These are some of the topics in many conversations that are discussed by parents, families and others who are ready to improve their home lives for more capable children.  Many forget that families are society’s smallest social units and important to its functioning.  This…

Is God Really Getting His Money's Worth?


So, here's the question:

With all of the preachers we have produced throughout African-American history (and I'm one of them), with all of our degrees, and with all of the money we've spent acquiring them, with all of the funds we've raised and all of the ministries (and buildings) we've built; with all of the conferences…

Author Expo : August 18th

The Author Expo was definitely an experience! I truly enjoyed myself! I was a ball of nervousness but as the day progressed, I became more at home. I found it interesting how the way I looked made an impact on my book. I am 31 but I appear to be a teen/early 20's.

Next year I will be ready!!!! Thank you…

He is NOT Listening, are you?

Did you know that men and women really do communicate for different reason? There are many articles written about these differences. Psychologists think that men converse as a way of negotiating their status in a group. While women use conversations to bond and gain closeness. Many times, females reveal a lot about themselves in conversations, their words are more intimate. It is no surprise that women tend to bond over tea and girl talk and men bond while…
