Day 17. #ThePrayerProject - “Clean Hearts & Pure Thoughts” Although we don’t have full control over what enters the minds and hearts of our little ones, we can surely pray that God would keep their minds pure. Tag someone who may need this prayer for their child or teen. ❤️

Good Moooorning!! I am sleepy as ever, but starting my morning off with a “Tropical kickstart” from @jambajuice. It’s just fresh squeezed mango and orange juice. Hopefully this keeps my eyes open for a lil’. I swear I’m still sleep lol. 😞😴

What I went through, happened. Who I was, existed. I needed my past and I needed my mistakes to get me where I am now. Remembering where I came from and acknowledging what I’ve gone through surprisingly makes me smile now. I know that the storms headed my way can’t destroy me but only make me better. — “…when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be complete, needing nothing.” - James 1:2-4

…and all this lusciousness grows right out of my scalp. How could I have ever believed that this wasn’t beautiful enough? Never-not-ever putting chemicals on these glorious strands again. 👑

I remember coming across the artwork of Jamilla Okubo, last year and I’m so happy to see her immense progress since then.

Okubo is a Kenyan artist and textile designer currently attending Parsons and majoring in Integrated Fashion Design. Collaging prints and paint, Okubo’s colorful illustrations carries what I see as the promise of a very creative and successful future. 

You can buy some of her fantastic work HERE

Dear Heavenly Father, although (insert child’s name here) may encounter troubles from time to time and even experience problems with unloving people, please give them the patience to endure.

I must say 29 looks amazing on me. Saunya day - 9.7.85

Lunch reads. I FINALLY got my hands on my big sis @ggreneewrites’s books. I can’t put into words how much her spirit resonates with mine. She writes soul stories. Words directly from her heart. If you’re like me and love to read books that evoke emotion and has meaning, these books are for you.

—- “The best thing you can do to make your complexity work for you is to know yourself intimately. When you know who you are, the things that make you unusual are the same things that also make you magical. You are confident and uncertain. Weak and strong. Straightforward and backwards. All of the above and none of the above.” - @ggreneewrites, Wallflower

Good Morning sunshine. ☀️
