Episode_043 Are you really woke?

Being a black person in America is real!! The current political climate on top of a foundation that was built on african american inequities only makes surviving (not even talking about thriving) as a person of color that much harder. This week Krystal and Christina dive into the topic of being “woke” and what it really means to put effort into closing the gaps in our society.

Episode_038 Being A Black Woman In America

Fitting in with society can create a space where we as black women feel like we must “do it all” in order to be relevant or to even be noticed. It’s easy to pick up and juggle multiple characters or personalities to accommodate the racial/social group around as to not offend or make anyone uncomfortable. This week Krystal & Christina share a few of their experiences living as a black women in America.

Don’t Get It Twisted: Knowing Your Real Purpose

2018 has brought on a lot of excitement, people are inspired to start new business ventures, workout routines, marriages, vacation planning, financial planning….. you name it and someone has planned for it.  I personally think that it is good to have ambition and drive to become a more affluent, but sometimes I think we have lost our real purpose in the mix of trying to gain more.

I know this is going to sound harsh or maybe even hurt some feelings but our whole purpose on earth is not to “start a business or get more money”; our purpose on this earth is to bring more people to Christ. THAT’S IT.  God created you to reach people and share how he has transformed our minds, hearts and spirits.  Don’t get me wrong, God blesses us with material things to make life a bit more comfortable for us, he is that generous. He doesn’t have to give us any thing but he does ( a little sweet with the bitter). 

Our joy should come from our connection to him and his goodness, not a connected to his blessings.

  1. What Do Your Actions Say About You?
  • When people interact with you do they see Christ? Do they see that you were sent her to bring them closer to the kingdom? 

I struggled with this for a long time, I would say that I loved God but I would turn around and cuss someone out like it was no tomorrow. Every other word out of my mouth was a curse word, I mean I had NO filter. I had to ask God to help me with this and he did. It took some time and practice but he stepped in when I gave my best shot.  I remember one time Christina and I created a “swear jar” where we would hold each other accountable for cursing….lol. I laugh because we struggled with keeping up with it but now anytime I get ready to fix my lips to curse I either stop myself or quickly correct the word and apologize for letting it come out of my mouth. Cursing is embarrassing for me now.

2. Are You Giving People Room To Doubt God?

  • Are you “wishy washy”? You know what I mean, you say you love the Lord but you have a different man or women at your house all the time. Or you are always getting “wasted” but turn around and post a bible verse on your Instagram page. To people who are truly lost you are sending mixed signals, to them they have no reason to serve the God you serve.

You know I am not going to talk about something I haven’t done.  I remember I used to serve on the meet and greet ministry at my church and I would turn around and go straight to happy hour with my friends right after service. Don’t judge me, I was trying to find my way.  I found myself serving in church but still doing things that I knew was wrong.  I would go to happy hour through out the week with my co-workers but invite them to my church for events and functions (smh)… I wondered why they never came… now I know.  I wasn’t setting an example for them, why on earth would they follow a hypocrite?

Take some time to reflect on the things that trip you up and keep you from being the example God needs you to be. Maybe your hangups aren’t public but they are things you struggle with in private… you know what I am talking about….(side eye)

Any who I love you all and I pray that it was as insightful to you as it was to me.

Episode_031 The Other Woman: Holiday Edition

Infidelity is at an all time high; the thought of cheating and having multiple partners is highly praised and glorified in our culture. Platforms that were meant to empower and inform the masses have been turned into stages that promote drug use, violence, and hyper-sexual activity.

This week Krystal and Christina discuss how music and entertainment are encouraging women to be the “other woman” & the adverse affects it is having on our society.
