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…

I Tried Committing Suicide 3 Times

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

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…

My Father Had A Stroke (Update) 6 Months Later

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…

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…

Make Time For Your Dreams Before Time Passes You By

I’ve only had my blog for about two month now. I have been getting so much love and support from you all. I wanted to take my blog to the next level, so I decided to design my own business cards. I am so excited for this journey. It only goes up from here. It…

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..

Choosing Not to Use the Strength that God Has Given You

i woke up this morning thinking about how sometimes we get mad over situations that we are in or our inner struggles and demons that we fight against.. in order for everything to stop and for the cycle to end then we must make a conscious decision of not going back to those things that…

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.

I Defend You In My Own Mind

An Open Letter To.. As months passed by you said that we were a team. I took that to heart because you said that we made the best team in the world. I know it sounds cheesy but you begin to see life differently and you let your years of guards down when you start…

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…

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…

Stop Boxing God In A Church

I cannot wait until church tomorrow, but I’ve learned that loving God isn’t about going to church every single Sunday. I’ve learned throughout the years growing up and maturing that so many people go to church every single Sunday but do not have the love of God inside of their heart. Some people even think…
