Inspiring Girls to Dream BIG: Queen Girls Stories of Real Women Turned into Fairy Tales

If you’re like me and have a deep passion for empowering our kids and youth then you’ll love this project created by a group of inspiring ladies. Queen Girls is a series of children’s books that turn stories of real women into fairy tales to encourage them to live out their dreams.

When I first saw this amazing project I was immediately drawn in like YES! This is what our girls need to see, that their dreams are possible and that they shouldn’t be afraid to dream BIG. The first book in the Queen Girls series shares the story of the first African American woman pilot Bessie Coleman and the illustrations are so vibrant, enchanting and engaging. You can help bring this project to life by donating to the IndieGogo campaign and pre-ordering your copy to help bring these books to children in need of inspiration and connect with them on social media and their website: www.queengirlspublications.com

We’re All In This Together: Love Always Wins

lovealwayswins

One love, one heart…We are one in Love💖✊👑 – no matter what the media or society says we were all created by God in His image and He has the last say. With all that’s going on in the world today sometimes we might ask…ummm where’s the love? It’s okay to cry, to address our hurt and feelings, to have discussions and even protests and take action against injustice – but always remember that this fight is multifaceted. When we see that the biggest fight is Light vs. darkness, Good vs. evil and take action on every front then #lovewins.

All throughout history darkness and fear tries to divide us by race, gender and differences but we are stronger together for our battle is not against people, flesh and blood but it’s in the spiritual realm. “There is no us vs them. There is only ALL OF US. We’re all in.” – Glennon Doyle Melton

When we argue, make generalizations, sink into bitterness and offense and bicker we give the real enemy the power of distracting us from our real battle, the one that’s unseen. We do need to have discussions and take action in the physical realm (I dare you to pray and ask God what part He has for you to play in all this) and fight injustice but we have to do it the wise way not the angry and reactive way – sometimes in order to win a war you have to rise above the battlefield with divine wisdom, strategy and spiritual weapons like unity and worship – Love always wins! 🔥

Maybe Bob Marley said it best in his song:
One love, (What about the one heart)
One heart, (What about love)
Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One love)
So shall it be in the end (One heart)
Alright, “Let’s give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right.”
