It’s the 4th of the New Year already. We are surrounded by such pain and suffering. Wishing we had bought what it feels like those left behind in 2021 with us hand in hand into the New Year. Breathing in the tears, fears, and those who we held dear. But He said stop holding your breath. Breathe out my child, release the pain, say His name. His tears are like the rain, He cares for you too. Look up. See your name?
You’re free, He is the key. Bent in agony for all to see His blood saved you so we could be new, as He flew in the spirit He left a piece of Himself just for you, don’t be blue. If you belong to Him it’s written; your Happy ending; favor and blessings.
You have the King’s heart and that’s all you need to start. He never left you, time to turn the page. You are bound in His joy He will show you which way to go and lift up your soul. He told me to tell you 2022 brings His peace. And He saves those in the most secret of places. Now it’s time to do what He has told you to do. Push through there is more for you to do!
Having your kids fully present and excited for Christmas takes it to a whole nother level! I don’t think I’ve ever seen them this excited all year! 6, 4, and 2 are the perfect ages for a fully present Christmas & the best part of it all was feeling their joy, it was every bit that more contagious!
Maybe that’s how Jesus felt when He witnessed us walking more self-assured in discerning our worth. Recognize this every time you have a moment of self doubt: YOU were to die for!! YOU were so precious in His eyes He died just for you.
This is not just some stamp on another Happy Holiday it is HIS day that we get to remember He changed His true form to come into the earth and show us just how much we were really worth to Him. As you witness Christmas from your children’s eyes remember that same love you’re feeling today for them your Father’s love for you. Its just that much and more…

Ladies…I know that we wake up unaware of how powerful we actually are. We are the gatekeepers to our homes…the enemy will attack you before your husband or your children because he knows if he can pull down our minds and wrap us around in the belief we are of no value or worth, our voices are irrelevant that he can pull down it all….let’s take back our power and crush the head of the serpent. We our daughters of the most High. Cover your families in prayer each morning…cause we don’t come to play and every time you get in your feelings remember this battle is spiritual. Arm yourselves!!!

Keep your supply up with these natural remedies. I was able to avoid having to pump and breastfeed for up to 18 months by intentionally using these remedies within my day. Use it as a tea, in a smoothie, or sprinkle over your food when cooking. I am not a doctor or certified practitioner. Just sharing my personal experiences of what has worked best for me. As always please consult a herbalist or holistic doctor who is trained in herbs/ natural remedies.
Chayote: is used in the Carribbean culture to help produce breast milk and is packed full with vitamins & minerals. – While pregnant this squash like fruit helps maintain a healthy blood pressure from the potassium & helps clean the blood. – The folic acid helps prevent birth defects and birth weight. – Vitamin K helps to clot the blood. This is very important during labor. – Vitamin C is great for the immune system.
Brewer’s Yeast: I would add this to my smoothies or add it in some warm milk with vanilla. It not only helps produce milk but makes you feel more energized. As a new mom it’d hard finding things to combat that tired feeling. – Helps balance blood sugar levels – Regulates those roller coaster hormones and is a natural immune booster for you and baby – – Has vitamins high in iron, b6, b12, zinc, and chromium.
Alfalfa: best used as a dry herb form not raw. This herb in small amounts when sprinkled on to food or added to a smoothie in powder form is a known superfood and has been used for breastfeeding moms for centuries. – It has high amounts of vitamin K – Helps with overall digestion – Reduces inflammation – Helps maintain healthy blood sugar & pressure. Don’t over do it with this one being that it can cause diarrhea in large amounts. A little goes a long way when used in moderation.

Fun fact: Haitians eat Spaghetti for breakfast lol…first thing in the morning my dad would make us Spaghetti with leftovers…it could be fish, greens, chicken and it always brings back memories of being home with them. So I decided to add a spin to a traditional favorite dish and make it vegan! Plaintains, calalou, spaghetti made with tomato paste, and avocado with arugula. This was soo good!
Not sure bout yall but it’s definitely get sick season for children at their schools and daycare. Our kids had gotten sick with Hand Foot and Mouth and we were able to come to the table fully prepped and ready! One thing I love about homeopathy is it’s not one size shoe fits all, each remedy is catered to their physical and emotional state. With the cold approaching this is how were fighting back against sickness. Here are some of our household favs
1. Belladonna – For Managing Sore Throat I use Belladonna as a remedy for sore throat. I use it to reduce fevers for the kids or when they complain of feeling pain, dryness, or soreness in the throat.
2. Hepar Sulph – For sore throat when it feels painful and raw and hurts to swallow..relieves sores in the mouth from hand foot and mouth and is generally used when you feel like the soreness or pain is radiating all the way to your ears. If you feel mucus in the back of your throat when you swallow this will also help relieve the discomfort and expel mucus
3. Borax – When canker sores occur from HFM this relieves the irritation and discomfort.
4. Sea Moss – This is a two thousand year old remedy that was used all over the world native to the Carribbean and Ireland that was gathered as a means of immunity against infections and inflammation. With 92 out of 110 vitamins and minerals we need sea moss is the powerhouse of all natural remedies. I use sea moss along with our probiotics and multivitamins but if we ever run out of all the other stuff I don’t freak since sea moss stays on deck in our fridge. We get it from our local health food store but here are a couple links for more info on sea moss and where you can grab it from!
What it looks like traveling with three babies. Although their not all so little anymore. This stroller is literally my lifeline every time I go out with them. It’s either they are all well behaved angels and sit still with their little tablets (yes they have tablets) as I take my time to get what I need or it’s complete chaos and they are all trying to escape, especially our two year old little girl. It’s days like those when I don’t feel like I have it all together God sends an angel my way to encourage me that’s His job..He is our strength when we don’t have any left to tell us Go mama! you got this! That friendly soul who will hold that door open or send a genuine smile your way with a head nod. That silent I see you, I get you, I empathize with you. It’s the silver lining of the chaos that makes you just feel understood. Like yeah you ventured out the house with three kids and you did that.
So from me to you momma out there who feel like they are falling a part some days. I see you but so does He. You don’t need to have it all together, you don’t have to feel less than, you are brave, you got this. And even though some may see it as not a big deal you are doing big things and raising the world…their little souls are in your possession and you are doing amazing!
