Guest Blogger for Nourishing Your Temple!

 

I had the opportunity to share my story with someone that has been very influential in my journey, and has grown to be one of my closest friends/sisters in Christ. Jada is SUCH a spiritual fireball & her passion for health (physical and spiritual) is so inspiring! Here’s a little snippet from her “about me” section on the blog!

“Your first priority is to be your home. What does this look like on a day-to-day basis? This means setting the atmosphere of your home as one that leads your family towards, not away from, Christ. This means providing a peaceful atmosphere; this means feeding your family nutritious meals that will provide their bodies with the energy and health to do all that God has called them to do. Yes, we know that God is a healer, but what if we did our parts as women by preventing what we know how to prevent? We know that diabetes, high blood pressure, really any type of heart disease, stems from the way we eat. Do you know what this means? It means we as women are single-handedly called to do our best to prevent what is now the leading cause of death in our country. That’s huge! For me, that trumps the excuse “I just love soul food” any day of the week. Now that I have come to this conclusion, my site means even more to me. If I can get women to care more about the way they feed their bodies, then maybe those meals will make it to their dinner table. Maybe those meals will make it in front of their husbands, their friends, their children. Maybe those meals can reverse diseases that would have happened had they not changed their diet. Maybe, just maybe, the Lord can use this site to change lives in such a way that generations to come are taught a plant-based way of eating, and diseases that have been on the rise for decades can start to slowly diminish as we become more knowledgeable. This was all the revelation I needed to keep pushing with this blog, even when it feels like no one is reading. When I get discouraged, I remember this: If only one person is inspired by my blog to eat healthier and share the information with her children or with her family, I’ve done my work. Just from one mom reading my blog, her children, her children’s children, her children’s children’s children, etc. will be impacted. Just from one woman in her single season reading my blog, her best friend, her mom, her dad, her brother, her brother’s friend, her grandparents, her grandparent’s church friends, etc. can be impacted. For this reason, I do not take my calling lightly! I will teach women to glorify God by nourishing the temple He has only let them borrow for this life that is but a vapor. I will teach women to make the connection between physical discipline and spiritual discipline. I will inspire women to feed their bodies as unto the Lord, so that they can go out into this world strong and mighty. We are not called to be disease-ridden, half-asleep disciples; we are called to be warriors in His army! Women- let’s stand up and do our parts in raising up our generation and the generations to come to be soldiers physically ready for battle! I love every single one of you, and this blog is an expression of my love for you and for your families!”

After years of receiving defeating news of miscarriage coupled with countless negative pregnancy test, as well as medical providers doubting my chances of pregnancy with a history of pcos, my blessing was planted in my womb.  When we found out I was pregnant (and taking a test 10 times due to disbelief) it was very important for us to have support. Raven communicated with me during times of infertility, provided resources and suggestions so I just knew I wanted her to be my doula after receiving news we were officially pregnant. When Raye initially mentioned she may not be able to commit due to other obligations and I was so devastated. Inevitably, I contracted with another doula and terminated that contract as soon as I discovered Raye was accepting doula clients. During my initial consultation call with Raven I immediately recognized the switch was the best thing to do for ME.   From prenatal visit to labor and delivery, my entire birth process seemed so personalized. I appreciated that Raven frequently helped me normalize  my concerns and feelings while discouraging all negative thoughts on pregnancy.  During labor, Raye not only supported me but also my husband. She was able to take over and allowed him to rest which he is still appreciative of. Her counter pressure techniques really helped me deal with contractions as they were getting more intense. Now that I have transitioned to post partum, Raye continues to provide support and check ins. It truly takes a village & I am grateful to have had Raven as my doula, and support.

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.

Working with Raye is a dream!!! She was extremely responsive and helpful. On one of my strands the sizing was a little off. I was able to send it back and she got me right. I absolutely love her as a person and as an entrepreneur! She is definitely on my short list for doulas as well. She’s amazing and definitely is mastering all her crafts.

What can I really say about this woman right here? She is my shero, my personal nurse lol. When I was battling with infertility she was right alongside  of me helping me to fight and to not give up hope. She encourages me , prayed for me and helped me to loose weight and get healthy for my miracle that we knew was coming.  Almost two years later here I am with my miracle baby . Although it’s been rough with so many scares in the beginning , she’s still alongside of me coaching me and helping me through my fears . I love this woman !. -Jasmine
