No one gets married and wants to get a divorce. How does one get to that point? Should you only get married once? Why is divorced so shameful? Your vows include the phrase, “till death do us part.” Does that mean forever?  In this episode, we discuss all of this plus bittersweet lessons from divorce, rebuilding and preparing for the next relationship, living together before marriage with our guest, Alicia Hawthorne who provides insight and guidance on life after divorce. 


  1. How do you feel about marriage before and after divorce?
  2. Do you feel marriage is necessary?
  3. Why should people get married?

“For over 10 years, I have been creating natural products for my family. My hobby of creating natural concoctions became a passion that I wanted to share with everyone. I started out with shea butter blends which turned into creating more hair and skin goodness!”

What is this puzzle piece doing on my packaging?” I’m glad you asked. The puzzle piece on your packaging means that the product stickers were prepared with assistance by my daughter who is on the spectrum. Belsiah Naturals was designed with family in mind. We strive to bring awareness and inclusion to individuals on the Autism spectrum. So if you see a puzzle piece on your package—you’ve been “puzzled!”. So smile when your label is a little crooked. Smile when your tape is out of place. Know that it was packaged with love and the heart of family.”

Thank you for supporting Belsiah Naturals! We hope you enjoy your product!

say goodbye to being the side chick

When you find yourself really settling with the reality that you are the side chick, when you find yourself tired of the games and/or the complacency, it’s time to ask yourself a few questions.
