My brother is my hero.
The perfect dose of “bring me down to earth,” when my head is too far up in the clouds.
My “stop over thinking it, and be easy” guy. My “lets speak in pidgin english for hours.” With you I am free to be me. I don’t have to be strong or wise - you do all of it for me. I love you man @brando_047. I’m SO glad you’re my brother, and I miss you SO SO much! 💙💙 #bestguy #myguy #Dero #yourestillannoyingtho #fambam

Cheesing and glistening in the sun with my brother @kofiashon, thank you for always making media rounds a little less intense. 💙

Thank God we don’t look like how our day was.
Thank God we don’t look like the mini meltdown we had the night before.
Thank God for friends who prop you up, for love that keeps you grounded, and for the glorious presence of God that keeps you rooted.
Everyday is a testimony, a living, breathing testament to God’s goodness and faithfulness.

Meanwhile I love the “hotness” of Ghana sun, it doesn’t feel like it’s going to scald your skin off, unlike Naija sun.🙄🙄
Perhaps also explains why Ghanaians are black like they bake them in the oven.😆😝😋 #workmode #grateful #melanin #sunkissed

I’ve always like Gabrielle Union - mainly because there’s a girl-next-door, chilled-laidback quality that I’ve always sensed about her. She brings truckloads of that and a generous sprinkling of humour to this book.

@gabunion keeps it EXTREMELY real with this one. This is what the journey to self looks like - there are a lot of twists and turns, dips and bends, wins and loses, friendships, relationships, and she’s talking about it all with humour. Yea. Even the uncomfortable/difficult stuff. I especially love the agency that comes through. She’s the author of her story, and she’s telling it her own way. That’s extremely powerful and inspiring. As women we are socialized to blend in, to smooth out all our edges, to be less than our original selves, because the world maybe uncomfortable with our authenticity. Then we find ourselves, or at least we begin to, and finally ditch all that bullshit.

The chapter where she writes about Prince; she captures his essence so powerfully and the fact that he was a “connector,” especially to black people. This book is laughter, learning and humorous wisdom. Love it!! 💙💜🧡 #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #greatreads #autobiography

Selfies with Bible Girls by @lajuiren
.
.
Nearly every story in this book made me teary-eyed, and I’m not even sure why. Maybe it’s because I could see myself in many of the characters, maybe it’s because the humanity of all the women listed was captured so beautifully. If you’re a flawed woman, the kind who’s aware that Grace is the only reason why you stand - then read this book. There are not many books that make you feel understood- this one does. It’s hugely, deeply important to take “selfies” with “bible girls,” “just like you.” Through this book, Laju allows you see bible characters through the prism of humanity. It’s a beautiful gift that she had. I didn’t want to, or should I say couldn’t put it down. Thank you for the beautiful gift @lajuiren ❤️❤️ #favebooks #greatreads #LajuIren #greatgift #grateful
