Know Your True Worth

True worth can’t be seen, measured, or bought. It’s why popularity, status, titles, achievements, riches, and stuff still leave us striving for more. True worth comes from what God knows about you and not what people think of you. True worth is decided by God, your Designer. It is not determined by how much you’ve…

The Labels We Wear

I grew up in the era of Jordache jeans and Adidas sneaks. Think Gap and Nike. I owned neither because they were too expensive. I would’ve given anything to have even one pair, but the closest I came to them were seeing them on kids at school 🤷‍♀️. Labels are important to a young girl…

Mirror Mirror, I Don’t Like What I See

Ok, so this isn’t me in the mirror but this is my shadow/profile 😁. As warped as it looks, it isn’t far from how I see myself. You see, I have a pretty distorted view of myself. The image I see in the physical mirror and the mirror in my mind is often not what…

Where I’ve Been…

Hey friends, it’s been a while, I know. I should have updated you sooner. But I didn’t. I’m sorry. So here we are, almost 5 months since I shared from my heart to yours. The first couple months of 2020 were challenging for me. Towards the end of 2019, I was uncertain about writing and…

When You’re Too Much Yet Not Enough

I feel this way more often than not. It’s as if there are 2 personalities wrestling inside of me. One feels she is too much. The other thinks she is not enough. I think I’m too much of the undesirable and not enough of the desirable. Too much of who I don’t want to be…

God Knows Your Name

I hated my name growing up. I dreaded each new school year with new teachers because they would butcher my name and I’d have to give them the “adapted” pronunciation. I’d timidly muster up the courage to say, “Phu” as my classmates giggles and snickers. Kids can be cruel and adults aren’t kind either. My…

Identity Confusion

When you don’t know your identity, you will attempt to identify with others and lose your God-given, unique identity.

Overcoming the Pain of Rejection

It doesn’t matter who or how many reject you. God sees you. He accepts you as you are. He says you are worthy even when people toss you aside. Rejection hurts. It’s a wound you can carry with you all your life, causing you to think untrue things about yourself. Rejection makes you feel unwanted…

The Self Love Hype

Self love is the new fad. Promoting self is in. We see it with every swipe. You can’t escape it unless you’re disconnected from the social world.  I’m all for self love. After all, our Creator God says we are to love others as we love ourselves. And how can we love others if we…
