LOVE IS DOPE

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!! 

Love is so dope, and Valentine's Day is one of those days that we pay homage to how great it is. For some of us we don't have a date, and that's okay. Because guess what!?!? The SistaGurl team is your Valentine. We love y'all so much that we dedicated this day, to positive energy, and written expressions of love!

Please check out these authors, and feel free to share with ALL OF YOUR LOVED ONES.

I can't feel so I tried to touch
I grabbed the tree and found only air
I held fruit in my hand only for it to rot then and there

The man that I was married to, the one I truly adored, hurt me. He hurt me in such a way that I may never recover. I allowed him to make a fool …

We Luh GOD, You Mad?

New Submission Alert!!!!! The Sista Gurl welcomes our newest writer Aliyah Young, and she is coming to encourage young women who have found their spirituality, but have been subjected to HATERS. Show her some love below. XOXO Capt SistaGurl
Anytime young christians mention being spiritually connected and consistently attending church, the commentary sounds something like, “They don’t do nothing but scam y’all for y’all money” or "You know JESUS ain't real right?". People tend to write God off because of worldly error. They disrespect our Lord and Savior while simultaneously disregarding a loved one's personal choice. One cannot blame people for being upset or feeling disdain for worldly corruption, but that doesn’t directly correlate to the Spirit of the Lord.
Making a choice to live for God shouldn’t be met with as much friction as it’s met with for young women of color like myself. It is not crazy, it is not strange, and we shouldn’t feel awkward speaking about the…
