After 6 years of hard work and dedication Pete White has finally expanded his organization to it’s own facility for his beloved team and the wait was long over due!

Pete got his start in training simply training his son self defense in boxing. His sons friends took notice and wanted to dip their hands in it as well. Before you know it Pete had himself a mini camp. Over the years, the sport of Boxing and MMA has grown so much that the amateur levels of the both sports has grown tremendously. Pete’s team kept expanding and pretty soon they got to a level where they wanted to start competing.

This is when Pete wanted to expand his knowledge with not only Boxing but also the other divisions inside of MMA (Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Muay Thai, etc). He started to outsource to various gyms which in some ways made him self a traveling camp. Before long his camp simply grew to large and Pete had to put things together to put his fighters under their own personal roof.

At the time period where Pete was going from gym to gym he took on a role as a mentor. He pushed fighters to excel further in the sports while he also got deeper into the boxing training. Through this journey he was blessed to have the opportunity to meet guys who where highly advanced in different parts of the sport.

All-in-all, the over all energy of the grand opening felt like complete love. Everyone was in great spirits and I see a bright future for Pete White Boxing & MMA. He said his goal is to have a World Champion in both MMA and Boxing. When I asked him what is the most rewarding thing he gets from training young fighters this was his response below

“The best thing is seeing the look on these kids faces when the succeed. When they feel good about themselves. When their parents give them a hug after they win and show them how proud they are of them. When team mates look out for each other like they are stronger bonded then blood relatives.”

He has definitely built a foundation that is built like a family and I was happy to see it in person. He also gives huge credit to his wife Deborah White for handling a lot of the business which gives him a lot more time to behands on with his fighters. We wish you great success in the future Pete and keep pushing these young men to the stars.

How I found love at Love Covenant Life Center

I found myself in Daytona Beach, Fl for Mother’s Day to celebrate with my mother. She is my rock, the first God I knew before I knew God, so I tore the road up to make sure she knew she was appreciated. No gift could replace time spent, but you better believe I had gifts in tow! That Saturday afternoon we attended a concert in the Historic Cypress Park with a Motown theme. My mother saw a lot of her friends from back in the day, she sang and ran her mouth. I just looked in astonishment at the lady who is still smiling and going hard after all of life’s pains. I was happy the concert was able to take her away from the hustle and bustle of waking up every day at 5 am to work two and three jobs. My mother is a hard worker who’s faith never waivers no matter what obstacle she is faced with.

Sunday, Mother’s Day, I woke up to find my mom cleaning up something and praying as usual. She was surprised to find me up so early, but she didn’t know I had plans on going to church with her that morning. My mother is so proud of the woman that I have matured into, the old me would have been tired or occupied. I never made time to slow down and appreciate life’s blessings that I already had, I was so busy chasing the wind. Now each day is a present to me, I enjoy the gift of life more abundantly than before. Anyhow, after trying on several dresses, (my mom, not my daughter nor I) we were out the door and headed to Love Covenant Life Center.

This Church family has been in my mom’s life for some time now, she is a better version of herself because she found herself. Pastor Bobby and first lady Carolyne Mills are active and present in their congregation’s lives, which in turn, keep the members encouraged and faithful. Mother Mills and my mother are the saved Thelma and Louise and I am proud of those two virtuous women. On this Sunday we celebrated their roles in our lives as mothers, leaders and role models. Sister Chelsea opened the service with prayer and worship and then Pastor Mills closed it up with such a heartfelt sermon.

Pastor Mills spoke from the book of 1 Corinthians chapter 13 verses 4-7 about the gift of love. You see we may love our spouses, our family, and our pets, but there’s nothing like a mother’s love. A Mother’s love is without limitations. Verse 4 reads, “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, love is not puffed up;” We as humans love with conditions and want others to forgive us as God would, when we’re not willing to do the same. A mother understands with raising children, you have to forgive without sparing the lesson. A mother has many sleepless nights and restless days worrying about her children and her mate. Pastor Mills Also referenced Proverbs chapter 31 verses 10-31 which speaks about the virtuous woman who is more precious than rubies, even her children call her blessed. A quote that Pastor Mills used as a honorable affirmation of the woman came from William Golden who said, “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been.” All in all, stand tall virtuous woman.

I was happy God led me to Love Covenant Life Center to spend my Mother’s Day with my virtuous woman. With so many different events going on in Georgia that weekend, Sweet Auburn Spring Fest, Boosie’s Mother’s Day celebration and more, I thought I was missing out on something (there’s that chasing the wind syndrome). I would have been at so many events, but God directed my path, as he always does. If you are in the Daytona Beach, Florida area and you don’t have a church family, this is one family who always welcomes visitors with open arms. The fifth Sunday of May Love Covenant is having fellowship with their congregation from Orlando, FL and Troy, AL. I urge all to attend, their address is 1015 Mason Ave. Daytona Beach, Fl 32114. If you have any question please call me at 386-334-8225, I will direct you to the welcoming committee. No their is no proof that I could give you to make you believe in God, but their is power in belief. My life is my testimony and my words are my story. My beliefs have gotten me this far, never let the world make you loose your’s. Whatever you believe in, keep those values steadfast and close to your heart through Life’s ups and downs.
