Sometimes, we wish we could literally just GET LOST, and if someone else says all you need to do is find balance, I am literally going to Lose IT! Is the concept of balance REAL? Or is it more about finding peace? Balance to Ty is about Protecting her Peace but forging full speed ahead to accomplish all her goals, and for Quincy it's about making short term sacrifices for mental stability.

Have you ever walked in a room and felt like you didn't belong; not because of who you were, but because of your RACE or Color? Did you ever feel like you couldn't win for loosing in both your personal or professional life? If you have ever felt like being BLACK is exhausting then this is the episode you don't want to miss. In episode 9 - The Great Divide we spoke with Karen Maarman from S. Africa who shared a rich history of the S. African culture, some family upbringing & background, as well as the struggles that still exist today. This interview touched us in many ways, and there were several points shared that we thought were worthy of additional discussion. Quincy and I dive deeper into the discussion in Episode 10 - Color Lines, and share the personal and professional struggles that we have both experienced. We also talk about the unconscious biases we all have that are a product of our upbringing; which can be good, bad or indifferent. Enjoy the Ride!

Have you ever wanted to ask God WHY!? Was there ever a moment of darkness that left you feeling all alone? I know the y’all every SUNDAY I can do no wrong Christians are like nah Child how can you have these doubts if you claim to be a child of God, because fear and faith can’t live together. Well I have heard all the scripture and seen all the quotes; but when there are more things going wrong than right; when there are more losses than wins; when you keep getting hit while you’re down YOU TO WILL HAVE THIS MOMENT OF DESPAIR too. And to add insult to injury while you’re doing what you feel are all the right things and you scroll down your IG feed and you see others receiving blessings upon blessings and you know they not doing right ... Go ahead and act like you’ve never had a moment of envy! Yes, I know we shouldn’t examine our lives by others success. I’m generally happy for others, but I’m also human and from time to time that envy demon sneaks it’s ugly head in and takes over. It’s not so much their success as it is my assessment of personal failure. The message in this episode is not to be discouraged, because SCATTERED SEEDS STILL GROW. I heard this message this weeks and before even hearing the sermon those 4 words struck me and I already knew what the message was about. I started thinking of all the “seeds” or conversations I had, doors I’d knocked on, doors that were closed, and how although disappointed we found away to keep pushing. Then low and behold one of those doors we’d assumed was closed actually opened months sometimes almost a year later. There are seeds that you have planted and forgotten about because you assumed that opportunity was not yours because the door has not opened according to your schedule. What you’re going through or have been through may look bleak, but what awaits you on the other side is worth living and fighting for. Join Quincy and I as we share how we’ve climbed out of darkness.
