  • Long Walks

    The streets are not so empty anymore, and even though you cannot see the smiles, the eyes tell it all. There is something about taking a long walk that calms the mind.

  • Our Common Hallelujah

    For two years I was privileged to study on the island of Grenada. One of the most incredible experience I had on the island, was my time spent with the Christian Student’s Association - Church on Campus. Each semester they would have a multicultural praise night and it felt like a glimpse of what heaven would be like.

  • The Ashea West Story

    With just a little faith and a whole lot of determination, I started out on a journey in 2011 that stretched me spiritually in ways I didn’t know possible. I was born in Jamaica and I got baptized in the Seventh Day Baptist church when I was 13 years old.

  • When to give up

    Today I am here to tell you when it is okay to give up as a Christian.
