When Praise Becomes Medicine. When Praise Becomes Medicine.

(ThySistas.com) I saw a post on Instagram recently of a brutha dancing in church, to a wonderful rendition of “For Every Mountain”. It was moving to me, and though the footwork was on point, it just seemed like he might have been releasing some burdens. Not to long after I saw that post there was another of an Elder and this sista was in a praise dance space and you could tell she was praying with... [Read more of this review]


Changing How We View Wash Day. Changing How We View Wash Day.

(ThySistas.com) I love my hair. It is apart of what makes me who I am. It is break comb thick, long, and has its own unique color that I simply adore. My hair has been relaxed, and I transitioned to it being natural in 2016. Going natural made me realize that I loved the outcome of my hair but I never liked the process. Living with a hair stylist that specialized in hair care and growth has it’s... [Read more of this review]


Experience Can Be A Cage. Experience Can Be A Cage.

(ThySistas.com) Life happens to us and in some cases it scars us in a way that leaves the experience etched into the brain. Those experiences have the power to shape our perspective, and the circles we’d run in or avoid. How people are seen becomes tainted regardless of how intelligent, cool, or spiritual we are. There can be an understanding that the bias is unfair, but we can’t see past them.... [Read more of this review]


One Room at a Time Sis. One Room at a Time Sis.

(ThySistas.com) Many of us have heard the phrase “cleanliness is next to Godliness”. It was one of the “nonbiblical” scriptures use to drive home the point that everything about us needed to be clean. Life happens in so many ways that everything around us can be thrown into disarray. Sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day to keep everything in order. I remember growing... [Read more of this review]


Control Can Be Dangerous. Control Can Be Dangerous.

(ThySistas.com) The only thing in this life that we can control is self. You’ve heard this before at some point in your life.

Drake: Sis Are You Surprised. Drake: Sis Are You Surprised.

(ThySistas.com) Hip-Hop is going through a lot at the moment. Every time we look up, it seems, there is another reason to say R.I.P., we’re shaking our heads because we don’t know what Ye is going to say next for those that still pay attention, and no it seems Drake wants to diss sistahs in his passive aggressive way. While all of this is vexing on levels, may I draw your attention to the last... [Read more of this review]

Feelings unchecked can harm others, and create... [Read more of this review]


Church Should Be More Than Routine. Church Should Be More Than Routine.

(ThySistas.com) Spirituality is vital to existence regardless of ones acknowledgement, or knowledge of such. In such a space everything has a purpose. There is no such thing as mundane action and movement. Everything that we do that has an effect on our natural space effects our spiritual existence. Understanding is key to spirituality.

Moving Through Pain. Moving Through Pain.

(ThySistas.com) “Death is a return” is a statement I’ve heard on many occasions. I can’t say I disagree with the statement, but I can say it has never brought me any level of comfort. It’s more of a factual understanding that I can acknowledge. Sometimes it may serve to remind me that even though we’re never ready for loss there comes a time when we must all return and embark on a new beginning.... [Read more of this review]


Should Women Have To Raise Their Men? Should Women Have To Raise Their Men?

(ThySistas.com) I have heard the line about women having to mold their man and turn them from boys to men for years but I never really took heed to it. I always felt that it was counterintuitive. Why should I have to raise someone that is supposed to be the leader in the household? Shouldn’t he be leading me? Shouldn’t we both be aiding in one another’s growth?
