Let Their Voices Be Heard- My Interview with Temi of Christian Mommas Part 4

This post is perfect for this day. Are you transferring trauma to your children? Why is it difficult for African-Americans to “get over it!”? How is trauma transferred from one generation to another? I addressed these questions in my 4th blog series with papa Matt. Please watch this video, read the post, and let us hear your thoughts. Our children deserve only the best from us. Be blessed! 🙏❤

I am so thankful that Temi has done this interview series with me. I admire her for how much she has overcome and accomplished.

This is part 4 of my interview with Temi of christianmommas.com. In Part 1 she shared about experiencing discrimination. In Part 2 she shared about hardships as an international student.

How I Break Depression

Motherhood is a joyful experience and life is beautiful. Yet...... Sometimes, I have a heavy heart. Sometimes, I can feel thick clouds of darkness. Sometimes, it feels like there is a weight on me.

Ghosts in the Nursery

We all expect the mother of a newborn to be happy, we expect mothers to not abuse their children, and we always assume mothers will form a healthy bond with their child. Sadly, this isn't always the case. Some moms struggle with bonding, are depressed, and feel like someone else will be better off mothering their child. Some moms just seem to fail despite telling themselves, "I want something better for my child" or "I don't want my child to experience what I experienced as a child". We are always quick to judge these mothers because we don't know their stories.....

How Early Childhood Experiences Shaped My Personality and Parenting Style

I grew up being a perfectionist, often times to avoid criticism from within the family. As an adult it carried over to my everyday life. Its caused problems in my workplace and relationships. Which carried over into areas of uncertainty in the form of self-doubt. I sought out affirmations from everyone and anyone.....

Ghosts in our Marriage

Isn’t it sad that history repeats itself even when we say “I will never do that” or “I want something better for me and my children”? Why do most people who watched their parents fight constantly; watched their father get drunk and abused their mother; and noticed their mother or father obsessively control the home repeat the same thing. Why do they repeat their history of trauma despite desiring something better?

The Mind, The Battlefield

I had a dream last night that I feel impressed to share. In my dream I was walking around the city. With each store I passed, my mind was being invaded with thoughts. Thoughts of hopelessness, disappointment, anxiety, insecurity, there wasn’t anything off limits. My mind was filled with thoughts of death, thoughts of affair,…

Postpartum Problems 2

My Mother Loved Me but I Didn’t Know Until Now

My sudden awakening to the love of my mother has brought me wholeness and has given me the closure I needed. I encourage every orphan and anyone who was abandoned by a parent to reflect on the love that 'perhaps' existed. Reflect on the times you shared, the moments you remember, and let your heart feel love.
