining about school, complaining about having to go to work, complaining that it was too cold, or too windy. Eventually, I started to get on my own nerves.

  • Book Review #3 – The Worn Out Woman

    I finished The Worn Out Woman by Dr. Steve Stephens & Alice Gray in three days. This is saying a lot because I’ve had two midterms, quizzes, and a bunch of homework due this week. This might be the best book I’ve read this year, replacing Don’t Settle for Safe (you can read that review here). In my last book review, I said that I would be reading The Self-Love Experiment by Shannon Keiser next, but after reading a few chapters I decided that book wasn’t for me. Honestly, I had to force myself to read it. I think that truly takes away the enjoyment I get from curling up with a good…

  • 3 Reasons to be Celibate | Lady in the Streets

    So I have been thinking about writing about sex and celibacy for awhile now but could never bring myself to do it. I don’t know if it’s because I still struggle with the temptation or if it’s a little too personal. I am a very private person and one thing I rarely ever talk about with people is my sex life. However, God has placed it on my heart to talk about it and my decision to be celibate. Related: I Was Dreading Valentine’s Day…. I decided to be celibate right around the time that I started blogging seriously. At that time I had just gotten out of a two…

  • I Was Dreading Valentine’s Day…..

      Yesterday was my first Valentine’s Day in a few years where I was really single. Like, not expecting to receive anything single. You know how you can be single but you and your boo will have problems if you don’t at least get some flowers and a card? Lol I wasn’t even expecting that. I was truly single and spent the day alone. And I loved every moment of it! Up until two days ago, I was not looking forward to Valentine’s Day and then something just switched. I just felt at peace and decided that I was going to make this one of the best Valentine’s Days I’ve…

  • Friends, How Many of Us Have Them?

    A lot of times the people in our circle are there out of convenience. We become friends with our classmates or coworkers simply because we're always around them. Often times we do this without evaluating what the person brings into our lives. Some people bring stress while others bring peace. Some people help you eliminate distractions while others become the distractions. The company you keep has a huge influence on the way you think, speak, and act. I want to take a look of some of the greatest friendships in the bible and see what we can learn from them. Today, we'll be starting with Naomi & Ruth.
