I started this blog for myself. I needed a space to release the overwhelming cacophony of musings in my brain. I needed a place to be free, to be bold, to process who I am and what I believe. I think we all need that space. That feeling to take the mask off our minds and be real. Really unsure. Really beautiful. Really confused. We need that space to grow, and to know that what we are in the moment isn't the finished product. I realized somewhere along the way that I didn't want to be afraid of who I was and who I was becoming. I wanted to stand firmly in my identity and allow God to use all of me to talk to you. Every experience I've had, every opinion I form, is all an opportunity to challenge me. I hold nothing back. I am not scared to be judged. I am not afraid of answering the tough question. What you find here is rawness, unfiltered truth, and freedom. But you will also find grace. I don't have it together. Sometimes, I fear I never will. But it's great because in that grace is where I will find my deepest satisfaction. In that grace is where we dig deep and find the beauty. It's where we have the freedom to live unapologetically.

When I'm not blogging, I am working full time teaching Black boys to read and write for their liberation; debating with my husband about Black politics; training my 4 children to be strong, Jesus loving, Black royalty; and finding new ways to enjoy life to the fullest. I sing and write poetry. I am a recovering shopping addict, and I love trying new things.
