Kenneka, Domestic Abuse, and Forgotten Black Women

I’m just writing this because it has been sitting on my heart. I’ve been reading over the past few days about Kenneka Jenkins and her death (Link at the Bottom). The saddest part about this story is that it is not surprising or new the details to culminated in her death. To avoid posting graphic images or talking about unknown things until more information is revealed, I want to talk about some recent thoughts on some serious topics. [Trigger Warning]

My Christian Life as A Love Story (Pt. 2): Relationship with God

Yesterday, I wrote about a short story about my relationship with God growing up. It started off very oppositional and foreign, but has eventually become more natural and familial as I’ve gotten older. I’ve now gotten to a point where I want more. The question is how do you build a relationship with God?

My Christian Life as A Love Story (Pt. 1)

I like who I’m becoming and God is an inseparable part of that. As I’ve been developing, I have been trying to figure out how to explain to people who Christianity as a religion is flawed like all religions but Christianity as a faith is more than church on Sunday, it’s a love story everyday.
