Honesty

There has been times in my life when I should have just shut up. But there's freedom in speaking out about something that tugs on you heart. When you keep secrets hinder inside of you, it eats away at your conscious. Satan loves to keep you held hostage to your secrets. But be bold enough to share what's in your heart. Honestly is better than judgment. Who the on sets FREE is free indeed. John 8

National Sibling Day!

Just realized that today is Sibling Day????? um ok...lol Well It's my birthday and it brought me great joy to think my brother Westley on today. Westley use to call me names, say that I was ugly, send me to my room, yell at me, fight with... me, play pranks on me, and made me cry countless times.....I later learned that brothers show their love in that way...lol and to my brother David Portis, I love you and hope to see you again someday.

Today

Today as I read some of my book reviews, I was wrapped in God's presence as He reminded me why I was CHOSEN to write....Praise God! I am only a servant.?...What has God asked of you?

They've changed my life

Being a mom is one thing that most little girls desire to be. When I was a child I never thought about how many children I wanted, but I was certain that I wanted to be a mom. I'm now four days shy of being 31 years old and I'm a proud mother of six. I never realized how much confidence it took to have such a big family, but found out quickly. Wherever we go, we definitely turn heads and put stare wondering to themselves how we do it. If people knew my story, they'd understand the value that I have for family. Most of the people in my nuclear family have died, leaving me as my mother's only child. It was hard growing up with siblings my whole life and by the age of 19....well, it was only me and my mother. Today I'm grateful for my children and to have a wonderful husband who's a great father. He met me when I was a widow with three kids and stuck by me as I healed. Today we have become a strong family and laugh at those ignorant people who pass judgement…

Eye contact and body language are critical when communicating with your spouse. There are so many distractions due to modern-day technology, and it is making communication skills become less personable. Lack of communication within a marriage can make you or your spouse feel neglected. It is extremely frustrating talking to an individual when you feel their mind is somewhere else. Active listening is a crucial part of communication. Have you ever heard your spouse say something and interpreted what they were saying in an entirely different way?

When you fail to give your spouse undivided attention during a conversation, it is more likely to be misinterpreted. Look your spouse straight in the eyes and don’t focus on anything else.

Giving your spouse undivided attention on a conversation is also a sign of showin…
