Breathing Words/Actions of Life that has Empowered People to Excellency!”

Of all the gifts that we could every give to another person, none holds more potential than giving life itself. The idea that every interaction we have with another human being offers us that grand opportunity… to brighten another’s existence by breathing life into theirs. You may not see it or even realize it, but you have impacted many lives. Just by existing at this time and place, you’re changing what’s around you.
Words cannot describe and actions cannot do justice to the gratitude we feel when we think of all you have done. You challenge people to think about life differently. You challenge the world to think about life differently. When you read about injustices in our country and throughout the world, you show a righteous anger that is so pure and raw that it reminds us of what really should matter. Your work is essential, not only for the people you care for, but also for the society as a whole. Every effort you make, small or big, adds to people’s improved quality of life, and that is something to admire.
It is truly a great experience to be a part of your team! Thank you for the contribution that you have made in our lives! From all of us here at Westside Story Newspaper to you… Happy Birthday to our mentor and true leader… Much love!

When it comes to relationships, everyone wants to have that successful relationship. Some get sick of the dating scene after they keep getting into dead end relationships with no avail of finding that successful love. They then wonder what they’re doing wrong. In the society that we live in, it is embedded in sex, sex, and more sex. The media–from television, film, and music often fills peoples judgement to make them think that they have to have ‘it’ in order to have a successful relationship which only leads to heartbreak and confusion because people are not getting to know each other during the dating and courtship phase before marriage.
These are just a few of the points that are in Hollywood’s power couple, Devon Franklin and Megan Good’s book The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love. ‘The Wait’ digs deep into how to have a fulfilling relationship while doing things God’s Way. In the book it teaches you how to have that real intimacy that comes from truly getting to know the person which untimely determines if the person that you are dating is worthy of being your future spouse; and I can attest to everything that Devon and Megan state through out the book because me and my boyfriend are also practicing the Wait and it definitely makes things that much easier–as far as truly getting to know each other as each other’s best friend.
I also had the pleasure of attending a book discussion last night at Church of Christian Fellowship in Los Angeles where Emerging Leaders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs, hosted Devon Franklin and Megan Good’s book discussion of ‘The Wait’. After the discussion, everyone had a chance to meet the couple as well as have their books signed.
Below is the some of the discussion that took place last night. Enjoy, and leave your comments below. Also, don’t forget to sign up for our ‘Relationships Newsletter’ to receive more news on dating, marriage, friendship, and more relationship topics.
