In my Hello April post, I tried to bring words of encouragement about perseverance even when you feel like giving up. The last quarter is gone and you can only work with what you have within […]

It’s indeed a New Season and It’s a New Day. I woke up this first day of April at 4am for some reason – I just couldn’t continue sleeping. So I laid there pondering on the fact that it was a New Month and a New Quarter for that matter. Like I usually do, I wanted a word from God about this month and God dropped a phrase into my heart: “A Time of Refreshing”. […]
