Pray WITHOUT ceasing

I've been very transparent about my struggles on here. I even admitted that my posting schedule has dropped significantly because of these struggles. Yesterday, I was talking with a mentee about love, life, and everything in between. God and the concept of prayer came up.

Leaps such as applying to the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago, standing up to people in high places of power, and for moving to Florida without having any friends or family here.

The Good News: The Dog Matchmaker

Today's Good News fulfills an itch I've had for about five months now. I've fought off the urge to get married and build a family in favor of life stabilization and personal development. The next best thing to a girlfriend is a puppy, "they are always happy to see you!" (I joke, I joke, I kid,… Continue reading The Good News: The Dog Matchmaker

The Reason for Brotherhood (or Sisterhood)

For years I never had male friends. I went through my adolescence with only one male friend and everything else revolved around my girlfriend at the time. I didn't know the importance of a brother, someone who you connect with for no other reason but for their existence.
