A Misunderstood Student Cries in My Class

Most of you know that I am a high school teacher. All the school districts in Los Angels either came back this week or last week from spring break. The school that I work for gave us two weeks off. During those two weeks I edited, finalized, published and began selling my new book called…

Stay In The Will Of God

Unplugging From Negativity

This week I learned that if you don’t speak up then people will weigh your spirit down and you’ll turn into everyone else.. break free even if you have to cry and walk away from people that once had your back. Do what you need to do to become whole and gain your freedom back..

Today I am 26 Years Young

On February 28th 1992 a king was born at 2:20pm by the royal parents of Emily and Joseph Towner. (Me on the left) eating cake, chicken and fruit punch! If I had a billion tongues I STILL wouldn’t be able to thank God enough. I am so grateful to see another birthday. Throughout my day…

It Pains Me

It pains me to hear someone say, “i will be genuinely happy when…” and I’m like why does it only have to be when “THAT” happens? Why can’t it be now!? Oh! I know why because you are choosing not to be happy! Happiness is a choice not an ultimatum people.

My Sins Have Made Me Numb To Gods Presence

No matter how lonely you feel throughout your day, no matter how deep in sin you’re in.. remember that God is always standing there. God will bring you back when it seems as though you strayed too far away and your sins have made you numb to his presence..We serve a forgiving God..

U Switched Teams On Me

Even though we are no longer a team all I do is think about you at night before I fall asleep… Sometimes the same ones that say they’ll never do you like that be the main ones.. You told me that you loved me too much to keep hurting me and you said the best…

I Regret So Much It Hurts On The Inside

Maybe you did something yesterday that you regret. Maybe you made the biggest mistake of your life yesterday. Maybe something horribly unexpected happened yesterday that changed everything. Maybe someone walked out of your life yesterday that you thought you needed forever. Maybe God did not open that door that you thought he should’ve. Maybe someone…

In The Dumps On Valentine’s Day

Late Night Motivation To Walk Away

There is a price that comes with success. People do not always like you and they are not always happy for you. You have to start surrounding yourself around people that reflect who you are. People that want the best for you want you to be your best. I hope this motivates someone out there…

God Show Me The Snakes

There comes a days in life when you realize that everyone doesn’t have your best interest. People will smile in your face and at the same time stab you in your back.

I Never Wanted Us To Become Strangers

After everything was said and done we reconnected. I loved you deeper than I’ve ever loved an individual. You literally knocked down the “do not disturb” sign in front of my heart and somehow you maneuvered into the deepest areas that nobody has ever reached. You walked out of my life with a simple sorry…

Quote of the Day:Pressing

My faith is so strong that whatever the answer is I am going to endure it.. someone out there is waiting for an answer. I pray this post encourages you to wait on the Lord.

Hurting God’s Feelings

It’s sad that we praise God the most when we hardly have anything, but once he blesses us we forget where he has brought us from. Sometimes I wonder how God feels when we leave him behind. God has feelings too. It’s like doing everything for the person we love and still getting treated badly….

Allowing Mental Abuse

Learning to be with people that give me the same energy and feeling. I am realizing everyday that my needs are important too, and if I do not set clear and consistent boundaries then my feelings will continually get hurt and people will never know how to treat me. I am realizing that it is important…

I Feel Lonely At Night

Whenever I feel lonely at night. Whenever I feel like no one cares. Whenever I feel like all hope is gone. Whenever it feels like the world is crashing down on me. Whenever I feel like my mind is racing with too many thoughts as my head is on the pillow. Whenever I feel like…

Student Makes Teacher Cry

“Can you give me some encouragement.” “Today is not a good day. I am feeling emotionally exhausted.” “It feels like nobody understands me.” In life we have good days and bad days. Nobody is happy all the time. I tell my students all the time, “Don’t let this smile fool you.” I am a teacher…
