As I’ve mentioned before, I have a strong “Do too much” spirit. Where rest feels useless and productivity becomes a snare. According to my enneagram number (I’m a 3. Don’t ask me what wing 😂), at my best, I am an achiever that inspires others. At my worst, I am a work-a-holic who’s afraid to fail. It sounds about right but, I’m glad a personality test doesn’t have the final say over who I am and who I am becoming.

He’s got the whole world in His hands.

The kind of picture I’ll remember when her hands are bigger than my own.

To rest well, you gotta be okay with believing that God doesn’t stop working just because you did.

It is rare that you will find a Christian that has prayed ,”Lord, make me more like you.” and He hasn’t used the church to do it.

I started my locs in 2012 with some reglah’ ol two strand twists. By that point, I was tired of relaxers, having to get my ends clipped, wrapping my hair every night (which I could never get right) and being terrified of how one humid day could change my whole hair texture. So, I chopped it all off. Found a solid loctition that knew what she was doing and started this here loc journey. I’m so glad I didn’t give up when I was going through that “Why do I look like a 13 year old boy?!” stage because the wait was well worth it.

As someone who doesn’t trust easily, I’ve come to know that what I call a “trust issue” on the surface is a fear issue at the root. I don’t trust you because I’m afraid of you. Afraid that you’ll bring me pain. But what fear won’t say is what if they’ll give you love. What if.. | 📷 x @jaylonashaun

Therapy hasn’t made me whole but it’s sure made me better. || There’s no shame in getting help.
Only healing. ❤️

‘Gay Girl, Good God’ has been out for a whole week now and I can’t tell you how blessed I’ve been by every picture, tweet, DM, and story I’ve gotten. As I said in the introduction, I wrote this out of love and as mentioned in the afterword, this work is also my worship unto God. I’m grateful for the chance to share both with y’all. If you’ve finished the book by now, which I know many of you have, let me know some of your take-a-ways from the book in the comments below 👇🏾| Pictures: @laurenlight95, @bjhawkains, @littlemrscourt
