The Unauthorized Ma’at Tell All

By Lana Moline

I have been a part of this wonderful family at Black Love and Marriage for a couple years now.  Through all the interactions all across the globe, I have learned to love stronger and purpose to live a life full of intentional joy.  You’ve heard them say it “Be Intentional – Stop Playing, Start Pushing” and I admit that I need the straight talk that they always bring.  When I sat down to update my blog it occurred to me that although they are truly an open book, there are some things that The Ma’ats have not said and I am here to tell it all – right here, right now.
Of course that is just for effect but I what I do want to share is the fact that they are examples of what they speak.  It is not easy to encourage and motivate couples, singles, mothers, fathers and families all while maintaining your own.  Please understand that whenever anyone attempts to guide others in motivation, opposition comes.  Yet they stand together, united, hand in hand with their kids in an effort to help both you and I be all that we can be to and with our families.  Yes, I am telling it all today.
I know that one time, they reached out to a wife and mother of 3 who was overwhelmed because of all the hats that she wore and through the grace of God encouraged her to continue to give beyond the point where she thought she had nothing left to give.  I know for a fact that this one time they offered to walk with a couple who decided that they were throwing in the towel and they walked and walked and walked with that couple until they saw the reemergence of hope.  I can’t say for sure but I heard that one day they gave their last to someone who they understood needed it more.  Also, I got on good authority that many of the stories they tell and many of the examples they present are fruit of their experiences in their own relationship.  Yes, that is what I heard.
I heard that they offer their hurt and sorrow to God and allow Him to use it to bless others.  I even saw them on television and guess what – there were saying the same thing.  Sure, my news may not exactly be scandalous but it is extremely important.  Every day thousands of us log in to receive doses of inspiration and for that we are extremely grateful.  I am personally honored to be a part of the team and pray continued success.  This was not their attempt to blow their own horns but I wanted each of us whose lives they have touched to take a moment to comment below.
