Monica Bryant shares the things she can't live without


Monica has been chair of The Family Violence Prevention Workgroup, a local domestic violence taskforce, for the past 17 years. She is the co-founder of the local publication Town Talk Magazine. She says her “pride and joy” are her granddaughter Riyah and her daughters Danika and Kaitisha.


Being on Time

I don’t do late! You may miss something if you show up late. All my life, I’ve always been on time. It’s very important to me. 



I am a belt fanatic. I wear one just about every day, and it doesn’t matter the brand.


DAVID Sunflower Seeds

My go-to snack.


A Newspaper

I like to hold a print copy in my hand. When I travel, I always pick up a local paper. 


LG Tone Bluetooth Neckband Wireless Headphones

I don’t leave home without them.


McDonald’s Sweet Tea 

It’s Southern sweet. I don’t even know why they make unsweet tea. 


Mornings with Jesus Magazine

Inspirational words help get my day started.
