An Evening Out: Purity w/ Style Launch Party

danille-e1407897010589A few weeks ago I received a personal invite to serve as press for the launch of a young woman’s clothing line. Although I was honored, I wasn’t quite sure why I was chosen. I write a blog about various experiences in my life and in the lives of others but never had I covered an actual event as press. I hesitated for about 3 minutes before I responded with, “Absolutely!”

There’s nothing like a night in a swanky loft in the heart of DC spent with women of power, prestige, and a love of all things pure. I was able to get a few moments to chat with the lovely Danielle Stradford, founder and CEO of “Purity w/ Style.” Aside from her gracious smile and welcoming spirit, she’s a beautiful force behind a powerful movement to redefine the look of purity. Here’s a look into the life of the visionary and her new lifestyle brand: Continue reading

We Off That

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, God knows how to speak to us in ways that resonate with where we are in life and what we respond to. I’ve written many times about how God speaks to me in the wildest situations: a car accident, a leaky faucet, a random encounter with an elderly woman, and in this case a 1980s hairstyle!! Yes people, I said hair!

Faith Walk

So here it is… the truth and nothing but the truth…I have no idea what I’m doing!!! What have I gotten myself into?! I’m a behind the scenes type person. I’ve never liked being in the forefront… NEVER! I’m so out of my element and miles away from my comfort zone. This faith walk is no joke!! I’m less than 20 days away from the premiere of my first documentary film “To God be the Glamour” and I’m full of mixed emotions. My wallet is saying… “you can’t afford to go through with this” and  my nerves are saying “I’m not prepared for this,” but my heart is telling me “you have to do this.” For the first time in a long time I can honestly say I have no idea what I’m doing. What I have to believe is that God is behind this. I promise you that I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t wholeheartedly believe that it was the doorway into leading a more purposeful life. My sincere prayer is that God is bought to the forefront through my simple obedience to His call… no matter how much I want to run the other way! Continue reading

Priceless Beauty Comes with a Heart

Proverbs 31:29-31 ~ “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”

I would like to thank my fellow Bold & Fab sister Jocelyn (Indigo) for her words in her last post. It was her words that sparked the idea for what you are reading today. She wrote, “The prettiest face on earth is but an empty hole on your neck w/o the ability and willingness to have a HEART.”

In a world that is so obsessed with looks, material possessions, and status symbols, it is so refreshing to meet people who have all of the above but use it to uplift others and glorify God. Continue reading
