What You Need to Know:

Turning 65 is a time of adjustments and decisions. One critical decision is signing up for Medicare coverage for healthcare and choosing what’s suitable for you.

You will make your options much more accessible and reduce your stress around enrollment if you start doing your homework at least three to six months before enrolling. Just remember that Medicare enrollment is not optional or automatic. You must sign up, even if you are not retiring until you are 66 or older. You can enroll three months before your birthday or up to three months after, but there are financial penalties if you don’t sign up on time. (READ MORE)

Dexter Reed Jr., a 26-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by police at a traffic stop in Chicago, Illinois on March 21. Authorities claim Reed fired first. Released body camera footage showed several officers returning a total of 96 gunshots in 41 seconds. A police officer was also shot.

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) is investigating the shooting and believes there are many unknown factors involving the officers’ conduct, including why Chicago police stopped Reed in the first place and why a tactical team conducted the traffic stop for a seatbelt violation. Chicago Police Superintendent Larry Snelling said the officers will keep their police powers.

5. The Armor of God

The Armor of God



What You Need to Know:


What does the ARMOR OF GOD mean?  It represents the defense we must take in our spiritual lives to ward off the attacks of Satan, the Devil, or the Enemy, whatever you want to call him. Now, since he is not of flesh and blood (even though he may use people to do his dirty work), we have to use non-tangible items to do battle with him. Ephesians 6:12 reads, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”


There are seven parts to the non-tangible Armor Of God.


1.  The Breastplate of Righteousness

2. The Gospel of Peace.  

3. The Shield of Faith.  

4. The Helmet of Salvation.  

5. The Sword of The Spirit.  

6. Prayer.  

7.  The Belt of Truth.
