I’m standing in front of Kirby Juvenile Detention Hall.
As a lost teen, I was frequently, in and out of Juvenile Hall.. Just, another angry teenager, whose father left home, as my parents separated..But not only did my father leave,but also my Martial Arts/Acrobatics Master and Role Model, who taught me and my brothers since we were very young kids..
I found myself without any guidance , my mom was depressed, my older brothers didn’t want to hang out with me, so I found myself hanging out with my junior high school friend, who had just joined a gang..Soon after,
I myself joined it as well, and by the time my family was aware of it, I was deep into the gang life, stealing cars , fighting, and on a path of self- distruction..Self-Distraction from the broken Family,that so many young kids experience Today...But by God’s Grace, just at the right time after being arrested for the last time , I was able to pull my self out of this life-style, right before my friends went to jail for murder..At that time, was when, I learned the power of a firm decision....
Now, I am able to connect with these teens and show them how I changed the direction of my life and focused on ways to give back!! This has truly been a blessing from God!

See my mother was a single mom of 4 working hard each and every day to make sure we didn’t fail, fall off or lag. I remember being at the very bottom with my family! Times with no food in the house, no lights on, no hot water to shower with and sometimes no lights or showers at the same time. I remember us failing as a family so many times but one thing that never did happen was ya giving up on one another... being minority and being broke made us appreciate each and every thing in life. Make us more open, willing and loving... helped us understand acceptance of different kinds. My mother was my mother and my father because my dad walked out when I was 7 and never returned. I know that where I am today has a lot to do with what we seen growing up and it pushed me to know that I didn’t want anything less than greatness! All of my siblings are in great places in life, nobody in jail or dead and everybody has a strong minded path. I love you momma for just being a warrior because I know it must of been hard trying to raise 4 and make sure you still took care of yourself. A lot of times I can’t remember my momma taking care of herself because she was so busy with others. Now that we are grown she has a chance to settle herself down and actually take time to be her own care taker for once but not only that now momma has her kids to take care of her! Our bond could never be broken, my mother is my hero, my mother will never have to wonder if her children love her or not because we love her more than life itself. Happy Mother’s Day to all the other mothers!!! Be safe and have a blessed day.

I hate to say it but most of my niggas in prison or jail
They told me it's tough to believe in a God when you living in hell
The guns gets loaded and bodies get dropped in this shit everyday
Your mama's a Christian her only position's continue to pray
Crack babies all in the hood and junkies all over the jets
When niggas would sell to their uncle it's just to come up on a check
My nigga called me told me he tryna move out the ghetto
Cause he might walk out the door and the hood can shoot him whenever
I'm raised in a city if there is a problem you don't call the cops
Nigga this shit is so real in the field that we play with the Glocks
Our father which art in heaven
Hollows will be in the clip, I pray that you send me a blessing
My message to youngins is pick up a book and let's put down the heat
Murders on top of the murders, another one covered in sheets
Another memorial, candles and teddy bears all in the streets
Another lil nigga who face on a shirt as he resting in peace
Just cause you throwing your life away that do not mean that you gangsta
I don't consider that real when they go flashing the banger
Niggas who really 'bout violence they only move in silence
Niggas react on emotions just shows me the lack of knowledge
Just being honest
Restricting our minds from seeing the world we holding it hostage
Go and get some money and put your family up into a crib nigga
Never hated on whoever made it that's real nigga
Pray for my mind and pray for my soul and cover my body
These niggas with me will shoot up your party
So many blessings but still I be stressing
I just want some head from this girl that I'm texting
Is it too much that I ask for?
Guess that's why my career slow
My niggas don't want to see me grow
Fuck it you ain't got to understand
Get it popping just like a frying pan
Sick of weight I need a diet plan
Seven figures on my new advance
Lord knows screaming fuck them all
They pop up missing I am not involved
The devil hit me but I missed the call
Ain't no humble I'm just warning y'all
Tell them niggas ain't no love lost
I'm building mines just like a real boss .

My promise, and my heart ❤️ I will do everything in my power to be the best husband and father I can be. There's no reason for this message except just try and express how lucky I am and to be sorry for my lack of appreciate and expression over the past decade. I promise to make up for that and treat my perfect girls the way they deserve to be treated

This painting by Jacques-Louis David was easily one of my favorites in the Louvre. Bear with me, I’ll be quick with this history lesson.
.
.
Called “The Intervention of Sabine Women”, the scene depicts a legendary episode in Rome in the 8th Century BC. Sabine Women were abducted by the neighboring Romans, and we see Hersilia in between her husband (the King of Rome) and her father (King of Sabine) — family drama much? Unlike David’s previous paintings, women play a very crucial role in this one. The women have been vital to the reconciliation of the French after the Revolution. David began this piece of work in 1796, after his estranged wife visited him in jail. He conceived the idea of telling the story, to honour his wife, with the theme being love prevailing over conflict. May we all find that kind of strength and love within us. #Louvre #Love #sinosicatTRAVELS #Paris

You gave your all (and the prime years of your life) to make sure your kids and your family were a success. Some people will never understand the commitment and love it takes to do what you did. My life could have been so much different if it weren’t for you. I could have been in a gang. I could have a father who was in and out of jail. But I don’t. Why? Because you were plugged into your kids lives and saw a dream that they (or even the world) didn’t know could exist. It took all of your strength to keep your entire family safe from the real dangers in life. You are misjudged but I know who the real you is. And as your grandson I am forever grateful for the strength I have from you. I will always remember what I’ve learned from you. I will always cherish you. Always. I love you grandpa. ❤️💪🏽 #ripgrandpa #forevergrateful #pioneer

It is such a blessing to have this family 🙏🏾 @erv_i_am and #VirsaviyaArtHeart I can’t thank Jesus enough for what He have done for me. Remembering my journey I don’t even think I deserve all this and I can’t understand how I was able to make it so far. Being a regular Russian girl, not smart, always in the hospitals, very skinny, very shy, raised in a very small city unfortunately not in the healthy environment with alcoholics and drug addicts around. Most of my childhood friends end up being drug addicted, in the jail, some of them are dead or missing. My real father was alcoholic he were choked and thrown to the river by Russian mafia because they wanted to take his apartment when I was 12. We thought he is missing but in 1 year police found his bones(My stepdad that was with me for 20 years died last year from cancer) my auntie and uncle died from alcoholism when I was a child. Even though I didn’t smoke or drink or did drugs but I got married with the drug addicted person who abused me for 5 years just because I came from the destructive family and didn’t know any better I thought I could help him and save him. What a lie? Only Lord can help to those who is willing to accept this help and try their best to change.There is much more that I can’t disclose for now.. maybe one day I will. But thinking lately about it a lot I just want to say that I would never make it on my own. My God gave me everything. He gave me strength, hope, wisdom, self love .during the huge struggle I was able to get out of the place where was no future, from the city where was no opportunities, from the family where was no relationship and love. He opened new doors for me, kept a very few the most important people in my life like my best friend @fuentas_ my mom @lenakonynnikova my spiritual mentor @panova.olgas and delivered me to the new life that I’m showing you now and here just because He saw me trying to change my life, He saw my heart as He sees yours. I will never say I did it on my own because I didn’t it’s all Him. And whatever you going through just know my Lord is here for you and He can deliver you, just please try your best. Tag those who need it, help them to believe

I remember sitting in jail after just being arrested for my third DUI. And I remember it so vividly – laying on that plastic mattress, in that 6ft x 8ft cell, in that blue jail jumpsuit, staring at the ceiling, tears rolling down my face, and wondering if I would ever be able to live a normal life ever again. I had nothing left. No place to go. No place to live. Not a single friend. Not a single penny to my name. My family – who tried with everything they had, and loved me with everything that they are, told me to never contact them again.
Fast forward, 7 years and 7 months and here I am. Clean. Sober. Redeemed. Restored. Renewed. And living a normal life. And not only living a normal life, but by the grace of God, living the happiest life I could’ve ever imagined. A homeowner. A Godfather to the most awesome nephew. A job I love. A passion for writing that cannot be contained. A desire to change lives, save lives, and turn hearts towards Christ. Spiritually and physically in a place that I’ve never been. Best friends with my mother and my father – who, after all this pain and misery, I had the chance to lead to Christ and baptize (as the tears roll down my face). But this post isn’t about me. This is about God. This is about His amazing grace. This is about Jesus. If He beat death, you can beat absolutely anything you’re facing. ANYTHING. Because that same exact power lives inside of you. #PHIL413

Yall Saw The Movie....Katherine couldn’t understand why Joe used the little money they had to buy instruments, mics & amps instead of buying Jackie a new pair of shoes or fixing the roof.....His Response ? “I’m Thinking Bout The Future...Im Getting My Kids Out Of Gary, Indiana !!!”
He Saw The Future And Poured His Own Musical Expertise & Knowledge Into Them. The average father in that era would’ve left his kids and the mother to fend for themselves but he stayed to raise his sons into men and often bragged how to this very day “NONE of my sons have ever been in jail or on drugs and that’s because of my discipline, chores and rehearsals that kept them off the streets and out of gangs”.....Can’t Argue With That

He was the one that made his sons see the VALUE in their worth when he pushed his kids into signing with Sony Records which allowed them to have the creative artistic control that Motown didn’t give them...If the Jacksons would’ve stayed with Motown, they would’ve been an oldies act in their mid-20’s/late teens and MJ would’ve NEVER blew up as a solo artist the RIGHT way or it would’ve been short-lived...No Thriller, No Victory Tour etc so THANK HIM FOR THAT
NO MATTER HOW THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WORLD JUDGES YOU, US REAL DIE HARD JACKSON FANS THAT KNOW THE HISTORY ARE GONNA ALWAYS LOVE YOU...JOB WELL DONE....REST WELL HAWK ! PLANET 12 SALUTES YOU...My Extreme Love, Condolences And Prayers To The ENTIRE Jackson family who I love soooo much and thank everyday for their influence on my career

I believe in the strength of roots.

As a young child, I lived in the forested countryside of Washington State. Trees were my jungle gyms, home to my moss-covered floor castles, the source of endless apple meals and shelter from the ever-present rain. Yes, trees were what I saw growing up. They were the greatest gift a child could have. But the roots, they are the true, unseen endowment.
Roots play a vital role in the growth of a young seedling. Their never-ending purpose, is to bring nourishment and moisture to the upper branches. As trees grow, their roots intertwine with each other, as if they come from the same seedling. During storms, this reinforcement keeps the trees from tipping over, stabilizing sloping landscapes from erosion.

Similar to trees, family roots are essential in providing nourishment and stability against the storms in life. My family has had its share of storms and erosion; from alcoholism, neglect, abuse, addiction, fires, jail, divorce, death, perilous surgeries, and suicide. Yet, many of my family members have dived deep into the depths of their souls searching for spiritual nourishment from the living waters of Christ.

My mother was the first in her family to seek spiritual nourishment from Christ. She yearned to raise her children in a stable environment that would provide reinforcement for generations to come. Diving deep into the Gospel of Jesus Christ, she was successful in ridding our family of the eroding effects of alcohol, neglect, abuse, and addiction. Her strength of purpose eventually led my father to change his life-style and accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. Together, they brought spiritual strength and purpose to our family. Their intertwined roots have helped stabilize four generations, totaling 91 family members and counting.

When family members have lost their ability to stand strong, our family has come together to surround each with love and support. My parents have passed a thirst for spiritual nourishment onto their children to help strengthen their young seedlings. The roots of the gospel of Jesus Christ have enriched my family for more than 60 years. The true endowment of joy comes from my roots.

As you wrap up your 28th year as a servant to to the people of Maryland and the City of Baltimore “I hope you know” how you have impacted so many!

You’ve been doing this since ‘84 and I hope you know you have inspired and helped tens of thousands of people.

But I hope you know, while you were chairing the Black Caucus, fighting for Drug Treatment programs (instead of stiffer jail sentences), writing legislation for Expungement of criminal records for those who have been arrested in Baltimore but never charged with a crime, sponsoring laws like the Maryland Minority Business Enterprise Act (to help minorities gain participation in major state business projects), serving as the Chairman of the Baltimore City Delegation for 12 years, or even sponsoring the 2nd Chance Act to help people w/misdemeanor convictions get a 2nd chance at being a productive member of society. YOUR IMPACT AS A FATHER, FRIEND AND HUMAN BEING HAS BEEN FAR GREATER!

I hope you know what it meant to me when you made it to every game, you disciplined me so society didn’t have to. You ARE a father to my friends who didn’t have a dad. You made sure I respected women so you showed me how to love by the way you treated your daughter, your sisters and any female in your life.

I hope you know that you have ALWAYS been our super hero and the lessons you taught us will be passed down in our family for generations to come.

Although, I didn’t show much appreciation then, I hope you know how grateful I am that you showed up to my school and called me out in front of my classmates when I wasn’t living up to my potential. You taught me how to face my fears instead of running from them…You turned me into a fighter and not a quitter…most importantly, you taught me how to be a father!

AND I HOPE YOU KNOW...In this day in time where people lust for likes on social media. I refuse to stand silent and allow for cowards to try to emasculate you in order to gain power in politics. So today I just wanted to let the world know how great you really are. I LOVE YOU POPS!

28 years of service and I hope you know you are appreciated. Your are loved and you are a LIVING LEGEND!

I know the Bible says ‘honor your father and mother’ but does honoring my father mean letting him stay? - LaToya, New York

Hey LaToya 👋🏾, no honoring your father
does not necessarily mean you have to let your Dad stay with you. When the Bible says ‘honor your father and mother’ (Ephesians 6:2) the word honor comes the Greek word ‘timeo’ which means to value, honor, and hold in high esteem. From what you’ve shared in your email it seems that you and your Dad have had contentious relationship and it may not be the best thing to let your Dad come and live with you. Honor is a matter of the heart - not just what you do for people but how you treat them. The best way to honor God by honoring your Dad is is to forgive your Dad for not being there for you when you were growing up. The next thing to do is forgive yourself for holding onto to all the unforgiveness and pain you could’ve let go. The third thing is to do what you can to help your Dad find a place to stay. Calling your Dad’s family would be a good place to start, looking for rehabs that offer extended stays is another option. If your able to, you could financially help your Dad get into his own way place. Either way, Honor is a matter of the heart and you can honor someone without allowing their bad habits to negatively impact your life. 😘 Hope this helps, XoXo, Candice

Thoughts from a man who lost 250 pounds and found the woman of his dreams... My television debut on @TLC #SkinTight ended with me commenting that the biggest lesson from my weight loss and subsequent loose skin removal was this: "What really matters in the grand scheme of things is how we're able to connect with the people that love us." My transformation let me see I was a prisoner in my own body. And much like a prisoner coming out of jail, freedom was not initially liberating. It has taken years of self development, introspection, growth and professional help to become the man I was the entire time.
The man worthy of being called Rebekah and Jaina's father and husband to @gracegulley .

I did not become my best self because I lost and kept off the weight. I lost the weight BECAUSE I became my best self. I kept the weight off because I continue to work on myself-- in the gym of course, but more importantly I followed the admonition of Paul who encouraged the Philippians to work out their salvation with fear and trembling. That isn't to say we walk around terrified but rather that we remain mindful, vigilant, humble. It means having the courage to get back in the gym after missing a few days. It means having the humility to know you don't know everything and the wisdom to understand that not only are you NOT perfect, no one expects you to bel (except yourself like this recovering perfectionist). Meeting her was as much a part of this destination as my first workout, my triathlon, my skin removal. She is both the happy ending and the perfect beginning. She is every moment in between.
My perfect little family is getting even perfect-er on May 12th ♥️💑🎉👰🏻. Then it's time to take this post #SkinTight body to Iceland 🇮🇸!!!

Well well well🙄😭 Who ever knew I’d be making a Father’s Day post about this man 😂😩 This not only my baby father but he my BEST friend I swear. You done took me so many places that I thought I’d never go(especially at my age). You done came out of yo pockets time after time JUST to simply see me smile and have a good time. I’ve had some of the BEST times of my life because of you☺️☺️Youve never let me struggle whether it was my hair, nails, car note, idm I ask, YOU GIVE no questions no having to pay you back. Considering I already had twins I never expected ANY man to accept me and treat them like they own. Not only do you love my twins like they yours but your family love them too. Yo family has done and bought them things they real family has NEVER😩💯 Yo family make sure I gotta baby sitter, make sure they got clothes, make sure they haircut/done. When I went to jail the twins real family wouldn’t even answer my calls, y’all told me “don’t worry we got them while you gone” I came back to my baby FINALLY having a haircut after months of me trying to get him one 😭😭 and they both knew all they colors and numbers. You’ve taken them to zoos, amusement parks, aquariums and introduced they little brains to so much. I must admit I wasn’t ready to have another baby and when tax time came (as much as I don’t believe in it) I was thinking about getting an abortion 😒 but as hard as you go for TWO kids that’s not even yours I can imagine what this baby got in store. I’m positive my baby won’t EVER struggle or go without because of you and your family. They was so excited and supportive when we told them I was pregnant. I love you, you my soul mate bruh I swear I’ll never leave yo side 💯💯💯 TiL death do us part baby daddy😜🤞🏽🤷🏽‍♀️ Happy First Father’s Day 💖😌
