  • Social media is a crazy place because most of the time you don’t even know the people you follow, and only see small snippets of their life that they want to show you! Most of y’all know I make music, and maybe you know my fam, but there’s so many other things I’m passionate about and Involved with that I don’t share. I think I’m going to start sharing a few of those things with y’all this year.

One of those things is that in 2018 I was elected by the people of my district as a Law Enforcement Officer. I’m so grateful to my trainers, and most importantly to the people who trusted me with their vote. I’ll always do my best to protect and serve my constituency 🙏🏽 No, this doesn’t affect my music. I’m still singing and working on new music for ya’ll coming very soon ;-) but I’m very thankful for the opportunity to serve a role in giving back to my State as much as I’m able!

Ever since I was a little kid, my dad has always told me, “If you get the opportunity to learn a skill or give back, even if it’s not something you think you’ll do for the rest of your life, take that opportunity to learn if you’re able! You can never learn too much, and you never know when those skills might be useful.” That’s kind of become my life policy. Sometimes it gets crazy, with so many irons in the fire, but you only live once, so why not do as much as you can 😄 Right?

Anyways, do what ya love, do your best, and you’ll always be happier for it! Have a great week 😎

  • Every valley you walk through brings new perspective. So no matter how dark and foreboding it may be, it isn’t a valley for defeat, but a lesson to learn. Which means it’s a valley meant for victory!

There’s an old quote that says “If you’re going through that valley of the shadow of death, just keep going.”
.
You won’t find a more comforting or inspiring thought to get you through your valley than King David’s words in Psalms 23:1-6.
.
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
.
You may wonder why I’m talking about the valleys? Well, it’s because I’ve just been through one, but I’m on the other side, and it’s a good ways to the top, so I’m gonna keep climbing.

Time is a vapor, and life is a gift. I’m so thankful for the blessing I’ve been given.

Don’t ever forget that hope isn’t born on the mountain tops but the lowest valleys while you’re looking up toward the heights and peaks you’re about to climb.
