Mom's and Bonus Mom's Letter to Their 2020 Senior

Dear Jadyn, 

Today and everyday I am so proud of the young man that you are becoming. You are intelligent funny, and you bring so much joy to my world.  You have had obstacles put in your way since day one and you have pushed through and exceeded all goals that were put in front of you. I know things are not as you hoped for or planned for your senior year, but I want you to know that you are "still blessed" When things get back close to normal you are going to have a graduation and we will celebrate all of your accomplishments. I want you to always try your very best and give everything your all. Remember Philippians  4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me". Always keep God first in your life and you will always go in the right direction. I love you with all my heart and I am so proud of you.

Love always,
Mommy Chenique


I remember the first time I met you, and to this very day your beautiful smile still lights up my heart. I have seen you grow up into a young man right before my eyes.  You have blessed me in so many ways just by being yourself. I am so proud of all you have accomplished in life so far. You are more than a conqueror.  I know your senior looks a little different that what you expected. In despite of that, I want you to always remember to trust God.  We can't always understand God's way or His plans.  We don't always like the way God does things. However, take heart because God is good, and He eventually works all things out for the good of those who love Him.  There is a purpose for all things that God allows. God does some of His greatest work during our most trying and difficult times.  Bad times don't always last.  There is a season for everything. When things don't look like you want them to, thank God anyway, and ask Him to show you His plans, and provide you wisdom and guidance during the situation. Ask God to show you the opportunity. With that being said, I look forward to seeing the great things God has planned  for your life, and what He is going to do within you and through you. You are amazing and created to do great things.  Never forget that Christ Jesus is your soul source of strength, you are loved, worthy, and valuable, created on purpose, and here for a purpose. Think positive thoughts no matter what you see, speak life giving words even when that's not what you feel, always pray, and read your Bible every single day

I Love You Always,
Love Shena

Mr. Dy'Juan Evans a senior graduate c/o 2020 from Dadeville High School I always dreamed, prayed,  and wondered if I would see the day that you walk across the stage receiving your high school diploma. That time came and went due to Covid-19. Your family loves you and wants you to keep your head high and still achieve every goal you have set for yourself. We are behind you all the way! congratulations and we love you "Class of 2020"!

Interview With Personal Trainer Elizabeth of Best Of Liz

Me:    Please share with my readers a little about yourself.   Elizabeth: Hi, My name is Elizabeth (but only my dad still calls me by my full name), but most people know me as Liz. I'm a level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and lover of movement in all forms. Our bodies are great tools, and I love exploring what my body can do.    Me: Tell me what inspired you to start your fitness training journey?   Elizabeth: I was super active from a very young age. As soon as I could walk, I was running, and I was really fast!!! Growing up, I used to race all the boys in my neighborhood and win, but my love of movement meant I didn't want to just run, but I wanted to jump, bound, throw, try and succeed in everything. So instead of competing in just one discipline, I trained as a Hephthalite in my teenage years. At 18, I gave it up to focus on my studies, and as I began working to support myself, I ended up tending bars in London's biggest nightclubs, to eventually managing them. The more

Praying For Answers for My Daughter

  Hey,  my name is Shekita Barnes and my daughter's name is Kalaysia Barnes on November 24,2015, my daughter woke up limping, so I asked her why she was walking like that. She said she didn't know so later on that day she was crying, and my cousin and I asked her what she was crying for and again she said she didn't know. My cousin went to the store and got her and her twin brother Cordez some cupcakes, but she could not hold anything in her hands. My cousin suggested something happened to her in her sleep that night, so I took her to a hospital in Montgomery. The doctors ran tests on her and said she had a light stroke, so they sent her to Birmingham to a children’s hospital. They ran tests on her and came and told us that she could not talk but she could walk just a little. She was admitted to the hospital on December 8th. She went into a coma and the doctors had given up on her.    I left the hospital to go home and check on my other kids. She woke up on January 6,2016

Skin Color Doesn't Dictate Love

Written By: Felecia Causey Models:Casey, Tommy, Annelise, Aiyanna, and Alaina Rockwell    In a world where there should not be a boundary when it comes to love. Unfortunately in reality, we live in a place where people have a cap or visual of what and how a person should be or look like. There is also a “norm” of what a family should like.  What so many fail to do is mind the business that pays them. There are so many families that may look different, but their love for each other is as strong as any other family is. When you view from the innocent eyes of a child they don’t see color or see different, they are not aware that people despite their family, all they see in their sweet eyes, is unconditional love. There is no acceptance in their home and around most family members, or friends, but it is a factor in what love should look like in a cruel world where the color of your skin plays a factor in what love should look like. In such a time, where skin color is a very sensitive su
