Reader’s Choice: Religion versus Gospel

Why is religion such a taboo topic? Why do so many people have an aversion to hearing about spirituality, whether Christian or not? Why is it that everyone can listen to music with sex, drugs, violence, love, and friendship but God is going too far? Why is religion such a divisive subject for anyone to… Continue reading Reader’s Choice: Religion versus Gospel

The Good News: Wise Words from the Street

Today's Good News was an important one to see coming from my background. Being from Detroit, I've seen too many kids get in fights because of pointless arguments or just from friends instigating. When I was young, I was even in a good amount of those fights myself. Check out the following four minute clip.… Continue reading The Good News: Wise Words from the Street

War Room (Movie Reflection)

As a subtle but not so subtle transition, I spoke about all types of relationships except the one that is most important to me, God. All this week is inspired by my exploration of my relationship with God. I wasn't able to see The Shack yet, so let's talk about a surprise enjoyment, War Room instead. War Room Trailer:… Continue reading War Room (Movie Reflection)

Dating with Depression

I've talked about father-child relationships, romantic relationships, relationships with pets, and even art/music interacting with itself. The central element to all of these relationships has a level of intention and purpose. Today, I wanted to talk about one of the hardest relationships, internal conflict and how that affects others. Today's post was inspired by a… Continue reading Dating with Depression

H.E.R. Vol 1 and H.I.M. Vol 1

Cloaked artists. Mystery music. Moods set by smokey lounges, late night drives, and midnight rendezvous. Slowed down and sexy tones pioneered by the Weeknd before he moved to the forefront of music and became a Starboy or went to Kiss Land. Mystery artists are all the rage today and today, I'll introduce two. Note: Sequels… Continue reading H.E.R. Vol 1 and H.I.M. Vol 1

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? If… Continue reading If I Knew Then… Pt. 3 (Relationships)

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 growing… Continue reading Letter to My Son

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 “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 awe… Continue reading The “Up”s and Downs of Relationships
