…in spite of what you do to me. Chiiiiillllle, this has truly been an uphill battle. For those of you who don’t know, part of my testimony includes being a teenager who literally refused to say “I love you” to anybody. I’m a pretty loyal person. Love is my steez if I’m honest. I have always been one who lives and loves passionately. My love for those who have my heart is deep and intricate. When I was younger, I often spent my time suppressing my ability to love people because I was called “sensitive.” When I ran into God…


Two weeks ago, I was checking on one of my big kids and she said something that sat with me. In mentorship, it’s crazy to see how many of my own life lessons aren’t just for me but for my kids. This amazing woman is beautiful, brilliant and multi-talented; and I’m not just saying that because she’s one of mine lol. I listened to her talk about a feeling that I know well — tiredness. Tired is defined as “being in need of sleep or rest; weary; no longer fresh or in good condition; or to be bored with.” The…


Confessions of a Tilted Crown was created to provide a voice to numerous experiences through the lens of faith. In finding my voice, I’ve learned that helping others do the same is just as important. My cousin Happily Chasity is a woman who I’ve grown with for the last decade or so. As the owner of the Yellow Hammock Juice Bar, 2020 has been a breakout year for Chasity when it comes to utilizing her many gifts and talents. As a worshipper, prayer partner, and everyday comedian, my relationship with this amazing woman has spilled over into numerous capacities in…


I always laugh when I look back at old stuff that I wrote from a place of passion. Why? Because sometimes I can’t remember what influenced me to write it. Writing has always been a timestamp for me in a sense. I’m able to connect and keep the principle, even if I can’t remember what triggered it sometimes. This #ThrowbackThursday post is from the spring of 2014. Around this time I had just completed my first full year of graduate school and this piece was written under a series I did called Confessions of a Graduate Grizzly. Graduate school and…


Because let’s be honest, as progressive as Christianity has become, issues of mental health have still proven to be taboo. The thought of recognizing that one is fighting seasonal depression can be a tight fit for any believer; especially when you’ve built your “brand” around your faith and belief system. Yet here we are, addressing the elephant in the room. Anybody who knows me knows that the fall is my season! As short as it is, I LOVE everything about the fall. From the color of the leaves to the fashion to the cider mill which is truly a must…


My nieces taught me a dynamic life lesson. Yesterday the twins (they’ll be 6 years old in a week) were in the backyard with their two year old sister during “recess” since they are currently virtual learners. One of the twins came in the house to see when playtime was scheduled to end; followed by the other twin. Before the door fully closed, their two year old sister started freaking out. Why? Because in a split second, she thought she had been forgotten about. My vibrant, headstrong “Middle Skittle” as I like to call her, began to yell, scream and…


A few weeks ago, I was on the phone with my sis and God started speaking to me about what He was trying to get out of me at this season (I get so tired of that word because we use it so much in Christianity but that’s my current placeholder until I come up with something else) and He told me one simple word: faithfulness. It was so strange to me; not bad strange but different strange. …


And I’m back with another #ThrowbackThursday piece! I read all of this one this morning and I can’t even front — it confirms everything about who I am today! When I turned 30 last November my Sensei asked me how it felt (because she’s petty and had been waiting to welcome me to the “Old Lady Gang” as she likes to call it) and I responded “It feels like freedom! It feels like I’m exactly who I’m suppose to be and I love who I am!” She told me that she was happy because though I had been saying it…


Last week was rough. I refused to watch the #GeorgeFloyd video but after seeing the CNN reporter get arrested and watching the video of a White man with a hammer going through Minneapolis, smashing windows of an AutoZone and blame being placed on the Black faces that were protesting I felt this deep sense of grief. The same grief I’ve felt for #BreonnaTaylor, #BothamJean, #AtatianaJefferson, #AhmaudArbery, #SandraBland, #EricGardner #PhilandoCastile and so many other lives that have been snatched away at the hands of someone who didn’t care. Last week I was out of tears and running out of rooms for…


So I decided that I would go into some of my old material and post a #ThrowbackThursday piece every once in a while. I’ve learned a lot since starting my first blog almost 10 years ago so it’s been crazy to go back and read some of the material. The first post is extremely personal and still teaches me something new whenever I read it. I think posting it now is important because even though most of us are were extremely encouraged at the beginning of the year, many of us have fell weary and are exhausted from battles. I…
