Mother, wife, sister, friend, writer / blogger / creative organizer, budding photographer... These are just a few of the many hats I juggle each day. I believe creativity is oxygen for the soul. I created Live In Color blog to celebrate the beauty in every moment, from faith to inspiration and motherhood.And it is soon becoming Pray with Our Feet blog which will focus on the intersection of faith and activism.

So this popped up on my LinkedIn feed. It’s such a powerful reminder to live in gratitude and be present. 

During a few rare quiet moments yesterday, I discovered  Iyanla Vanzant’s audiobook, Finding Faith in Difficult Times. She gives us so much to think about and act upon as we hold fast to faith in challenging situations.

One of my favorite writers / thinkers Iyanla Vanzant on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday making me laugh and throwing some wisdom all at the same time! Her latest book is Trust.

Do you struggle with faith, particularly in seasons of difficulty? I pray this post from my new IG blogging friend, Tiffany Parry, “When Sunday Feels Broken,” lifts you up, and reminds you, we’re all in this walk together.

Helpful blog post on everyday ways to reward yourself after accomplishing goals. Self care is a critical part of our own growth.

This rich dialogue with Barabara Smith and other dynamic women on black feminism, the LGBT community and the black lives matter movement.

Oh Lianne La Havas, your music makes my heart soar! “Unstoppable” is such a sunny-day, open-your-sunroof kinda song!

Positivity starts in the first 15 minutes of our day. Short but insightful blog post!
