And a Little Child Shall Lead Them: Getting Children Involved in Outreach Ministry

My children and I recording our Bible lesson. Early in the Covid-19 pandemic and quarantine, I felt led to spend time in worship because stress and anxiety became too much. I went downstairs into my living room, turned on my television to YouTube, and played my favorite worship and praise songs. A few minutes into my worship session, my children migrated downstairs and sat with me. Eventually, … [Read more...]

Damaged Goods? A Woman’s Worth

The abduction of Dinah, depicted by James Tissot “Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and violated her”—Genesis 34:1-2 (NKJV). Since we live in a patriarchal and sexist society, a woman’s worth is oftentimes defined … [Read more...]

Holding on to Your Peace…Even During the Most Horrific Circumstances

An artist's rendition of Stephen's death and heavenly vision. The story of Stephen in the book of Acts has always been fascinating to me because during the most violent and tragic part of his life – the day of his death – Stephen is still able to maintain incomprehensible peace and a powerful vision of God. If you don’t know the story, Stephen is accused of blasphemy in Acts 6 and is brought … [Read more...]

Facing Uncertainty: Holy Week and the Coronavirus Pandemic

Jesus alone in the gardenArtwork by Nebiyu Assefa The season of Lent, Holy Week and Easter are the most holy days on the Christian calendar. However, the coronavirus pandemic took center stage and distracted many of us – and rightly so. Many of us have never faced a pandemic or the shut down everything. No work. No school. No dining out. No congregating, and no church. These are indeed … [Read more...]

Product Review (Black Owned): Angie Watts

I pray everyone is doing well during this coronavirus pandemic. We will get through this by the grace of God. Please email me at revlaurelj@gmail.com if you need prayer or any spiritual support.

How’s Your Spiritual Diet?

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”—Proverbs 4:23 (NIV). Diet affects our bodies for better or worse. It's the same in the spirit. When I was in college, I could eat anything. It didn’t matter if it was fast food or healthy food. I could go to late night on campus and indulge in whatever I wanted. It was awesome. However, I am now at the age where I … [Read more...]

Parents, Your Words Matter

We can build up our children or tear them down with our words. This blog post comes with a confession. I like trash TV. I watch reality TV religiously. One show my husband introduced me to (I blame him 😊) is “Black Ink Crew.” I watch the New York version and the Chicago show. The show follows the lives of tattoo artists. I’ve followed the show for a few years now and have grown familiar … [Read more...]

Ash Wednesday: Why it Matters

Ashes administered by Bishop LaTrelle Miller Easterling. She is AMAZING. Followers of Jesus Christ all over the world are recognizing Ash Wednesday today. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is the 46 days (40 days of fasting and 6 Sundays) that lead to the death and resurrection of Jesus. It’s a time of reflection and repentance. On Ash Wednesday, ashes are administered … [Read more...]

Godly Glimpses

My handsome son at his first basketball game of the season with Special Olympics. In my last post, I talked about how God uses everyday situations to teach us spiritual truths. Today, I am going to talk about godly glimpses and how God will give you a glimpse of what can be or what will be in the future. Abraham received a godly glimpse. God spoke to him and told him that God would make him … [Read more...]

The Parable of the Onion

The bad onion I bought. I’m a frank communicator. I don’t beat around the bush. I don’t tell a backstory. I get straight to the point. I used to preach this way too. I didn’t see the value in stories, illustrations and object lessons. It wasn’t until I worked for Rev. Delman Coates, Ph.D. at Mt. Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton, Maryland that I gained an appreciation for stories … [Read more...]

Spiritual Valentine’s Day Arts & Craft Activity for Children

Parents have to be intentional about teaching children about love, especially sibling love. My children are going through a sibling-rivalry phase. It is annoying me greatly because they are in constant competition with each other. They compete in grades, sports, the number of friends they have, and for my affection and attention. Both want to be the star of the house with no room for the other … [Read more...]

Widow-to-Widow: When You’re Ready to Start Dating Again

My husband and I love TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé.” We love it because the relationships are so outrageous. Despite red flags, language barriers and the money it costs to bring someone into the U.S. on a spousal visa, couples plow ahead and try to make the relationship work. Some even get married. It seems like the couples on this show lose all common sense when it comes to love. This is one reason why I … [Read more...]

In Need of Good News

“Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country” Proverbs 25:25 (NRSV). Ciara showing off her growing baby bump on Twitter. Many people were – and still are – brokenhearted by the tragic deaths of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi. Social media was filled with fans, and people in general, mourning their deaths and the deaths of the other passengers of the terrible … [Read more...]

#GirlDads

Kobe Bryant loved being a #girldad. I, like many others around the country, am mourning the tragic deaths of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi and the other persons on the helicopter that crashed last Sunday morning. The tragedy hit me hard because I just learned of his daughter’s rising basketball career. A few months ago, I watched clips of Gigi’s basketball games on Instagram and saw how active … [Read more...]

The Holy Spirit at Work – Even in the Midst of Autism

There is so much freedom in surrendering our hopes and desires to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will do exceeding abundantly above what we ask or think. Two things happened today. I attended my son’s IEP meeting, and we talked about the Holy Spirit in the staff Bible study at my job. At first glance, they seem to have nothing to do with each other. However, the IEP meeting was confirmation … [Read more...]

Ezra Youth Seminary Inaugural Conference

Despite the controversy surrounding it, the Museum of the Bible is an impressive space and served us well. My nephew attended the conference also! In the summer of 2019, my former coworker from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., Tonya Miles, asked me if I wanted to sit on the board of a new ministry for youth. She and her husband felt God calling them to teach Christian leadership … [Read more...]

Spiritual Lessons from Parenting: Simply Ask

“Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake?” Matthew 7:7-10 (NRSV) This week I found … [Read more...]

Advent Reflections: Where is God?

Image courtesy of MarcusCenter.org / BLACK ARTS THINK TANK I just watched “The Birth of a Nation,” and despite the controversy around the movie, I thought it was very well done. It was inspiring to me as a preacher. I even read “The Confessions of Nat Turner” after I watched the movie. Many moments in the movie stand out to me, but one particular scene really stands out. One of the enslaved men … [Read more...]

My Encounter with Possible Human Traffickers

When I lived in South Carolina, I would drive home to Maryland regularly. I would pack up my little ones into my minivan, and we’d hit the highway. Most times, I left in the very early morning and drove into the afternoon. On this one particular trip, I left Maryland in the late afternoon for our eight-hour trip. My children were toddlers at the time, about four and two, and on the way back to … [Read more...]

My homemade “Popeyes” Chicken Sandwich

I've had the Popeyes chicken sandwich, and it is good. I don't think it's worth all the hype, but it's way more interesting than Chick-fil-a's sandwich. My only critique of Popeyes is they lack the consistency in food quality and service that Chick-fil-a has mastered, and Popeyes usually comes with a side of drama. Have you seen the news lately? Yeah. Anyway, I can't eat any of it because of … [Read more...]

Guest Post: Bible Foods: 4 Foods Mentioned in the Bible

You already know that some of today’s healthiest foods – olive oil, pomegranates, grapes – were a staple in the Bible. Jesus ate fish more than once for sure (Luke 24:42-43). The Bible has weird accounts involving food too – like when God asked Ezekiel to bake bread on a fire lit by dried human excrement (Ezekiel 4:10-17). Unlike the rare refills miraculously provided to Elisha and the Widow in … [Read more...]

When the Light Comes on: God’s Promise

The lamp my coworkers gave us. I think a lot of men are intimidated by dating a preacher. I also think some men are cautious about or completely avoid dating single mothers. That’s because we are serious and ask real questions. We’re on assignment by God, or we have children to raise, and we don’t have time for games. So, when I started dating my husband, I asked him real questions – even … [Read more...]

The Power of Choice

The player controls these characters' destinies. “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live…” Deuteronomy 30:19 (NRV). My husband is a gamer. He tries to get me interested in his hobby, so recently, we started playing a game on PS4 called “Until Dawn.” I wouldn’t … [Read more...]

Should I Wear a Cassock to the Church Picnic?

I have breasts. Does that disqualify me from ministry? Hmmmm? A contemporary poet by the name of Drake once said, “That's right I like my girls BBW, yeah…So thick that everyone else in the room is so uncomfortable.” Breast, hips and thighs make people uncomfortable, especially when they are large. I’ve always been a healthy woman or as those of us in the African-American community like to … [Read more...]

Entering a Season of Transformation: Lessons from the Butterfly

“What you have done is put aside your old self with its past deeds and put on a new self, one that grows in knowledge as it is formed anew in the image of its Creator.”—Colossians 3:9b-10 These cocoons are everywhere right in Maryland. I don’t know about you, but the Lord has been showing me that we are entering a season of transformation – at least I am. My pastor even confirmed what the … [Read more...]

What’s in a Name: Wedding Hashtags & Moving On

There are so many components to grief that if you’ve never gone through the process, you don’t know what is coming next. This week, I realized a new aspect of my grieving process – the sadness and guilt of letting go of my married name. I am getting married in October, and while I was driving home from the gym yesterday, I realized that I would be letting another piece of my late husband go, … [Read more...]

Basic Invite to the Rescue!

A couple of months ago, we changed the location of our destination wedding – right after the invitations went out. It was a hard decision to make because we knew we would incur a financial loss, but we didn’t want anything to hinder the celebration of our union. Now, we are getting married in Montego Bay, Jamaica and are planning the final details. A not-so-good screenshot of our updated … [Read more...]

Spiritual Nuggets from a Brewery 

God is always speaking - even through a brewery. *Disclaimer: I am not a beer drinker. This post is not about alcohol. I am not promoting alcoholism.

I promote responsible drinking as a MADD volunteer, and as a minister, I look to … [Read more...]

Back to School: 5 Tips for Anxious Parents

“Thus we may say with confidence, ‘God is my Helper and I will not be afraid; what can mere humans do to me?’” Hebrews 13:6 (The Inclusive Bible) Many of us are getting ready to send our little ones back to school. Some of us have already sent them back, especially those who live in southern states. The recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio do little to ease our minds and … [Read more...]

Video: Preaching at Hillendale Baptist Church

This past Sunday I was blessed to share with Hillendale Baptist Church in Dale City, VA. Pastor Gareth and I have known each other since we were children.

Little did we know that God had his hand on our lives and would call us into Christian … [Read more...]

“Brown Skin Girl” & Songs to Build Black Children’s Self-Esteem

My brown skin kids! You'd have to be living under a rock if you haven't heard Beyoncé's "Brown Skin Girl." The song is on "The Gift" album that's part of "The Lion King" movie release. Little girls are singing it all over social media. My daughter loves it. It's her new theme song. I'm very happy that Black girls have another song highlighting their God-given, natural beauty.

The Dominican Republic, Haiti and Wedding Plans

“Lauren, my husband says I’m not going.” My matron-of-honor texted me this week and said her husband didn’t want her going. I don’t blame him. I didn’t want to go anymore. You’d have to be living under a rock if you haven’t heard about the recent deaths of tourists in the Dominican Republic. I think the number is at seven deaths and at least a hundred sickened since May of this year. … [Read more...]

Trump’s Attack on Breastfeeding

Photo courtesy of Yes Magazine Donald Trump serves college athletes McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Chick-Fil-A, what most people call junk or trash food because it has no nutritional value.

Ayesha Curry Needing Male Attention

Image from Red Table Talk Ayesha Curry expressed on Red Table Talk that she wished she received more male attention because it would let her know that she’s still desirable…and I get it. As you can imagine, social media is in a frenzy talking about how she doesn't view marriage as sacred because she’s seeking male attention and that she’s focused on the wrong things and blah, blah, blah. … [Read more...]

His Relentless Pursuit: A Short Story

What happens when Jesus Christ steps into the life of a young lady who previously denied Him. “3 AM” I said to myself. “It’s 3 AM again.” This wasn’t the first time I’d awaken at that exact time. This was about the fourth time I was jolted from my sleep. I looked over at Al*. He was still sound asleep. I met Al my freshman year at the University of Maryland. I noticed him right away. It … [Read more...]

He is Risen: Children’s Easter Activity

Happy Easter from my family to yours! We are excited today because it's Resurrection Sunday or Easter. This day is the most important day on the Christian calendar because it reminds us that death and the grave no longer have any power over us.

So They May Encourage the Young Women: Why We Grieve with Lauren London

Many of us were shocked by the murder of rapper and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle, 33. Based on reports, he took an impromptu trip to one of his retail stores and was shot repeatedly after taking a picture with a child. At the time of his death, he was dating actress Lauren London. They have a son together in addition to Hussle’s daughter from a previous relationship and London’s son from her … [Read more...]

Consistency on the Vine

I have a relatively new retainer. I haven’t had a retainer in over five years because I broke my last one. My teeth look like I haven’t been wearing a retainer at night too. The gap that closed when I had braces in my early twenties reappeared. So in my effort to be strikingly beautiful on my wedding day, I saw an orthodontist to have another retainer made. Since my teeth shifted so much I have to … [Read more...]

We just selected the resort, started our premarital counseling, I bought my dress, and the ball is rolling so I'm going to be talking about it a lot! … [Read more...]

Astroworld, the Momo Challenge and Demonic Attacks on Children

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” 1 Peter 5:8 (NIV). I attended Travis Scott’s “Astroworld” tour. I have a connection in the industry and was able to attend the concert for free. I didn’t know anything about Scott’s music.

To the Mother of the Girl Who Called My Daughter Ugly

Your daughter told my five year old she wasn’t beautiful in their ballet class last weekend. However, it didn’t upset my daughter too much because I’ve been preparing her for this day since she was born. When I found out I was having a girl in 2012, I knew the challenges my daughter would face as a black girl. I faced them myself. During my first two years of high school, I was one of very few … [Read more...]

Widowhood, Ministry and What Now

The day I was ordained. She had no idea what her "Yes" would mean. You don’t recognize the toll grief takes on your mentally, physically and spiritually oftentimes until in hindsight. I didn’t know in 2013 when my husband died that I would fall into depression once the shock wore off a year or two later. No one told me I would put on weight because of it. So not only are you burdened by the … [Read more...]

Getting Specific in Prayers for Your Children

Advent Season: The Only Sign You Need

It seems to me that this generation is infatuated with seeking signs. I have seen many posts on social media referencing numerology and signs in repetitive numbers. There are a host of television shows centering around mediums who work with people searching for signs – signs that they’re making the right decisions, signs from their deceased loved ones and signs of desired healing. However, in … [Read more...]

Teaching Children Inclusion

Last week my son had a horrible time in school. He’s been extremely frustrated because other children don’t include him in basketball and soccer during recess. My son is highly functioning autistic, and for many years he didn’t care if other children wanted to play with him. Most of the time, he wandered around by himself in his own world. Now, he’s reached a point where he wants to be included, … [Read more...]

Book Review: Simone Visits the Museum

After church on Sunday, I went to one of my favorite local restaurants, Franklin's, and I stopped in their general store after we ate, and I found this gem, Simone Visits the Museum by Dr. Kelsi Bracmort. It grabbed my attention because the characters are African American, and the book has awesome illustrations. I always make it a point … [Read more...]

A Back-to-School Prayer

My little ones start school next week, and I, like many parents, are filled with trepidation. My youngest starts Kindergarten, and I’m praying she can adjust to school and will be emotionally strong enough and wise enough to deal with students and teachers. I do my best to equip them to handle people and certain situations, but I’m always concerned if they’ll be able to stand firm in their beliefs … [Read more...]

Sermon: “Willing to Risk it All”

My pastor, the Rev. Dr. Lee P. Washington, is retiring next year, and I'm so grateful for the years, 15 to be exact, I've spent observing, sitting under and learning from him.

His ministry and reputation have made it so that wherever I go, I'm received with open arms because people know I've been … [Read more...]

Product Review for Back to School: Miss Zee African-American Book Bag

I first learned about Miss Zee from Facebook. I saw an advertisement of one of the book bags, and I always wanted to purchase one. Miss Zee sells book bags, decor and stationary with African-American characters on them. Now that my youngest is going to kindergarten in September, I decided to give Miss Zee a try. Well, my daughter's book bag arrived in the mail last week, and I'm in love. I am … [Read more...]

The Father Factor: Lessons from Biking & Blending a Family

“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord” Ephesians 6:4 (NIV). I spent my formative years with my mother. By the time my father became a steady presence in my life, I had many walls up because of his absence the first 14 years of my life. As a result, I never developed a normal father/daughter relationship. I don’t know … [Read more...]

Homemade Ground Turkey Empanadas

I LOVE Latin food. I love Peruvian, Cuban and Mexican food. Recently, I discovered one of my favorite lunchtime restaurants makes chicken empanadas. I've had them at least twice now, and they're great. However, I wanted to see if I could make them myself. I know grocery stores sell frozen ones, but frozen food has so much salt. I want fresh food. So, here's my attempt at empanadas. Click HERE for … [Read more...]

Emerging from the Ashes

I drive by this house every day. When I first saw it, it did not have a second floor. I don’t know what happened—fire, natural disaster, or general wear and tear—but this house used to be one floor with the top half ripped off. Exposed to the elements, this house was open and vulnerable. It was downright ugly and an eye sore. I’m sure its lack of curb appeal bothered the neighbors. It probably … [Read more...]

MADD Volunteer Work, Noah on Patrol and How God Uses Us to Intercede in the Earth

I volunteer for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

Minding Your Garden As You Get A Little Older

It’s no secret that none of us are getting any younger. As we age, even getting into the earliest parts of our middle ages, we get tired a little more easily. As we get older still, we can get injured by pushing ourselves too far. As much as you might want to give your garden the care it deserves, it’s important to think of easier and less effort-consuming ways to get it done to ensure you’re … [Read more...]
