I am a Christian working mom and wife and let me tell you, it is a busy life. My husband and I have three handsome boys and a beautiful baby girl. Meanwhile, we are trying to make it in the expensive, but oh-so-beautiful California. I am a woman of many trades, but mainly I work with my husband on our video marketing business and our marriage ministry. I have this blog and some other writing I’ve done as a passion of mine.
My biggest and most exciting venture, the one I am hoping will change my life and the lives of others—is my plunge into the marriage ministry with my husband. You can learn more about that at our website Thriving Sexy Marriage.
I also published my first book a year or so ago called: How to Love Like Jesus: A Guide for Children and Their Parents. So far everyone who has read it to their children and grandchildren have felt really blessed by it and best of all, their kids love it! This has been such an encouragement to me as I know this book is needed. I’m still in the beginning stages, having drafted 4 more books so far and have begun the long process of illustrating them. But I am looking forward to the publishing process and writing many more.
Outside of this newest venture, I came home this year from a 12-year-career teaching high school English to help my husband run our business and to work more together on our marriage ministry while taking care of my kids more (no more after school care or day care providers, yay!)
My husband is an internet marketer, specializing in video. He has been cancer free for over a year now and yet through cancer, he continued and even grew his business. He’s such an inspiration. You can check his website out at www.thevideospot.net. I have in the past written resumes on the side and ghost written memoirs for the elderly.
I thoroughly love my work, but above all of that–I just love my husband and kids and I love the Lord. Through my resume work, memoirs, marriage ministry, children’s books–I do hope to leave the profession of teaching to come home and teach my own kids. That is what this blog is about: its about my stories: my struggles, successes, and passions that revolve around health and wellness along with writing/literature topics while trying to also be an excellent wife and mom.
Many blogs seek to encourage and helpful information to other Christian Moms and Wives. I know there must be countless moms out there who have to work as well and who are trying to juggle the many responsibilities in their lives. Or stay-at-home moms who are trying to earn some needed income toward the family through a multi-level-marketing organization or even their own small business. I’m hoping this blog will be something that will inspire you, vindicate you, and comfort you. You are not the only one. And it surely encourages me to know that I am not the only one–so I really appreciate comments and want to reply to them as often as I can.
If you know anyone who might identify with me as an entrepreneurial Christian wife and mom–please refer them to this blog and please share your blogs as well. It is nice to read everyone’s stories and develop a little community of like-minded women who can help build each other up.

Hi Angry Atheist,
I haven’t been blogging for a while, so I just got your messages. I erased your links just because they were so many and I didn’t like it filling up my comments. If you’d like, feel free to post links for me all in one message. I saw them though. As for this article on Martin Luther. While I have not read the book nor know much about Martin Luther, I do know this: Christianity (as in the belief and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior) has existed long before Martin Luther. While there may be some Christians out there who follow Luther’s ideas, we follow the bible, not Martin Luther nor any Christian religious organization and their rituals or creeds, etc. And in Romans 11 it is clear that God loves the Jews and we (non-Jews) are grafted into His family. I study the Jewish feasts and have celebrated them. I love studying Hebrew. I plan to visit Israel again. And in many ways, I am a Zionist. Sooo…..not sure what you know about the bible, but Martin Luther doesn’t have much to do with it.
Rom 11 But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree—some of the people of Israel—have been broken off. And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God’s special olive tree. But you must not brag about being grafted in to replace the branches that were broken off. You are just a branch, not the root.”Well,” you may. For if God did not spare the original branches, he won’t [fn] spare you either.
Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.And if the people of Israel turn from their unbelief, they will be grafted in again, for God has the power to graft them back into the tree. You, by nature, were a branch cut from a wild olive tree. So if God was willing to do something contrary to nature by grafting you into his cultivated tree, he will be far more eager to graft the original branches back into the tree where they belong. I want you to understand this mystery, dear brothers and sisters, [fn] so that you will not feel proud about yourselves. Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ.And so all Israel will be saved. As the Scriptures say, “The one who rescues will come from Jerusalem, [fn] and he will turn Israel [fn] away from ungodliness.And this is my covenant with them, that I will take away their sins.” [fn]Many of the people of Israel are now enemies of the Good News, and this benefits you Gentiles. Yet they are still the people he loves because he chose their ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.Once, you Gentiles were rebels against God, but when the people of Israel rebelled against him, God was merciful to you instead. Now they are the rebels, and God’s mercy has come to you so that they, too, will share [fn] in God’s mercy.
For God has imprisoned everyone in disobedience so he could have mercy on everyone.
Now angry atheist, just to play devil’s advocate….even though I don’t know if Martin Luther was a racist, I agree with you that hating other people because of their race or religion is wrong, but why do you believe hate is wrong? I know why I do… but if atheism is true….then there is no real standard for right and wrong. Its whatever you want it to be. It is all contrived. And in the big scheme of things if naturalism explains life and so forth (as many atheists are naturalists), we do not hold it against the Lion to prey on the gazelle? Why do we hold humans to a higher standard, if we just happened to accidentally evolve more than the modern ape?

You have a wonderful blog! In my poking around it, I see an honest, God-dependent, beautiful woman who has a heart to encourage others. I would love to connect with you about your books. I am a freelance editor and have a major soft spot for children’s books and Christian authors. I know you’re an English teacher, but perhaps you don’t already have a second set of eyes for your projects. I couldn’t find a way to send you a private message and I hate to have this comment sound like spam! You may remove it after you’ve read it, if you desire. Would love to hear from you. If not, take care and keep writing! – Mary Anne, http://www.bradyediting.com
