How many years have you been married, and what has being married taught you?
November will be 31 years. That marriage is a job you never get time off, sick leave or a vacation. Enjoy the wedding day because every day after that is work. What you put in your marriage is what you will get out of it. Love covers a multitude of sin! After 10yrs of me committing adultery and this man still loves me as Christ love the church… I drop the mic😙
What are 3 key ingredients that have helped you build a healthy marriage?
Love, respect and just being who God created me to be. Never lose yourself for a man. Be honest don’t lie to yourself or that man everything you do in the dark comes to the light remember that. Make sure you’re IN love with him and you don’t just love him like you love your family and best friend. When you’re IN love you can survive any storm.
What word of advice/wisdom do you have for the young wife?
Have lots of sex. This releases stress, unless your husband is crazy. Stop trying to live as if you’re still single, hanging out ALL the time with your old single friends. If you don’t have kids make sure your husband is uno #1. He should not have to be jealous for your time. You’re on the phone all day but can’t have a decent conversation other than “how was your day”… (Red flag). Your husband pays more attention than you think.
What about the singles? What word of advice can you share to help the single women, who desires to be married?
Like and love who you are first you can’t give away what you don’t have. Know “why” you want to be married because with God age ain’t nothing but a number. Let him find you PLEASE!!! Learn to be okay if God says marriage is not for you.
Anything else/advice/wisdom you feel led to share?
All the originals are taken, don’t be a copy cat. Stop looking at the grass on the other side, it needs to be worked on too. Seek God in all you do, don’t let Him be your last resource. When HE speaks, listen. I drop the mic😙
Hey ladies, New Video Alert!
Over the past few months, I’ve been on a serious mission to be intentional with everything that I do. I was getting thing in order with my thinking, and my business… but what was I doing about my relationship? Well, while folding my laundry yesterday, I realized there was one area in my life to which I needed to give so much more of my UNDIVIDED ATTENTION… my marriage/honey. So my hubby and I had a talk, and we both agreed to BE more intentional 💕. That man is the bomb y’all😍.
As Keem and I approach our 3 year wedding anniversary, I can’t help but thank God for all of the wonderful reminders and lessons… and for the PHENOMENAL WOMEN in my life who have encouraged me to be intentional about spending time, growing and building with my husband!
Y’all, my cup runneth over!

I recently visited my mother’s house in Philadelphia and I couldn’t help but notice how beautifully the hedges had grown. They literally started as tiny shrubs, and now they stand nearly as tall as me. But you know, they didn’t grow over night. Over the years, my mom diligently trimmed, pruned, watered and manicured those hedges. She put in the work and trusted the growth process, as I’m sure she knew what these hedges would one day become.
But what if she hadn’t? What if she expected the hedges to grow just as quickly as her roses bloomed? Perhaps she would have over watered, trimmed prematurely, or even worse… destroyed the hedges before they were even given a chance to grow. Can you imagine how frustrating and disappointing that journey might have been?
Now I know I’ve been speaking about my mom’s hedges, but take a look at your life. How often do we rush our growth? We sometimes step in and try keep up with the pace of others, instead of trusting God to trim/prune/manicure us to perfection! (Preaching to myself). Instead of appreciating the “roses” in our lives, we too often get caught up comparing ourselves to how quickly they’ve bloomed.
Oh, but can I tell you… there is peace when you grow at your own pace!
There is truly something magnificent when we trust the growth process. I challenge you today… stop comparing and start celebrating what God has done for others. Trust God’s pace for your life, and allow him to perfect His work in you. Just imagine, how beautifully you’ll stand as you grow as God designed.
Say it with me:
“I am unique, my gifts and talents were tailor made just for me and the pace in which I perfect them is not a competition!”
His ways are perfect!
