Summer School/Camp Activities – What is your child involved in?

Filed under: Arts & Crafts,Events,Family,Parenting,School Activities — thesuperwomenblog @ 3:54 am

Today The Painted Pot came to my daughter school for a special arts & crafts activity. Now this is the second summer that I have come across The Painted Pot on her Summer School/Camp Calendar. So today I decided to finally see what The Painted Pot is all about. It is an art Studio with 2 locations in Brooklyn that is about helping your child bring out the creative side in them. And the cool thing is it is not only for the kids but they have events for adults as well.

To find out more about The Painted Pot locations and events check out the link below.

Provincetown to make condoms available at all schools – Local News Updates – MetroDesk – The Boston Globe

via Provincetown to make condoms available at all schools – Local News Updates – MetroDesk – The Boston Globe.

This was just sent to me and I glanced it over but one thing that caught my eye was someone asking what if pre-schooler obtained the condoms? Now I read that and I am thinking why would this be available for someone that  young to obtain? But we know kids are kids andthey will get into anything. But besides that I grew up in a strict Catholic home and I still as a young adult got into things that I was not suppose to. My parents gave me the right foundation but I was still week minded. As I got older my experiences have taught me what not to do and what to do. I going into all of this because I feel that with the right foundation and the maintaing open communication and building your child self-esteem if you are a parent that is against this then you should not worry. Because then your child will know that this is not for them.

But what about the kids that don’t have that. I say that as long as couseling and other forms of prevention (abstinence) is also spoke of to the kids then maybe we need to step out of the old way of thinking and ito the knew. Because the reality is if you don’t tell them or explain it to them someone else will. But why not let it be the school instead of someone else that does not have the best interest at heart of your child.

You want to see change in your life….Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Filed under: Faith,Family,Love,Mental Health,My Life — thesuperwomenblog @ 9:05 pm


I wanted to share with you the Wednesday Word from Jewel Diamond Taylor. I felt that word she shared today is very important. We live in a time where many things are uncertain. Yet there is one thing that is always certain and that is God love for us. God love for his children. A parent hates to see their children going through hard times. But being a parent myself now I understand how can I assure myself that my daughter gets it if I don’t allow her to go through the trials and tribulation that will test her. That will prove to her and to me that what I’ve taught her was not in vain. And in the same note I have to understand that at times she will fail the exam but ultimately she will pass the test. That is what God wants for us. But in order to do that we have to take his teachings and apply it to our lives. And we do that during our trials and tribulations. The trials and tribulations force us to move out of our comfort zone or to stay there and do nothing. That is not what he wants for us.


I can say for myself I have fallen back into my comfort zone and many times I feel like giving up, but I thank God for my friends and family. For those key people who know just the right thing to say to me.  They reminded me of how important it is to continue my daily walk with God. And that is something that I fell of track with. I recalled the difference in my life when I spoke to him daily. Not that the problems disappeared but my perspective changed. I was focused on my walk with him. I remember how wonderful that felt. And how I was able to see pass all the mess going on around me. I am fixing my eyes on him once again. And this Wednesday Word was just the reminder I needed that I can’t get comfortable. God doesn’t want me to get comfortable.


How can I set out to live a life that pleases him in every way when I can’t see pass myself and my own situation. Even though the comfort zone feels nice staying there too long can make you miss all the wonderful things God has in stored.


Thank you Jewel for this Wednesday Word. I prayer that it motivates and moves others as it did for me.

Subject: Wednesday Word
Date: Wednesday, May 26, 2010, 4:26 PM’Sometimes you may feel stuck between your pain and your promises because of fear,
procrastination, unable to see your worth and unable to see beyond your present
circumstances. The lies and confusion you saw as a child, in past relationships,
in school, past bad decisions and from the enemy can paralyze your ability to succeed
in life.


Growing out of a comfort zone or choosing to grow out of sin, addiction, drama,
confusion and bad entanglements can seem difficult, embarrassing, impossible, uncomfortable,
painful, awkward and uncertain.   Growth out of the familiar brings the pain that
births great change!


God wants to prove and move you to greater heights. God wants to stretch, confront,
change, and challenge you to go, be, do and have life more abundantly. It’s time
to press through any mess, shyness, insecurity, past rejections, wounded feelings,
denials, disappointments and false thinking.  Come out of your comfort zone. You
have dreams, possibilities, prosperity, blessings and so much of life to experience.
Accept the invitation today to grow out of your comfort zone.
Webster dictionary “grow” – to advance toward maturity, to flourish, develop, get
bigger. (listen to the song below by gospel artist Marvin Sapp “Comfort Zone).”
by Jewel Diamond Taylor



The Comfort Zone Poem (author unknown)
I used to have a comfort zone
where I knew I couldn’t fail,
The same four walls of busy work
were really more like a jail
I longed so much to do the things
I’d never done before,
But I stayed inside my comfort zone
and paced the same old floor
I said it didn’t matter
that I wasn’t doing much,
I said I didn’t care for things
like diamonds or furs and such
I claimed to be so busy
with the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
something special of my own
I couldn’t let my life go by
just watching others win,
I held my breath and stepped outside
to let the change begin
I took a step and with new strength
I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone good bye
and closed and locked the door
If you are in a comfort zone
afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners
were at one time filled with doubt
A step or two and words of praise
can make your dreams come true
Greet your future with a smile,
success is there for you!

I still believe love like this exsist….do you?

Filed under: Family,Love,Marriage — thesuperwomenblog @ 2:28 pm

My father passed away in 94′ and my mom still till this day wears her wedding band. I am sure that is a choice that she made but I also look at it as her committment to her marriage, her faith and the man she loved…my daddy.

I know that in this day and age we live in a world were it is easy to walk away from things like marriage. And at times no matter how hard we try to make it work it just doesn’t seem to. But I still have hope and faith that God still has that type of love for me. But first I have to love him and myself in order to love someone else.

I do believe that marriages like this still exsist and eventhough it is a different time and place the  principles are still the same. I think it is just the people that choose to think differently. I’ve seen in my family marriages that work and that don’t but that hasn’t changed  my idea about it. It has just helped me to be more realistic about how it comes and how we get to that point.

I do believe that marriages like this still exsist….do you?

Mental Illness and Minorities

Filed under: Family,Mental Health,My Life — thesuperwomenblog @ 7:41 am

As I research further into the world of mental illness I realize how lack of communication, knowledge, income and medical coverage can truly affect the way a person gets treated for mental illness. On a personal level I realize that communication and knowledge it what has been hindering someone I care about from seeking the help that is needed.

The below link is from an article from a site called Healthy Place  ( on Mental Illness and how it affects the minority community.
