How2Study the Bible


“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”

Colossians 3:16 

For the past two Sundays I have taken a class called How2Study the Bible. The purpose of the class was to give basic instruction on how to Observe, Interpret & Apply the wide variety of principles in the bible. I’ve included a few notes that I wanted to share with you all to get you thinking about how you spend your time in the word of God.

A New Substitute: Tea

So a few months ago I arrived at the conclusion that coffee and chocolate tend to make me break out <so unfortunate>.  Feelings were genuinely hurt because I used to drink coffee almost every morning, and well chocolate…I love chocolate! Since coffee has pretty much  been out of the picture for a few months, I’ve fallen head over heels for different teas, both hot and cold. One of my favorite teas at the moment is TAZO’s “Calm” tea. Maybe I’m gullible, but after drinking it, I truly do feel peaceful and ready to take on the day. Occasionally, a coffee does re-appear, but for the most part, I definitely suggest giving tea a chance.

Still searching for a chocolate substitute…


A Little Advice from Michelle Obama

“Hand” it over.

I love working with my hands. Whether doing something as simple as straightening hair or painting, working with my hands is something that I have always enjoyed. When I turned 25, I told myself that I would start investing more time and energy into the things that stimulate my creative side. Recently, I have decided to take my interest in furniture restoration to the next level. The process of taking old furniture and recreating it into something fresh and new is exciting! 

Check out my first piece that I did almost a year ago. I’ll post more images as time goes on..

There’s Something about Music

From Brandy to the Rascal Flatts, for me, there’s no discrimination when it comes to someone taking my mind on a musical journey. If a song doesn’t take me back to a certain moment in time, I seem to have no problem creating my own future memory in my head (if that makes any sense).

This song is a jazz twist to Pastor Donnie McClurkin’s “We Fall Down.” These words always bring such inspiration. It’s so humbling to know that even with our shortcomings we can get back up again –“A saint is just a sinner, who fell down and got up.”

Hope you enjoy!


This Food Thing


Recently, I decided to take a 2-month hiatus from eating out (excluding weekends…sorry, can’t give that up yet). Seriously, it’s necessary. I don’t know what it is with me and trying out different places, but it’s reached the point where I look at my budget and see an unreasonable amount going to various restaurants. Between eating out for lunch and trying out new spots with the ladies, there is NEVER NOT an inappropriate time for eating out.

Friend 1: “Oh, I’m craving potatoes” – Friend 2: “Oh really? So am I! Let’s go to <insert restaurant>”. It’s just that easy LOL, but I’m ready for the challenge of taking my funds back to the kitchen and into the refrigerator.  It’s going to be a stretch, because as my mom says, “food to Whitney is like an event.” And she’s not exaggerating – so ridiculous, but with all these food blogs, I see that I’m not the only one, right? Well, with the help of my family, friends and, there’s hope for an endless amount of recipes. What are some of your favorite dishes to cook?

Cheers to cooking at home!


Sangria Y Los Dinos

Last Friday, I let my hair down and invited a few friends over for what I thought would be a relaxing and intimate cookout. I wanted to throw a small gathering to just reconnect with friends and let my “inner Joan Clayton” out of her shell.

The night was a mix of fun and foolery. We lit candles, played all types of music that ranged from African Zouk to Meek Mill, lol. The sangria was flowing and my Kabobs were on point!! What surprised me the most was the crowd….it was diverse to say the least. Towards the end of the night conversation got a little intense as it often does when Hampton folks get together. We talked life, career and of course – relationships.

All in all I had a great night and next time around, I’ll be sure to make enough kabobs for everyone.
