Here’s a laugh out loud moment in honor of Beyonce’s birthday. Shared from PopSugar.com, a student emails her professor about her absence in observance of today’s “special Holiday.” I’m sure Beyonce’ appreciates the gesture.

My past weekend was really full. Despite that it was still great. I want to take the time out to do a quick recap and thank you’s for 2 events I was a part of this weekend.
The first event was “Every Moment” put on by the youth dancers of Judah Dance Conservatory
The youth put on an amazing dance showcase in celebration of the end of their dance summer camp. I was really proud of the youth and I enjoyed seeing them enjoy themselves while in their own creative elements. If you missed it, words can’t even describe how great it was. The kids hard work paid off and they went above and beyond what I could’ve imagined. It was really great stuff.
My poetry group “Breaking Free” also had the opportunity to make a quick appearance during the show. We shared a poem entitled “truth moments” hoping to fit in with the overall “every moment” theme. We were glad to be invited out and glad to be a part of the show.
Special acknowledgement to Ashlee Joseph who worked with the kids all summer long. I can’t imagine the patience she had to have to work with so many kids. She really brought out the best in the kids. We need more people like her, working with our youth giving them something positive to be a part of.
Congrats to Ashlee Joseph and all the kids who performed! Wishing even more success for the next showcase!
The second event was one hosted by our Poetry group at church Breaking Free. It was a great night, we had special guests poets: Ahynte and Nadia. Along with musical guests Kiddz Church,kHIMsitry from P29, Dez and The Future and JT. Thank you to our wonderful host Bro. Marcus. A special shout out goes to LaTara J. for her first time getting on the mic! We welcome her into the poetry realm as “Triumph.” She did very well last night.
Overall the show went well. We appreciate the love and the support of those who came out. I’m thankful for the growth between the first and the second show. There were a lot of challenges faced in prepping for the show, but God was faithful in helping us pull everything together. I’m glad that we all had the opportunity to share our gifts and be a blessing unto others. I’m looking forward to the next show and watching God continually break free in us through our poetry.
A special thank you to Meagan and Kemust who are a part of Breaking Free with me. I enjoy working with you all and the journey we’ve been on in helping each other grow in the ministry. I’m praying God helps us to continue to grow according to his will as more doors begin to open for us through our spoken word.
Had a blast this weekend. It was only the beginning, my work is not over. Another poetry appearance this Friday! Great things are happening as more doors are opening. Full weekend, but it was worth it all.
