    Positivity : The power of your words

    Something I have learned throughout my life is that my tongue has a lot of power. James says the tongue is a spark that can set an entire forest on fire. And yet most times I forget. In the name of self depreciating jokes or being ‘real’, I get lost in spewing negative words. And I know am not the only one; we find ourselves saying things like ‘it’s ok I’m just average’ and ‘I don’t care, I’m a savage.’ And all this is in the name of being ok with who you are and being real. We forget that what we speak will always come to life, I mean…

    10 of the best action/thriller Christian book series(PART 1)

    Action… the thrill of the chase, the depth of the mystery, your blood pumping, your head pumping, your heart racing and then “Hey!” someone yells at you and you fight the urge to punch them in surprise, horror or anger.
