Hey, Did You Know? They Are Afraid...

Bullying statistics are extremely alarming! So many children are living in this world afraid. They’re afraid to go to school; afraid to be themselves; afraid to say no to the bully; afraid to confide in a responsible adult about what’s going on in their lives; afraid to stand up for themselves. So many children take their lives each day because they are afraid…AFRAID TO LIVE!

Sometimes we as adults take things for granted. Can you think back a minute to the time when you were a child? I know some of you have to think back farther than others, but, truly, life was a little easier and simpler back then. Our kids have so much at stake this day and age and some of them have no one to turn to.

Let’s take time out to pray for our children. To pray that they find the desire to pray for each other and themselves. To pray for forgiveness and healing in our children’s lives.

It takes a village to end bullying. Take your stand in prayer today! 

How To Land a Successful Job Through Hard Work and God's Favor

It has been a very busy year thus far. While searching for a venue to have The 'I Am Not Afraid' production, I came across Pine Camp Cultural Art Center in Richmond, VA. I called and was advised to email my script and any testimonials and articles I had.

Once confirming everything was received, I was asked if I do summer programs. I advised that I was still in the process of building my cast in Richmond, yet I do conduct workshops. I commenced to emailing my workshop brochure. A couple of days later, I was asked to come in to the theatre for a tour and meeting.

When I arrived to the theatre, I was taken on a tour. It was a nice place, however, the stage didn't have a curtain and I was informed that all tickets had to be pre-sold. Those two items were inconveniences for me, so I knew I wouldn't be able to choose this venue. However, the next thing discussed took me by surprise.

After careful review of all the documentation I sent over, I was asked if I'd like to join their six week summer program entitled, 'The Mayor's Youth Academy Life Stage.' I was told I'd have to speak to the program director next, but they believed I was a great candidate for it. 

A few weeks later, I met with the program director. She explained more about the program and advised she thought I'd be a great fit for their Theatre/Creative Writing/Spoken Word Facilitator. I was floored! I couldn't believe that out of just calling to get a price on their theatre, all of this came from it. 

When you have God in your life... when you have a relationship with Him, His favor follows you. Now I truly understand what it means when it's said, "God is working behind the scenes."  When you work hard, He works harder. Now, get to work!
