Admit Now or Cry Later. Admit Now or Cry Later.

(ThySistas.com) I will confess that I never read a single Transformers comic book. I am a lover, however, of the movies.  There is something really cool about robots who actually like humans despite our crazy ways. The most recent film in the trilogy, The Last Knight,  has a transformer named Hot Rod.  With his beautiful French accent, he has the power to stop time.  Throughout the movie, Hot Rod... [Read more of this review]


Where is the Love for Disabled Citizens. Where is the Love for Disabled Citizens.

(ThySistas.com) America wants the world to believe we are a progressive nation. We are a nation that values democracy and fights for the citizens of this nation. I would love to believe that, but I live a very different reality. Granted I know there are many things about America that I could be proud of in principle, but my vantage point is very different as a black woman that is disabled. This is... [Read more of this review]


Sometimes Silence is the Answer. Sometimes Silence is the Answer.

(ThySistas.com) No one wants to feel that they are not being heard in a situation. Being silenced is uncomfortable, and can make one feel invisible in a relationship or work space. Far too often we tend to push our verbiage causing a rift that later we are unable to fix. When dealing with men sometimes silence is the path needed. Constant repetition that turns into nagging is an aggravation to whoever... [Read more of this review]


The Anger in Marriage Struggle Is Real…but NOT Impossible. The Anger in Marriage Struggle Is Real…but NOT Impossible.

(ThySistas.com) “…Do not let the sun go down on your anger…” I am paraphrasing the verse from Ephesians 4:26-27 I heard many times when couples attempted to give me advice before I get married in 2010.  Solid advice. I will admit it.  What they forgot to mention, however, is the difficulty to follow that advice once you are in the marriage. Reason?  Your choice to witness another... [Read more of this review]


Fighting God is Dangerous. Fighting God is Dangerous.

(ThySistas.com) I was once told believing in God is easy when everything is going the way you want it to go. We are conditioned to believe everything God that happens to us is because of God, and anything bad was because he allowed it or actually caused it. Many believe suffering is how God teaches, and corrects, us so we have to accept it. Many of us grow up hearing this form of “church logic”,... [Read more of this review]


Teach Your Daughter Manners. Teach Your Daughter Manners.

(ThySistas.com) The climate of our society seems more focused on the training and sensibilities of boys. I can’t count how many times I’ve heard women say: teach your son’s not to beat, teach your sons boundaries, teach your sons to respect girls, teach your sons to value women, and teach your sons manners. The problem with these focus statements is that we should be teaching this to all of our... [Read more of this review]


Butters Saved My Skin. Butters Saved My Skin.

Hair, nails, and skin are a very important part of one’s self image.

I take looks of medication for a laundry... [Read more of this review]


We Don’t Know the Blessing of Health Until it’s Gone. We Don’t Know the Blessing of Health Until it’s Gone.

(ThySistas.com) As I sit here writing about health, I realize it’s been over 20 years sine I’ve had a pain free day. I don’t remember what it’s like to wake up and just move about my day without having to map out how to get my body to comply with my wishes. An elder once told me that I could do anything in life I put my mind to as long as I had my health. I took her words for granted and thought... [Read more of this review]


The Hardest Black Conversation. The Hardest Black Conversation.

(ThySistas.com) Ah…Zora Neale Hurston.  A popular author? Not until after death for the most part. Why?  Her truth.  Most of her stories used real dialect and real conversations of African Americans in the South.  She never apologized for it.  Barracoon, a book written by Hurston but posthumously released, tells the tale of the last Black slave to travel from Africa to the Americas during... [Read more of this review]
