Hi Folks! I’m TorahCents…a fun-loving, ambitious, and (might I add) GOOFY girl who loves The Most High and loves to help women live their lives for God and LOVE the lives they live. 🙂
MY STORY I had always considered myself a believer and a “child of GAWD” (lol). In my family, I grew up going to intense bible studies, keeping the Holy Feast Days, and studying the scriptures with a Strong’s concordance to make sure the English translations were in line with the original Hebrew and Greek writings. Aaaaaaaand what did I have to show for all that???
A whole lot of head knowledge, but no true transformation!
With no adherence to the external moral code that I claimed to believe in, I ended up becoming a single mother at 17 years of age, going through various “waste yo time…waste my time” relationships with unqualified men, and getting in trouble with the law. Even though by the time I was 22 years old I had graduated from college with a triple major (Accounting, Finance, and Marketing) and started a small business, I KNEW my life was still going nowhere with my current reckless lifestyle. I was negatively affected…and so was my young son.
I went to “Church”….shoot…what easily impressionable black single mother DOESN’T go to “Church” and follow the
Massa Passa??? lol. I sang in the choir, helped the kitchen staff, and shucked and jived my way from the pew to the alter every weekend….yet there was still no change in my behavior. Everyone around me at “church” was living how they wanted…why couldn’t I? Right??? WRONG! It wasn’t until I moved to Charlotte, NC and where I dwelt in the company of true believers who actually LIVED what they taught.
- ~~~They didn’t just teach against adultery…they had great marriages.
- ~~~They didn’t just quote Proverbs 22:6…they had respectful, extremely knowledgeable
- and diligent children.
- ~~~They didn’t tell me I was a good person…they told me I had potential, but I had a lot of
- ~~~They didn’t just tell me to “pray about it”…they told me to stop praying for stuff I had
- been given the power to solve…and do what I needed to do to get it done.
- ~~~They didn’t just tell me to to love my neighbor… they held me accountable for my action
- and requested I do the same for them.
Now I am a WOMAN (who is very proud of my femininity and role in society)…a true lover of Christ…a critical thinker…a proponent of truth…an advocate of being practical…one who embraces spirituality instead of illogical religiousity…a discerner of men (and women)… a servant to others… a licensed CPA with a MBA in Accounting…a mother to an amazing, well-mannered son…and a wife to a galvanizing man who fits me like a glove. 🙂 I hope through my videos and my blog that I can help other many other women have similar (if not better) stories than mine
