Our Guardian Angel

Blair Bennet James grew wings on November 4, 2018.  She was a mother, daughter, sister, friend, and inspiration to so many.  Blair was a warrior that was taken too soon, but God only takes his biggest warriors.  We have dedicated this site and our foundation site at www.soulfullyrootedfoundation.com in memory of our sweet angel, a root planted to save many souls.  All of the proceeds of our Charity T-Shirt sales will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  Help us save a soul like Blair's, One Root at a Time.  

About Us

McKina Michael

CEO & Founder

Soulfully Rooted is one of my biggest dreams brought to life. Through this boutique, I am able to spread the message of suicide awareness and help reach those who are battling. I am constantly striving to uproot this issue to the surface and not only bring a community together in someone else's life, but also my own. 

Suicide is a word that hits the inner core bringing chills to the surface, overwhelms a flood of tears from yours eyes, and makes heads turn. It's a constant reminder of lives that are lost to an illness that this world denies to exist. 123 lives are taken each and everyday- families lose loved ones, parents lose children, children lose parents, friends lose peers, and so forth. All this epidemic leaves us all with the question of "Why?". That is why we are dedicated and rooted in stopping this horrific event, one soul at a time.

I'm a firm believer that mental illness is something that the world needs to put in the limelight and recognize as a true disease. It is not something that goes away without a fight and is a constant battle with the devil. One thing we can rest assure in is that God gives his hardest battles to his toughest soldiers, and He sent his only son to take on our battles with us. If anyone that's suffering is reading this- Don't keep hiding your true self and don't let fear override your battles. God didn't give you the storm if he knew you couldn't make it through.

After struggling with this for years, I can positively say that surrendering myself to my Lord and Savior and fully trusting him has been one of the most beautiful journeys. I find peace knowing that I have my heavenly Father, the Son of God, the Messiah, in my corner every second of everyday. I am constantly reminded that He uses us for a purpose bigger than ourselves.

This Boutique is a constant reminder of the absence of my best friend, birth mother, and support system, but it's also a way for me to reach anyone suffering and let them know that they are not alone. I hope that by sharing this testimony about my suicide struggles and the darkest moments I faced, I'm able to turn my tragedy into my everyday purpose: To help and reach the world one soul at a time, as well as keep the legacy of Kristen and Blair alive. For anyone reading this that needs someone to talk to or just needs words of affirmation, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I pray you always know that while you're going to stumble, it’s not the end of your journey. Trust your faith and you can and will overcome.

Thank you so much for all the love and support, and I hope we can join the team and complete the mission ahead. 

All my love,

McKina Michael
