Interview with Jennifer Pfautch Hardwick on Mental Health and Self Care

Jae, thank you so much for being on my blog. Please tell my readers and myself who is the woman that speaks the truth(You) is ? Hi Felecia! Thanks for thinking of me for your blog. The me you see on IG is pretty much the me you’d get if you were my BFF. I am a Mother, a wife, a sister, daughter, friend, an advocate, and a gloriously imperfect human!  I’m passionate about helping others (women especially) to learn and live in their authentic self, their unique brilliance if you will. Honoring and living in our genuine self (who God made, not who society has tried to convince us to be) is where our power lies.  **What inspires you for most of these quotes or saying that I see on your Instagram? Either personal experience or the personal experience of those close to me. I share them because, all too often each of us feel like we’re the only one going through something or feeling a particular way, and that’s just not true. We’re all more

I Am Not My Hair

Written By: Felecia Causey Photography By:Felecia Causey Model/Featured: Quintasia I came across this young lady's story on her mom's Facebook page, and I knew instantly I wanted to share her story on my blog. I could imagine the emotions that her and her mother went through. They had to come against this new struggle and fight for something that’s very important to a woman and a young girl. In a place where how you look is very important. Most women feel like their hair is everything. We live in a country where billions of dollars are being used on hair products, hair services and more. When this young lady thought it was just a piece of hair coming and didn’t understand what was going on I’m sure she was scared and confused. Then a mother sees and does not instantly know what is going on. I'm sure she instantly becomes frightened of what she has to do for her daughter. After the visit to a specialist, they diagnosed that she has alopecia. As any mother her first thought w

NICU Story: What We Didn't Know We Needed

Written By: Alyssa Daniels Photography By: Felecia Causey Photos Provided By: Alyssa Daniels My son was born at 29 weeks. I had two healthy pregnancies before that. The day he was born I was with my older two children doing their online therapies. I went to the bathroom where I had a little bleeding. I called my doctor where I was told to come get checked out. Of course, I wasn’t in pain, so I decided to get my children together and make plans for them and then my husband who was in the academy came home on his lunch break to take me to the hospital. We got up the stairs and the nurse checked me out where she said I was in labor, and the baby was coming “today”. I immediately started to cry and ask for a second opinion. The second nurse came in and said we have to get you to labor and delivery now, I can see his head. From that moment until he came out was 9 mins. He was diagnosed with a bpd and under-developed lungs. He stayed in the NICU for over 3 months, and he had to go home on ox

Yes, You Can Be a Princess

  Photography By:Felecia Causey Written By: Felecia Causey Thanks so much to all the beautiful little princess and their parents!! In a world where the color of someone’s skin plays a major role in something as simple as a fictional character. Growing up I never cared about the beautiful princesses' ethnicity because it didn’t matter. As many of us as children we enjoyed the singing, the dancing, and the lesson from the movies .  We didn’t care if the character was pink, blue, red, black, white, or green because that’s not what we saw first. Recently I found out one of my favorite cartoons, The Little Mermaid, will be shown in live action, and instantly the child in me became super excited.  I was happy that one of my childhood favorites movies, I would be able to watch it with my daughter.  As the reveal of the casted mermaid and the preview trailer came out, the ugly behavior of people both old and young had social media and the web roaring with hateful backlash.  As I watch thes

My Story of The Tiniest Fighter

Written By: Janna Hayes Photos Also Provided By: Janna Hayes Photography By: Felecia Causey For years I have prayed and prayed for a baby. Was told by multiple doctors that I needed fertility treatments for it to happen. Negative test after negative test. Nothing was working. But then, on November 25, 2020, I saw a positive for the first time. A week later on December 2nd I went to my first appointment where I found out it wasn’t a false positive, but what would soon be my greatest love was forming. I was told that day that I was 6 weeks along and my due date is July 28, 2021. I could not wait to find out what my little nugget was, so I did an early blood test. On December 30,2020 I got the results that I would be having a baby boy! Fast forward to February 18, 2021, my anatomy scan. This day confirmed he was indeed a boy! My OBGYN then saw something that was concerning, something with his bowel. She said it was a soft marker for Down syndrome. No big deal, I have prayed so much for hi

Teaching Your Kids How to Treat Kids That Look Different

Model: DuRiyah Foster-Smith   I wanted this precious girl to feel like a princess at her photoshoot, and she loved it. It breaks my heart to hear and see stories from parents on how their child was mistreated, left out, bullied, and ignored because they were different.  As a mother of two kids, I work every day to try to protect my kids both physically and mentally. There isn’t any good parent that wants their child to physically and emotionally be hurt. Most times we have to be their voice and their advocate. We must start teaching kids how to treat people. It starts at home, showing them that they must treat people the way they want to be treated.  Kids are such extraordinary individuals, and they observe everything. If they are curious or not familiar with something, they will ask questions.  It’s up to us parents to be there, to show them the right thing. As parents before kids go to school it’s important that you tell and show them that kids are different. With a world full of div
