Courageous and Strong

Hello all ! I want to start off by introducing myself. I am Althea, and I am a first time blogger. As A blogger I hope to encourage, uplift, relate, receive feedback and give feedback all at the same time ! My purpose for blogging is because I am a mother of 2 little guys, soon to be 3 who I love and adore. I am also transitioning into being a stay at home mom whose working on her Masters degree. One thing I truly believe is that being a mother is worth the wild but also challenging and surprising. My goal is to connect with other moms through my writing. I’m looking forward to writing through experience and also sharing stories that incorporate scriptures that will help us all in our journeys as mothers or mothers to be! I look forward to sharing my experience as well as hearing about yours! 

Cheers to my first post:  

Courageous and Strong

Motherhood, what can we say ? Is there one exact word to describe the experience?! To me there isn’t …. but MANY! Every day is different, from the time we conceive to the time we see our sons and daughters graduate and go to college. We each have our own unique experiences and stories, and even our very on struggles and challenges. As, I begin to enter into motherhood a third time I know there will be times I feel I’ve got it and times I feel like “what is this” but most importantly I’ll have to mustard up my strength and be strong for those faces looking to me. As a believer of Jesus Christ I know that children are a gift from God. I know that motherhood is rewarding and not everyone that desires the experience gets it. I know that there are words of wisdom given to us to help us raise, nurture and help us with our children. 

Psalms 127:3 tells us how lovely children are “Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward. 

Being a mother is rewarding , it takes so much courage and so much strength. Some of us go through the pregnancy with many struggles and wonders hoping for the best. We wonder how we will make it, or what he or she will be like, what features they will have. It takes so much courage not knowing but all along just having faith that they will be that beautiful creation that we are promised through the word of God. They are our reward and heritage. Some of us also face the reality of timing, not really being prepared or not getting that change to plan, but one thing for sure is “God’s timing” and that is everything! Even when we truly can’t understanding. Through our tiredness, our adjustments, our moments when we want to explode, our joyous moments, and every other exciting times our job is to be courageous and strong. We have to except and receive what we are given and then take care of them with the best of our abilities. One thing we all know is “Motherhood doesn’t come with a handbook.”Sometimes we don’t even know how we will do it, but we are graced to get through it. When we are brave we can conquer, and when we are strong we can endure. Most importantly with God on our sides and as our anchor we can make it! Be courageous and strong! 

Dear God, 

I pray from every mother around the world. I pray for their womb as they have conceived, and the wombs of those who have delivered. I pray for those who aren’t able to as they desire. I pray you give strength to her right we’re she lays and or stand. Father through you we can do all things. Through you we can conquer parenting and motherhood. Working and or staying at home we can make it. Father I pray for the both single and or married mothers, and I pray that all mothers will receive the help that they need. When they need breaks cause your spirit of peace to fill the room, when they feel overwhelmed cause your spirit of rest to flow through them. Father our children are our heritage and you have allowed us the time with them that you saw fit. Help us to be women that encourage, share, and uplift one another and we say thank you now In Jesus Name we pray Amen! 

“Book Launch”

“Cheers to my books launching in 2021” Oh what a great blessing!

I received picture mail “TODAY”, and it reminded me so much of how amazing God is. It also reminded me of how God chose me to “produce” something so great for others to be blessed by. When I recieved this picture I was in awe about the fact that all my books were aligned side by side together. All, I could do was thank God. I also begin to think about all of the amazing people in my world who have been rooting for me and supporting me so much with these. Then, I begin to think about when I first started writing because I was a teenager in Middle School. I remember always writing poems, writing really long notes to friends, taking really long notes in church, and writing really long papers.

In middle school when we wrote notes to each other I would always respond with long notes, and then friends would question me about the length of them. Those friends would say they could never write as much, but for me writing was a joy, it did hurt my hand (laughing hard), but it was enjoyable.

Still, writing for me is like a therapy, it is expressing, and it also helps me get my thoughts out, those that I probably would never express without Christ’s boldness. In middle school, there was this era when a group of us would read these particular books and from reading those books I thought that I could create books using the style that these authors used. I imagined being able to express myself like they did in their writing not even knowing that there was a style and type of writing for me in its proper timing. When I got older in High school, I actually tried to write just like them because I remembered reading those, and I remember how good they were. After going through a really bad break up it happened, I took all that I learned from this relationship, and wanted to share and give it to someone else. I went through and produced a book about this whole process. I started writing about this relationship in hopes that it would be a lesson for other girls who probably went through something similar. Later, after getting really involved in church I begin to write with a different approach to my writing.

This is where I first started to write and produce “Winning Souls for Christ A Guide for Teens and Young Adults” which is geared towards teens and young adults and expresses the importance of living for Christ, being Saved, and the truth that it isn’t boring but a life that is worth living, and I also express some do’s and don’ts (pictured below)!

Very First Book

A year after this was published and produced, we transitioned to a new city, had a new baby, and was at a new ministry! Since, I have grown, and I have learned in so many ways which has expanded my knowledge of God’s purposes and truth not only for my life but for others. I never stopped writing, and had a desire to revise my first book, which I began to take in prayer, God spoke to me that it was going to happen before the end of 2021, I started working on this project in September 2021, finished all revisions 3 weeks later, and had it was published on November 21, 2021, I did it by following God’s obedience.

My revision has a new cover, and I wrote it to explain what our soul is, and to express to youth the truth about What God is truly saying about them, and how their soul and life matters to God. I kept somethings from the very first copy but defined and added more explanation and meaning to express the importance of the life of our youth. I wrote this book also because I was one of the youth in the world at one point but God called me, purposed me and saved me before I could even understand his full truth for me! I was also living a life beneath God’s rising for me, and I was living life understanding from a perspective that wasn’t God’s truth and perspective for me. This version also expresses about the things we learn and how many things derive from us as children. I expressed how we learn from our parents, guardians, and those most important to us as children. God has a place and a plan for youth, and they need us those that are called to them to be the called and chosen so they can have an example. God wants his men and women, young and old won through the Power of the Holy Ghost. I am a witness that God’s transformation is one that is so undeniable, it is one that is forever changing. One time in God’s courts is like no place we could ever visit or go. I wrote this book with the intent to empower, inspire, draw, and win souls both young and old.

Revision 2021

It didn’t stop there for me I already had my journal format written out with the hopes to get it published by Christmas 2021. I appreciate all the amazing people who helped me from beginning to the end. I emailed my editor that helped me with my first book and asked her if we could do it, she emailed me back a few days later with a yes. I did have one vision in mind, but a better vision came out of this process, and I couldn’t be more grateful! I sent her my manuscript and this project was produced before Christmas despite running into a few problems with it going “live” on my publishing website.

I wrote this book to focus on self-reflection, I wanted to incorporate God’s words, his truth about us, a prayer, and wanted to provide a space to reflect by answering questions. I really love “my journal”, I really love that it provides people with a space to think, a space to read scripture, repeat the prayers provided, and write notes and their personal own prayers. I also love that there is a focus each month and that it is a year journal that can be used any year.

I am super excited to say “My Books are launched”, and this is only the beginning. I am super grateful and thankful at all my progress this far, without God none would be possible!

“Closing One Door to Walk into Another”

This past Friday I offically walked out of one door and will be walking into a brand-new door starting on Monday. It will be like a dream come true as I begin to embark on this new career path. Have you ever been there? For me, I am very excited, but yet also nervous because I know there is a lot ahead of me to learn and grow into. That part in itself makes me nervous. I do believe that everything will be great, and that’s exactly what I pray and hope for. I also, don’t know about you but when walking away from one thing to something totally bigger and unfamiliar “oh it’s scary”! I do know, and I do believe as God’s child that he has already gone before me and has made everything out the way that it should be. That is specifically stated in Deuteronomy 31:8, and I am truly grateful for that. As we grow as mothers, wives, individuals, men, boys, girls, whatever our state is we will continuously walk into doors and walk out of doors. Some doors will be those to celebrate, and some doors will be ones that we can rejoice over because of Gods covering, and his sufficiency. It is totally amazing to have a father who has a plan so perfect. One that we would never have imagined without his saving grace. It’s just wonderful to be able to have a father that sees your path and one whose plan is far greater than we would have ever imagined.

Normally when a person states, “When one door closes another will open” they are specifically talking about a situation when they received a “No” or when they took a loss, and they are believing that a better door is opening…, In this case for me it’s a greater transition, it’s me walking into what is a part of my purpose, it is completing a task that I started 2 years ago. As I continue to prepare myself, I look forward to learning, growing, being taught a lot of great things, and I look forward to walking into this new opportunity with grace and humility!

Cheers to this new transition!!!

“Cheers to A New Year”

It’s the second day of a new year! A new year of great hopefulness and great expectation. What a blessing! We have so many reasons to tell our Father Thank you, because when we think about how it was, we can also see how it could have been, I know I can. My family and I came through another year with no signs of COVID, we experienced many great things (new adventures), and my children attended a year of school with no outbreaks. I am just grateful.

As we prepare to go back into school I am believing for God’s continuing grace, I am also believing that those around us will be safe and unharmed, and covered. This is a new year that awaits many things I am in expectation for experiencing. I pray that throughout this year that you experience the impossible, and that you are able to experience the fullness of joy!!


“Changing Your Perspective”

Hello and Happy Resurrection Sunday, our Father is risen and he has finished the work just for us! We are so loved!

I wanted to take out this time because I have recently been thinking, and I recently realized something so important that I never really did before. What I realized is that it’s important to be willing to see self for who we are but also be willing to change and take on new perspectives as we continuously evolve. I also gained new insight to looking at all that God has given me responsibility over, that would be those things like my job, family, spiritual life, children, husband, self care, school, and all that you can think of that I might be responsible over.

You know we grow up with specifics being instill in us that we should be or how we should operate and in God living in the spiritual and operating in his direction he’ll often times change that to what we never even imagined. Recently, I had the opportunity to read a bible plan about a grumpy mom, and her perspective on motherhood and what it looks like for her and to her, in one of the first few days of reading the plan it started to talk about gratefulness, and how we sometimes overlook those things that we should be grateful for because there’s always someone somewhere who is wishing that they had similar opportunities and they don’t. She was explaining how she came in contact with a mother who didn’t have the ability to use all of her limbs because she was disabled so she often times wish she could interact with her children in a normal way. In another plan I read it talked about how we sometimes feel that we are the only ones pouring out as moms but our children are also the ones pouring into us as well when they share their likes, interest, hobbies, and themselves with us because they are solely relying on us as parents to take responsibility for them, listen, be attentive, and hear what they have to say. After reading both of these I begin to ponder on them and really realize how true they are. Tonight before I begin writing I realized that God really does know all that it takes to take care of all that he gives us opportunity to, and in that he really will fuel us and strengthen us to do what it is that’s needed daily, it’s also called grace.

In our day to day we are given opportunities that are sometimes more challenging then we feel that we can even handle on our own, and in those times of course we don’t always look at them as a opportunity for growth and reflection but they truly are, they are to help change us, show us our true selves and help us change our perspectives. Those challenging times are sometimes challenging us to see how we will react, if we will be those true examples and disciples that we are supposed to be, and to help change those deep rooted perspectives that we may have carried from child hood that God wants us to rid so that we can grow fully in and operate in the full capacity that he created us for. When we change our perspective about things our whole world changes, and the lens that we once saw from are no longer what we operate out of which is in God’s plans. There are times we don’t see clearly because we only see what we feel is right when right is something totally opposite of what we don’t even know at times. As a child of God we are meant to be changed, and when we come to Christ we are made new, we are renewed, and in that what we once knew to be has to be denounced so that the new that Christ has said yes to will become our new operation.

When we grow we are changing. In God we are evolving. What I take away from all that I read in those bible plans is to see parenting differently, instead of being grumpy, being the frustrated parent, and impatient I now see the importance of embracing, being there, hearing, listening, breathing through the not so good moments, and valuing the times that are spent! God wants us to evolve, he wants us to walk in all that he gives us with courage and strength, and he wants us to be willing to change to the necessary because what he has given is good, and it’s all for our good. If I were to leave you with anything else it would be though we experience challenges, embrace your change!

Dear God,

I want to take out the time to thank you for being such a willing father, thank you for your son Jesus because he paid it all for us, thank you for how he sacrificed so much so we could live in the “Now”. Thank you father for Jesus paying it all so we could continuously evolve and operate in the new creation that you have made us out to be. Father, thank you for being so patient and willing to see us evolve and change daily. Lord, there are some perspectives that we have that only you can help us change and correct and we ask you to do so. Father, we want to see how you want us to see, we want to operate in a heart turned towards you completely, we don’t want to walk in anything that is against your will because it may be familiar. Father, I pray that we don’t limit ourselves because you are big, strong, and mighty and you want to continuously show us things and because of that we surrender now. Father we move out our own ways of seeing, our own ways of thinking, ourselves we bring to you with nothing hidden. Father we are trusting you to give us new perspectives and we embrace them with the grace that is within, we say thank you now In Jesus Name Amen!

“Keep Trying”

Hello lovelies and gents!

Recently I heard the words “keep trying” while listening to a Live on Facebook. While listening to it I heard several great nuggets and points and even some that I was able to digest into my own life. This particular one was specifically about marriage and relationships but from what I heard those two words stuck with me the most. After hearing those words it seems like they have resinated a little differently with a lot more meaning then ever before. When I think of these two words together I get the umph and unction to really “keep trying”. For me this means in every area of my life, at work, in school, home, with my children, personal relationship, marriage and one of the most important areas my spiritual life!

As I begin to straighten up my kitchen I begin to think on these words again. I begin to just think about when we keep trying how we allow our faith to drive us, and allow God to led. I begin to think about how there is a purpose in some situations for us to keep trying, how there is a reason we have some opportunities come to us though somethings may try to pull us to the left or pull us to the right, and I realize that when you keep trying you do something over and over again in hopes that it will eventually be as it should or as you hope and prayed for. How many of you know when you keep trying God is right there with you. When you have an established relationship with God he see’s your efforts even when those that you hope just don’t as yet. He sees where it will take you, and he knows the outcome of it all. There are some situations that we feel have brought us to our last straw but with God over again is gracefully given. He gives us chances to get things right, he’s gracious and patient with us because by no means are we perfect individuals and we have to be the same way and reciprocate that same grace and that is in relationships, with our friendships, on ourselves, in our marriages and with each process that we transition in. When God is with us there is no giving up, there is victory! There is no situation that God himself can’t restore and heal, there is none God can’t guide you through, there is none that the Father hasn’t graced you to handle so just keep trying.

When you feel like you are at your last straw “keep trying” that next time maybe it, it maybe that breakthrough that you were hoping for. When you keep trying you aren’t given up, but you are allowing your faith to drive you. Keep trying in every area and the one that seems the hardest just know that our Father in Heaven can and will guide you to victory.

Dear Father,

I come to you boldly at your feet to pray for your people those hurting, those who have lost hope, those who are feeling numb and like there is no life left, those all around that world who feel like they are at their last straw. I pray God for your mighty hand to go where they are and to guide them to your grace, touch them where they are, heal them where they are, comfort them where they are, and cause your grace to abound in their lives. Father I pray for your healing to touch their lives, I pray where there needs to be restoration. Father that you do just that, I pray where there needs to be a miracles that you do just that, I pray lord where your mighty hand needs to go to stop separations that you do just that, where you need to go to stop those who are ready to give up, and where you need to go to stop those who have no more feelings left with in them that you will do just that, and I pray for these vessels that they will begin to feel you near and that you will totally have your way. I pray for families, individuals, homes, children and marriages that you will keep, help, guide and lead and I pray that your people will be people who keep trying. God you are mighty and strong and can do anything where you are needed send those who are ready and willing to help change and transform lives I say thank you now In Jesus name I pray Amen!

“God will help you”

Hello Lovelies and what a Happy New year it is! I hope that you all are doing well. It’s been awhile but I wanted to come to you this year with new content. New words of wisdom, and new life, because I know that God will help you.

What does it mean to you when you hear the words broken before God?

To me, it means being unease with who and what you are in a current state, being hurt or disappointed, giving everything you have, and all of who you are, being able to be truthful before him, yielding all that you feel that you have, leaning towards the Father, and being vulnerable.

Kjv Bible dictionary defines it as: “A state of being broken; uneven

Do you ever fine yourself in that place especially now in the midst of these uncertain times? What do you do when you feel that way? Do you yield? Do you go before him in his presence broken?

Just the other day while driving around taking my children out for the day I was in a place of unevenness, a moment of feeling unsure and there were several reasons why like parenting, I found myself in this place feeling these ways and not being able to even pray, the only words that came to me in the moment was “God all I can say is thank you”, in the moment I was uneven in my emotions, uneven in my feelings and my thoughts, and uneven with just how life felt to me. As I continued driving I tried to gather myself but couldn’t until at a later moment. We got to the play ground where the children played for a good 20 mins even there I was frustrated because of how things were going. As I gathered the children getting ready to leave I begin to try to figure out how the rest of my day would be, and what we would do once we got back home. So I began to go into even deeper thoughts about life, and what was on my heart, and what I was just feeling in that moment. In all my thinking, feelings, and being frustrated I never canceled out the Father, I included him, I included him by letting him know that I couldn’t without him, that what I was feeling was only feelings that he could regulate to help realign me for my day, and because of it God helped me right where I was. He helped realigned me to who I am in him, and into what I needed to do to find my joy that is unspeakable in him. He began to speak to me and remind me of a conversation that I had one early morning with him. That conversation included me asking God a question about tears during worship, and if they even represent being broken before him? I wanted to know.

I remembered soon after in my prayer time how I spoke to God and confessed to him that I don’t have much to give but me, I remembered that same conversation with God and telling him how I don’t have hurt to give him, how I don’t have much pain to give him, and he begin to reveal to me that my very thoughts and feelings are exactly the thing that I have to give him because it’s one of my biggest challenges that I often time face and feel, one that I feel is more then me, one that I can’t often understand the why to when I never asked for none of it at all. As he revealed himself to me, I begin to regain who I am in him, my joy begin to come back, I begin to feel strengthened, I was able to give him the brokenness that I was feeling that only he can regulate, I begin to give him my whole heart and he was able to cause me to see it clearly, see life for what it is and for who I am in him! God came and helped me.

God will help you too, and sometimes there are moments where you might feel the same, you may feel uneven, unregulated, or unsettled, but when God the Father is with you he’ll help you be all that he has called you to be, when you Yield to who he is, yield to his authority, and you are willing to see Him for who he is he’ll help you. He’ll help you right where you are, he’ll give you answers to questions you have, he’ll reveal himself through dreams, he’ll regulate your mind to where it needs to be, he’ll cause you to regain consciousness of who he is as king, regain superiority, and regain who you are as his son who he’ll never leave. God will help you, and give you proper understanding, and strength when you need it most. God will help you!

Dear Father,

I pray for the one reading this, the one who takes a glance, the one who opens it even just a little. I pray that your stretched out hand will go where they are and touch their very being, I pray that your peace will surpass them, and that your spirit will fill them with all the understanding they need. I pray for every mind, heart, body, and soul to be anchored in the mighty one that you are, and I pray for those who don’t know much about you that there is someone who is willing to be that light, strength and one you can trust to go their way. Father, I just take out the time to thank you for you being king over my life, and for never lettering me or your people down. Lord you are mighty, strong, powerful, and you are Father God. Lord I pray for your perfect will to be done in this world and in this land, when we need you most blow on us, when we feel like we don’t need you at all show us who you are, father I pray that your alignment will continue to adjust us for where we are going, and I pray that you have full and free course over our lives, I tell you Thank you now In Jesus Name Amen!

“Getting back in the Race “

Hello ladies and gents! Happy Thursday !

I have one question for you, have you ever felt off course or had something happen unexpected like getting sick out of the blue, or just life unexpected?

This happened to me just a few weeks ago. I was fine, and then “BAM” I woke up one morning and my whole body was aching, I had chills, a fever and I just wanted to lay in bed. Thankfully, I didn’t have Coronavirus. “ Wait” How about on the other end of the spectrum. A lot of different things for all of us is happening now. Many different changes have taken place. Coronavirus has thrown everything they we have ever known, done, or put together out of wack with the way we usually maneuver and operate. Good thing is things maybe out of wack, and maybe overwhelming or stressful but we are all blessed in one way or the other. I do stop to think about the fact that there are many families losing loved ones and that fact that it will be a memory for them that they will forever remember.

According to God’s word this race is not given to the swift or strong but those who endure to the end. Are we enduring despite of? Even with the uncertainties many of us are fed, many of us are able to build financially, many are able to give God praise and tell him thank you. Though many are not.

This time has taking a lot of people out of the race of hope, and put some in, it’s knocked some people by surprise while others already expected it and no matter what your process was or is I want to encourage you to get back in the race. We serve a mighty God who isn’t going to allow anything to happen until he has finished the work. There is work in us, and there is work in the world. During this chance we have opportunities to spend more time with our children, to spend more time in the presence of our home (something some of us wished for when we had to get up everyday to go to work), we are able to cook home cooked meals, and eat along side family members that we didn’t have much time for in the beginning. Now, is the time for us to stand , it’s time for us to show that joy is unspeakable, and that God is mighty , and that his word is just what he said it is true, honest, right for us. Even through these uncertainties get back in the race. Run with great faith knowing that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us enough to bring us to it and take us through it.

Dear God,

I come to you on behalf of everyone during this time. I pray for those whose Faith has withered even just a tad bit. Father I pray for the heart of the grieving, I pray that you carry them through. I pray for those who haven’t lost a thing that they will bless you daily. I pray for the elderly who have to be isolated, that you will help their minds and guide their thoughts. I pray for those who aren’t as fortunate that away is made for them daily to be connected to resources for their needs and that they will have away to get there. God I just bless you and praise you for this race. When we don’t feel so great cause us to remain, when we are tired of having to be content at this time send us empowerment and strength to endure. Lord , I tell you thank you now In a Jesus Name Amen!

“A Greater plan”

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you” (Our Fathers Word) Jeremiah 29:11

Hello lovelies and Gents! It’s been awhile! HAPPY QuaranTINE!

God is so awesome and amazing, and his plans are just towards us. They fit what we can’t see, and they fit what we can’t even imagine. It’s a time right now in the world. It’s a time where we can see positivity and negativity. A time where encouragement and God’s word is needed. It’s a time when adjustments are being made. This world has been positioned and shifted into what is unfamiliar to many, to what’s uncomfortable to most, and to the uncertain happening everyday, but I’ve heard this saying “It’s about Relationship”.

A relationship with God means intimacy Inside the walls of the church and intimacy outside of the church. It means allowing God access to your heart and mind inside and outside of the church. That intimate relationship then carries and comforts you when you aren’t in your place of comfort (At the church). A relationship in God sets you up for so much greatness, higher heights and deeper depths. We have an opportunity now to be as intimate with God as much as possible because we have time. We have time to get into his presence, we have time to pray with and for our brother and sister, we have time to check up on those people who we haven’t spoken to in weeks or years. God has a greater plan. During this time I’ve had opportunity to reflect upon Gods greatness in my life. I’ve had time to be a bit more grateful, and to also show God who he is in my life.

During this time we don’t know what the end will be because each and everyday the numbers are increasing, deaths are increasing. Just like Gods plan each and everyday his plan is increasing! He’s being glorified like he should be. God is great and greatly to be praised and he’s an amazing father with an amazing plan.

Take some time and reflect. Reflect on what’s happening, reflect on Gods goodness, and Reflect on how far God has brought you, and remember he isn’t through because his word will not return to him void, neither his Greater Plan!

Dear Father God,

Thank you for your Greater plan. Thank you for your purpose. Thank your for the opportunity to reflect upon you, and to say thank you more. Thank you for the opportunity to get into your presence and get closer to you. Father as we take the time to draw nigh we ask that you will draw nigh unto us. In this time we need you to be the vision guider. The sight giver, and the one who is in control. Father you have always been and will forever be. We pray for those who don’t have a clear view of this opportunity because they may not know you, or haven’t decided to build a relationship. Because of that we pray that they will get a chance to be introduce. Father we pray for your plan to manifest in us and in this world. Father we know, trust, and believe your word because it will not return to you void. We say thank you now for performing a Good work until the end in Jesus Name Amen.
