We Shall Persist

I envision the day… When women and men will be treated equally and given the same opportunities. When men will not use their position to discredit but to empower women. When women will not be seen as subhuman or less than. When women are not objectified and categorized. When women will not be frowned upon [...]

Girls…

Girls, we are created by God with a special ingredient, with a special essence, with a special purpose. We are made unique, courageous, and full of potential. We are not created to be seen and not heard. We are not created to be compliant and unassertive We are created to be treated with respect We [...]

After 21 Years…

Who would have thought, that after 21 years of first meeting Dr. Hyveth Williams, at Big Camp in Brisbane, Australia, I would spend one week with her in her preaching class.

Girls…

Girls… there are no limits. You can be anything you want to be. Never allow anyone to tell you, you can’t do something because you are a girl. They are just afraid of everything you are capable of. Do not let their limited vision, and conditioned thinking, stop you from reaching your full potential and [...]

How Will You Respond?

Christians, why are some of us still making excuses for men who devalue women and act as if they have done nothing wrong? Why do we defend such low standards and abusive behavior without accountability? Why are we more interested in protecting a man of “stature” than striving for justice? Why do we remain silent [...]

I Believe You

I cannot begin to imagine what you went through. I cannot even begin to comprehend how terrified you must have been. I cannot fathom the horrific memories that consume you and have left an unhealable wound. I would never be able to grasp the fear and panic that fills your everyday life. No one has [...]

Today I challenge you to say nice things to 3 people without expecting anything in return. Just be nice and smile! You [...]
