You have three things to optimize, in my opinion—I have three blissful SOULutions:
1) noticing 2) nurturing 3) emBODYing
cyclical rhythms in soul care
CHOCOLATE. CURIOUS. CO-CREATOR. CURATOR.
"Either you bring me some chocolate or you leave me alone." - Unknown
It has been said, "I'm not addicted to chocolate, chocolate is addicted to me." I can testify to this—dark chocolate is drawn to me, and I'm sticking by that narrative.
So who am I? I’m Andrea "Angie" (aka Mohawkmomma) Palmer. I am the beloved wombman now that the little girl, Angie, always wanted to be—curious, creative, courageous. Mohawkmomma Studio is dedicated to her/our sacred energy + imagination. My God-given energy is my validation (and so is yours).
I've always been allergic to small talk. She's a human awakened to the responsibility of coming home to being a child-like creator, energy emcee, parishioner of peace, congregant of chocolate (AMEN for dark chocolate!), mindful momma, meditative muse, embodiment educator, daydreaming doula, rest recipient + researcher, abundance ambassador, intimacy impresario, advocate aficionado, beacon of belonging + belovedness, curious connoisseur, divine disruptor, pleasure preacher, sabbathing sommelier.
Because I seek + organize + discipline my life around the bliss + ecstasy of the mystery and the miraculous of cyclical soul care + self-care, I am well suited to awaken others into life-long noticing, nurturing, and embodying Sabbathing Rhythms on the SOULbriety path. It's powered by the feminine flow of the Holy Spirit (Ruach), Yeshua's shepherding, my jubilant imagination, and of course, ethically sourced and made dark chocolate (insert praise hands).
Wondering about the name Mohawkmomma? My paternal grandfather is part Native American (I'm still excavating the ancestral tribal search). In my 30s I knew it was time to shave my locs and align with my ancestral connection. Also, the nickname emerged from my children telling their friends, "My mom wears a Mohawk."
As a meditative storyteller, I don't merely tell contemplative stories, I am one. I'm a prophetic conduit from which they flow. I invite shalom-makers to rest in adult curiosity that awakens us to child-like embodied and emboldened joy, personally + collectively. We will expand from the inside out. This becomes our sustainability + sustenance.
Will you join me in this lifelong adult-infused, child-like expansion + nourishment?
Grab My Bio:
The short version - Andrea (or Angie) is 'Mohawkmomma' Palmer. First and foremost—resting. She is living art—welcoming her prophetic movement, creative observations + bliss wherever it can be encountered through her divinely-infused humanity. She prefers to savor over scroll, as she awakens + welcomes others into audacious Sabbathing Rhythms.
The long version: Andrea Lafawn Coleman Palmer was born down South in Little Rock, Arkansas. She emerged as the firstborn of seven from a family of entrepreneurs, prophets, preachers, poets, and psalmists. She aligns her living, scribbling + speaking with liberating rest rhythms.
She's always been allergic to small talk. She's a human awakened to the responsibility of coming home to being a child-like creator, energy emcee, parishioner of peace, congregant of chocolate (AMEN for dark chocolate!), mindful momma, meditative muse, embodiment educator, daydreaming doula, rest recipient + researcher, abundance ambassador, intimacy impresario, advocate aficionado, beacon of belonging + belovedness, curious connoisseur, divine disruptor, pleasure preacher, sabbathing sommelier.
She's a momma of eight on the earth (and one in heaven), scribbler of poems, alliterations, prayers, and prose, wife of Keith, indie podcaster + publisher who creates and curates prophetic + pastoral soul care stationery, meditative sounds, and soul care boxes—SOULutions.
As a former women's pastor/director/retreat planner + speaker, she creates decolonizing, trauma-informed, soul care spaces to welcome + awaken others to give TO themselves as much as they give OF themselves— wholeheartedly, courageously, creatively (without guilt).
Her bliss moments are feeling the vibration of her thoughts + voice, seeking God's goodness in seeing nature's intelligence within her body and without, writing alliterations, listening without second-guessing herself, all things chocolate: dark chocolate, hot chocolate, chocolate without sugar alcohols/lecithins/emulsifiers (basically, chocolate without all the crap!), smiling at herself, sticky notes, wearing funky earrings, burning candles and incense, making smoothies, moon bathing, daydreaming, diffusing essential oils, making + sipping herbal teas, personal and communal lament, taking naps, nerding out on the Scriptures and neuro research (all research, especially ancestral), writing thank you notes (old school style), vibin' on jazz and the musical stylings of Aretha Franklin, Rachelle Ferrell, Alice and John Coltrane, Jon Batiste, Anita Baker, India Arie, Nina Simone, Jill Scott, Fatai, Chantae Cann, Toni Jones, Jonathan McReynolds, Ruby Amanfu, Peter Collins, L'indécis, Tobe Nwigwe and Lauryn Hill (to name a few).
DESIGNING. ILLUSTRATING. IMAGINING.
I'm the Creative Design Officer here at MMS. My name is Avelore Palmer, and I’m always wearing a pencil and a few flowers in my hair, and I’m never without a sketchbook. I find inspiration in nature, shapes, and colors, so I’m always designing.
Here, I wear a lot of hats.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale with an Associate’s degree in Fashion Design in 2018, so I bring my skills in concept and product design; color forecasting; photography; and graphics/illustration designing to the table.
And with Mohawmomma being my actual mom, that table is usually in our dining room!
