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.
