Posted: January 17, 2011 in M.WHITE PRODUCTION (MWP)
MY FIRST FILM IS DONE!! WOW!! CHECK IT OUT BELOW!
Emmy Award Winner Martinez White, a 2010 UW-Madison alumnus, in his debut documentary film explores and investigates diversity efforts & Black students’ experiences on the BIG TEN University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Through objective interviews complimented by a subjective storyline, the filmmaker gives the audience a personal peak into his internal thought processes as a Black Badger on the UW campus. This film takes a profound approach to determining how students of color’s experiences on campus and in the classroom impacts their academic performance and feelings of inclusion being college students at a PWI and the implications those feelings have for the quality of the higher education system in the United States.
Through 15 convincing student interviews from Black & White students and 7 interviews from university administrators, which includes UW’s Dean of Students, Chief Diversity Officer, Teacher Assistants, Professors and Department Chairs, this provocative, yet smart project is sure to spark healthy conversations about diversity on predominantly white campuses across the United States.

I just finished reading this daily scripture from one of my favorite teachers of the word, Joel Osteen. I have been posting a lot of his emails lately, namely because they have been speaking directly to my spirit and have been the wind at my back and the light upon my path! Check this scripture out, which talks about the power of wisdom, understanding and discretion. When I lived in Africa I learned the great significance of understanding. One of the worst experiences to undergo is to have something happen to you, or lack thereof, and not understand the reasoning for its occurrence. I look forward to connecting with you all again soon! Enjoy THE WORD.
“Do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck”
(Proverbs 3:21–22, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
No matter what decisions you may be facing today, God wants to equip you and empower you to make the right choices. Today’s verse tells us that seeking wisdom and discretion brings life and is “an ornament of grace.” How do we seek wisdom and discretion? By making the Word of God a priority. The answer to every situation we face is addressed in God’s Word either directly or by principle. When God’s Word is the final authority in your life, His grace will empower you to live victoriously.
Verses 23 through 26 go on to say, “Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the LORD will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.”
Today, I encourage you to put God’s Word first. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you study. Follow His commands and open the way for His grace to cover you. Let His grace empower you to dwell in safety and rest securely all the days of your life!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father God, thank You for Your Word which is life and health to me. I submit myself to You knowing that You have good things in store for my future. I will hide Your word in my heart so that I can receive Your grace and walk in Your ways. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen

As you know, I get a daily word emailed to me from Joel Osteen, pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. I decided to share this particular one this morning since I know there are many people experiencing discouragement and disappointment in their life now. I hope this is enough to at least get you through the day. Be encouraged!
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE : “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth”(Psalm 34:1, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria:
It’s easy to get focused on what’s wrong in life, what we don’t have, and how big our obstacles are. If we’re not careful, we’ll lose sight of all the good things God has done. We’ll take for granted our family, friends, health and the opportunities God has blessed us with. We’ll get so busy and stressed out that we won’t appreciate the gift of today. What’s happened?
Our perspective has gotten off. Perspective is all about how we see a situation. There’s power in your perspective because you will draw into your life what you constantly meditate on. Business may be slow. The economy may be down. The wrong perspective is, “I’ll never make it. It’s just too much.” The right perspective is, “God is supplying all of my needs. He said He would prosper me even in a desert.”
Today, I encourage you to evaluate your perspective. Choose to lift your eyes to God the Father no matter what is happening in your circumstances. Remember, as you set your perspective in the right direction, your life will follow. When you keep an attitude of faith and expectancy, you open the door for His blessing in every area of your life!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Heavenly Father, I choose to bless You at all times. I declare that You are faithful! I lift my eyes to You because You are the source of my help, strength and joy forevermore. Thank You for leading and guiding me for Your glory. In Jesus’ Name. Amen. — Joel & Victoria Osteen
