My First New York Trip. Where to Eat and Where to Go! Budget Friendly.

April 11, 2017 // 0 Comments

If you want to travel to New York it is a trip worth taking. I live in the DC area and this was my first time going to New York despite it only being a train ride away.  What did surprise me the most about New York was the New York life. The show Sex in the city makes it seems so glamorous, and it is in a way.  But since I am a city girl, it really was just another city and the New York life was just really similar to DC life, South Beach Life (see my blog here), Baltimore life (see my blog here), or any other life in a major city.  However, there are some things that you can see In New [...]

What To Do When You Feel Judged By The Church.

April 7, 2017 // 0 Comments

I am a Christian, but I too sometimes wonder, “Why are Christians so mean?” and there have been times that I have been left feeling rejected by the church. It can be difficult when you want to further your Christian walk and go to church, but as soon as you step into the building then there are people who want to judge you based off what you wear, what you do, or who they think you are. If you ask me “should the church judge?” I would say no. The Bible teaches us Judge not, that ye be judged.  “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.  For in the same way you judge others, you [...]

How To Pray So That Your Prayers Get Answered

March 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

God hears our prayers; He hears all of our prayers even if that means that your prayers are not answered the way you like. To answer the question “how to you pray” or “does God answer prayers,” you must first learn how to pray and how God looks at prayers.    The first lesson you need to learn if you want to learn how to pray in a way that God will answer your prayers, is that God is not a genie. God will and can give us what we want, but that does not mean that He will.  It is always your right to pray for anything that you want, but God reserves the right to not answer your [...]

Bible Reading 101: How To Start Reading and Understanding The Bible.

March 7, 2017 // 0 Comments

I know for many people that reading the Bible can be an overwhelming task. I often here that people do not like reading the Bible because they do not understand it or because they do not like to read.  I used to be one of those people who use to read twenty pages of the Bible in the Old King James version and then wonder why I did not know what in the world I just reading.  When I finally learned how to read the Bible properly, I found that it was one of the most enjoyable things that I like to do know and I was amazed and how much I got to understand the history of mankind, and how I felt [...]

The Daniel Diet Versus The Daniel Fast. What Is It And How To Do It?

March 3, 2017 // 0 Comments

Fasting has become something that is mentioned in the Bible repeatedly as a way to get closer to God. You can read my blog here on fasting to get more in detailed information about why to fast and how to fast.  You can also check out my blog on lent if you want to gather additional information about spiritual fasting as well. In any case a popular fast and/or diet (depending on what you want to call it) is the one from Daniel. I personally feel that there is a difference between the fast and the diet (which I will discuss below).  But they are often used interchangeably.  Before we get [...]

5 Healthy Snacks You Should Choose Over Chips.

March 1, 2017 // 0 Comments

I have been more intentional and dedicated to living a healthier lifestyle. I have learned in the few months of eating healthy that all things count.  Eating healthy all day and then eating 4 bag of chips on top of it can really ruin a diet or weight lost plan.  I also understand the craving of wanting to snack on something too. Because in a way, snacking can be a habit.  But fear not! You do not have to give up your snacking habits; you can just chose healthy snacks Here are my top five healthy alternative to chips. Sea Weed I love seaweed, and my favorite kind is the one from Trader [...]

Discovering the Purpose Of Lent And How It Can Help You In Your Spiritual Journey.

February 23, 2017 // 4 Comments

As a Christian, I want you to challenge yourself during lent season, but in order to that, you must first have an understanding of lent. Read Mark 1:12-13 and Luke 4:1-13 Lent is the time in which Jesus was tempted in the desert for 40 days by the devil before he was crucified. (New Testament) And again when Moses (Old Testament) went on the mountain to get the 10 commandments, where again a fasting occurred for 40 days and nights before as he spoke with Lord. Read Exodus 34:28 Notice a common theme in both cases: We all get tested. We may all wander around in the desert before moving [...]

The Power of Positive Thinking, And How It Can Help You.

February 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

I remember watching a monk on TV, who could raise his body temperature to over 100F in a room that was -14F. What a wonderful example of how powerful our minds are. I believe that one of better things that God gave us that separates us from the rest of the animals is our minds. The way we think, the way we invent, the way we dream, and the way we live are amazing things. Just as this man can use his mind to control his body temperature. Just imagine what else our mind is capable of.  Just the other day I got a reminder from God. As I was telling Him something was impossible He told me that I [...]

Your Time Is Limited So Don’t Waste It Living Someone Else’s Life.

February 15, 2017 // 7 Comments

“Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” –Steve Jobs I would love to take on this quote as my own, because this is the same conclusion that I came to over the past few years. I will never forget the day it hit me.  The moment that you are in right now can only be lived once, there is no going back and there are no do overs. Once the moment is gone, once you age, or once your life is over then it is over. When you really view it that way, you will come to understand that although life seems long it is really too short to sit around not [...]

Why You Should Be Nice To People Even If You Don’t Want To & Even When They Don’t Deserve It.

February 9, 2017 // 0 Comments

Maybe I am a little naïve in the fact that I do not believe that people should be treated like crap. I do not believe that we should treat each other like crap.  I think that if we all treated each other the way we wanted to be treated that the world we be a better place.  It amazes me that such a simple concept could be so hard. That is because we are people and we have wide array of emotions going through us on any given day.  We have jealousy, anger, hate, discontentment, the fact that we just don’t like someone, or some people are just plain evil and they want to jack up everyone [...]
