The Ruth’s Lifestyle:

Your desire to connect to another soul should include you first wanting to be a benefit or an addition to their life. Too many times women and men connect for selfish reasons such as: being lonely, bored, and wanting to use them to get over the last bad breakup.
God, always desired us to be in some form of a relationship whether it be a friendship, business partner, or romantic. His design was that we would need one another, and most importantly need Him.

Betrayed on Purpose

Betrayed on Purpose

My first introduction to pain was one that made me question “Lord, haven’t I been through enough.” So “why me”? And then I heard the Lord say, “Why Not You”? You see I can recall being the only little girl at prayer service in my grandparents house listening to the old folks sing hymnals and pray. I can remember my grandfather praying and calling God “a healer, a mind regulator, and a way out of no way” and he would start his prayer off with so much conviction as if he truly had seen God’s hand move just in this way. 


Financially Divorced

Financially Divorced

The moment I heard God say “You have to break this cycle and trust me to help you”, I did not worry about my checking account, my salary, or my future because the truth was I was so tired and bitter living in my present moment, I became desperate for God. Whatever He desired for me to let go, I knew I had to do just that because I was hollow inside. My need for peace was greater than my desire for Facebook/ Instagram likes to help validate my brokenness. 👩🏽‍💻


The Detox


Moving In Silence

Moving In Silence

I used to believe that my silence would save us, but instead it was the very thing that destroyed us, our plans, and all that we had built.  Silence is the number one killer in all areas of life; whether it be your health, your finances, or even a relationship. The inability to acknowledge and communicate about your pain will always prolong the healing process and in some cases kill the vision.
