Natural Hair Week In Review

I have three teenagers conceived with the help of one man. Two-thirds of our teenagers will be attending two different colleges in two different states with the assistance of thousands of federally-funded, bank-funded and hard earned dollars.

In the Book of Numbers, God tells Moses to take a census of every male of the children of Israel according to their families and their purpose.

Every person matters to God.  We are His wonderful creations. He knows our name. He knows our purpose and everything about us.

Yoga Inspiration

Yoga is a union of body, mind, and spirit.  It brings balance.  It becomes a part of your physical life as your body grows stronger, more toned, and more flexible as we flow from one Asana to another.

It becomes a part of your mental life as you focus on breathing while you hold each asana.  This awareness is calming and it dissolves stress and axiety.  It becomes a part of your spiritual life as it teaches self love and in return you spread love to others around you.

Why do we say Namaste? It’s a way to send out positive vibrations into the universe.  The word expresses gratitude, gives closure, expresses relief, but it’s also a conduit to something greater. It represents a union.  A connection that transcends language and culture.  It’s an acknowledgement of the soul in another.  We are all one when we live from the heart.

Bun Happiness #naturallygg

I usually wake up with a to-do list on my mind.  However, this morning when I woke up, I bypassed the thoughts of facing morning traffic, picking the kids up from school and the things that I did not accomplish on yesterday.

Instead, I praised Yahweh for being the awesome God that He is…the creator of the mountains, the oceans, the dirt, the stars!  I am connected to such a grand Magnificent network, so how hard would it be to set small daily goals to help me combat my fear of failure?

I’ve been goal driven for most of my life but because I have fallen short many times in the past few years, I made a habit of starting projects without planning or setting goals.  I am now learning how to give my fears, dreams, my plans, and goals over to God and trust that He will give me the desires of my heart….believe, plan, work.

I set a goal this morning to get 600 steps on my Fitbit before leaving for work…achieved!

At work, I set another goal after listening to students share their college and career goals. They shared how they want to become computer engineers, nurses, architects, and members of the marines.

They inspired me to look for beauty in something, no matter how old, new, small or grand it may be. So for 21 days, I am going to search for something or someone beautiful and share it with you.

Naturally GG shows us how to gently refresh old, twisted out hair into a beautiful style  She uses her hair tools to create three polished buns with smooth edges. I hope her video helps……Happy bunning!

Work-It-Out Wednesday #NaturallyGG


This morning I cooked Martha Stewart’s homemade pancakes. Of course the recipe called for milk but I was out. My 16 year old son was famished from his 6 a.m. basketball practice, so I didn’t have time to run out to the store. I looked in the fridge and luckily we had the Almond milk that my 14-year-old-lactose-intolerant son refuses to drink. To my surprise, the milk worked out just fine…the pancakes turned out fluffy and sweet. So I’m calling today Work-It- Out Wednesday….we do it all the time with family, work…. our HAIR! Naturally GG shares a few ideals on how to work our natural hair while we are working out our physique. Hope you enjoy and happy work outs!
