My “Why” for Autism Advocacy

My “Why” for autism advocacy.... In the first pic, I was a young mother of a six month old. My son Aaron had just been dedicated in church that day. We were so excited for him. Then a few months later, not long after his first birthday, Aaron’s speech DISAPPEARED. That began our journey on…

Welcome Back To Football Moo!

“Ma, I don’t want to play football anymore.” That statement started a journey of inflection, reflection, honest conversations, healing, and restoration for Team Pruden. But to fully understand what I’m talking about, I have to share our experiences from the beginning.... Our youngest son, Bryant (nicknamed “Moo”), loves football. He has played the game since…

Letting Go and Letting Be….

I’m practicing “letting go” and “letting be”…Let me explain….. Aaron started walking with me a few weeks ago.

I decided I wouldn’t pressure him about walking and…

Hello. My Name is Keischa. I Am A Therapist. I Have COVID Brain.

Late last summer, my husband, Paul, and I contracted COVID-19. Those days were quite the experience, to say the least. There were periods of time where we felt so bad, we knew would surely die. Thankfully, we recovered and went about our lives as normally as we could, with limitations. Before COVID, I had developed…

Mindfulness is The Beginning of Change

After my “blah and tired” feelings the other day, y’all KNOW I started reflecting. First, though, I prayed to my Creator. I talked to Him about my feelings and asked for help, for insight and guidance. Last, I asked for an obedient spirit to do His will. These pics represent why I feel tired. I…
