    Hey Faye Thompsonistas,

    It may sound corny, but I love this country—imperfections and all. As a world traveler, I realize that no nation is perfect. Yet, there is no other place on earth I’d rather live. It’s a privilege to breathe American air and walk on this soil. It’s a privilege to have voted for President Barack Obama not once but twice not knowing that he would one day award my Uncle Amos Thompson the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor as a Montford Point Marine. The same uncle who worked on the B & O Railroad and taught me how to play jacks as a little girl in Ohio.

    Hey Faye Thompsonistas,

    What is it about megachurch drama that has us mesmerized? Perhaps it’s the whirlwind of larger than life personalities against a back drop of ego, pride, anger, lust envy, and greed that provides the perfect storm for the church’s shot callers. Or maybe it’s the flawed flock’s quest for salvation that mirrors our own and pulls us in. Executive producer Oprah Winfrey joins Lynn Whitfield, David Keith, and Merle Dandridge in “Greenleaf.”Check your local listings and tune into the 2-Night Series Premier tonight and tomorrow on OWN.

    Can’t wait till then? Curl up with my latest drama-drenched gem. Slippin’ Sippin’ Saints is available now. When you’re sleeping with the pastor of the biggest megachurch in town, every inch of you is a sin…

    Happy Summer!

    Hey Faye Thompsonistas,

    Oftentimes I wear a necklace that most view as the key to my heart. In fact, they often smile knowingly and comment on it. Lucky man. They grin. For me that necklace is so much more. It reminds me that LOVE IS THE KEY. What good is giving away the key to your heart to someone who doesn’t appreciate its value? As we understand our value we attract those whom, in turn, do too. Thus, we make better choices. Some things, some people are worth the wait. Students of life learn from their past and move forward. It’s not about him. It’s about HIM. Pick up your copy of The Wait by Devon Franklin & Meagan Good today. I just did.
