Are You Plateauing?

Lately, I’ve been thinking about issues around plateau, growth and expansion in my own life. In May, I celebrated by 55th Birthday which was an exciting time for me. However, I came into this year without much excitement, flat, or blah… After several weeks of feeling this way, I took a serious evaluation of where I have been, where I am, and where I was going as I knew I was approaching age 60 in a few short years.

It's Never Too Late To Pursue Your Dreams

On June 10th, I accomplished a dream that was in my heart 36 years ago. I was first introduced to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in 1982 on the campus of Lewis University in Romeoville, IL. This was my first college experience. As a black girl from the Southside of Chicago on a predominately white college campus, I was totally unprepared for what I experienced.

Are you living to eat or eating to live?

Genesis 1:29 records God giving Adam and Eve instructions concerning healthy eating: And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.”  While some use this scripture to teach that we should not eat meat, there are scriptures in the Bible that make allowances for eating meat such as Leviticus 11:2, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying ‘These are the animals which you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth.”  I’m not debating whether we should or should not eat meat or whether we should only eat fruits and vegetables.  The point that I want to make is that we should all strive to eat healthy.

It's Mind Over Matter

A few days ago I was sitting at my desk thinking about that morning’s workout at Tadda’s Fitness Camp. It was truly a challenging workout: jog, jump, sprint! I can still hear Tasha encouraging us to do our best as we endured a strenuous exercise routine in the heat. At one point, I began thinking, “This is too much!” I didn’t think I could meet the challenge of a drill that spans the length and width of the entire parking lot 2 ½ times. “Really Tasha?”

Embracing Change

One of the leadership books that inspired me last year was Scott Wilson’s Steering Through Chaos: Mapping a Clear Direction for Your Church In The Midst of Transition and Change.  I was so inspired by this book that it actually got me excited about something that at one time would make me cringe whenever I saw it coming and that is, Change.
