Hello and welcome to your home away from home for learning about creating a strong and resilient family using simple timeless principles. It may be challenging but it doesn’t have to be complicated! I’m a used-to-be feminist who looked for satisfaction and fulfillment behind every door but my own. Even after having children I kept looking for part time jobs or “side hustles” so that I could ad some worth to what I viewed as an average, boring life. I was so depressed that I didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning and I quit answering my phone or the door. I was home all day with the kids but the house was a wreck and I rarely cooked anything. I thought this was my sentence for the next eighteen years and the thought of all of my hopes and ambitions going up in this blazing un-glory was almost more than I could stand. Finally through some advice, some good books and some trial and error I began to see that I was my own worst enemy. I was the only one in the way of a life that I could love and be proud of…if only I could let go of some toxic beliefs I held about what it meant to be a wife, mother and home manager. In this blog I will share with you how you can become strong and resilient and in so doing lead your family on the same path. It is challenging but we are made for challenges. It is challenging but challenges make us stronger. It is challenging but it is NOT complicated. Everything I share with you will be based on simple principles. These are not rules with particular details. These are principles with overarching truths that you will be able to apply to your family and situation.
