My Family – Why I Do What I Do…
A little about me –
I founded Real Life Moms when God placed on my heart the need to be “Real.” The chameleon lifestyle was quite tiring, and I was wearing myself out. I was one way with co-workers. I was another way with friends. Yet, another way with church friends. Nonetheless, another way with family. The underlying question was – Who am I?
Years of soul searching and Bible Study revealed I was not alone on this journey. Many women were experiencing the same difficulties and sharing life with them strengthened my faith. Leaping out of my comfort zone and allowing my mess to become my message emerged Real Life Moms. My deepest prayer is to see Moms live real, confident, and faithful lives.
Perfect pictures kept me from blogging for years. Comparing myself to what other Moms were publishing, I never felt enough. Until one day, it clicked, “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be real!” I felt God whispering share your uncropped, unedited, bright red-eyed photos. Other Moms will relate to the realness versus the perfection. My deepest prayer is just that – relate – for Moms to be able to relate to one another. My hope is that my successes and failures help you feel less alone and encourage you Real Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be amazing!
I am a Bible study leader, blogger, writer, and speaker who enjoys sharing the amazing freedom that can be experienced when our security is rooted in Christ. I am a writer for Lifeway’s Journey Magazine, contributor to various newsletter publications, and enjoy speaking at Mom/Women’s events.
I reside in Cincinnati, Ohio, with my husband and two boys. My family loves sports and one of my favorite things to do is cheer my much-loved players on. When I do have a spare moment a good run or a good book fills the silence.
Thanks for being here!
I would be truly honored to share Real Life with you and make a meaningful contribution to your inbox. Please subscribe above to join me on this motherhood journey.
