I Am LaMonique.

I Am LaMonique.

I did something today, and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and for that I apologize. I’ve had a lot to say.

Working (and Experimenting?) in Your Faith

Working (and Experimenting?) in Your Faith

Yesterday, I read a post from Life & Business Coach Kachelle Kelly that I literally chanted in order to get through my day. If you don’t follow her on Facebook or Twitter, please take the time to do so. She is the real deal, and a consistent blessing in her encouragement. God is no respecter … Continue reading
