Welcome

Embracing Me is an opportunity for us to connect with ourselves...learning to embrace the God within. The post that I share with you are very real. The experiences of my life (whether good, bad or indifferent) sought to develop me into a Woman who honors the God that dwells inside of me.

For over 10 years I fought against sharing my life's experiences with the world but I also neglected to fully share my gifts. You may ask why I denied myself to live and the answer is fear! After relinquishing the fear of my own thoughts as well as the thoughts of others I have decided to do and be all that God has ordained. He chose me to share my testimonies through songs, poetry, short stories and encouraging words.

I invite you to travel with me as I journey into yet another fearful place, seeking to please the Father while providing healing, restoration and inspiration as chosen. It is my hope that these words will improve your daily living.

My charge to you: Think Well. Do Well. Speak Well. Be Well. Live Well.


"For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." - Isaiah 55:10-11

The True Killer

“The True Killer…is FEAR”

We all know and understand the impact of guns, knives and bombs.  These instruments are used to harm and even destroy lives.  Heart disease, diabetes and various cancers claims millions of lives as well but FEAR ranks dreadfully high amongst the top killers. 

Fear can take away your breath, stifling your ability to respond in “fight or flight” situations.  Some psychologists suggest that fear is connected to our innate ability to perceive things such as pain or the threat of danger.  Fears are connected to our emotions and create anxieties, worry and stress.  Fear not only helps you to respond to dangerous situations but fear kills dreams and visions.  

Monday, January 24, 2011, I had an awakening about the fears that seek to destroy and eradicate my life.  Quite literally, they are killing me.  On the onset, you may say, “killing you” and my response is, “yes, I’m dying because of my fears”.   For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of owning my own business.  I dreamed of traveling the world.  I dreamed of writing books of short stories and poetry.  I dreamed of singing and talking to people, encouraging them to live and be who they were created to be.  I dreamed of building a dynasty that would out live my thoughts and carry on for generations to come.  I dreamed of being the best mother, sister, aunt, daughter and friend that I could be.  I dreamed of loving people deeply beyond their flaws and my own. 

Why do my DREAMS have “ED” on the end...because at some point I began to fear I was dreaming impossible dreams.  However, it was Monday that brought me to the realization that I allowed and still allow my fears to guide my path.  Well, it was also Monday that I made the decision NOT to die.  With all the other killers in the world, I certainly don’t have to allow fear to be the one that kills me.  I am determined to BE all that God called and created me to be and fear no longer has a place in my thinking or my living.  I encourage you to take time and read “The Dream Giver” by Bruce Wilkinson.  This book will open your heart to all that you have allowed to die inside of you due to fear.  It will inspire you to act on your dreams.  


“No human eye can effectively evaluate your potential or your purpose(s), so seek NOT the validation of others, rather, live purposefully without fear”.
- SJWH

“For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”
Psalm 116:8-9
