    How Healthy Is Our Soul?

    By Yemi Most people say I want change, but it does not resonate with their souls. You may be beautiful and physically fit on the outside, yet your soul may be broken and very fragile. If your external appearance is extremely attractive but your soul is weak you may not always be strong enough to resist the seducer who comes only to deceive. To generate successful change, we have to be holistically whole. This means being whole in mind, body, and soul. I am focusing on the strength of your Soul in this article as this sets the foundation for the other elements of mind and body. Do you believe…

    Study The Ingredients

    By Tangie T. Woods Do you deviate from cake and icing recipes to add your special ingredient to enhance the sweet flavor? Do you [we] study and follow ingredients in the gospel of Jesus to ensure food for our soul does not deviate from His biblical recipe? What about studying ingredients of people? Ingredients of people! What?! The below image was posted on Facebook by Lashelle, a sister-in-Christ. I immediately thought it would be a great blogging subject since perhaps some of us do not study ingredients of people before developing various types of relationships. The image reminds me of a beautiful cherub angel that was cast from Heaven. Unfortunately,…

    Wear The Mask!

    By Tangie T. Woods For me, wearing a mask is not essential while teleworking. However, it is essential to protect my health outside our home. If we love God we should keep His commandment; therefore, since He told us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, we should wear a mask when in public. On the other hand, THE MASK is required at all times since we all have an underline chronic illness call sin. During the coronavirus pandemic, even my car tried to get sick from not being driven, for approximately five weeks, after I started teleworking. Finally, the day came to use it, and when I backed…

    Pray And Praise God Without Ceasing

    By Tangie T. Woods Have there been times you did not feel like reading your Bible? What about times not wanting to pray? Have you ever felt weary and did not know the reasons? This happened to me on the morning of Thursday, August 20, 2020. When I woke up something was amiss and I could not figure out what happened for the sudden emotional change. Did I talk to the Lord through prayer about it? No! Did I thank Him for allowing me to live another day? No! Instead, I allowed my mind to be temporary blocked from my spiritual focus. Needless to say, the rest of my day…

We must also understand how to help each other out by staying at home and helping others stay at home. Therefore, we at The Girl Code (TGC) formed…

    Unlike Man, God Will Not Break Promises!

    By Tangie T. Woods “We trust words of mankind without question and doubt but often question and doubt the Word of God.”  – Tangie T. Woods Have you ever been hurt by broken promises? Did it leave your life with lasting negative side effects? Sometimes broken promises cut deep leaving a lifetime of pain. However, one must deal with side effects of broken promises to prevent everlasting pain and from moving forward in life. Easy said but nothing is impossible for our Lord and Savior. By His grace, I rose above very painful broken promises. Until my young adulthood, I harbored painful memories and hatred due to unfortunate situations transpired…

    Addressing Misconceptions About Self-Care

    By Niraj Shah Especially at a time where taking care of our mental health is extremely important, self-care is a term that has been mentioned a lot. There is a strong link between self-care and mental health, as self-care is something that is vital in order to ensure good mental health. Self-care is an extremely broad term and as a result self-care means different things to different people. In this article I aim to address the main misconceptions that people have about self-care. One vague and broad definition that I have seen refers to self-care as any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental,…
