More Than Just A Friend...

MrsTeeToday I wanted to take the time to tell the story of a young woman who has become more than just a friend to me.  Her name is Cleva. We met a little over 10 years ago at a tent revival.  It was at a time in my life where I was seeking God's face more than ever.  I was a single mom with a son and I was trying to navigate my ministry and being single all at the same time. ...more

The Many Sparkling Shades of BlogHer Blue

One of the greatest gifts given to me was a bracelet that I received from my two closest friends on my graduation day from university. It was without their support I would have never finished my degree. I would have crumbled at defeat without their positive pep talks when the kids were sick and the chips looked like they were tumbling down against me. ...more

At first I thought... Oh no!...more

Sisterhood At Any Age

Reservations. Check! Pack luggage. Check! Good-bye kisses to husband and children. Check! This past weekend four women met in Miami for an all-girls weekend reunion of the Oti's Girls. They had met over twenty years ago at Don Otilio's boarding house when they went to college. Excited and frightened about entering college, being away from the protection of their parents and far away from the friends they had known until then, they had no idea that they would be forming an unbreakable bond with the women they would still call their sisters twenty years later....more
