A Sick Life: TLC “n” Me: Stories from On and Off the Stage [Review]

I was all set to dive into this book. Not merely because Tionne “T-boz” Watkins is one third of one of the most prolific singing trios in history, TLC, but because like me, she has lived the life of a Sickle Cell Warrior. Tionne has poured out her soul and put it all down in both print and audio for […]

The 360° Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization [Review]

I recently completed reading John Maxwell‘s book, The 360° Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization. It was such a quick read that I could not help but kick myself for not having picked it up to read sooner. I’m very familiar with the fact that this is not one of Dr. Maxwell’s most recent title, but it is still one […]

The Law of Divine Compensation

I don’t know about you, but my first introduction to the author Marianne Williamson came through a poem shared by a prominent Atlanta pastor. It was her poem Our Deepest Fear. Since that time, her poem has made its way into films like Coach Carter and Akeelah and the Bee. My introduction to another one […]

When Too Many Are In Harms Way

I can’t for the life of me recall times as significant as now. I was born in the seventies at a time not far removed from the Civil Rights Movement. I saw the end of the Iran Hostage crisis, the end of the Cold War, and the Berlin Wall come down. I have also seen […]

Who Is Responding To The Blood Crying Out?

For longer than I’d care to recall, black men, women and children have become the visible targets of “justice”. Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are but a few among many of the latest to be named, mourned and protested over. Each of them have either died in […]

Did You Know That World Sickle Cell Day Was June 19th?

On Sunday, June 19, 2016, the world celebrated Father’s Day. It’s one of those days that can often become either really hyped or completely overlooked, depending on who you talk to. In fact, last year it seemed as though there was a total hijacking of the holiday as many chose to celebrate single mothers instead […]

Why You Should Not Forget Fathers on Father’s Day

This coming Sunday is Father’s Day. For some of you, this may actually be a shocker; not because of you being busy with life, but in all sincerity there seems to be little fanfare over the occasion in comparison to the level of fanfare that is given to mothers leading up to Mother’s Day. Whether […]

When You Recognize Your Love Language

A couple of weeks ago, I took some time to read Gary Chapman‘s book The Five Love Languages: The Secrets to Love that Last. While I’ve known about this book for years and have even taken the test with my wife to discover our love languages, I’ve been wanting to actually read the book to […]

Let’s Not Forget That It’s Memorial Day

The other day I happened to see a cartoon clip online that had been devoted to adding commentary to the Memorial Day weekend. It was a two-panel clip. In the first panel the father was barbecuing on the grill and turned to his eagerly awaiting son and daughter. He makes the comment to them that every […]

What Could You Do If You Saw Prayer As A Weapon?

This past Monday, CBN and Regent University began a week-long event called A Week of Prayer. It is intended to ignite the fire within the students, faculty and staff of Regent University, as well as those who work for and support the mission of CBN. Each day of this week, a different person has been […]
