Journey to Marriage: Moments of insecurity.

Imagine an emotional roller coaster— one moment you feel like you’re being looked at like you are the most beautiful woman on the planet & another you’re as insecure as can be. I wasn’t scared that the man I was falling in love with was talking to someone else or was considering another person, rather that I wasn’t being validated the way I wanted. You see, it took him 2 years before introducing me to his parents. That was honestly the most painful part. I grew up in a very family-oriented home and I was taught by my father that there is nothing more important than family. Just put yourself in my shoes… I was a wreck. The enemy was putting thoughts in my mind that had no place being there. “You’re not good enough to even meet them”, “if you where really ‘the one’ you would have met them by now”.

We spoke music, life experiences and the tables began to turn. Amner was fascinated with the way God spoke to me and called me out and I was admiring his various spiritual testimonies and encounters. I remember it like it was yesterday, the night took over and we …

Journey to Marriage: How we met.

Lets go back to 2011, it was my junior year of High School. With that said, this so happened to be the school that the Lord led me to. It was truly special. Its where I received a christian education, learned how to read the word, worship and sooo much more. This school hosted an annual home-show, where the acrobats (a team I became a part of the moment I stepped in) would preform and showcase everything they learned in a uniformed manner for their friends and family. Anywho, I was in the midst of running back stage after my scene ended as the “ring-leader” of the “circus” part of the home-show. I remember changing and peeking through the curtains to see how my team mates where doing. I was focused and ready for the next part of the show and I heard a mans voice behind me, “You’re hilarious.” I didn’t know what to say expect “thank you” and walk away. Mind you, at this point I didn’t know who this guy was… He …
