When I was single, I had a season of isolation where I worked on myself. As a married man, I am bearing the fruit of the time I spent addressing my personal issues. I addressed my issue of low self-esteem, sought wisdom and understanding of my purpose in life, recognized my value and what I had to offer someone else, worked on being able to recognize when I was being “crazy”…lbvs, and really allowed God to show me true myself. During that season, I wanted to grow and mature. Because marriage was always the end goal for me, I dedicated time to healing from past hurtsRead More →

I’ve been meaning to share this post since November 22, 2015 (our first year anniversary), but with a new baby, work, ministry, more work and just my desire to fully share these thoughts regarding the first year of marriage, I just finished the blog.  I understand that everyone’s first year of marriage is different, but I thank God that ours was AMAZING, and I give all the honor and glory to Him because it could have been different, BUT GOD! 1.

My biological father, Dennis Jerome Taylor, was killed when I was two years old.  As a result of his death, I struggled my entire childhood and most of my adult life with trying to fill a void that only a fatherless child can explain. It wasn’t until I became a mature, born again Christian, that I understood the void that I was trying to fill. You see…there is something about a father’s love that gives us security, and without it, you can feel lost or like you are walking in this world trying to figure everything out for yourself.  My mother did the best thatRead More →

My wife and I decided that we wanted to do a blog about healthy relationships, marriage, family and the importance of living a God-centered life. Now, although we do not proclaim to be “experts” in this area, God has specifically blessed us with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding about relationships that we believe will be a blessing to someone else.  And I, being the husband and head of our household, decided to write the first introductory blog. (I think that’s okay, right babe? #HappyWifeHappyLife) As of today, my wife and I have been married for 9 months and 5 days, and I can honestly say everyday gets sweeter thanRead More →
