Love, romance, can be so simple sometimes. Just… “love me in a way that doesn’t manipulate or play games…and if you will love me this way, then, for you, I will do the same.” ____________________________________________________________ excerpt from the love section of my first 📖book, the “Spoken Word Soundtrack for Survival” (Volume 1 in the Hot 🔥Prayers Flow Like Fire Series). ____________________________________________________________ Watch the video, Love ❤️Me This Way, to see the live version from the Launch Party.
My great grandmother was a force of nature and her love ❤️ran deep. It wasn't mushy. It was gritty and strong. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––She put her heart, her money and her everything into loving you until you were strong enough to love yourself, your own family and your community. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––So when she says "I'm not gone get back any further than you knock me" I took it to mean she stands up for herself, her family and her community. That's who she was. And that's what she raised.
This Diva is a survivor, a woman that I respect and she won a Hot Prayers Spoken Word dvd at the Launch Party last year. Get it Gina!
"Fear don't pay no rent, so I'm kicking him out. And his side piece too, that chick called doubt. Bye" - don't mind me, I'm just doing a little house cleaning. ________________________________________________________________ My hot 🔥little prayer: since "perfect love casts out fear"* then Father perfect our love, heal our hearts and purify our desires - so that we long for the kind of love that we truly need" ________________________________ *1 John 4:18
my hot little prayer - "be blessed, be healed, be overflowing and filled with calm tonight, I pray you from dark to light"
Shared Hot🔥Prayers — Spoken Word in the Phipps Arena...and this little Diva (in the middle) won the cash💰prize! Great moment with great people! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Be smart. Be beautiful. Always! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ With @yuluvkennj2 @missionreborn @short_5tuff
Never let a bad situation define you. You choose who you are - not the mess that tried to damage you.
TRUE STRENGTH is when you own the stuff and the stuff don't own you. Never the other way around. Your money 💵 don't run you. Your perfect car 🚙 don't run you. Your designer clothes 🛍 don't run you. Never forget.
I just ❤️love a good reason for a big laugh. Makes me feel alive!
I like my car, my clothes and my house. But life is much sweeter when you realize that it's NOT THE STUFF that makes you special. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––So you don't loose your mind in seasons where life falls apart. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Instead, you regroup, reset and keep it moving. Because you are and always have been more than your stuff. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By the way this is my most requested spoken word piece in 2017. Let me know what you think. ________________________________And you can catch the whole poem at HotPrayers.com/NotTheStuff/

Reflecting. My present looks nothing like I planned, but I'm still moving forward, limps and all!
You know what? There are seasons where you fall apart - completely. That’s natural. But choosing not to stay there, choosing to rise again. That’s super-natural. Have wings. Must fly 🦋
It’s the “learning how to use it” part that hurts a little...but I want to get this, so I’ll keep pushing
Thinking 🤔 about the future. This year turned out nothing like I planned....Mom is gone. So, I’m talking to God 🙏🏾 about how to keep moving on — one focused dream at a time...I am accepting hot🔥prayers at this time...
Just because you’re born with wings🧚🏾♂️doesn’t mean you will fly. You have to cultivate the skill. A Simple Reminder: pay attention to your wings, practice how to fly, so that when it’s time to really soar 🦅 — you can 😇
Sometimes you have to cry. Cry. Sometimes you have to stand. Stand. Sometimes you have to walk away. Walk. Sometimes you have to do all three at the same time. Do it. Get rid of the wrong stuff, so you can start making space for exactly what you need.
Snow ❄️in Georgia in December and I mean real snow with snowman ⛄️, first snow, second snow and now I want to sing Christmas 🎄 carols snow. And then poof — all gone.
Write your story. Let it live in a song, 📚book, 🎥movie. Just get the pain out of you and into the world so that it's never forgotten. This way, your story can live a thousand lives but that pain can no longer contaminate your healing ❤️heart. This is my story...
The way I see it, you don't have to be perfect, you just have to be connected to a perfect love (God). You don't have to be completely without fear, you just have to keep standing until you FEAR - a little - LESS each day.
