“Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle” Romans 12:9-10 (MSG)
In other words, we shouldn't pretend to love each other but we should really love each other and love each other hard! Our love for others should supersede our love for ourselves! God placed His PERFECT love not only in His Son Jesus, but also in the children that He personally gives to us; I can personally attest to this! We live in a world full of people who are constantly seeking and yearning for unwavering love; as a Momma of two beautiful children, when God decided to bless me with London Victoria and Braxton Alexander, I no longer had to seek or yearn; my own dose of “pretend-free” love was given to me, yes, God chose me! Blessed- I would say so! You know that feeling that you get when you see a handful of extra fries at the bottom of your bag... yeah, that's the feeling I get every time I look at my babies; All Smiles and Extra blessed!
Now that you know my weaknesses, my babies and extra fries, I will take a moment to introduce myself! Ciao Everyone, I'm Porscha Coney! I was born and raised in the Buckeye State; Columbus, OH to be exact! After graduating high school I made the move to Cincinnati, OH to attend the University of Cincinnati. It was during my time at UC that I not only obtained my bachelor’s degree but I “grew up.” College taught me so much about myself and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity for growth, knowledge and the formation of life-long relationships. Cincinnati became my second home and ultimately the place where I would cross paths with “Him.” My rock, My love, My heart, My husband! After 6 years of marriage, Caesar, still has the key to my heart and plans on never giving it back, and even if he tried, I wouldn’t take it! There is no doubt in my mind that this man was created just for me; another reason why I am All Smiles and Extra Blessed!
Growing up in Columbus, I always knew that I wanted to go to college. And if anyone asked I would tell them without hesitation that I was only going as my back-up plan! My heart’s desire was to marry the one created for me and to be blessed with the opportunity to be a Stay-At-Home Momma and raise our children.
Well, God is in the blessing business and He hears our prayers! From the time our princess was born I was awarded the extra benefit of being able to stay home. Living my wildest dreams is an understatement! London and Braxton Coney, keeps this momma’s heart beating!
I truly believe that God speaks to us in various ways and the way that He communicates to me is through my London and Braxton. Through them, I can see and hear God so clearly! He encourages me through them, convicts me through them, guides me through them and loves me through them! Because of London and Braxton, my life is forever changed. They push me to be better, do better. Little eyes are watching me at all times and because of that I will always strive to lead by example by following God. I may not always get this thing called life right, but I will do everything in my power to always seek God while doing it! Through my stories and testimonies you all will get a glimpse into the World of the Coneys! It is my prayer that you will be encouraged, and that you will be able to feel the love of God through my words…
So here we go...
