  1. As a woman of no color, I so appreciate her testimonial about recognizing her inner truth and the knowing of God’s support. How beautiful to share this with others!

  2. Thank you for this on today. As I continue to struggle with my personhood in the corporate and political world, this was encouragement. I will name God, “The God who knows the me He created.” For the assignments He has given me places me in spaces where I am challenged to be just by my shear existence.

  3. Ty ever so much for this beautiful article and it truly is well-timed. I had gotten a lil’ behind on my emails and I mumbled to myself, nooooo not another Mahogany email. While reading your article, I felt God reminding me that He not only sees me, He also knows exactly what I need when I need it. I, too, call Him Provider.

    • That’s so funny, sis! Thank you for keeping it real. I am honored that God used my article to bless you. God is not only our provider, but He truly sees us and knows exactly what we need and when we need it. Have a blessed day!

  4. I am so thankful for and enlightened and encouraged by your article!! Those of our Sistas who like you, desire to become mothers, need to know that we are seen by God and God is our hope. I pray Health and safe delivery and safe afterbirth for each and every future Mother.
