    Finish What You Started

    Do you recall your favorite pair of shoes growing up? While many rocked Nike Air Force Ones, I was a Converse kid, and my favorite pair were my yellow and blue All-Star Converse. I was twelve years old when I first laid my hands on the light yellow and blue high-tops. They were just my size, unique, and just like me. Whenever I walked down the hallway with my fresh kicks, I just knew I was the best thing since sliced bread. When friends complimented me on my shoes, all thirty-two of my teeth were on display( and if you know me, I’m not one to smile with my teeth…

    Revitalizing My Journey to Refresh

    Businesses, marketing, services, oh my! If someone were to tell me I’d be doing all of these things and more, five years ago I would have looked at them and said, “You’ve lost your ever-loving mind.” I then would have eased in the phrase we all love, ” The devil is a lie” and mosied on my merry way. You see, for those unaware, I’ve been blogging since 2016. My first blog was known as“Christians in College,” which led to “REFRESH Magazine” and now I’m here on “My Journey to REFRESH”.

    Revelation: It’s Time to Revitalize Your Gift Sis

    Welcome to April 2021 Ladies! While the world is slowly opening back up again I can’t help but think about the pandemic that took us ALL by surprise just one year ago.
