Verbal Art

A personal testimony is a journey. Since a young age I’ve been rapping and this is sort of like the recap. When people ask me about my tattoos I tell them its like they’ve always been there and someone just revealed them. Same, same. The good art just feels like its always been there, but now its just being revealed. Amazing enough you can always sing along with a song you know. So the first encounter was Praying for You by Lecrae. I knew from the first verse he was talking about himself. We’re inherently selfish aren’t we? Maybe we…

Something to be seen

To awaken within A history A destination Predestined You saw it, You saw it right through me. Discernment In love. You knew I had something A value A blessing I saw my past, The pain and misstepping. Who knew I had something to been seen. My soul hid it there. A treasure for only you to see. In the end a blessing. Your eyes penetrated my soul, They noticed you saw something. You stepped out of place, And I stood there unaware of the pain you would heal. I can’t imagine what it was when you saw it But I…

More than ever before

Clean & Clear, Noxema, & Purpose all for the surface. That is cleaning my face for someplace I have to go. Sweats, bra, and shoes. No socks needed. That attitude’s depleted. Foundation, mascara, lip gloss–must be poppin’, but its like I’ll never finish shopping. Hair, nails, and toes All of a sudden I’ve booked shows, with no one to go…with. WITH seems to be the issue. no pain on tissues, no silent ‘I miss you’s” Just ‘you’re with…?!’ Amazing, unbelievable, congratulations I must be missing, what they’re now wishing was their WITH. Time, money, and clothes, I know it’s not…

So comfortable.

I’m sitting here listening to my usual rap playlist and Andy Mineo’s Uncomfortable comes on. There’s been a lot more conversation about social issues in media, and I think people have finally stopped caring if their opinions will offend anyone. We are vocal in our beliefs and opinions, holding them as gold. But what happens when we take a look at Andy’s lyrics in a societal setting. I mean he doesn’t make his music for Christians only. Nobody told me you could die like this Nobody told me you could die from bliss, yeah Nobody told me, nobody told me…

On the way…

By popular demand I will blog my life over the next month. I’m not trying to be overbearing, just transparent. There have been a lot of days I’ve spent pondering about this dream trip and what it means to me. To finally come to the point of getting on the plane is priceless. I have so many emotions funneling. The first is extreme gratitude for all of my family and friends who have helped me financially be able to afford the trip. They were God sent and Gracious donations. I do not mind being your representative. The second emotion would…

Mother Teresa

Today (Jan 26th) I came to visit Mother Teresa’s tomb. While the area of the city was not overly impressive, upon entering the mission the weight of the building and atmosphere was incredible. It’s not like coming into a place of worship but an overwhelming sense of oppression and gloom. I’ve prayed many times before for the gift of discernment, to understand the truth behind words, intentions, and places, but here this negative atmosphere does not seem to be unspiritual or better said, ungodly. It is just weighty. Maybe the Catholics call it purgatory… Like there is a burden of…

Traveling with a purpose.

Millennials are all about being the ‘get up and go’ generation. We’ve blasted onto the travel scene and self-proclaimed ourselves as global citizens. We buy books with titles like, “Quit your 9-5 and travel the world” and “Delaying the real world”. Is it all hype, or are we truly trending to an individualistic, nomadic lifestyle? Working from home brings strong allure, but not having a home is becoming more and more popular. Why not live in an apartment in Thailand for $500/month when you would still be renting for twice as much at home anyways? There are many avenues to…

Getting My Opportunity

Getting my opportunity Sometimes you just feel like you deserve something. And after the wait, I definitely felt deserving. The truth is I was thankful for my time at home and it would always stand as an example for me. It is always an option to move back home for the family. When I finally got my opportunity to interview for my first Division one coaching gig I was elated. By no means did I get there myself. I was advocated. I had people on my side working for me daily. One, in particular, was my head coach at the…

#NatsInLove

This week I went proclaiming my love on Facebook. I’m not a secretive person, but I left off my loves name and took the confessions route. Ya’ll I’m in love…he’s 6’4, tall (dark), handsome and one of the kindest people I know, and yes I think about him everyday…‪#‎NatsInLove‬ Woke up smiling this morning…‪#‎NatsInLove‬…I think what’s crazy is that we’ve know each other forever but it wasn’t until we had a heart to heart conversation (tears were shed) that our relationship began to grow. It’s so easy to think that love is automatic sometimes, but we decided to take it…
