Prayer

Prayer:  "A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or an object of worship." - Merriam Webster Dictionary Prayer is the way we communicate with God.  He hears our prayers and He hears our cries. He also speaks to us through our prayers.  The bible talks about praying without ceasing.  "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Praying without ceasing does not mean that you must be on your knees with your eyes closed at all times speaking to God.  It simply means that you are constantly keeping your mind steadfast on Him.  Don't look at prayer as such...

Favored Freauxs Prayer Challenge

"I call on you, my God for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer." - Psalm 17:6 The Lord laid it on my heart not too long ago to start a prayer challenge to encourage others to recondition their prayer lives as well as my own.  To be honest, I was nervous and confused.  I grew up thinking that in order to begin a ministry or to pray for others you have to be someone of a high status or a certain level of authority in the church.  Not so.  God has a purpose for EVERYONE.  If He has called you, answer the call. There is greatness inside of you no matter your position.  When I started...

My Trader Joes Experience

My Trader Joe’s Experience   I’ve been meaning to get this post up for a while now, but just haven’t made the time.  If you know anything about me, you would know that I absolutely love to eat and especially love to eat healthy foods.  A few months back, I heard about the opening of a health food store called Trader Joe's and had been meaning to make a trip for some time.  I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Whole Foods.  The hate only comes in when it’s time to check out and I’m ringing up five items for $100.  I heard that Trader Joes was very reasonable in price and I’m all about staying on a budget. Last...

Kalilah Wright: "Mess in a Bottle"

  [caption id="attachment_479" align="alignnone" width="669"] www.messinabottle.com[/caption] In the times that we live in, merely working at a typical 9-5 just doesn’t cut it anymore.   More women are leaving their cookie-cutter lifestyles and branching out on the path to becoming an entrepreneur.  Some talk themselves out of their dreams because of the fear of failure, while others muster up enough faith and strength to push through their passion.  I decided to seek out and interview amazing, everyday women who have made it their duty to push the envelope of entrepreneurship despite the challenges. It would only be fitting to feature a few of these women creating history or should I say “her-story” here on the blog once a month. I conducted...
