• Fatherless Far Less

    Father’s Day is always a really interesting day for me. My father passed away when I was five. I have memories of him, but not many. My mother never remarried. My uncles played a significant role and demonstrated to me the character of what a father is. I cherish those memories and their witness. When […]

  • Not Used For Purposes Intended!

    I purchased a money order about six weeks ago from my credit union. Immediately following, I drove downtown to submit the money order. I was told it would take about five weeks for it to clear. I recall the day because it was the last day of my sick leave post surgery. I recall thinking […]

  • Are you goin’ make grade?

    Tis the season. Proms, graduations, end of year assessments, and the dreadful question that the church mothers would ask, “Is s/he goin’ make grade?” This was their way of extending care and correction muddled together to inquire as to whether a child had engaged in the necessary steps to “pass grade” and be promoted. Although […]

  • You Stand By Your Word!

    A few days ago, I traveled in some pretty terrific weather. It rained from the moment I pulled out of the garage at 7:25am until the time I pulled in at 4:45pm. I traveled just under two hours away from home, I maneuvered through three accidents, and trying to keep from hydroplaning. My hair got […]

  • The Deviled Half

    I’ve shared previously that my life altered somewhat about three years ago when I was diagnosed with a gluten allergy. It’s not uncommon, but the fact that it developed 40 some odd years after my birth is a bit strange. Nevertheless, I’ve adjusted to the change of eating. However, occasionally, when I dine at a […]

  • The I Am He Of Preexisting Conditions!

    Let’s pick up from where we left off last week when Jesus introduced himself to the Samaritan woman in the fourth chapter of John. At the well, she had a life changing experience. However, let’s be clear, she didn’t share cultural DNA with Jesus. She was the marrying type, five times over, and as Jesus […]

  • From Zero to Worship, Real Quick!

    Often when we hear that someone went from 0 to 100, there is a collective agreement that a situation escalated quickly – and most definitely not in a positive manner. I am comfortable, but perhaps not proud to admit that I’ve carried membership in said club. Anger has reared its ugly head, or disappointment in […]

  • Amanda Woods, Welcome Back!

    One of my favorite movies (and I have many) is the remake of the “The Holiday.” It chronicles the story of two women who’ve experienced heartbreak resulting from breakups and elect to switch houses during the holiday season as a method to “get away, regroup and find solace.” The movie brings me joy, but also […]

  • You Don’t Own Me!

    While channel surfing over the weekend, I came across an old movie entitled, “The First Wives Club.” I’ve watched it previously, and one of my favorite portions of the film is when the characters are united in singing, “You Don’t Own Me,” by Lesley Gore. As I reflected about the significance of Resurrection Day, I […]

  • All I See Is Rock!

    Like many of you, I seem to be in a state of busy. I can’t seem to complete one thing without something else presenting itself as undone. I have learned to say no, but perhaps I started practicing too late in that the residual is still in effect. I tell our daughter to say no, […]

  • Covered on Generation Drive

    It’s amazing how life comes full circle. About 20 years ago, I was in a marriage that was not healthy. I had no money. I stayed six months longer than I preferred because I needed to wait for the huge security deposit to be returned. As such, when I decided to leave, I was worried […]

  • Resist the devil or he will fee

    Did the enemy get the memo about what God has in store for you in 2017? He must have. Because seriously, he is amped! Through a myriad of conversations, coupled with a few incidents of my own, I’m realizing that he is particularly interested in March madness, without having anything to do with basketball. He’s […]

About Dr. Helms Pickett

Stephanie Helms Pickett’s life has been reflected by Ephesians 3:20, “Now to him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh within us.”

Her Name is SHE

Who is SHE? On the outside, she appears to have it all together. She is described as fierce, fabulous and fine. Her timeline on social media sites are filled with accolades by other ‘shes’ affirming and echoing her greatness.

Later Never Came…

Through personal narratives of lessons learned from academic disciplines and application through the word of God, the book is organized around theory that comprises each of these schools of thought thus presenting an amazing comparison which is scholarly, scriptural and reflective.
