Soul Search Sunday: In Good Company

Tragedies of life are always hard to get through. They are even harder to get through alone. Being in good company always makes the difficult times that much easier to cope with. Surround yourself with loved ones and tackle life's challenges together.

SERVICE SATURDAY: In Honor of Jared Thomas - Donate to The American Heart Association

Today I made a donation to The American Heart Association in honor of my friend, Jared Thomas, who passed last week as a result of his heart condition. This is close to me because my younger brother was born with a small heart murmur as well. He was a dear friend to so many and he will be missed forever. I would like to help gain awareness for heart diseases in his honor by way of the American Heart Association. Go to to make a donation of any amount and find out how you can help save someone else's dear friend from heart disease. There is also a video below about The American Heart Association. Thank you for taking the time out to read this post. Rest peacefully, Jared. I love you!

How soon is too soon to meet the family?? I am an advocate for not bringing every guy to meet your parents especially if they're not going to be around long. If you know it will be short winded from beginning, I wouldn't bother. After the third date sounds like a good time to introduce the guy you're dating to your parents. By then you know if you'll be embarrassed by him or if he can impress your parents the way he impressed you. (Tip) If you know your parent's would not approve of your guy in any way, should you really be dating him? A family dinner at your parent's is the traditional "meet the family" setting. Try something fun like going bowling with your parents and your guy. The setting takes some of the pressure off of your guy. Holidays are great for meeting the extended family. If your family is the type to grill a guy, be sure not to leave your guy alone for too long. That can be intimidating for him. If he can hold his own throughout the interrogation, that's a good sign for you. Meeting the family is something that has to be timed just right. Too soon can make him feel like you're getting too serious too fast. Waiting too long can be offensive. But the good thing is once it's over it's a relief to have your family meet someone who is beginning to mean a lot to you. Now you can concentrate on other things like impressing his parents.

Music Monday: We love the 90's- The Super List

Welcome back, Brown Queens. It's MUSIC MONDAY!!! I'm so excited about this post not only because it's about music, but it's also about one of the best decades to produce so much great music. I'm talking about the 90's. Today on MUSIC MONDAY we're going to travel back in time, not too far back, but just far enough. If you were around in the 90's then you remember the baggy jeans we wore (women and men), the dark lipstick, midriffs, jean ensembles, leather pants, big stereos, and two-sided cassette tapes. The music of the 90's was filled with feel good music, r&b love ballads, socially conscious hip hop, gangster rap, etc. Some of the best girl groups also came out in the 90's too. Brown Queens thrived in the 90's along with so many other artists. Here are some of the artists that kept us " jammin' " in the 90's! The music is so good that there are 15 90's songs added to the playlist this week! What are some of your favorite 90's artists? Share them with us! Join, comment, and tell ALL of your friends.

SOUL SEARCH SUNDAY: Fast-forward To The Good Part

Don't you wish you could fast-forward to what you think will be the best part of your life? Wouldn't it be great to skip the hard work and skip right to the rewards? Or skip the awkward meetings and jump right into your happily ever after? We often think about rewinding life, going back, to change something we regret. But what a gift it would be to forget those regrets and fast-forward life right? Wrong. As much as I hate to admit it, it's all necessary. Time does not speed up or slow down. There's no remote control to life that fast-forwards your late night studying or multiplies the money you've been saving for that big thing you've been wanting to do. All the time it takes to get there is necessary for things to align just the way you need them to. When things are great you want them to be just right. There are things in your life that must fall apart before they fall into place. Skipping important scenes in your life would be like skipping to a great ending without knowing how you got there. You can't thoroughly enjoy a great ending until you've experienced what it took to get there. Life is an experience. Make the best of it. If you put on your best performance, your director is sure to give you his best 'RE'ward-winning work.

"We do this!"... Three words you can expect to hear from Jeremy Calhoun and Alton Cryer when it comes to serving the community. These words are backed up by action through their community outreach program, STS Enterprise, Setting The Standard. Both seniors at The University of Memphis(Go Tigers), Jeremy and Alton founded STS in November of 2012 with hopes of setting a new standard through mentoring, public speaking, and of course community outreach.
On April 27, 2013, STS hosted a volunteer event entitled "Bridging the Gap" where fellow college students came out to senior community home, Wesley Senior Ministries. From 9:30am- 12pm STS spent quality time with the seniors, serving breakfast, playing games, and engaging in good ol' conversation. Jeremy and Alton both agree; It's critical for the youth to spend time with the seniors assuring them that someone is still thinking of them and cares about their well-being. The gentlemen note that many of them have outlived their family members. The room was filled with transactions of youthful energy and graceful wisdom as STS connected with the seniors. I wasn't at Wesley Senior Ministries for very long. However, within that short period of time I was able to interact with the seniors as I joined in on a game of bowling on the Wii. Also, my perception of senior homes was changed almost immediately. Spending time with seniors as community service was never my preference and often takes the backseat to volunteering with children or mentoring youth. I quickly found out that it's a necessary service and sometimes teachers have to sit down and be taught. There's so much to learn from the seasoned individuals right in our own communities. Jeremy and Alton seek to make this a monthly event and welcome any others who wish to volunteer their time with any of their service opportunities.
On behalf of The Brown Queens' Constitution, I would like to thank STS Enterprise for inviting me and I wish your organization much success. These are the very deeds that make you what we at The BQC call "Everyday Royalty"!! You have the support of The Brown Queens always! #BrownQueensSupportBrownKings Thank you for what you do!

Contact STS to inquire about volunteer events.
