Untitled ..

I never felt burdened by loving you.  It was all so organic; it worked as if it were created to.  We became woven into each other’s beings and together we’d grown into our own personification of peace.  Your destruction of that is a reminder… Continue Reading “Untitled ..”

“I’m Black.”

 Recently I’ve been heavily burdened with the fact that my celebration of self, seems to be a problem for some. I’m Black. I’m sure you’re saying, “Duh,” but I think I need to make that clear for all of my friends who claim not… Continue Reading ““I’m Black.””

An Epiphany…

I don’t have very many people who stick around. I don’t mean people who know OF me, I mean people who know my heart and all of its hurt. People who know my mind and why it works the way it does. People who… Continue Reading “An Epiphany…”

Rainy Day Chronicles

It’s storming; I’m writing. Initially, I was in my journal, but I figured “why not make this a blog?” It was recently brought to my attention that I don’t make my relationship status clear on social media, that if I have a boyfriend, I… Continue Reading “Rainy Day Chronicles”

The Adoption: Growth

I was skeptical about writing another blog. I’m not sure if it was because I felt like I let myself down, or was just frustrated with my circumstances. Either way, I went for it. For the past 6 months, I’ve been in what I… Continue Reading “The Adoption: Growth”

It seems like it has been FOREVER since I’ve updated you guys, but I have been extremely busy. Firstly, I graduated last weekend. I’m still a bit in awe about the fact that I’m no longer an undergrad, and I am finally a 12th… Continue Reading “The Adoption: Certification Week 2”

The Adoption: Welcome

Firstly, I really just want to thank everyone for the ABUNDANCE of support and prayer thus far. It’s only been a few days and I am still overwhelmed with thankfulness. My family and friends have for the most part been extraordinarily supportive and with… Continue Reading “The Adoption: Welcome”

I’m Adopting.

Initially, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to tell anyone about this, but I’m confident that was only fear in my heart. I’ll start from the beginning. For the past two years, I’ve been going back and forth with God about my singleness, unhealthy… Continue Reading “I’m Adopting.”

Where Did the Auction Come From…?

Lately I’ve been asked where the ‘Abraham’s Tent Love Auction’ came from, and I guess I don’t really tell the “backstory” that often… Well, here’s a condensed version: 3 years ago Justin and Emily Martindale had this calling from God to have a fundraiser… Continue Reading “Where Did the Auction Come From…?”
