Hello, my beautiful readers! This will be a quick post, but I want to give you guys a few updates as we head into this new month.

Can you guys believe 2019 is already halfway done? Now, that’s a wild thought! Thank you all so much for writing and keeping me updated on your journeys this year, and I truly hope and pray that your year is as good-natured and amazing as you are.

In the Southern United States, we’re headed into the worst months of the year weather-wise, since the humidity is close to unbearable. But it is always nice getting a few pop-up thunderstorms to cool down, reflect on life, and read a good book. Without further ado, here are a few updates I want to give you guys!


This is a long time coming, but I am the happiest I have been in a long time. The past few months have been slightly little off-kilter for me, considering that I was focusing more on relationships than writing, and now that I’m free of that, I’m back to my craft!

Right now I’m close to finishing the romantic comedy novel, Church BoyI aim to polish the manuscript and send it off to agents at the end of this month. Once Church Boy is completed, I’ve got a few other projects lined up that I am super excited to work on.

It feels amazing to be able to write again. Though I’m sure I’ll write on my struggles in future posts, I’ve learned what to cut out of my life in order to write. ❤


Some of you know that I hated poetry back in the day. But now it is super easy for me to harness a particular emotion and put it to paper. So, it is super exciting to tell you guys this news: Starting July 8 I will be publishing two straight weeks of poetry in two one-week installments. The first week will be poems belonging to a collection on the Seven Deadly Sins, whereas the second week will be poems on the Seven Christian/Heavenly Virtues.

Why, you may ask? Well, I’m not really sure, to be honest. I came up with the idea last week, and I think it will be really fun to post more often than I normally do. I hope you guys will enjoy those poems!


For those of you who are not familiar with the United States, our holiday on July 4 is Independence Day, when we celebrate the birth of our nation and the freedoms we have here. Thank you to all who have served and protected the USA and given me the opportunity to live here.

But another reason I love July 4 relates to my beautiful, strong mother, Momma J, who celebrates her birthday on July 4. While I will be a good child and not reveal her age, my mom is a beautiful, ageless woman who never fails to amaze me. She deserves much more than a shoutout on this blog, but I couldn’t post without giving her some recognition. ❤


Thank you for reading this post! We’ll get back to normal content on Friday, and then will be the two-week poetry marathon. Anyway, I hope you all have a blessed week, and I’m looking forward to your own posts.

You’re the best, and don’t forget it!

Until next time,


Collierville, TN // June 2019
