Special needs dads are the silent heroes of our world. They are rarely given the credit they are due for their hard work, sacrifice, and unflinching love they have for their children. Paul Pruden Jr is our special needs dad extraordinaire. As a father to one son with autism and one son with ADHD, his…

My “Why” For Autism Advocacy

My “Why” for autism advocacy…. In this 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 the…

COVID 19 and Survivor’s Guilt

My husband Paul lost a very good friend recently. “Mr. Buck”, as I loved to call him, was the friend people wanted to have and aspired to be. He loved God, was a wise man, and was a true encourager. I would go so far as to say he kept Paul calm, especially during their…

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…

Tuesday Convo With My Creator

Oftentimes, when we think of success or promotion, we think of the positive aspects of our lives that contributed to our elevation. The truth (at least in my case) was made clear as I was praying the other morning. My Creator reminded me that trials, obstacles, and not so pleasant times can often be the…

Moo Saved My Life!

Moo saved me this morning and didn’t even know it! I usually walk to and from the local park as part of my daily wellness plan. Moo DRIVES to and from the park… I guess that’s part of his wellness plan too😂 Anyway, every morning before walking, I check my blood sugar and blood pressure…

“Wherever I Go, Aaron Goes”

My sons Bryant (driver) and Aaron. My youngest son, Bryant, just got his driver’s license a few months ago. Without hesitation, my oldest son, Aaron jumps right on the passenger side and rides with Bryant wherever he goes. This warms for my heart for so many reasons. My children (young men, I know) are both…
