Update, New Book, and a Scavenger Hunt CONTEST


I pray that you and your families are doing well.  My son and I are doing well, getting ready to visit Houston for Kwanzaa.  In a little over a week, we will have been in Belize for 3 months.  Wow, time flies!  Over this time, I have been blessed with more inner space to allow the Divine to flow through me.  In the past 90 days, I’ve written more than I have written all year.  Also, we have been homeschooling and I’ve been knocking out graduate school assignments online for my Master’s in Education.  Some parents have been messaging me and asking me “how?”.  My concise answer is “simplify”.  We don’t need as much as we think we need.  When we decide to consume less, own less, and take up less space, we can educe and produce more.  When you want to do something that seems BIG, ask yourself, what is the easiest way that I can do this?  Then, do it that way.  It will still be hard/challenging, lol.  Focus on the experience and not on having all of the pieces figured out each day.  Be flexible and patient with yourself.  If you need help, ask for help.  That is my advice for braving any new venture in creating the lives we want.

With that update given — exciting news!    I have a new book available for your family!


Getting High is a mental, physical, and spiritual guide for melanated teens who are ready to become their best selves. Many teenagers fall into traps in this vulnerable stage of their lives that affect them negatively for years to come. Avoid the traps and empower your life with Getting High. No matter if you are a teen, a parent, or simply a person seeking guidance, once you apply the principles in this book, you will never be the same.

I am so excited about what this book will provide for our youth!  If you have teenagers (or would like to read it for yourself), I would like for you to have a copy, so I am going to run a CONTEST!  This contest is a SCAVENGER HUNT.

The first seven people to comment with a chapter title from Getting High will receive a free e-copy of the book.  You will have to visit the Amazon page, click Look Inside, and view the Table of Contents to name a chapter.  You can’t name a chapter that someone on the thread has already named.  Readddddyyyyyy… go!

See you in the comments!  Message me if you have any questions about our semester, travels, or experiences.

Love and Light,


Nikala Asante
