Sometimes people or things are in plain sight; we see but choose to ignore them.

As a child, adolescent and teen, I lived in a two-story house along with my parents and siblings. Mom and Dad slept in a downstairs bedroom and our rooms were upstairs. With a family of 5 children, laundry was a routine chore for our mother.

Mom had reason to complain. She washed, dried and folded our clean clothes. Finished, she stacked them on bottom steps of the stairway to be carried u

Be Healthier With Veggies


The new food guidelines issued by the United States government recommend that all Americans eat between ve and nine servings of fruits and vegetables each and every day. When you rst hear that number, it may seem like a lot, but it is actually much easier than you think to t that many servings of fruits and vegetables into your daily diet. For one thing, the shelves of the grocery stores are fairly bursting with fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, vegetables and fruits are some of the le

In our world today, everyone uses the word love, even when they don’t understand what love is. For example, we see two women having sexual relations with one another, some going to the extent of even getting married under the name of love. That isn’t love; it is an abuse or misrepresentation of love. A man bruises and batters your face on a regular basis and you say he loves you, he just has a problem expressing his emotions. The further away we are from God, the easier it

When Starting a New Challenge it is important that you have a strategy and motivation.

A rock climber cannot just start climbing the side of a mountain without first examining the terrain. They must find the best route to the top, which way will be the safest? As we start a new challenge we must determine what our Goals are and what will keep us going when we get tired? A rock climber cannot decide what to do after they get tired. You cannot decide what to do after you

Who doesn't own at least one T-shirt? Someone once said "to err is  divine, to wear a t-shirt is just plain comfortable". 

Ok, I made that up, but it's true, what feels better than a good, old  fashioned worn-in basic t-shirt? As far as I'm concerned, nothing!

Toledo, OH - man-i-fest [verb]: display or show (a quality or feeling) by one’s acts or appearance; demonstrate. Ohio emcee iNTELLECT is never one to keep hidden the motivation that drives his creativity. In the world of Christian rap, where motives can be questioned on a daily basis, transparency is key. It is not enough to claim what you’re about, you have to be willing to demonstrate that you live out the new life found in Christ.


iNTELLECT, and fellow Christian rap artist Minister Squad,

Antioxidants are all the rage today. And, justiably so. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals which cause cell damage, which ultimately can lead to diseases of the heart and cancer. It seems everywhere you go it's blueberry this and blueberry that. You have your choice of wild blueberry juice, blueberry pomegranate juice, blueberry-cranberry juice and so on and so on. 

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love blueberries. But, in our rush to embrace the latest antioxidant food craze (blueberries, cr

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.New and better things come into being when we modify--alter or change something--even slightly. Life is change, so you can use the wisdom and creativity of God in you to change things, from recipes on! --Isaiah 43:19, AMPC

Acts 28:1-6 – “Now when they had escaped, they then found out that the island was called Malta.  And the natives showed us unusual kindness; for they kindled a fire and made us all welcome, because of the rain that was falling and because of the cold.  But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand.  So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, ‘No

Dedication is also another prerequisite to being able to achieve many things impossible or otherwise. It is often one of the most important factors needed to be in place and evident even before a project is embarked upon.

Stay Focused


Some of the ways to stay as dedicated as possible are as follows:


  • Having a love for what is required in terms of work processes in the project is important. Those people who tend to focus on the end goal rather than what it takes to get there,

Pain pain, pain, never has so much been crammed into one word. The pain of depression feels terrifying. Your world is dark, heavy and painful physical pain. You think, would be much better. At least that pain could be localized.


Instead, depression seems to go to your very soul, affecting everything in this path dead, but walking is one way to describe it. You feel numb. Perhaps the worst part is that you remember when you actually felt something and the contrast between then and now just make

Ask the children; they know.

God is great.

God is good.

“My soul, praise Yahweh!
Lord my God, You are very great;
You are clothed with majesty and splendor (Psalm 104:1 HCSB).

The children know.

“The blind and the lame came to Him in the temple complex, and He healed them. When the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonders that He did and the children shouting in the temple complex, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’ they were indignant and said to Him, ‘Do You hear w

Think about it…

You won’t need a thing!

If you watch TV, you’ve seen commercials.  I’d guess that (like me) you’ve been enticed to buy their products and thought ‘I need that.’

Maybe you did; maybe not.

Capitalism is not evil; it helps us fill basic needs.

All of our needs are temporary. The adage is true; you really can’t take it with you.

It’s foolish to try. The LORD is preparing everything for the saved.

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, belie

God knows the future and all the hurdles we have to face before getting to our destination. He knows what we have to pass through. He knows the steps we must take to get to our particular destination. This is why it is wise to walk with God. When you are walking with God, you are assured of where you are going.


You know for sure that you will get to your destination because God leads you. The Bible confirms this in Jeremiah chapter 29:11, which says,

For I know the thoughts that I think toward

My Mom was a whiz at word games; family and friends knew that she was usually a winner at bridal and baby showers.

I remember that she was an avid viewer of the Wheel of Fortune program and worked TV Guide and newspaper crossword puzzles.

I don’t recall her playing Scrabble but can’t help but wonder what words she would have formed from the letter z.

Personally (as a baby boomer) the first thing that comes to mind is ‘Z for Zorro!’

Maybe, instead of relying on memory

Staying excited is a very important tool to ensure the mind set does not give up half way during the project started. This will not only be a bad habit to pick up it will also cause detrimental effects in the long run.




The excitement factor will always be able to motivate an individual to keep moving forward toward achieving the goals set. This key ingredient is what attracts people to consider or embark on a project. Those who stay excited have the positive mindset tha

Do you believe that your blessings are hidden in plain sight? Or you belong to the school of thought that says your blessings are a must from hidden and mysterious places?
For something to be in plain sight, it typically means to be somewhere where it can easily be seen. So how are your blessings hidden in plain sight?
Sometimes, This can simply mean that there is a major change about to happen. God is about to do some major thing in your life that you might have been asking for, for a lo
