Praxis, a fancy word that means skill. When confronted with the trials of life, we have choice. We have agency. Through Praxis, a weekly blog, Dr. Helms Pickett’s transparency will give you clarity. You will learn tools to engage despite your present circumstances. Praxis offers Biblical application to daily life. Just as the Lord told Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.” (Exodus 14:15) Praxis admonishes you to “move on” and onward to what God has ordained for your life. Start your Monday off with the boost you need without the added caffeine!

Have You Unsubscribed?

If 2020 has taught me nothing, I’ve surely learned that I have little to no time to be entangled in foolishness. God has been too good to accept the limitations of others as permanent fixtures in my life. I simply don’t have the energy to act outside of the will of God. As I was attempting to clear out my…

You’re Struggling

You’re Struggling

I don’t think that I dream often while asleep, or rather if I do, I do not recall the dream when I wake up. However a couple of nights ago was certainly the exception. Not only do I recall the dream, but I woke up immediately pondered the message. In the dream, I was walking outside, seemingly from a building…

When God Says Enough

When God Says Enough

Let me offer the caveat. If blue was not your color, you might elect to check in next Monday because this blog is centered on the magnificent declaration that occured over the weekend in the Biden Harris camp. The Peanuts gang told us over 50 years ago, that people shouldn’t discuss, “politics, religion and the great pumpkin.” Lucky for you,…

Let Come What May

Let Come What May

I didn’t understand as a child when I overheard the elders saying, “I need a hymn.” I just assumed it was yet another tactic to hold us hostage in the sanctuary as opposed to sneaking to the nearby candy/liquor store. However, I grew up in a church that required us to learn hymns, and the words were far from my…

And All That Is Left

And All That Is Left

About three months ago, a friend shared a link to a song that continues to bless me to this very hour. It is entitled, “That’s the Story I’ll Tell,” by Maverick City. The words ministered to me so deeply, particularly amidst one seemingly insurmountable challenge I found myself navigating. The psalmist articulated not only what I was experiencing, but every…

Remind Us of the Help We Forget

Remind Us of the Help We Forget

Since we’ve been sheltering in place and managing our current situation, I’ve heard the slogan, “We’re in this together” repeatedly. I guess while I am struck by it, I’ve never quite drank the kool-aid. Why? Because every demonstration seems to mock this consideration. Folx won’t wear masks, folx won’t stay home, and folx won’t refuse to gather. Folx somehow forgot…

Help Me With My Doubts!

Help Me With My Doubts!

Do you have them? Do they overwhelm your peace? Do they thrust you into a sunken place? Do they attempt to rob you of the abundance of God? I suspect each of us, as holy as we are, can answer yes, at some point in time, or perhaps even earlier this week, this day, this morning, or even right now.…

The pageantry of satan

The pageantry of satan

Over the weekend, I was cleaning out a closet. Allow me to be a bit more specific. I was cleaning out my mom’s closet, which houses all my dance ministry garments. To be honest, it takes up the majority of her closet. My mother has always been a minimalist, and I perhaps operate as the polar opposite. Funny still is…

Rest In God.

Rest In God.

If ever there was a time to rest in God, I would suggest that the time is now. Over the last nearly seven months, we’ve witnessed lives lost to a virus associated with a medical diagnosis, as well as lives lost to a virus associated with hate. I shared in my personal social media that the narrative of Brianna Taylor…

Shut Up!

Shut Up!

What does it mean to hold your peace? It means to keep quiet, or how God would have me to understand, “to shut up.” Don’t laugh. Like I’m the only one He speaks to like that. Tis true. Last week while navigating a couple of opportunities to put my mouth on something, I was led to Exodus 14:14, which reads,…
