Brandi Holmes is a Makeup Artist, Skin Expert, a Singer and a Preachers Kid. (I added PK to her list of skills because having the right foundation is beyond skin deep.) Upon her return to the studio, we discuss answered prayers to marry, start new businesses, enhance new talents and she helps me discuss my long delayed conversation of divorce. Together we dive into relationships; with God and with our husbands, and evaluate ourselves as wives.
A few months ago Brandi and I enjoyed drinks and dinner to catch up. Covid had us all in the house so when social butterflies can flutter, we like to spread our wings. Our chat turned into us closing down the restaurant! In that conversation, Brandi mentioned that I needed to talk about my divorce and how awkward it is to just remove photos from social media without an explanation. I still wanted my privacy but I agreed that it needed to be done and here is the conversation that I share with you, with the help of Brandi. She also offers me some dating do’s and don’ts and we discuss our challenges in this new arena.
Sometimes you think that your prayers will lead you to the perfect person but the reality is that we are all broken. May we trust God to equip us with the skills to love others in their brokenness as well as identify and correct our own flaws that are made visible to us. Instead of concealing, I have chose healing. We hope that this message can help in your healing, too.
