My Ministry

Carolyn Murray

Yesterday was baby shower day for my daughter! It was a great time with friends and family. I'm so thankful for my Tucson family that always manages to join our family gatherings. Thank you!

 I sustain myself with the love of family.

It will be the tenth grandchild for my husband and I -which is leading me to believe the pastor that pulled me out of a crowd 26 years ago to tell me that I was going to have a ministry of children was correct. Looking back at my life I now tend to think that perhaps his prophecy was right on track since I seem to always have a ministry of children closely connected to me on my journey. I would have never guessed this would be my life, but I'm thankful for all the young souls that I've touched. For me that's what life is all about - touching lives and leaving an imprint on their hearts.

Peace, Love & Hugs!

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…


Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…
