• I do my praise in action!

    On last evening in homes across the country in addition to the buzz celebrating Serena Williams’ 18th grand slam title, was the excitement of the 60s babies for a special Schoolhouse Rock retrospect and sing-a-long.  For an hour, I had the pleasure of reflecting upon my childhood Saturday morning ritual of pancakes and pajamas while […]

  • That Name

    About a week ago during a doctor’s appointment, I sat in a waiting room reading a monitor.  Amongst pictures of the Duke community, entered the following phrase, “It’s not just a name, it’s a promise.”  Although the words referred to the Duke Hospital System, I couldn’t help but project those words to Jesus.  For every […]

  • Piracy, Plagiarism and Pillage

    Are you a thief? Do you regularly or on occasion take what doesn’t belong to you? These days its pretty dangerous to do so.  We are living (and some may say this was always constant) in a time whereby stealing can cost you your life! No laughing matter.   The majority of the human race […]

  • What is your level of pain?

    I am two weeks out from having surgery.  Initially going in, I was really uncomfortable in accepting the level of pain that I would potentially experience.  Further, every person I knew that had the procedure focused on how well I would feel about four weeks post surgery.  I recognized that as some sort of set […]

  • Being the Doo Wop Girl…

    Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to see the documentary, “20 Steps From Stardom” by Morgan Neville.  It chronicled the spirit and lived experience of the “background singer.”  The tagline for the film states, “Meet the unsung heroes behind the greatest music of our time.”  The film was exceptional.  It was an amazing collage […]

  • No Right, No Left, Just Straight

    I was blessed to be a visitor in the Queen City last week for my sorority’s international conference.  The city was gorgeously painted in our signature pink and green colors.  Our events were primarily held in what is referred to as the Uptown area, whereby many of the streets run in one direction. This was […]

  • Confronting Hard Questions

    While matriculating in school, I mastered the art of avoiding the hard questions.  I would sit in a place that would strategically keep me from being noticed.  For example, sitting next to the person who always had an answer resulted in the teacher or professor being willing to ignore the person, and thereby me.  Or refusing […]

  • Feeling Blue…

    A couple of weeks ago, I visited a nail shop that I frequent regularly.  I chose a color that appeared in the purple/lilac family.  Before the attendant opened the bottle for application, she said, “Are you sure that you want this? Its mood changing polish.” I responded, “Oh, like a mood ring?” She looked strange. […]

  • Resisting Your Good?

    I decided to go running with a group the other day.  I began running about seven months ago, and although I did a 5k in April, as far as my non race days,  I’d been running solo. Much to my surprise, I enjoyed being with others.  It’s easy for me (I believe) to get along with others, […]

  • It’s The Holiday! Who’s Your +1?

    I need to open with a disclaimer.  It’s the day before America honors its freedom, and I suppose as such, I’m in liberation mode.  Perhaps more significantly in my life is my freedom through Christ’s death, burial and resurrection at Calvary.  I’m feeling quite liberated this morning and earnestly hope and pray the same for […]

  • Balloon or Bust?

    When I initially moved to the state of North Carolina, I lived on the campus of North Carolina State University (Go Pack!).  I began graduate school and I worked as a Residence Director.  The campus was near Cameron Village, and the grocery store we frequented was Harris Teeter.  My daughter loved going to the store […]

  • The Unfolding of His Sovereignty

    If there is anything on the list of demonstrated behaviors God deemed to show me in 2014, it was that he is sovereign.  He is in full control.  There is no doubt in my mind.  No matter what I attempt, manipulate, avoid or ignore, I fall short.  Everything I touch, everything I say and everything […]

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.
