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 all focused on writing and art.
My biggest and most exciting venture, the one I am hoping will change my life and the lives of others—is my plunge into authoring Christian Children’s Books. I just recently published my first book 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 am juggling three trades that bring some of the money into our house-hold (my main three, since I am a new author, obviously). My husband is an internet marketer, specializing in video. You can check his website out at www.thevideospot.net. My money makers are teaching high school English by day, and then by nights, weekends, and breaks, I am a freelance resume writer, as well as a writer and interviewer for Sound of Your Voice Memoirs. Sound of Your Voice Memoir is a memoir writing service stationed here in San Diego County, but serving the retired community across the nation.
I thoroughly love all three professions, but above all of that–I just love my husband and kids and I love the Lord. Through my resume work, memoirs, and 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 working in the literature and writing field with big dreams for the future 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.
