On Saturday the 26th, I was given the opportunity to speak to teenagers in my church. They had a 2 day programme and though I didn’t go the first day which was Friday (was at work), the one I experienced on Saturday was wonderful and I learned a lot. My favourite part of it all was questions the teenagers asked. You could tell that they needed to understand several things from sex, relationships,

​Hey guys, it’s a new month, Happy New Month! I’m a bit excited about this month, why? Because July is gone and I can’t wait to see what August holds, whether good or ugly, but c’mon I’d love mostly the good lol and I’m positive. Well July has been somewhat good, had its ups and downs, but in all I’d say I learned a lot and most importantly, I grew.

So, I’d like to share some of the things I’ve learned.

On Sunday, I spoke rudely to someone and the funny thing is truthfully I didn’t know I was rude until my sister later told me I sounded rude. I felt bad though because that wasn’t my intention and I knew I sounded that way because I wasn’t in a good mood plus I had a lot on my mind. I immediately apologized.
