If you are like me, you probably don’t like talking about yourself. You find it easier to be distracted by supporting, helping and promoting others. So, when I was challenged me to write about myself, I was initially stumped. I pondered and wondered for a week before telling someone about my conundrum. And as any good ally does, they reminded me of what I’m great at, of what I love to do, and for me that is acronyms! So keep an eye out, for an acronym is sure to appear! Let’s get this party started. Who is Meshell R Baker? And why is [...]

It’s that time of the year again, holiday season, and with that comes the holiday parties. We all want to look our best, but most of us are busy trying to balance family and work at this time, as well as trying to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones, and trying to make the majority of our holiday events.

The Benefits of Patience

That was a question I asked myself a few years ago. I was thinking this while I was looking at all of the people that were coming to OUR house for Thanksgiving, while I was silently praying for strength. Growing up, my parents’ house was the spot where many of our family and friends came to connect and socialize. With the passing of my mother in 2006, much of that had come to a screeching halt.
