During quarantine I have been working from home. With the kids out of school I don’t necessarily have to be up early I can sleep in as long as I get my work for the day complete, or so I thought. Prior to COVID I was an early riser 5am to start my day, as we settled into the new normal I began to sleep in later first 6:30, then 8:30, one day I slept in until 11am. This is not normal for me. I like to get up and get started. As I noticed my sleep pattern change I … Continue reading The Early Bird Gets The Worm!
If you haven’t been paying me any attention then you missed the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Want to know what it is/was?! My sister, Ayesha, and I have launched a show on Facebook LIVE, IG LIVE, and YouTube to discuss the ministry of sisterhood. We are giving you a behind the scenes look into our lives.

In this week’s shaming story, it’s just me and this body that I am in, that I love but apparently someone felt I should … Continue reading It’s A Shame! Part 2
I honestly hate that this is a conversation we have to keep having but it’s a very necessary one. I’m talking about the conversation around Mom Shaming! It’s a tough enough job nurturing and guiding these people we’ve been given, but to have someone take a hammer and shatter your confidence in this area it’s a bit much. We all know we don’t have it all together, yet each day we at least attempt to put on this brave face and join society. The last thing you need when trying to hold it together is someone giving you the look. … Continue reading It’s A Shame!
Hey Hotties! The school year has officially started for most (YAY!) This summer was amazing the kids and I had a great time on some great adventures. As most of you know Anissa has started kindergarten and Jamiel is a freshmen in high school. Yeah, yeah, I know the spacing, but you know I like it spicy and the way to keep it that way is to spread them far apart, just joking that’s life. Anyway that’s not what this post is about. My son is attending a great private school, that has a high moral and educational code, they … Continue reading Being Nanekia…Do Not Apply Pressure!
