Praying things look up for others today, for me for the next several weeks. Praying people look up…”I lift my eyes unto the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from The Lord, the maker of heaven and earth…” #oklahomea #prettyinpink #teamamk
#Blessings on everyone going out to Moore to help. I can’t, not just because I don’t have time but because emotionally I am barely keeping it together as is. I have to keep it cool for these kids. #Teacher Seeing the devastation on social media is hard enough. I would fall apart if I saw it in person.

Every part of me and my body is politicized
Loving myself and valuing my humanity, in a society that sees me as nothing more than a commodity, is an act of political resistance
And loving those like me is an act of political solidarity.
this is the best way I have heard this expressed.
Today is a rough day for so many reasons. One year ago today, sweet Ann Michele King went to be with Jesus (top right). We miss her constantly but despite her battle with cancer, she said “The only C-word in my life is Christ.” And through her pain and all of our pain and struggle she ALWAYS said “My God is bigger!” So today, as people sift through the rubble and comfort each other through losses, I am thankful for a God who is bigger than my imagination. The top left corner is a picture of my brother in Christ, Devin Bruner. He has been there for me through some of the roughest times in my life. He always challenges me and makes sure I am on track. Above all he is always just THERE to make me laugh or tell me to turn my phone off in church. 😏 Like a bossy brother. For a girl who has never had siblings, and who has complicated relationships with men sometimes, it has been really good for my heart to have Devin around. But today he leaves for basic training for nine months. I don’t even want to think about how much I’m going to miss him or how different he might be when he gets back. But even in this, “my God is bigger,” right? So as I see pictures and statuses of people’s pain all around, and as I struggle through my own, I can do nothing but praise Yahweh, the living God, who deserves our utmost praise and honor just because of who He is. And also because He repays what the locusts eat and gives us beauty for our ashes and binds up the broken-hearted. “My praise will go on and on and on…” @teamamk #amktaughtme #oklaHOMEa

it’s not that i think everyone should go natural
nope, not at all
i do wish that every black woman felt like they could go natural, if they wanted to
it hurts my heart that sometimes there is a feeling of hatred and disgust when women see their own natural hair
because they don’t…
