Last week concluded The Book of Corinthian’s virtual book tour and I must say that it was a success! It’s bittersweet that it has come to an end but definitely more sweet than bitter.

Three Times The Love: How Being A Mom Has Made Me Better

When my children’s birthdays come around, I experience rebirth. In the midst of another rebirth experience with Freedom’s birthday approaching on the same day as my book launch, July 11th, I can’t help but reflect on how much motherhood has shaped me and brought me closer to being my authentic self. As I was answering questions for interviews this weekend regarding my book launch, I did some reflecting. One of those questions (paraphrased) was how am I different now that I’m a mother, wife, and author than before these accomplishments. I remembered how when I first found out that I was pregnant with Jarvis Jr. and I felt a bit discouraged because I felt like my life was over as I knew it. I was 22 at the time so I felt like I had a lot of more life to live and experience before having chi...

Heavy Is The Head

One thing that I’ve been extremely grateful for during this stay at home order is creating a new bond with my baby boy Legend. Before Freedom was born, Legend was practically glued to me. I always carried him, we were so close. I talk more about that in a past blog. Of course I thought when I had another baby that I would be able to manage being a mom of three and dividing my time up. I realized that it wouldn’t be so easy just minutes after giving birth to Freedom when I walked over to pick Legend up to let him know that he was still my baby. The nurses quickly told me that I could not lift anything heavier than Freedom. My heart was shattered that I wouldn’t be able to pick Legend up for a while. Then later I would experience extreme mommy guilt when I started working three weeks after ...

The Gift

A few weeks ago I went to the post office with a lot of packages to ship out from orders from my online shop. I had so many that I had to put them in a bag to hold them all. The line was long and I was waiting for what seemed like forever. I could have easily complained about the time that it took to get to the front of the line but instead I thought of the days when I prayed to have multiple orders to ship. Same with now. I can either complain about having more time at home or be grateful for more time with my family, more time to take care of my mental health, and more time to tune in to my gifts. When I choose the latter and shift to a place of gratitude, I am able to see the gift in everything. By the time that I got to the front of the line I asked to buy 20 stamps. I wanted them to ...

Lessons in Art Class: Self-Love Is The Best Love

Yesterday was the calendar holiday Valentine’s Day. Some of my students celebrated this on Thursday since the students were out of school on that Friday. I watched in the hallway as students passed out gifts to their friends, boyfriends, and girlfriends with excitement. I also noticed that some of my students were empty handed and some were even sad. Fortunately, I had a lesson plan for the day that wasn’t typical for Valentine’s Day that also tied into black history month. Before I could introduce the lesson to my 3rd period 8th grade students, I felt a heavy wave of sadness flood the room. Before we meditated I asked, “How are we feeling today” as I could feel tension coming from the right side of the room. KeKe spoke up, “I’m not having a good day! I didn’t get anything for Valentine’s...
The Importance of My Morning Routine

The Importance of My Morning Routine

Honoring my morning routine is one of the most beneficial ways that I practice self-care. As a mom of three children, wife, teacher, business owner, and artist my plate is full. That's cool because I love to eat; however in order to show up and be present for my family, students, and clients, I have to wake up early in the morning before every one else does. If I don't, I find myself irritable within a few hours of waking up. In some seasons I'm super strict about my morning routine. I have to meditate, pray, read, journal, burn sage, light my candles, etc. Other times I may just paint or really focus on a cleaning tasks which are both forms of meditation because I'm able to be present in the moment. Some times I'll wake up and just sit down and talk to God and write the messages that I re...

Why I Choose To Celebrate the New Year in the Spring

The winter brings about a time of reflection, moments to rest, and actions geared towards preparation for the spring. Naturally when I'm doing my reflections around this time on how far I've come, I'm also able to note what goals I still want to accomplish, plans I want to put in motion, and habits that I want to adapt. I feel hopeful, exited, and then somewhat anxious because I'm reminded that the calendar marks the start of a new year January 1st and I'm not quite where I think I "should" be. In doing my self-care rituals, spending time in meditation, and being grateful for all that God has done in my life thus far I'm reminded that spring marks the true beginning of the new year. This is when all of the zodiac signs complete their cycle and everything turns green becoming alive again. A...

What Breastfeeding Has Taught Me About Self-Care

As I reflect on finishing my first semester as a middle school teacher, I note that one of my greatest accomplishments is maintaining my breast milk supply for my baby girl. This isn't my first breastfeeding journey having breastfed Jarvis Jr for 14 months and pumped milk for Legend for 4 months, but I can honestly say that "the third time is a charm". Freedom and I have the breastfeeding relationship that my heart desires and despite me going to work three weeks after her birth, we are still going strong. While I've been providing all of Freedom's nutritional needs with my milk supply, this experience has provided me with new insight in regards to self-care. One of my intentions this year was to be more selfless. With everything that went on with my family this year, breastfeeding brou...

Day 1 of Self-Care: Confidence Through Nail Art

I started going to the nail shop to get my nails done religiously every two weeks back when I was in the 9th grade. Some time shortly after that I started getting pedicures too and then soon eyebrow waxes followed. Each trip I would get new color schemes most times with designs. This became “my thing” that manifested into one of my favorite acts of “self-care” back before the term became trendy. I carried this with me to college even when times got hard. If I had to work extra shifts, sell some of my clothes on eBay, or pick up another side job, I was going to find my way to the nail shop. When I started my motherhood journey 5 years ago I completely stopped getting my nails done. I felt like I didn’t have extra time to go to the nail shop. I figured that any extra money that I had need...

Better Together

Jarvis and I went on a date this weekend; not just any date, we went to Walmart. We had a gracious offer for baby sitting our three children and an opportunity to get out for a few hours. Instead we both fell asleep taking mid day naps that we seldom get to do. We woke up and realized that we didn’t have enough time left to go “out” and that we still needed to make our store run for the week. We decided to turn our store run into a date. I was excited considering the fact I missed my man. Yeah we spend time together every day but that time is shared between Jarvis Jr., Legend, Freedom, and the 164 students that I still think about when I clock out and go home in the evenings. As we were heading out to the store, Jarvis said something to me like, “I’m good with whatever we do as long as I’m...

Birthing Freedom

I'm super excited about the second half of this year! Every July for the past 9 years has been a pivotal month for my evolution on my journey towards freedom. Around this time in 2010, I was preparing to leave Louisiana to go to college. This is also when I started my spiritual journey awakening to my desire for freedom. The two summers that followed bought big changes for me with traveling, internships, and gaining independence getting my first apartments. In July of 2013 I started my journey with holistic health and I met my soulmate for the second time who is now my husband. In July of 2014 I started my career post college graduation. The July that followed I changed jobs while adjusting to being a first time mommy. In July of 2016 I earned a certificate and a promotion. This time was...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #17: Delayed, Denied, or Divine?

Legend had a great month in May! He's gaining weight, growing taller, and controlling his episodes better when he throws up and struggles to breath. He has a new care team. He's been doing great in therapy exceeding the expectations that his old company had set for him. He's more alert and becoming increasingly active each passing day. He's showing up everyday and letting us know that God is still in control. We got good news a few days ago about his insurance and are on track to get a new team of specialist and additional therapy. A day after the good news we ran into a new stumbling block, but I know we will get through it. It's already being worked out for the good. I have a new alternative remedy that we will be trying this month too. As I look back over Legend’s life, I'm constantl...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #16: Run

I pulled up to Jr.'s school on Friday. I asked him if he was going to have a good day. He said yes. There was no hesitation, tears, or hints of fear in his voice. He said, "I'm not going to cry at nap time today because you always come back to get me." As many times as Jarvis Sr. And I have reassured Jr. that one of us will always pick him up from school and that we will never leave him, this is the day that it finally clicked for him. When we walked to his class out on the playground, he ran away to go play without telling me bye. His teachers were elated too to see his enthusiasm. I waved and walked away with the reminder from above that as I too leave my comfort zone and run through the doors that have already opened for me, God will always be there for me and will never leave me.

Featured Painting: “Agony”

Agony: Extreme physical or mental suffering I painted this a few days after I painted Visions of Freedom . This was during a trying time for me. This was also my first day of "Sober September" when I made a conscious decision to let go of a habit that didn't serve me anymore. It was tough. I was struggling with other situations as well at the time. I knew I had two choices. I could allow everything that I was going through break me, which would have been easy. Or I could allow it to build me. I chose the latter and journeyed through the process. In some of the religions that I'm familiar with, suffering is a part of the human experience that leads to a spiritual awakening. That awakening is followed by a great reward. In the Bible for example, men like Job, Joseph, Daniel, Saul and the I...

Caregiving as a Mother

Never in a million years did I expect my son to have complications with his health and have developmental delays. However I can say that I was prepared that this would be a different ride from what I was use to dating back to his time in the womb. The featured image is titled "Differences". I painted it while I was 5 months pregnant with Legend. I could feel that he would be unique to the point that I would cry because I just couldn't explain what I felt to anyone. I still can't explain it to this day. Its a conversation only understood between me and God, just like this painting full of healing energy is. I remember when Legend got discharged from the hospital back in December. The nurses gave us all of this equipment and a quick tutorial on how to use it for Legend to feed through a NG ...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #14: Wound Care

Back in March when Legend had his g-button placement surgery we were instructed to clean it once a day and that it would heal in eight weeks. To my dismay when we went to the eight week checkup we learned that granulation (extra tissue) had formed around the site and it didn't look so great. It needed to be treated to get rid of it. It turned out that simply cleaning the g-button site once a day and waiting for time to pass wasn't enough to ensure optimal healing. While granulation tissue forming at the site is normal, it's not ideal and does need attention to keep from worsening. The nurse gave us two options to treat the excess tissue. One was to apply Granulotion four times a day for four days at a time until it was completely gone. The other option was to apply silver nitrate once to "...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #13: Carrying Grace

I've been carrying Legend for almost 2 years now. First in my womb and now in my arms. I use to carry him everywhere in a carrier before he got a g-button placed in his stomach. In the womb, he was unable to sustain his own life so I did all that I could to provide him with a healthy temporary home in there. Now he's unable to sit up independently, crawl, or walk yet so I carry him as often as I can to make sure that he's supported and gets around. This reminded me that God does the exact same thing for me by carrying me when I'm unable to carry myself which is really all of the time. I actually talk more about this in a previous blog, My Soul Teacher Lesson #4: The Carrier . Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the tim...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #12: Jr. The Artist

It had been a long week spent in the hospital with Legend back in March after the doctors diagnosed him with lysosomal storage disease (which has changed since then, thank God.) We were all exhausted, stressed, and ready to go home. I had asked the Child Life Specialist to come in to speak with Jr. and to do some activities with him that would help him cope. I could imagine that it had to be challenging for him to be back and forth between the hospital and home with Daddy at night when I stayed with Legend. The Child Life Specialist left him some toys and a few other things after they were done with their activities. Among those things was a notebook and markers. When it was just me, Jarvis, Jarvis Jr. and Legend left in the room, Jr. began to draw on some of the sheets of paper. He made...

Spring is here, my favorite time of the year! I'm excited about this new month, "Abundant April" and all of the possibilities and opportunities that it holds. I can feel this powerful new moon in Aries in full effect and I'm taking full advantage of the productive and creative energies that it is bringing. The past 6 months have been challenging for me with learning of my new pregnancy, reality setting in that I would soon be a mother of 2 under age 2, my baby boy's recent diagnosis of a life threatening illness, having to rebuild myself once again after another battle with depression, and just trying to create balance while staying on top of things. While challenging it has been, my faith has also grown. I've become stronger, I've learned to ask for and receive help, and I've become a bet...
Tips For Managing Depression

Tips For Managing Depression

One thing I’ve learned through battling depression over the years is acceptance. Instead off resisting what I’m feeling or going through, I’ve become intentional in accepting what is going on in the present and using that awareness to create change. I’ve shared some of my experiences with depression on the blog in past posts, one in particular being Managing Postpartum Depression . Here recently this winter when I slowed down with posting new blogs I went through depression again. Some of it was due to the season changing, balancing my new pregnancy with baby #3, and the challenges that came with the changes in Legend’s health. My mental state is much better now and I’ve compiled a list of some tips that have helped me on this journey. Reading Taking a few minutes to read something posit...

The Plug

Here lately I've developed this poor habit of falling asleep without putting my phone on the charger. When I start the next day my phone is already in the yellow zone or sometimes on red signaling that it needs to be charged as soon as possible. I start the cycle of putting my phone on the charger for a little bit and then I take it off when I need to use it. I sit the phone down and do something else. I get another low battery notification and I repeat this same cycle. My phone never fully charges and sometimes it dies completely if I'm out and about. There are instances where I want to just pick up my phone and read an ebook for 30 minutes or listen to a full album. Sometimes these moments can't happen because I need to have my phone on the charger to do so. If I would have charged my ph...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #11: Rest

Legend has been in the hospital since his surgery on Monday. I've been by his bedside since then with the exception of leaving my husband and oldest son with him to go to the store to get a few things one evening. Neither of us have been getting much sleep, especially since his diagnosis. The nurses and techs have constantly been in and out drawing blood to run more tests trying to slowly bring his electrolyte levels back down. It's been frustrating to say the absolute least. It's been harder on Legend because he's the one that has been having to endure the sticks and pricks. Every time the nurses and techs would get done, I would try to rock him back to sleep and put him in the crib. About 20 minutes later he'd wake up voluntarily or involuntarily because another professional was coming i...

What if You’re the Toxic One?

With self-love, self-care, and protecting your peace being the new trends, I see a lot of posts on social media about cutting people off as soon as you notice toxic traits about them. While there can be some truth in this tidbit of wisdom, there is also some soul searching that can be done when you identify toxic traits in someone. Soul searching? But how and why? I'm glad you asked! You can begin by checking yourself. Ultimately we are all mirrors, we can see our own reflection in others. Basically the way we view others is the way that we view ourselves either consciously or subconsciously. Ouch! That's a thick pill to swallow. The truth is like that sometimes though. Everything that we deem as bad isn't always "bad". That person that keeps showing up in our lives that's angry, bitter, o...

What Happened When I Stopped Eating Dairy

Every since I can remember, I've always hated milk. Hate is such a strong word that I try not to use often but this is how strongly I felt about the taste of milk. I remember getting teased in kindergarten for not drinking milk like the other kids in class. Thankfully, my parents never forced me to drink it despite the claims and advice that I needed it for strong bones and teeth. Maybe just maybe I was on to something back then but the world around me just didn't respond well to my attitude towards milk. Now it's more common for people to say that they have a dairy allergy. It's even more common for children to refuse milk and it's socially acceptable. There are many milk alternatives readily available in just about every store now. While I could never drink a full cup of milk, I did f...

What Happened When I Stopped Eating Meat

Around the summer of 2016, I started my journey with eliminating meat from my diet. I knew one that I would "go vegan" I just didn't know how soon it would happen for me. First, I eliminated beef by eating more ground turkey. Next, I cut pork and started eating more chicken. By the end of that year I had cut chicken and turkey. I was eating more fish. I was now a full blown pescatarian, if you must give it a name. Pescatarians abstain from eating any meat with the exception of fish. With this new diet, I had been seeing major changes. I was confident that soon I would be done with fish too to see more of a transformation. In February 2017 when I went back to Louisiana, I went backwards with my eating habits. I started back eating the fried chicken that I once loved so much. I noticed that ...

Last year I packed up a U-haul along with my family and started my whole life over. The life that I had put in work to achieve. I had a great job with salary pay and benefits. I had just earned a promotion and a certificate in Contract Management. I was even winning awards in my professional organization, Toastmasters. Shout out to my time in Toastmasters and all of the amazing people that I met by the way. That experience helped me get back comfortable doing public speaking which also led to me finding my voice again. On top of these things, my husband and I both had cars parked outside of our nice rental home that had more rooms than we needed. Yet still packing up that U-haul was the best decision that we could have ever made. My Higher Self was calling me to do more, calling me to do s...

A Breast Cancer Love Story: Meet Survivor and Healer, Kristen “Nikki” Cook

My name is Kristen Nicolette Cook, my friends and family call me Nikki. From a very young age, I knew exactly what I wanted out of life. I mapped out my life including where I would attend college, the courses I would take, the degree I would obtain, my career after graduation, and even when I expected to meet my husband. I did this while in 6th grade and from that day on, I tried my best to go according to the plan. I’m pretty sure I heard God laugh a time or two. Deviating from this ideal plan, I ended up attending several colleges including Baylor University and Texas State University after graduating high school back in 2010. During my time at Texas State University, I donated a kidney to my aunt and gave birth to my precious, lively little girl, my sweet Olivia. While attending Lamar ...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #10: They That Wait

I had just finished my morning prayer, meditation, and reading. I picked up my phone and had received this encouraging message from a dear friend of mine. She wishes to remain anonymous, however, I will say that she is a devoted wife, mother of two, daughter, sister, and friend. Most of all she loves God and is beautiful both inside and out. I value her insight, plus she gave me permission to share. Here goes: "My son is funny to me. Whenever he wants to watch Sesame Street, he climbs into MY bed, pulls the covers over his legs, and reclines on the pillows. He then says, “I'm ready mommy.” He basically assumes the position and expects mommy to deliver. He’s intelligent because he knows to come to mommy instead of daddy. He knows the position he’s suppose to be in to watch the show. In s...
