(In case youv’e not been keeping up with my recent hair drama, go here. From a smooth perm & cut last Winter (which I loved)… …I began a new hair phase. I made an effort to spend no money on my hair which then led to weave ponytails to 1/2 permed, 1/2 natural hair and […]

Christians with Exorbitant Wealth? Christians in Poverty? What’s Wrong with this Picture?
A guest post from: Mystery Guy from CA I spoke to a Christian business owner last week.

The current conundrum is that for baby boy’s middle name I want a family name from my Father’s side to celebrate our baby’s African-American heritage. […]
In the Case of the Missing Swiss Cake Roll Horcrux
Though he won’t admit it fully, my husband is addicted to chocolate. Whereas I can eat my chocolate treats slowly over the course of a week or two, he’ll devour every last piece of chocolate in our house in a day or two. In order to make peace we decided we would each get the […]
