Forgiveness Friday | The Conversation

Faith
Hey Loves! Apologies for this late Forgiveness Friday post! The holiday weekend took over and I just couldn't catch up! How was your weekend? Fireworks? BBQ? Scorching weather? Well this week we're in for a treat. I got a question that I think goes perfectly with the next step in how I think we should all approach this forgiveness thing.  So let's get to it! Last Week's Recap: We began the process of opening up ourselves to the POSSIBILITY of forgiving. After exploring what forgiveness actually is we explored why it's important (“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you”. – Matthew 6:14) and asked God to help make us aware of relationships we need to apply forgiveness to.

Forgiveness Friday | Heart Preparation

Faith, The KG Theory
Happy Friday Loves!!! I'm soooo excited about the weekend. Mostly because I don't have much planned! That's rare for me. My Mommy is in town visiting me and Leo. That means the weekend will be filled with shopping, eating, shopping and cooking. Yes, I meant to say shopping twice. :) Anywho. With my Mom in town I thought about how far we've come in our relationship and FINALLY began planning the forgiveness series that I've had on my heart for sometime now. If you're newer to my blog you may have not heard about the Lady Victory Tag I started. (more…)

Is Transitioning a Journey of Self-Discovery?

Is Transitioning a Journey of Self-Discovery?

Beauty, Empowerment, Faith, Hair
BHP's definition of "Transitioning": No longer using harsh chemicals or extreme heat that causes severe and/or permanent damage, leaving the hair somewhat unaltered. Is it REALLY just hair? Truthfully it can be just about the hair. But chances are, if you're consistently getting to know your hair texture for the first time it's not. So much goes into a woman's appearance so it's important to recognize how our hair relates to our well-being - mentally, spiritually, and physically- when embarking on any change.  So you want to "go natural"? There are a few questions you might want to ask yourself when deciding to wear and perhaps style your hair. Grab a pen and paper and answer these questions to self-reflect and set some goals: 1.

The Power Question

Empowerment, Faith
We asked, you answered! We wanted to know if people were empowered by their hair and if so, how? Your answers were long, short, personal and touching. Thank you for sharing your journeys with us! Would you like to be featured? Send a picture and your answer (no matter how short or long) to: info@blackhairpower.com Tam'ra Cannon At work? At the gym? At home? Everywhere I go, I empowered by my hair; yet it holds no power itself. Together, my hair and I have overcome depression, anxiety, pusillanimity and self hate. I can admit, my hair, in its own right is a tough cookie. It endured the harsh chemicals, way to hot hot combs, too-tight braids and over manipulation just to become the most beautiful locks when I finally left…
