• Lit for Christ

    I put up a tree this year. For the last two years, I’ve elected not to do so. Typically, if it’s not up by December 15th, it’s a wrap. This year, the Holy Spirit suggested that I get the tree out of storage (yep, I’m an artificial girl) before the snow storm. I was so […]

  • Military, Are You?

    Almost two weeks ago, I went for my annual mammogram (results were great, Praise God!). It was a day that was cold and there was sleet falling. I didn’t want to leave my house, but getting this test is too important to remain in the bed. At any rate, I threw some clothes on and […]

  • Christmas Give!

    Growing up I recall hearing a story about one of my relatives who excitedly exclaimed to others on this day with her hand extended, “Christmas Give!” Strangely enough, she had nothing in her hand to extend, but was instead proclaiming her desire to receive from others in the spirit of “giving.” Much can be said […]

  • But for the “If”

    I promise the enemy is out here doing his best to keep the saints from being great as 2017 comes to a close. As if the year wasn’t filled enough with tribulation, here he comes squeezing the last bit of drama he can before confetti is thrown in the air at a Watch Night Service. […]

  • Year In Review

    Just about anywhere you look, you’ll find the usual “year in review.”  On television, network news in particular captures images of the incidents that made headlines; entertainment programs reflect upon the tangled lives of those in Hollywood, as well as trends that perhaps caught and sometimes dominated our attention; radio programs create mashups of the […]

  • 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 […]

  • Flag Day, Forty-Fives and Father’s Day

    Flag Day is finally here! Growing up, I couldn’t wait for this day to arrive.  I had difficulty sleeping the night before due to excitement.  Whether I was having a party or not, or anticipating receiving a special gift, Flag Day was always special because it was my birthday! It was a day by which […]

  • Don’t Let A Little Bit Of Swine Stop You!

    Happy December 31st! About 20 years ago, the representation of this day and its accouterments completely altered.  For in 1993, I became a mother and my resources and my attention became distinctly different.  Prior to that time, there was much planning prior to New Year’s Eve.  I grew up in Chicago whereby my friends and […]

  • What’s Left Over

    If the Lord blesses us, this time next week we will be going about our business in the year 2014.  For me, it will be my return to work following vacation.  It will further be my first day on my newly appointed interim position as the Director of the Women’s Center at Duke University for […]

  • My gift to self

    Twas two days before Christmas and all through the mall, are tons of folk looking bizarre attempting to determine the perfect gift.  I am not one of them. The tree will not be filled to capacity and that is okay.  We have the gift of tuition, just in time for the spring semester.  We have […]

  • Check the Root!

    It has been a precarious week! I was laughing and joking with a coworker less than a week ago, and then learned that her doctor phoned while she was in a meeting demanding her to get to the hospital to follow up on a test administered earlier that morning.  I left work to head out […]

  • Tracing Turkeys

    Growing up, I was never artistically inclined when it came to drawing or painting; and somehow, it was always a requirement in school.  The students who were gifted in this area thrived at the opportunity.  Very often they were also the same students who had difficulty in other subjects.  So to see the end result […]

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.
