Hey y’all! WELCOME to Twenty two New Things ! I’m Yolanda J, the face behind the brand and honestly, I don’t know where to begin. Hmm, let’s jump into the 411 on me right quick. I’m from the state (born, raised, and paid actually) where “Y’ALL” is the only way to greet people. Yup, that’s right, it’s Alabama lol! I’m just a small-city girl with big dreams and heart. I LOVE A LOT of things but nothing measures up to my love for God, sports, working out, reading, and writing.



The purpose of Twenty two New Things is to build a tribe and promote transparency through words of hope and encouragement, using personal stories and experiences. We all go through trials of tribulations in life and many times they leave us with no other choice but to talk to a trusted confidant. Oftentimes we are relieved when we share our stories of struggles because it helps us to realize that we are not alone, knowing that many people have been in the same predicament and still persevered despite the hurdles in life. Now, I have to admit that being the introvert that I am, I’m a bit nervous about this whole idea of blogging. Because growth certainly does not occur in comfort zones, I must persist and walk in my purpose.

Since the ultimate goal is to build a tribe, with hopes of uplifting and inspiring others, Twenty two New Things is not only about me, it’s about you too. God designed all of us with unique and talented gifts to help each other work in unity in building HIS KINGDOM. So spread the word about Twenty two New Things because we are in this journey we call life together! Oh and don’t hesitate to shoot me a message via email or social media. I would love to meet and connect with you!
