I'm on a mission to free people to be true to who they really are and to unleash their buried voices within. "Ain't Gonna Be No Stupid" is inspired by birthday verse, Proverbs 7:4, "Say to wisdom, “I love you,” and to understanding, “You’re my sweetheart.” We discuss stupid "situationships", "tolerationships" leading to "revelationships". What may appear wise in the world's eyes is really just foolishness. Our discussions may expose our own foolishness but in doing so, it may bridge that great divide and UNITE.
