Even though this sounds pretty okay right now, and I’m playing at a respectable speed, it’s been a REAL process getting to this moment. So maybe it’s because the banjo is such a new instrument for me, but I really have a hard time memorizing how to play each song I learn. Without fail, each time I learn a new tune, it takes me a very long period playing painstakingly slow to really help my mind remember where my fingers should be moving next. No matter how much I might want to go faster during this period of time…


“For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12 NLT) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

These past few posts I have been talking a lot about praying, and how during this time I feel it is more critical…


To me, choreography is so much bigger than dance! The choreographers I admire the most are the ones who taught me to place no boundaries on what choreography — or dance for that matter — can be. If you’re like “Tula, what in the world do you mean?” Then go check out the amazing work of choreographers like: Okwui Okpokwasili, Big Dance Theater, Raja Feather Kelly, David Neumann, Urban Bush Women, & Contra-Tiempo.

As a younger artist, I fall under the legacy of these choreographers & the work they have created. And similar to these artists, I want to…


This phrase of movement is part of a larger duet that I’ve been working on for a few weeks now. It’s one half of a duet within Testimony, and it’s envisioned for my lovely dancer, Asia Dessert. If you take a look at my past two videos, you can find some of the moves from those videos reworked into this short phrase. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Most importantly, this phrase continues the short series I’ve started on moving prayers. Within my rehearsals, I talk about the characters who dance this duet as spiritually powerful. Their prayers shift atmospheres, and cause things to…


I have been off of social media for quite a while now. I’ve been using the extra time to check on my self & make sure my mind is sane during these grieving times. Something that has been on the top of my mind recently is the idea of what am I called to do within the times we’re living in — In addition to fighting for justice and equity in the many ways we know how to, what have I been uniquely created to do. …


Sometimes when the battle comes your way, God is not asking you to fight. Sometimes, He’s just asking you to rest. 2 Chronicles 20:15 says “…Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God’s.” Jesus has been reminding me of this over and over again in this season. He’s been teaching me that there is truly SO much power in knowing that some battles I’m not called to fight, but to rest. To be honest, resting is HARD. Sometimes those battles are so tough, resting is literally…



It’s a season of growth. A time to move forward. A time to not let past hurts or fears of what is to come keep you back from the destiny that Jesus has placed before you. This is the season that God has had me in these past few weeks, and I’m sure I’ll be in this growth season for some time more. One thing I have learnt recently is that growth isn’t always the most comfortable…
