ROOTS | The Influence of Your Origins

Faith
*Grabs mic* -which somehow is found in this nook of this hill. *Tap, tap* Is this thing on? Is anyone out there? This pic is from the IDM Retreat last year, but it's a great representation of what my face is doing right now. Wonder. Excitement. Curiosity. Cuz WHOA! It's been a year. YES a WHOLE ENTIRE YEAR since I've posted here. Oh, I have almost 20 posts drafted, waiting to be completed and published....but I just didn't find the time. The good news is things are changing. NOW. Not only because my time commitments have changed (I'm a full-time entrepreneur), but because it's time I step into my purpose. Not as a YouTuber, not just as an Influencer, not even as a Blogger - but as a woman called…

Are You Really Saved, Single & Secure? – A Look Back

Are You Really Saved, Single & Secure? – A Look Back

Faith, The KG Theory
In January of this year I was asked by my friend Ashley Brown to talk about my lifestyle and how I feel as though I'm single, saved and secure. As I'm in the middle of some serious spirit work I'm just now reflecting on the interview and really astounded on how much WORK I still needed and still NEED to do. Not to say I thought I was completely good or perfect, but I definitely have a different perspective on my state of mind. If I didn't have a different perspective I would be worried. We should always be evolving and coming to new understandings of how we are called to live and love. Before I go into the things I've gained new perspective on, take a look at the interview...

Overwhelmed? Time to Garden!

Overwhelmed? Time to Garden!

Faith, The KG Theory
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (panic 'AH', not excited 'AH') That expression is exactly how I've been feeling lately. For awhile now actually. Lately I've found myself totally overwhelmed by the pressures of life. In fact...I can't really remember a time when I haven't felt the pressure (most of which I put on myself) to succeed, do more, be more, be better, work, work , work, work! I think the pressure fluctuates throughout the years but it's always there...lurking....the 20 to do lists I have for this project and the ideas that needs to be worked out. YEESH! It's like I'm trying to prove myself to MYSELF! Does that explanation make ANY sense? 6 years ago (whoa, time flies) at the age of 25 I felt the pressure of "life's achievements" so much so that I…

I Define Me Tour – LONDON!

Beauty, Empowerment, Faith
I'm coming to London Town! How exciting is this!!!! Y'all just don't know how much of a struggle it has been for me to get my mind around this greatness! It's only 2 weeks away and I'm so excited to see my London Naturalistas! I've never been to the UK (do layovers count?) so I'm also excited to see the London Bridge (I read that there's more than one famous bridge?), Big Ben and I really really want to hug one of the guards at the castle...or whatever. You know the guys with the hats! LOL! I really need your help to promote the I Define Me Tour Brunch, but Rachael (IDM Co-Founder) and I decided to go crazy and do MERGE on the SAME day as well. Yeah...we cray. We're keeping…

Faith, The KG Theory
Hey Loves! Time for another post! Apologies about the 36 hour delay :). I just returned from driving my Godson back home to Maryland. Miss him so much already! I'll be posting more about our adventures during this past week later. But check out my Instagram (@thekglifestyle) if you can't wait. Hehe. Sooo, I've got some updates!!! 1.

Forgiveness Friday | Managing Relationships

Forgiveness Friday | Managing Relationships

Faith, The KG Theory
Hey Loves! I hope this week's message finds you uplifted and feeling blessed! I'm super excited to explore some great ways in which to manage our relationships, so let's get right into it! Have you ever opened your heart and your life to someone who's hurt you? We all have, that's apart of life. We've all trusted someone that's broken our trust. We've all loved someone who did not show us love. What happens when someone shows us their bad character again and again, bringing us stress and drama? We're faced with a choice. Most believe that cutting such a person out of our lives completely is the answer, but Jesus teaches us something very different. "If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace…

Forgiveness Friday | Doing The Work

Faith, The KG Theory
Whooooo! What a long couple of weeks. I've got some confessing to do y'all! I was so ready to write this next post long ago, but then I realized I couldn't without being partly unauthentic. Let me explain... So there have been some recent developments in my life. Much of which required an IMMENSE amount of effort on my part to forgive. I found myself reading the last two Forgiveness Friday posts to try and get my mind right. No shame...but I couldn't bring myself to move forward because I was stuck. This forgiveness thing is not easy. And when you're holding on to hopes, fears and control it becomes even more difficult. So know that this journey of forgiveness is as much mine as it is yours! For me…
