I know it has been a awhile and I have truly missed blogging. Yet, I have been all over the place and sometimes those places are low. Not depression low but energy low. Being a single mother, school, working and still trying to chase a dream is draining. But at the same time for me it's important and worthwhile, so I keep fighting to have it all. Regardless, of the number of days without sleep, food or inspiration it's important because I truly believe that I cant teach my child how to follow her dreams and achieve them if I myself gave up. Worthwhile because those little accomplishments really feel good to my soul. Sometimes my accomplishments make me nervous because I know their getting bigger each time. Yet still I'm learning that it is also imperative that I feed my dream everyday because it's extremely hunger. And when it's hunger I know that I am not feeding it as i should because I feel low. Everyday I read and research a lot about all sorts of things and eventually it will all pay off and to be honest, I'm really in no rush. What God has for me, is for me! I'm not expecting a financial blessing, though I would love one. But I'm hoping for a turn around. A turn around that allows me to be paid daily to feed my dreams, a turn around that will force me to stand in the gaps for those you can not themselves feed their dreams, a turn around that will force me to keep becoming a better human being. One that opens my mind to all possibilities of God and teaches me how to become more tolerant and patient with things and people of this world. A dream that forces my heart to be compassionate and my attitude to be humble. A dream that my children, family and friends are able to touch therefore opens their minds to believe that achieving anything is possible. I don't ask for much because I am truly rich in love, life, and happiness. Things could always be better. However, I don't complain because they have been worse. Somebody didn't wake up this morning to continue living for their dream. So keep fighting, sometimes you will have to compromise but remember anything you feed with eventually come to life when God feels that you are ready. Not when you want it! So Dream...
How did you become a writer?
In 2010 I was asking and praying to God for him to show my calling in life. My co-worker suggested I read a book called “purpose driven life.” I enjoyed the book. But I still had more questions and I still didn’t know my purpose. So I continued to pray. Well Oct 2011 I was laid off from my job. I said ok, God I know you don’t close one door without opening another one. So he simply said “write.” I said write what!? I’m not a writer. He said a stage play. I had no formal training, no classes. I hadn’t even been in a play. But I tell you this. He gave me every tool and resource I needed to write and the rest is history. What are some of the challenges that come with being the writer, the producer, the director, the promoter of your shows and company Leslie Pryor Productions LLC?
Wow.. And Marketer/ PR and the list goes on. So yes the main challenge is wearing every hat at the right place and time. Being the writer is different from the director and being the…

You ever have someone tell you to be still and you’re like,
“I am being still!” lol, I have heard that statement I don’t know how many
times the past two years. I have also asked myself I don’t know how many times
this past year, “what does being still really mean?” Like, “what does God want
me to do? Stand in a corner until he sends for me?” Like, “am I not being still?”
Today, I realized, that though I thought I was being still. I was not. Psalm 46:10-11 says, Be still and know that
I am God; I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of host is with us; The God of Jacob is our refugee. My God, My
God. Scripture to me in many ways isn’t always self-explanatory but this here
word, is! Being still means despite how things looks around you from your
vantage point, trust God. Place all your insecurities, worries and doubts on
him. He will fight the battles that you can only fight in the physical. Stop
trying to control things, God doesn’t need any hel…
