You May See Imperfection But I Am One of God's Masterpiece

Written By: Felecia Causey Photography: Felecia Causey Model: Tonia Bibb Rivers We live i n a world where everyone have standards of what a woman should look like. People have their opinions on what makes the ideal lady. Some will think you are to tall or to short, your hair is to nappy or short, your skin is to dark, you're too fat, your breast is  too big or not big enough.  With celebrities bodies set as the standards of what all women should look like, the fight to keep up can be out of control. The world and internet will always find some imperfection or flaw that does not make her perfect. The imperfections and her being different is what makes her an unique individual. I think all women are beautiful. Women are judged in seconds of their value just by their appearance. Every lady may not have long model legs or celebrities' perky breasts, but we have the fight of a lion and the courage of a mother bear.     Everyday as women watch t

Don't Talk Trash To People's Kids During A Game

Written By: Felecia Causey Models: Mom: E'licia Allen Daughter: Jelicia Anderson As any parent being protective over your child/children is one of your top objective.  There are so many adults that sometimes forget at games that these are kids, on the court or field.  It's very annoying to hear an adult on the sideline constantly hackling there own child, but it's really a disgrace when you harass and shout negative things to someone else's child.  It's a line as an adult with common courtesy that should not be crossed. If the child is a cheerleader, basketball player, or football player, that may not perform up to your standards, but you should never get so out of control that it's becoming disrespectful.  Although many who portray this behavior, may not see any harm in doing this , but it's very disgusting.  Sports are suppose to be fun and a family oriented experience, not a riot from adults that suppose to be a role model. Regardless, if he

I Will Not Let Sickle Cell Control Me

My name is Michael Christian and I have sickle cell anemia. I am 21 years old and I was diagnosed with the illness when I was born on June 28, 1998. Sickle Cell anemia is a battle and it took me a while to figure out what this disease can do to me. I had dreams to become something and others had doubts that I am capable to do anything because I have this disease. Every since a little child, I been told that I could not do this or could not achieve that, that my disease would hold me back and I cannot lie that it did not hold me back. When my flare up comes unexpectedly I start to agree that yeah I cannot do anything. Those times when I get sick and admitted into the hospital I feel like my life was going downhill, and that I will never be anything that I set out to be. It was going to keep me from everything and as a child, you give up easier and you care less about things. Sickle cell can put you into a depression that is unimaginable, and it will make you want to give up on every

Love Hard and Forgive Fast

Written By: Felecia Causey Photography By: Felecia Causey Models Are Sisters: Shantasia Lewis and Yvette Brooks Families are being destroyed all the time. It's so much pain and hurt that goes on ,but the disagreements and misunderstandings are never discussed.  This causes grudges to be held for years. Most times when there is a wedge between family members, there is also separation and no communication.  What causes so much rivalry amongst siblings, cousins, aunts, grandparents,  and parents?  Family members can be in such competition with each other because of a generational thing. Many will become so distracted on what the other have that it consumes their love for one another.  Siblings sometimes fall out because of just a small thing, and then show up at events and not even speak.  They will allow a childish and selfish thing to take away the enjoyment of family time. People shun themselves from their family, because of feeling like the black

Grandparents Love Your Grandkids Equally

Written By: Felecia Causey Photography By: Felecia Causey Models: Elanda Sankey-Patterson Grandkids: Kaden and Kailee Most soon to be grandparents are very excited to welcome the new addition into their family. I mean really, who doesn't like sweet babies?  They usually spend a ton of money trying to help the parents prepare for his or her arrival.  The strict parents some of us once knew have turned soft, and the grandkids have them wrapped around their fingers. Unfortunately, all children don't receive this love that is so special to many. I am not sure how someone can mistreat a child that has the same blood as them. There are many reasons such as not liking one of the parents, the color of their skin, and many other ridiculous whys.   An innocent child should not be involved in adults conflicts. There shouldn't be any grandparent that wants to mistreat or disregard a child, that will one day realize that he or she didn't want to be a p

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
