This January, the OWN Network released a new eight-episode series called Love & Marriage: Huntsville centered around the lives of three high-powered African-American couples with strong personalities and points of views. Their goal is to come together to put Huntsville back on the map but must navigate through the realities of dealing with love and marriage while attempting to focus on transforming the city as well as their personal relationships.Read More
First of all, let me just say that after this experience I realize that God has kept me! After sharing my story so many women have reached out and I am in Facebook groups with women sharing their experience and I see how lucky I’ve been with my experience.Read More
It always makes me so sad to hear my friends say they are not happy because they feel like having a “regular” life is not good enough. Everyone does not have to be a Girl Boss, some people are happy enough working their regular 9 to 5 and coming home to relax rather than creating content or answering e-mails. A lot of people are working jobs that they hate, in marriages and relationships with ups and downs, struggling to find balance between being a mother and self care, and figuring out their business as they go. Ya know normal human stuff?Read More
Let’s start with the good news. I found a doctor that actually educated me, that I feel comfortable with, that can become my official OBGYN, that can perform a minimally invasive surgery, and that can deliver my future baby (which is honestly the only reason this whole situation is an emotional situation). She actually specializes in fibroids and I literally cried tears of joy during my visit with her. That is until we start talking MONEY.Read More
It's like you go on trial with your friendships when you get married. You're being judged, being convicted, and having to defend yourself with your friends. It's like You vs. Your Married Self. You know that your innocent of being the same person, but everyone else sees you as being guilty of changing who you are. I mean are they the problem or you the problem? You have no control over how someone else sees you, especially if they don't even think enough of you to communicate. Of course it hurts losing a friend especially while transitioning into being someone's wife.
What can I say? It's hard out here for a wifey!Read More
So I've HEARD of fibroids, but honestly until two weeks ago I shied away from the topic. My mom, aunts, grandma, and a few of my friends have had them and went through the surgery. At the time they brought it up, I didn't know enough about fibroids to care or to realize just how prominent they are in the African American community until NOW. Ain't that something?Read More
As women we wear so many hats and because we desire to be successful in all of those things, sometimes we get lost in the hustle and bustle of things. As a brand with a loyal audience, sometimes you refuse to take a break or step away from posting for fear that you will lose your audience. This can be true, but that further proves that you need to take a break and enjoy REAL LIFE because THAT is what's real.Read More
May has been all about embracing the Queen within you. I often feel like we as women don't give ourselves enough credit nor do we give other queens credit. I wanted to have a meetup with queens where we could be uplifting to one another and crown ourselves because the world doesn't give us much opportunity to do so.Read More
As a bride, you have a lot of decisions to make and there are a lot of parties involved in the wedding planning process. You have your parents who may or may not be paying, your friends and their preferences, your in-laws and their unexpected guests, and your opinionated guests who want to do what they want to do. During the wedding planning process, you often times will start to ask yourself "Is this my wedding or their wedding?".Read More
The Millennial Wives Club members are cordially invited to join the Marriage Money Mission with a special price only offered to Millennial Wives Club members. I'm excited to announce that my husband and I will be on our way to Prosperity on May 5, 2018! Will you join us?Read More
There’s always that one friend that you realize may not be your friend because you always the one being the friend to them and one day you realize that they have not been a friend to you and you just decide to let them go. In return they are confused and try to work it out or they just don’t even care. I would know...I’ve been on both ends of this scenario.Read More
If it isn’t your problem, do yourself a favor and do not make it your problem. You can’t hurt yourself because you want to help somebody who don’t want to be helped or not ready to be helped. You have your own stuff to deal with!Read More
Now if you know me, you know that I’ve ALWAYS been outspoken and that I tell you exactly how it is if you ask me my opinion on something. So imagine my surprise when I lost my voice and opinion once I decided to seriously date my boyfriend. As I reflect now, I blame it on knowing the power of my tongue and the importance of being “slow to speak”. I didn’t want to say the wrong thing, so I would ponder on how to say what I wanted to say and hide the honesty of how I truly felt about some things. Who wants to be a nag?Read More
I often spread myself thin by agreeing to do everything to the point I don’t want to do anything. Spreading yourself thin to the point that you are not even giving the full extent of what you can do.
Confession: My opinion about what I should be doing is influenced by what I see on social media and the people around me to the point I can’t even focus on the assignment that God has given me.Read More
If you’ve seen my video about “My Plan vs. God’s Plan” then you know that The Millennial Wives Club wasn’t my plan, it was God’s plan. Before starting this blog, I would have daily conversations with God and he would actually speak back to me in scripture. I would always end in prayer asking him to direct me to my purpose in life. One scripture in particular, James 2:14-26, would repeat over and over again.Read More
Contrary to popular belief, being single is what’s poppin!
Today we live in a world of Tinder, Bumble, SoulSwipe and everything else, where you're not sure if you really can find love or friend with benefits. Nonetheless, these apps definitely keep you occupied and not alone, entertained while double tapping and swiping right a few times, and could land you a text buddy who is readily available as often as you need them. This is perfect for the women who, like the single me, get bored easily and like to keep their options open.Read More
So here I am almost year 2 in my marriage, and I still have no urge to sit down on the couch and watch sports with my sports obsessed husband. If you recall my last blog post "My Husband Loves Sports More Than Me" then you know a little bit about where I'm going with this.
Apparently my husband really wants me to watch sports with him, so much he made a Facebook status asking people how to get me more interested. Just now that after this blog post, there will be a video coming soon because he is going to want to speak his peace on this matter #gofigure.Read More
