I'm not sure exactly what led you here or what you story is, but here is the biggest thing I want you to know: I believe that you were created to live a rich, abundant life full of peace, purpose, joy and fulfillment - and I am here to help you make that a reality.
For the past several years I have been joyfully married to my high school sweetheart and home raising (and homeschooling!) my herd of four tiny humans, while striving to learn how to navigate marriage, motherhood and homemaking with as much grace as possible.
In 2015, when I started my first blog and business from home, life as I knew it turned completely upside down...
Gone were the slow(er)-paced days of late morning snuggles with my babies, wearing pajamas all day every day, napping when the baby napped and the highlight of my week being getting everyone dressed and out the door on time for church each Sunday.
When I began working from home my life became all about pouring everything I could into being a good wife, mommy and homemaker and then finding every nook and cranny I could in my day to pour the rest of me into sharing my gifts and growing my business.
It's been hard, I've made plenty of mistakes and I've been tempted to give it all up more times than I can count. And, if you're anything like me - a passionate, purpose-driven mama with big dreams and desires to make the most of the one life you've been given - you know exactly what I'm talking about.
You make endless to-do lists that never seem to get any smaller. You set high expectations for yourself and hustle hard. You know you were created for big, beautiful, amazing things and you don't want to settle for anything less than your God-given potential.
But, all of that hustle has you burnt out, used up and stuck spinning your wheels.
You're tired of waking up every day to a miles long to-do list staring you in the face, that only seems to have grown by the end of the day.
The stress of struggling to get everything done and actually move forward, combined with the guilt that comes from feeling like you will never be good enough no matter how hard you try, has made you question whether it's all worth it.
All around you, life is happening, and sometimes you feel like a bystander in your own.
You feel like you're constantly moving, constantly doing, but missing out on those soul-satisfying moments that come from truly being present for each moment of your life.
Maybe you've even been wondering if there is something wrong with you because you see others who seem to have cracked the code.
What you want doesn't seem like it should be too much to ask for: a passionate, thriving marriage. Quality, engaged relationships with your kids. A deeply connected and intimate relationship with God. A well-run home and maybe even a business that you can be proud of.
But experience has shown you that (clearly) that all totals up to a pretty tall order.
You toggle back and forth between feeling fueled by passion and empowered to make your life better....and feeling hopelessly exhausted from trying to do #allthethings, and coming up short every. single. time.
ANY OF THIS SOUNDING FAMILIAR? YEP, ME TOO FRIEND - I'VE LIVED IT!
I believe that God created us to be goal-oriented, purpose-driven, action-taking dreamers. And I also believe that anything he has called us to do, he will equip us to do well.
But we have to learn to start looking to him as our ultimate source of peace, purpose and joy - and it also helps to have someone in your corner, fighting alongside you and helping you to see your path more clearly.
I'm not okay with seeing a generation of women settle for a life of chronic overwhelm, a marriage that doesn't light them up, motherhood that feels more draining than delightful, a lukewarm relationship with God, no time for proper self-care, living paycheck to paycheck and never gaining momentum in the businesses they are pouring their hearts and souls into.
And I know that's not what you want for yourself......
