  • A Summer To Remember

  • Leaves die, but roots thrive

    Growing up in the countryside in Jamaica has taught me the value of agriculture. That coupled with my dad and grandmother’s undying love for all things farmer-Brown- I was bound to have a green-thumb, or so I thought.

  • Learn to swim, or drown

    When my youngest brother got enlisted in the army, I did not sleep the night before he went in. I cried, my heart raced, and my mind could not settle.

  • Stumble forward

    As Christians, many of us are all too familiar with the idea of messing up or stumbling. When someone says being a Christian is hard, it is often the thought of living a life that is idealistic and free from error that scares people away. This is because we know that inherently, we are from the Adamic race, born to fail, only human.

  • Bounded by grace

    As I knelt in front of the couch, I re-surrendered my marriage to God. Somewhere along the journey I managed to snatch it from his grasp, and it was way too much for me to hold. I could feel the burden of relational conflicts, misunderstandings, lack of active listening and selfishness ease from my shoulders. In that moment, I experienced God’s peace.

  • God’s sense of humor

    When I was younger, my understanding of God was blurred. I never quite understood people’s desire to follow Him. We often had little street sermons (crusades), on the road and every man or woman ministering was a type of John, the Baptist- preaching the preparation of the way for THE ONE to come.

  • Healing Itch

    A few months ago, I did a surgery which left my stomach scarred in four different places. At first, I had to get used to the idea that many things that I was accustomed to would be difficult, at least for a while.

  • Friends like these

    Life is filled with rocky grounds, isolating moments and dark days. On one of my darkest days in October 2018, the Lord reminded me that even dark skies reflected His majesty.

  • You Don't Have to Be Enough

    I used to feel like I would never measure up. I knew I loved to sing, but I could not sing as well as that other girl.

  • Honoring Your Season

    In Genesis chapter 8, verse 22, the Bible tells us that, “As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest. There will always be cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night."
