P014: Selfcare is Vital Interview with Lashon at My Crazy Life Pt. 1

I came across a quote that has hit me and it goes like this: “Self care is not selfish, you cannot serve from an empty vessel.” this quote is by Eleanor Brownn. When I came across this, it reminded me that as women, do we really know how to take care of ourselves? We tend to serve so much of ourselves for our family, children, husband, work, church, etc. on “E” (Empty) and just like a vehicle, when the car is on “E” the light comes on telling us that its time to fuel. Our bodies and spirit does the same thing, but as the times go, we ignore it, we say,” I can go a little further”, but is it really doing us any good to drive, or serve [Continue Reading…]

A Godly example from a prostitute (Review & Giveaway)

Rahab1

The Crimson Cord: Rahab’s Story Book Review This book: The Crimson Cord (Rahab’s Story) gives a real look at her life. In the bible she’s known as the prostitute. In this book, the author, Jill Eileen Smith gives a behind the scenes look at her life and how she became a prostitute, the bible doesn’t give us that look but what we do know is her bravery and sacrifice she gave to protect herself and family.

What is LOVE… It Never Gives up!

I began the beginning of the definition of love here. Today I will finish the series on LOVE with this: ( 1 Corinthians 13:2-13). What is LOVE… It Never Gives up! If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it [Continue Reading…]

Garlic Haircare Review

Garlic

I LOVE to try natural hair products, natural enough for all my girls. When I think of natural hair care products with natural ingredients, my first thought is not garlic, but I had a wonderful opportunity to try this on my daughter and she loved it. The last time I used these products on my daughter she had locs. We changed up her hairstyle and changing the products used as well.   The NAAT Garlic Magic line is amazing. Aside from the magical fact, that it does NOT contain a garlic smell from the garlic extract, it has fabulous benefits including: -Restoring hair to a strong, healthy and natural state -Formulated with garlic extract -Fresh, clean scent. No garlic smell! -Fights dandruff, excessive oiliness and hair loss -Suitable for all [Continue Reading…]
