You are smart and interesting and amazing. But are you living to your fullest potential?

LELA (Life, Education, Literacy, Arts) House is a virtual home fostering life transformation for educators, literacy lovers, and artists.

God created you with a purpose; He has a plan for you to transform lives. At LELA House, you can become who God created you to be through coaching & courses, products, events, and fun designed to help you discover your unique design, become critically engaged, and transform community.

Who is LELA House for?


Do you help people access and harness the transformative power of education? Then you are an educator, regardless of your title – teacher, principal, professor, dean, administrator, coach, etc.

Literacy Lovers

Do you help people access and acquire the transformative power of reading and writing? Then you’re a literacy lover, regardless of your title – librarian, historian, archivist, court reporter, transcriber, translator, reading & writing center faculty, etc.


Do you help people access and experience the transcendent? Do you help them see God? Then you’re an artist, regardless of your title – artist, writer, singer, dancer, musician, minister, etc.

As an educator, literacy lover, and artist, you transform lives every day. You work in the real and raw aspects of life, and you care for people by shepherding them through education, literacy, and art. But are you working to care for yourself and find your own transformation?

Self care can certainly look like a spa day, but caring for yourself and finding transformation also means investing in your own passions and creativity, investing in your soul.

Everyone does not fit into a mold, so LELA House does not offer one-size-fits-all systems and solutions. Instead, Roshaunda offers personalized coaching that embraces the deep work of discerning your unique design to become critically engaged in self care that serves and transforms you. Through that work, you’ll become energized to continue transforming your community in new and sustainable ways.

Are you burned out from the daily toll of your transformational work? Do you find yourself with no energy or time to care for yourself? Are you putting your dreams on the back burner while helping others pursue their goals? Do you want to explore your full potential? Do you want to transform?

If this sounds like you, then you’re ready to make LELA House home and discover how LELA House can serve you.

LELA House offers coaching & courses, events, and some LELA House fun to help educators, literacy lovers, and artists make space in their lives for self care and transformation.

But who is Roshaunda?

I’m Roshaunda D. Cade, Ph.D., and I believe God created every individual with a unique design to transform the world. I hold a bachelors, masters, and doctorate in English. I’m a certified life coach and licensed Christian minister, and I have extensive experience operating in the fields of education, literacy, and arts. I am a dynamic mass of contradictions. An introvert passionate about working with people. An educator disillusioned with the state of education. A kind and curious coach who is firm and diligent when it comes to your transformation. I ask powerful questions to discover the potential and possibility hidden in people and problems. I’m passionate about education, literacy, arts, and especially about helping people become who God created them to be.
