Teaching At THEE Toughest High School in California

According to California Educational Data I work at THEE toughest high school in California. It has been a blessed year by God.

Is Life Hard Right Now?

God is bigger than anything that you are facing at this moment. Don’t allow earthly problems or situations cause you to lose focus on the bigger picture. God is moving behind the scenes and he is working it out even when you don’t feel like he’s moving fast enough. Continue to stay prayed up and…

God Is Moving On My Families Behalf

I can’t say it enough. I am so grateful and blessed for my dad to be back home. It’s been 7 months and he is finally back home. I bought my mom and sister food for an early Mother’s Day dinner since I have to be back in Los Angeles tomorrow. My brother is on…

I Believe In Everyone But Myself

I pray you quit overthink, replaying failed scenarios, feeding self doubt and seeing the good in everyone but yourself. You deserve more and I pray that God shows you the strength that you have inside. You are stronger than you think. You have more control over your life thank you think. I pray your days…

Being A Teacher Is the Lords Work

When educators go to college professors say, “As a teacher you are not your students friends or family. You are ONLY their teachers. You are only there to TEACH.” That is the biggest lie of all time. And that philosophy will make your teaching experience hell. When you work at a low income schools you…

A Teenage Boy was Searching for Answers in my Book

A teenage boy that was searching for answers about his own life experiences once asked me, “Who is the main character in your book..?” I simply replied with a silly smile on my face, “Who’s the first person you think about when you’re flipping through the pages of my book? That’s the main character.. years…

Just Breathe… And Stop Stressing Yourself Out

I am worried that life won’t turn out as planned.. What if everything fails? One thing I’m mastering everyday is to just breathe. There are so many people stuck in the hospital that wish they would’ve just enjoyed life but some tragic situation handicapped them for the rest of their lives and unfortunately some people…

Your mind is telling you to Kill yourself.. you’re not good enough… no one loves you.. your life is meaningless.. you’re a failure.. You have no friends.. Nobody is going to miss you when you’re gone.. What you did is unforgivable and when everyone finds out what you did…you’re going to lose everything so you…

A Misunderstood Student Cries in My Class

Sometimes I Don’t Feel God

You will experience times in your life when everything is going perfectly planned. Every job offer you wanted will be at your finger tips, that boy or girl that you dreamed about being with will come into your life, or maybe that prayer that you have been seeking from God has finally been answered. Those…

Reunited & It Feels So Good

It took me 6 hours to drive from Los Angeles all the way to the Bay Area. My whole family lives up north and it’s a blessing to be able to feel the love, support and prayers all the way in SoCal. Family to me is EVERYTHING. I only get to come down for the…

Stay In The Will Of God

Sometimes the plans you have for yourself are different than the plans God has for you. It is important to pray for the will of God because everything that sounds good that we have planned isn’t necessarily good for us in the long run. We have to make sure we keep our faith strong and…
