Inaugural Award's Ceremony

The Power Within

One of my favorite lines from the Reggae Legend Songwriter & Singer, Bob Marley's song "Get Up, Stand Up" is....

"Most People think, that Great God will come from the sky. Take away everything and make everyone feel high. But if you know what like is worth, you will look for yours on earth."


When Jesus died on the cross, he committed his Spirit - leaving the Earth with his remembrance: The Holy Spirit. The Word says that the inner being that lives within us is greater than that which is in the World. The World perceives God to be so many things and as a result we have religion, standards, rules of engagement, spiritual cultures and even cults. All in the name of honoring this Great Spirit we call God. 







But the fullness of Living God cannot be contained to the fashioning of our minds and imaginations....only perceived from within. 
If you're struggling to identify yourself with God, as a believer of Christ--simply revisit the fundamental points of his life, his conduct and character while here on Earth and apply these attributes to that of your own. 
Do not become discouraged in trying to fit into a mold, nor allow the ignorance of others to dishearten you from deepening your relationship with Christ. 
Instead, seek guidance and counsel in God by way of prayer and meditation. 
God is ever near.

Excellence with COLOR, Culture and Creativity

We are just about ready to close out the 2018 year. It has been inspiring to work alongside and or admire from a distance a few exceptional women we known as, Women of Excellence.

In the Spirit of BECOMING as Former First Lady Michelle Obama puts it in her autobiography-- we never reach a final, finished or finite place but instead we Evolve continuing to learn and grow into the persons who are today.

This winter season we'd like to recognize two WOE whose lives speak to dedication and hard work they've put into that which they love  this year. They are two different worlds existing and thriving on opposite ends of the country but making a dynamic and colorful impression upon their communities.

Train Up a Child in the Way they Should Go....and when they are Old, it will not depart from them.

It's no secret that Prince George's County breeds some of the most brilliant, talented and exceptional people...we see them out in the World, on screen, in our communities, a part of our family and inner circle.
