Tiny & T.I.  threw their daughter a Rock Star birthday party complete with “ALL YOU CAN EAT CANDY”  this past weekend.  The really cool thing is that Zonniques Bio-Dad was there, parents take note: “It helps us kids when  everyone can get along with each other”.  Looks like it was a lot of fun (love the pink and zebra)!  

 Happy Birthday Zonnique!

What is Really Going on?

22 Mar

A BK teen was attacked viciously last week all because of a boy!  This is so unacceptable, we have to have love for one another and learn how to work out difference without violence.  Sending our prayers and support to the victim.  And to the person responsible for this, we pray that they get the help that is needed to learn how to handle conflict.
