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…

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…

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…

“Wherever I Go, Aaron Goes”

Learn From the Pain

Pain never feels good. It doesn’t matter the origin; whether it’s biological, psychological, or spiritual, pain is pain. Often, distress becomes like an unwelcome companion in our daily walk. We become used to the hurt, the disappointment, the loneliness, the stress. It may seem like we exist only to FEEL waves of struggle. 2020 is…

Tuesday Convo With My Creator

As I was walking and praying this morning, I was asking My Creator to forgive me for not spending enough time with Him. I found myself thinking about it and asked forgiveness again. I heard this Word in my spirit and Little Keischa smiled. She knows Adult Keischa has a tendency to ruminate on mistakes…
