• God’s Year in Review

    As we near the end of the year, I can’t help but reflect. Actually, even social media outlets engage in this practice by previewing one’s “Year in Review,” and other opportunities to peruse the highlights of one’s year through a pictorial representation. Certainly said collages are beautiful and perhaps bring us great joy, but I […]

  • Do You God!

    It’s a colloquium that I am over. Do you! What does that mean? On one hand, it encourages some demonstration of authenticity, and on the other, it is license to act without accountability or judgement. Either way, there is common understanding or expectation surrounding the statement, “Do you!” People cheer and support it. People celebrate […]

  • God Crossings

    My job is located adjacent to a side street that happens to be really busy. People are attracted to the area because there is a massive walking trail that the community finds appealing. Between people driving, walking and running, it can be challenging. I’ve had to hit my brakes a time or two quickly as […]

  • God, I Might Be An Angry Black Woman!

    I said it. After all, he knows my thoughts, and over the past 96 hours or so, they’ve been flooded with the heaviness of the reality of being Black and female. It’s an intersectionality that I’ve always appreciated and celebrated. It began as a child on the south side of Chicago, where it was affirmed […]

  • I am my own struggle!

    I cannot recall where I was sitting and having a conversation, but the saying emerged, where someone at the table said, “I am my own struggle.” When I tell you I can’t recall who said it, but I can recall the impact it had, man! We sat in silence, overwhelmed by the authenticity in that […]

  • Are you signal impaired?

    A few mornings ago, while backing out of the garage, I noticed the satellite radio in my car going through an update process. This happens occasionally, and soon thereafter, I can, as it’s said, “return to my normally scheduled program.” Before I was out of my neighborhood, the preview station, which promotes one to consider […]

  • I Will Bless Your Name!

    At church yesterday the choir sang, “You Alone Are Worthy.” Let me just provide the disclaimer that if you are within a certain radius and this song is sung, just be prepared to worship. Yesterday was no exception. After I began to reflect upon the week, challenges with my children, challenges with my job, challenges […]

  • I Bless You In My Numbness!

    Early last week I had to go to the dentist. Admittedly, it’s not one of my favorite places to go. I experience a little of anxiety, and so, when asked if I desired to have something to make me a little more at ease, I agreed. Now its important to note, I’m actually more uneasy […]

  • You Got Next!

    In a recent text message exchange with the post collegiate, I learned of her disappointment. Over the last three months or so, she’s learned that people on her job, specifically those hired after her are being paid at a higher rate of pay. Before the most recent revelation, she approached her manager. She unfolded her […]

  • If Jesus Deep Sighed, Why Can’t I?

    A few mornings ago, during my devotion, I read the 7th chapter of Mark in its entirety. It’s loaded with many instances that require their own exegesis. As I neared the end of the chapter, we find people bringing a person who could neither hear or barely talk to Jesus to be healed. I was […]

  • For We Consider Not

    In my time of devotion, I read the sixth chapter of Mark. The chapter is filled with a particular theme. Within it, we find people who knew Jesus as a child, and accordingly, questioned his ability to engage in ministry. Later in the chapter, we find disciples who walked with Jesus concerned about his ability […]

  • My Help…

    Twenty years ago one song in particular dominated the airwaves as well as my personal space. I listened to it in the car, while in the shower, at my desk, on the way to church and I found myself humming it often. The post collegiate was four years old, her father and I were separating […]

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.
