Genesis 29:31-34 "Now the LORD saw that Leah was unloved, and He opened her womb, but Rachel was barren. Leah conceived and bore a son and named him Reuben, for she said, “Because the LORD has seen my affliction; surely now my husband will love me.” Then she conceived again and bore a son and said, “Because the LORD has heard that I am unloved, He has therefore given me this son also.” So she named him Simeon. She conceived again and bore a son and said, “Now this time my husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons.”
#IAMLEAH Pt. 1 -#Iam a part of a blended family- "how god took my broken pieces and blended them into a beautiful family"
For those that don't know, I am in the process of planning a relaunch event for my non-profit organization The LEAH Project. After a recent conversation with some close friends about ideas that we had for the event, one of my friends came up with the hashtag #IAMLEAH. As soon as she said it, the wheels in my head began turning as I thought of the many ways that Leah is like myself and so many women today. So I decided to write some posts dedicated specifically to #IAMLEAH and the ways that her life has often paralleled mine along with the lessons that I have learned.
Can I be transparent with y'all??? I Had a serious "woe is me" moment yesterday but thanks to my new #sistagirlhomiefriend in my head Tiffany Haddish for inspiring me!!! I know this video is a little longer than usual but hopefully it will help someone else to keep pushing!!!
Recently a friend of mine tagged me in a post on Facebook. The post included pictures of a t-shirt line that was created by one of her friends. When I saw the t-shirts I immediately let out a "yassss" because it felt like somebody had summed up my life and put it in t-shirt form lol. One of the shirts featured the slogan "Fine & Favored" and the other said "Saved & Sexy".
Now if you know anything about me then you know that I have always considered myself to be a card carrying member of #TeamSexySaints lol. Now while this may cause the church mothers to clutch their saved and sanctified pearls, I am just keeping it real. I was hot when my husband met me and I plan on staying that way. The only difference between then and now, is back then I didn't know that there was a different between being dressing "sexy" and "sexual". Now I know that I can be covered from head to toe and still turn heads as I have learned how to present myself in a way that is still fashionable without showing all of my goodies.
Hey ya'll!!! So I am super siked today!!! A lot of you have seen my "Breyonce'" and company videos, as well as my other videos discussing everything from bundles to slim fast lol. I often share these videos on my social media sites and get pretty good feedback from my friends and family; however, that's usually where the support stops. I would place the videos on YouTube and get a few views and absolutely no comments. As the kids would say, my YouTube channel has been "dry". Well today, I got my first comment!!! I know that may not seem like a lot to most people, but to me it made my day. Only because the past few days I have been feeling really down and almost doubting whether or not I should continue to do this video thing. Then this morning I got that notification that a comment had been left on my video. Someone that I didn't even know commented on my last video and said that they liked it, and that was just the little boost of confidence that I needed. So thank you again random stranger, you are the real MVP for confirming to me that I should continue to make these videos and thank you to all my faithful followers that continue to support me and all my endeavors!!!
