My Deep Sleep

Our contributor Rajeev has graciously allowed us to feature his writing with our readers. Stay tuned for more contributors in the future! This article was originally posted on Jeevo Music.

In the beginning, God created both man and woman.  He created the man first, but was thinking of the woman at the same exact time.  Creating the man first does not mean the man is more important – as some cultures and people would like to believe.  God created the man with specific voids.  Man needed God.  Man needed to work.  Man was alone.  Man needed something more.  Man was not satisfied with what he saw – the land, the garden, the animals, the sun, the moon – these were all great – but it did not quite seem whole.

The creation story happens before “the fall.”  This means when God said “It is not good for man to be alone,” He is revealing His profound intention.  Shalom.  Peace.  Reconciliation.  Between man and woman. Continue reading “My Deep Sleep”

CHRISTIAN NEWLYWED EXPECTATIONS VS. REALITY

In this video, my husband Jerrell and I share some of the things we expected as newlyweds vs. what actually happened. We believe it’s important to share with you guys what we’ve learned in our 8 years of marriage because ups and downs are such a normal part of every relationship. Please share with anyone you think might be interested in this video.

I also wrote more in depth about the subject in this article here.

In Love,

I was recently hired to model for a local Pasadena shop named April Blooms. The owner’s name is April and her mission is to help women of all shapes, sizes, and colors bloom and feel beautiful. I love an organization with a purpose, and the icing on the cake was finding out that she donates a portion of the shop’s sales to two organizations that support victims of human trafficking both at home in California and abroad through prevention, advocacy, prosecution, and restoration. Learn more about them at A21.org and redeemingloveca.com. When I first walked into the shop, I was immediately drawn to the textiles. Every embroidered tote bag and clutch was calling my name, as well as the clothing that has a sophisticated and high quality feel. I now own two new dresses from the shop and look forward to getting more in the future. Follow April Blooms on Facebook and Instagram to get a heads up on all of their amazing featured deals.

screen-shot-2017-03-02-at-1-54-18-amWhen I booked the photoshoot for G.L.A.M. Camp for Girls after seeing the casting on Pink Couch Girl, I did what any normal adult would do: I Instagram stalked her co-director Seyi Famuyiwa. I remember telling Seyi when I submitted to be a model that–if nothing else–I’m so glad to see women of faith using their platform of fashion and content creating to spread the gospel. To me, that’s really all that matters in life and it’s comforting to see others that are of the same mindset. Going through her feed and reading her blog, I understood why these two had been chosen to organize the shoot. Her taste is impeccable and I’ve learned a few things about navigating social media from seeing how she cultivates her brand and online community. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself.

My latest hobby is browsing through fashion blogger Instagram accounts. My favorites are the ones that have a pleasing color scheme, balanced images, and a common theme. When I came upon Pink Couch Girl, I was immediately impressed and clicked “Follow” with the quickness. It’s no wonder she actually has a course on how to get your Instagram feed in order. Days later, she posted that she would be co-creative directing a photoshoot for G.L.A.M. Camp for Girls. I was excited that I booked the shoot and would get to meet her in person. Her name is very fitting for her because Dr. Peace Amadi is one of the most calm under pressure people I’ve ever worked with. (Us creative types can usually get very frazzled very quickly!) Whenever I see her posts, I always know there’s a helpful nugget of wisdom in the description because she takes her platform and influence seriously. Get to know her and let her know I sent you.

Have you ever met someone and knew almost immediately that they were a world changer, and a force that wouldn’t let anyone or anything stand in their way? I felt this way upon my first encounter with Melinda Watts, the founder of G.L.A.M. Camp for Girls. I saw a model call for a photoshoot that was associated with this ministry and the Lord immediately said to submit my photo to them. It’s even interesting how that moment came to be because it was after browsing a few Instagram profiles that led me to media content creator Dr. Peace Amadi who was creative directing the photoshoot along with her friend and fashion blogger Seyi Famuyiwa. I have a special place in my heart for other women God leads to start ministries that focus on building up young ladies because I know they truly understand my calling to do the same. I could go on and on about Melinda, but I’d rather you see for yourself. Browse the website and check G.L.A.M. Camp out on their Instagram to see what they’re up to now.

Is Marriage Supposed to Last Forever?

This article was originally written in June of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!

There is news in the media almost every week about someone famous calling it quits in their relationship, but it really gives me something to ponder when one of them says, “I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever.”

I can tell you with certainty that most of my friends, Christian or not, have been plagued by doubts that their relationship would survive. When reality set in a few months into my marriage and the sound of wedding bells began to fade, I was completely thrown off by the struggles we were already facing. What happened to the “honeymoon stage” or “wedded bliss”? Continue reading “Is Marriage Supposed to Last Forever?”

On Facebook, my timeline is usually flooded with the dark side of politics, education, food, family, community, you name it. With our generation, there’s a lot of talking and a lot less doing. This sparked Mone’t’s passion to make a difference by spreading positivity and a call to action to support the Black community. It was a breath of fresh air when she founded The Black Business Tour and I saw her consistently interviewing Black owned businesses or going to an event that recycles Black dollars. When I tell you Mone’t is on the move, I mean she is on the move. And she does it so fashionably, might I add! Check out her social media if you want to keep up with her and see which businesses she’s visiting and what events are coming up. Do you want her to feature your business or event? Check out her services and rates right here.

Here’s a little about her company in her own words:

“We tour Black-owned businesses and share them with you! We emphasize a lifestyle of recycling Black dollars to rebuild COMMUNITY.”

Should a Christian Date a Non-Believer?

This article was originally written in October of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!

I’ve had my fair share of being interested in guys who admittedly didn’t follow The Lord, or their relationship with Him was on rocky ground. I even had to turn down someone I had feelings for because God didn’t want me to be with him. This person then told me that if my God didn’t want me to date him, then he didn’t want anything to do with my God.

You’ll find out pretty quickly what someone’s intentions are once you mention how sold out you are for Jesus—especially when your actions back it up. It is possible that you can invite someone you’re dating to church and they do genuinely accept Jesus and become a Christian, but that’s not a reason to purposely enter into a relationship with an unbeliever.
