We Lost A Super Hero

Today is the day after Chadwick Boseman passed away. It’s a sad day for many of us who’ve experienced intense grief and loss this year. It’s especially sad for those of us who are grieving the loss of a super hero we didn’t know we needed. Chadwick Boseman left an indelible mark on us all. His work was powerful and intentional. And our children, … Read More We Lost A Super Hero

Delay is Not Denial

As I watch virtual graduations, weddings, and birthdays I’m reminded of how precious life’s moments are. I’m also saddened by the fact that so many aren’t able to celebrate with loved ones. At the same time, I’m reminded that delay is not denial. I’ve heard the above saying for years but it rings true now more than ever. So many lives have been put … Read More Delay is Not Denial

One Hundred

This is my hundredth blog post! Please take a moment to celebrate with me! In this blog I’ve shared 100 ways God has transformed me over the last 4 years. There were times when I was reluctant to press publish or didn’t share on my social media pages because my posts were so vulnerable and so raw. But now, vulnerability comes more easily and … Read More One Hundred

More Than This

I can’t believe this day is finally here! This blog, the one I started while already on my celibacy journey, has blessed me so much! It’s been read by men, women and even inspired a younger woman to continue and stand firm in her journey. I am glad. God is good. And it’s time to move forward. While celibacy is part of my journey, … Read More More Than This

It’s Time to Make a Shift

For the last few months I’ve been anticipating a shift. I’ve been writing this blog for ~6 years and it’s time to level up! Originally this blog was about celibacy and waiting and while I’m still on my (LONG) celibacy journey this blog has become much more. So much so that I’m changing the name of my blog. While single-and-waiting.com will still point to … Read More It’s Time to Make a Shift

Purposely Designed

There are plenty of things I want to do with my life. If I listed them all it would probably make your mind go tilt. Oftentimes I feel like I don’t have enough time to accomplish it all – learning 2 more languages, pursuing some out of the box business endeavors, and courageously daring to live a life better than my wildest dreams. One … Read More Purposely Designed

Deliverance

What if deliverance was calling your name? On Saturday I was at a restaurant waiting for a yummy pizza. About 20 minutes earlier I was told the pizza wasn’t ready so to kill time I walked around a bit, returned to the restaurant and found a seat near the window. While sitting there I saw the cutest baby! She kept smiling at me! And … Read More Deliverance

Purpose + Partner

In books I’ve read in the past and especially in the one I’m reading now, I’ve realized your mate is your purpose partner. Whenever I meet someone I think about how the joining of our lives could impact the world. What could our joint purpose be? What can we do together? What world issues could our partnership conquer, solve, or impact? This may seem … Read More Purpose + Partner

My Vision

Last year I went to the optometrist. Whenever I go for my annual appointment they always ask if I want the glaucoma test and I always say yes. Years ago while talking to my Aunt Barbara she said to always get the test because she has glaucoma and her doctor told her to tell her family members to get this test every year. She … Read More My Vision

The Victory Lap

Determining whether to write this or not has been bothering me for sometime now. I don’t consider myself someone who keeps up with music and/or artists. While I do know some things, I wouldn’t voluntarily include myself in a debate about the best rappers/artists unless we were talking about Brandy and/or Monica. So I write this cautiously. The reason I felt compelled to write … Read More The Victory Lap

The Talk

I went on a date with a gentleman the other day. Prior to meeting up, I had been thinking about how I would let him know I’m celibate before things went too far. Well…the opportunity came faster than I thought it would. The conversation went something like this… He asked a series of questions about how conservative I was and since I was unsure … Read More The Talk

Valentine’s Day Victory

It’s the end of Valentine’s Day and it was better than I imagined! At church on Sunday, the Pastor said a sex therapist would be talking about singles and sex on Tuesday (today). I was a little skeptical and planned on eating ice cream and reading into Valentine’s night but I decided to go. I’m so glad I did. Here are some of takeaways… … Read More Valentine’s Day Victory
