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.

Bernice King, the daughter of civil rights leader Martin Luther King responded in part that the Black Lives Matter movement is “a rallying cry” and that “justice is not a competition;” to which Crews replied, “You are right, @BerniceKing. I just want to make sure it stays that way. No competition, just creativity.”
Journalist Roland Martin invited Terry onto his “Unfiltered Daily Digital Show” to talk about the tweet, the backlash, and to give Terry a chance to explain what he meant:
