"I Remember A Time We Weren't Talking To Each Other" -Lara George Opens Up About Married Life

Singer Lara George opened up to Encomium magazine recently, speaking about the challenges faced in her ten years of marriage.

"There were many times like that. We have had our fair share. I remember a time we weren't talking to each other. It got really serious I had to call my pastor that I was fed up of my marriage. I can remember that my pastor was not around then but he spoke to my husband that Jesus loves the church unconditionally and things were sorted out.

Ebola Virus Outbreak: A First-Hand Liberian Tragedy

Princess Mayers sobs as she describes how Ebola has destroyed her life. The 17-year-old Liberian, whose story The Independent featured in May, had already suffered profoundly before the deadly virus struck the country.

Aged 14 and an orphan, she was forced to work as a prostitute to survive, and bore a child. A British charity called Street Child found her in the streets of West Point, one of the largest slums in the capital, Monrovia. It intervened and set Princess and her daughter on a path towards a brighter future. But because of the impact of Ebola, she is now struggling to go on. And her baby is dead.

The Ebola epidemic has claimed more than 2,600 lives across West Africa, with more than half of those deaths in Liberia. Last week, Barack Obama called the outbreak “a threat to global security”, and announced that he would send 3,000 US troops to affected regions.

Media personality Toke Makinwa recently spoke to City People Magazine about her personal life, surprise wedding, and attending events. 

Read the extract from her interview:
“To be honest with you, I thank God everyday for the kind of man that I married. I can’t take that for granted. Marriage is a big deal and I wish a lot of young people will take out time to really understand what marriage is all about. Even me, what do I know? I have only been in it for about 8 months but I thank God for the kind of person that he is. He is my support system. I think he kind of likes what I do. 
So he is one of my biggest fans. Even when I forget certain things, he is the one that is always pushing me, have you thought about this? What about doing this? Why don’t you try that? There is absolutely nothing that I can’t talk to him about. We are thinking of doing a lot of work together as well hopefully in 2015.″

Sunday Sermon: His Blessings Have No Limit

The last 2 years of my life have been a hurricane. I moved away from home because of family complications. I had to move to a totally different environment. It was with family, but I always felt like an outsider.

The hardest part of the struggle I was going through was that the year it all went south, I had just started to pray and fast. I participated in my very first Daniel Fast and shortly after the fasting was over, all hell literally broke loose.  All the same I did not give up on God and ran straight to Him for rescue and solution. I was in a job I hated, got several interviews but none of them worked out. I was bitter, angry, felt wronged.

My faith was not always at its strongest, but I fought many mental and spiritual battles with consistent prayer and supplication. After about a year of turmoil, my life began to make a change for the better. I read Christian books and blogs that encouraged me not to complain but do my best in the situation I was in. I fought my own negative mindset and did my best where I could, with the help of my Savior.

Wellness: Oprah Winfrey, Cameroon Diaz, Jennifer Ainston And 23 Other Famous Women On Childlessness

The public’s appetite for celebrity babies is pretty insatiable: the mere possibility of a baby bump on a “royal” can drive the internet into a full-fledged tizzy (e.g., Kate Middleton, BeyoncĂ©) and celebrities rake in millions for featuring their newborn spawn on magazine covers.
This interest in celebabies guarantees that once a famous woman reaches a certain age, the press will commence aggressively grilling her about whether she wants to have kids — a phenomenon that can sometimes result in a flood of factually incorrect tabloid stories, as Jennifer Aniston can attest. 

Despite the mounting pressures to have a baby already, a number of well-known, powerful women have said no, thanks, and spoken quite frankly about their decision not to parent. Here, a roundup of inspiring, funny, empowering takes from women including Gloria Steinem, Condoleezza Rice, and Stevie Nicks, on the upsides of taking the road less diapered.

Happy Friday!

Mid-Week Message: The Woman In The Mirror

My past is not perfect neither is it beautiful but I do believe God has called me to be as real and transparent as I can and not be afraid to share what I’ve always been afraid to share which is the truth. 

For many years I suffered in silence and even now it is still a struggle. Although I am not of this world, I still live in it and for the most part it is pretty cloudy.

God has spoken to me in numerous ways this week. I’ve been working on this blog for the past few days trying to figure out ways to cover up the TRUTH because of my lack of courage. I had a call scheduled with someone who “FOLLOWS” me on FACEBOOK and the Holy Spirit clearly spoke through her to get to me.

She told me her challenge of comparing herself to others and how she looked up to me. In no way would I be a good leader if I sat there and acted as if this isn’t my current ISSUE. She then began to tell me about a friend that would share current struggles and how she never once looked at the person differently. This was my turn to be honest and let her know my struggles, so I did.

Health: 3 Little Changes That Seriously Curb Cravings

If you're like most people, you get out of bed the same way every morning, and the particulars of putting on clothes and taking your first sip of coffee are nearly robotic. 

You probably never give much thought to actions like these. That's the point. They're habits -- behaviors wired so deeply into your unconscious that they can be accomplished on cruise control, allowing your brain to focus on more important matters. Of course, this can become problematic when your brain automatically begins to expect a brownie every day at 4 P.M. But take heart: Research shows that even the most hardwired routines can be disrupted. And the fix is often as easy as changing your environment.

1. Declutter to Eat Better

Researchers at the University of Minnesota suspected that an orderly lifestyle could result in healthier behaviors. To find out, they assigned 34 students to work in either a neat or untidy space. After ten minutes, the students were asked whether they wanted an apple or a piece of chocolate.

Career: Black Women Find A Growing Business Opportunity: Care For Their Hair

Not much seems unusual about Judian Brown and Kadeian Brown’s storefront in a tidy plaza off Church Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn, a neighborhood where every block seems to have its own African hair-braiding salon.

Posters of African-American women with long, sleek hair fill the window. Round jars of shea butter belly up to slender boxes of hair dye on the shelves. Wigs perch on mannequin heads.

What makes Black Girls Divine Beauty Supply and Salon’s visitors do a double-take is the skin color of the proprietors. “I go, ‘Look at all the faces on the boxes,’ ” said Judian Brown, recalling other shopkeepers’ and customers’ surprise when they realize she is not an employee, but the owner. “Who should be owning these stores?”
