    Who made this mess?

    in Lifestyle

    When you walk into messy room do you wonder who could have possibly created this mess or do you look for the beauty of a child-at-play?  

    If you look for the smallest details you might see that the child took everything out to find the right material to create something very special.

    Did you look for ways to make things when you were little?  Did you find happiness playing or were you happier pretending to be a grown up?  What kind of a mess did you get into when you grew up?

    Let's talk about the messy world we live in today, shall we?

    "Don't Talk About It Be About It"

    This week Erica discusses the big difference between being a Christian versus just calling yourself one. So many people claim to be followers of the Lord when in actuality they are quite the opposite.

    It is imperative as Christians that our actions speak louder than words. We must demonstrate the love and life of Christ not just dicatate it.

    Erica reads from her blog, My Message and gives reference to key scriptures that help us live more like Christ.

    Turning Your Mess into a Message with Writer and Poet LaCretia Lewis

    in Radio

    In this episode of GaptoothDiva Radio, we discuss the journey of turning your mess into a message. S many of us have endured struggles and challenges in life, but very few of us use those obstacles as an opportunity to uplift and inspire others.

    We are on the air with our special guest, LaCretia Lewis, also known as "Forepleasure". A 36-year old Richmond, VA native and a proud mother to three daughters. Having become a single parent at the age of 16, LaCretia holds a special place in her heart for young women that have endured a similar journey.

    LaCretia’s passion is to empower young people, who much like her, have been and are facing daunting challenges. Today's youth grapple with abuse, depression, peer pressure, pregnancy, and sexual issues ranging from harassment to identity, at a much earlier age. Through her organization, BRANDED, LaCretia aspires to provide the "village" and offer young people a safe space, and wise counsel, in addition to tangible tools for success, as they navigate life's rocky terrain.

    Listen in as we come back with more of the off the cuff entertainment but with real and honest conversation surrounding topics related to you. Using Fashion, Music, Culture, Entertainment, and Lifestyle.
