In February, we hosted the All-Star Moms Champion Outreach and I got the honor of spending the morning with 50 women from the Charlotte, N.C. community, who are either in the midst of overcoming or have already overcome some very Unfavorable Odds. They are single moms who face the daily challenges of raising their children alone. Some are homeless and others have been able to purchase a home for the very first time. The two extremes and those in between came together to be encouraged and to encourage one another.Read More
On January 10, 2018, I posted this photo of a bangle a dear friend had given to me that day. The inscription reads “Let your faith be greater than your fear.” Along with this gift came an invitation to become one of the Fearless Friends who would walk with her as she journeyed through her second battle with cancer.Read More
As I’ve made my way through these 365 days, there were several times, when I allowed my fear to rule my decisions. The thing is, in those moments, I didn’t even realize I was following fear…I guess it’s possible for us to operate in fear for so long that we don’t even know it’s happening.

For all of you who just celebrated Thanksgiving without that special someone you love, my heart aches with you. Yet, I pray that, in your pain, you are still able to be thankful for your loved one and the impact they had and perhaps are still having on your life.Read More
The reason I call this blog 6,000 Steps is because most of its content will be transcribed from voice to text, during the 6,000 steps I take on my morning walks with God.

I pray, worship and bring my thoughts, issues, and struggles to my heavenly Father. I love to get started early in the morning, when most of the neighborhood is still asleep. There’s a level of peace during this time, that I don’t experience any other part of the day.Read More
I just finished my first week of living Fearless and Full of Faith. When I looked back over these first few days, I realized that I was actually able to step into this challenge on day one! Before I continue, I need to let you know that over the years there has been a disconnect between the way I am with close friends and family and the way I carry myself publicly.Read More
I have determined that in 2018, I will choose to live my life Fearlessly and Full of Faith.
Take more risks and spend less time playing it safe.
Activate my belief by taking action.
Live out my dreams instead of just dreaming about them.
Keep persevering, even when obstacles arise.
Journaling has always been therapeutic for me. But I have written very little about the most devastating thing that has happened to me in my 49 years of life. I think it’s because I didn’t want to believe it was real. I didn’t want it to be true; the loss of the most important woman in my life.Read More
