"The organization is called, Youth for Christ. It's an international organization and we are the only chapter in Louisville. So, we're on the campus and in the community. We're also in JCPS schools because we want to be everywhere the kids are. We have clubs and do different activities with the youth. We have middle and high school aged kids, which are 11-19 year olds. The organization decided that 'Yeah, we're on campus, but we're not reaching the urban kids', which is why we have City Life, which is located within the urban communities. Urban youth gravitate more towards their neighborhoods and surrounding communities, rather than their school. Urban youth may not have the basic needs, such as clothing and safety. They may experience drugs, alcohol, abuse, and neglect. We really just try to uplift the community and empower the youth to become believers of Jesus Christ. We also want them to be leaders for their communities, as well. We are holistic and have a holistic model that we follow with spiritual moral education and success. We realize that kids need to stay in school. If they stay in school, they can have better jobs with economic success. We focus on basic health and safety, too. Do the kids need glasses or food? We provide a meal and healthy snacks each day. We spend a lot of communicating and relational time with the kids. It's not a lot of programming, but it's a lot of talking and building trust with them. We're teaching them be leaders and great role models and to be good in school.
We have an opportunity to change. The hope that Christ gives us inspires me. No matter what I do, I still have an opportunity to make it better. To know that I can share my testimony to make somebody else's life better.
Count your blessings. Always write down and remember the things that God does for you because we often forget. Make each day better than the last. Don't forget to reach out to somebody for help and help someone else." - Whitney, City Life, Shawnee
When this was put in front of me, I wanted to scream “Cal-zone, cal-zoneeeee” to the tune of “Mike Jones, Mike Jonesssss” from the intro to “Badd” by Mike Jones, the Ying Yang Twins, and Mr. Collipark. Anyone else? Maybe I’m weird. Actually, I am 100% weird - and proud of it. •

"Three words to describe the West End, to be honest, it's all love. Now, let me elaborate on that. It ain't about the killings, drugs and stuff. That goes on in every city, every town, everywhere across the nation and across the world. So, we're not focusing on that part. I say it's all love because I'm not even from here but ever since I've been in this city, I seen the way that the love is displayed out here. The West End is where everyone wants to be. You got pros and cons to every situation but the West End is where everyone wants to be. Anytime something is popping in the city, they all flock this way. Anything that's great, going on with this city, has to do with the West End." - Mike (Left), Russell
"Stay focused and stay positive. You can't let hate get to you. Once you're up, it's more hate. A lot of people are going to hate on you. You know but my advice is to stay in school, stay out the streets, and stay positive. The streets ain't for everybody." - Mike (Right), Russell
Simple and, yet, not so simple. Simple & classic chocolate cupcakes with not so simple Whipped Milk Chocolate Buttercream. .
I think that’s my thrust with Syndesi, taking your classic and familiar desserts and upping the execution of it to something different, but yet still so familiar? I dunno. 🤷🏻♀️ Just a random thought for the day.
The fish special + fried polenta cake + asparagus = my love language, y’all! Happy Friday! #JCPEats

** NEW SERIES ANNOUNCEMENT - please read below ** •
Y’all. I am ecstatic to announce that my friend Melissa (@yourstruelymelly) and I are launching a collaboration together. Today, we introduce you to #Fat#FatPositiveFoodie. •
Let me tell you about Melissa. She is strong. She is confident. She is intelligent. She is beautiful. She is groundbreaking. She is political. She breaks norms. She encourages dialogue. She is an activist. She is a game-changer. She is fat. She is fabulous. She is one of my best friends - and she’s one-half of #FatPositiveFoodie. •
Through these posts, my hope is that we will increase the visibility of both food and body positivity. We want difficult conversations to transpire. We desire to foster a respectful, encouraging, intellectual atmosphere. We aspire to change the way that you see food, how you classify your relationship with it, how you view your body. •
Let’s change this cruel and unusual world together, y’all. #JCPEats
