TOP 10 Travel Needs

TOP 10 Travel Needs

While planning a trip or even packing can often become daunting, with the right resources; it can actually be easier than expected. As I prepare for 86 days overseas, I have learned a few things that have made the preparation like smooth sailing. I would have never ever imagined that with the right tools, packing could be simple! Now, hear me out!! I always was the one that over packed and I paid overweight fees before departure. (so you can only imagine what my suitcase(s) look like when I return). However, I knew that when preparing for a trip of this magnitude (East Africa), I had to adopt new “packing patterns”. 76 days will be spent in East Africa and 10 days in London…Can you guess how many suitcases I have packed?????? Are you ready for this!?!?! I packed only 1!! 1 suitcase for 86 days and below you will see exactly how. I know you are very impressed…hahah I must admit I shocked myself as well.

The Journey Continues

The Journey Continues

So, you know how I wrote that book back in 2013 titled “When God Vetoes Your Plan”, and you know how I said God was not only inviting me but you as well on a journey to a life without limits?? Well, God just took it up a notch! Towards the end of last year I began to pray and seek God concerning what’s next but never could I have imagined what He would say. I spent weeks in prayer just to ensure that I heard Him correctly and was not influenced by anything or anyone around me. After confirmation and continual prayer, God spoke very clearly to me and said. “Miracle it’s time to get out of the boat of “comfort”, “contentment” and “routine”. It’s time for you to allow me to expose you to a life that you’ve written about, preached about, given counsel about but have only scratched the surface. 2015 will not only be the year of “No Labor” but it will also be the year that you “Own” your life, your dreams and the new platform that I am getting ready to release into your hands.” As if that was not enough, God began to wake me up with very vivid dreams of what’s to come, how it will come and the role I will not have in the process (meaning that I will not be about me doing or saying anything but simply being properly positioned and allowing His favor to follow my obedience to His will). Most are aware that for the past 6 years I have lived outside of the United States. Directly following...
Take the Lid Off

Take the Lid Off

Have you ever wondered what’s stopping you? I mean really sat down and asked yourself, “Why am I still thinking about my dreams but not pursuing them?” If you are anything like me, I’m sure you have. Of course you have made some headway and of course you aren’t where you used to be but somewhere down the line you stopped dreaming and daring to be great. Maybe you became a husband or wife or even a parent and life started to look a lot different. Maybe you finally landed that dream job, only to find that it wasn’t your dream at all. You searched and searched but eventually became tired of looking and settled. You allowed all of your dreams to stay inside the “Jar of Impossibilities”. However, on the inside you knew that you were keeping a lid on your gifts and abilities. Deep down you could sense the feeling of discontentment but you managed to ignore it. That is, until now. It’s a New Year and though many people will declare that the New Year does not change anything, the truth is, it has the ability to change everything. Just think if we treated the growth of children in the same way we do a New Year. In fact, if a child stayed the same from age 5 to age 16 we would classify that as a disability. This is said to be true in our lives as well. If we remain at the same stage at age 18 as 32, something has taken place that has crippled us, stunting our growth. We were created to grow, to change,...
