Worst Places I've Ever Visited — From The Man Who's Been Everywhere, Globe Trotter Names Lagos Nigeria As The worst Of The Worst


Many of us say, "That was the worst place in the world!" But really: How many of us truly have the authority to say that? Lee Abbamonte does.

He's the youngest American to visit all 193 member nations of the United Nations, and he's well on his way to visiting all 324 on The Travelers’ Century Club list, which includes territories and unique destinations in addition to nations. (Lee expects to have 321 of the 324 countries checked off by the end of the year).

With all those countries, they can't all be winners. And Abbamonte, as part of his traveling mission, has to see the losers too. He takes that part of his quest seriously. "I spent time in these places; it's not like I went to the airport and split," he says of the bottom-tier countries. "I tried to give each place a couple of days."

Relationships: I Just Got Engaged And Immediately Doubted My Decision. Here’s Why I Still Said “Yes”…


Instagram media moisom - 4 months until "I do", and a wedding website coming soon! ❤️
Our whole lives we’re sold “happily ever after”, time and time again.

In the movies. On TV. On Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube.

I’ve heard talk about Prince Charming, “The One”, my “soul mate”. Even in church, I’ve been told that God is designing the PERFECT man for me. That there is ONE out there who will complete me.
And while I’ve always rolled my eyes at these concepts, I failed to realize how much they were etching their way into my thoughts and heart.

I’ve been in a relationship with Jeremiah for 15 months. And I’ve known I wanted to spend my life with him engagement 2 for 6. We’ve navigated the highs and lows of dating. We’ve stumbled and struggled…a lot. We’ve had great victories and highs. We’ve cried some, laughed often, bickered more, and smiled the most. We’ve supported one another in the struggles of building our careers.

Relationships: The 12 Ways Of A Godly Wife


Black Culture, blackgirlsrpretty2: want
I’m in pursuit of these 12 things and I will be unto death do us part.   

And the reason why is because I want to honor my Lord with my marriage.  These 12 ways are by no means easy, but they are God-honoring, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, right?


1.  To love him.  I study him to find out what makes him tick.  I seek out ways and ask him questions to find out what makes him feel loved by me the most, and then I pursue those ways.   (Titus 2:4)

2.  To respect him.  He just so happens to flourish as a man when I respect him.  And I happen to think a flourishing husband is much better to live with than a husband who is wilting.  (Eph. 5:33)

3.  To be his lover.  It’s why I married him and vice versa.  (1 Cor. 7:2-5)

Happy Wednesday!

Sunday Sermon: When Purpose Drives Your Life


Once we know our God given purpose, it begins to take control of our lives. Some may think they understand it or that they are living it out, yet they lack the insight and connection with God to truly understand.

Passion and purpose are often used interchangeably, yet they are two different things. Many may have passion for something and it’s not their God given purpose.

Passion by itself may drive you in circles doing any and everything to make that passion turn into success. While God may allow you to have some success because of your hard work, you still wonder what’s missing. Why am I working so hard yet getting so little return?

God’s purpose for our lives is the reason why we were put here on this earth; knowing your purpose can cause you to have passion to fulfill God’s will for your life. It is not the passion that leads you to frantically do any and everything to make things happen.
