In a special televised media event this weekend, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan vowed to continue to look for a group of missing schoolgirls recently abducted by Islamic rebels. He told the nation’ security forces and government officials that “everything must be done” to bring the girls home. And now, he’s reaching out to the United States for help.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
