Breaking news: Joy in motherhood IS possible!

Hey mama, are you tired?

Do you just want to take a 6-hour nap?
  • Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed with the state of your house or your overstuffed closet?

  • Tired of feeling frustrated with your kids for being, well, kids?

  • Perhaps your feeling tired of feeling guilty for all. the. things you think you SHOULD be doing as a mom, wife, housekeeper, homeschooler, woman, party-planner, chef, chauffeur, gardener, psychologist, and friend? 

  • Or maybe you’re just so physically tired that your bed is now your ultimate travel destination? 

Let me just tell you, you are in the RIGHT PLACE. 

Why? 

Because I know where you are. And I also know this isn’t what motherhood is intended to be. 

I want to help you find JOY in being a mom. To help you wake up in the morning with intention, ready to meet those little darlings that you love so much it hurts. 

I want to help you to find ways to cut down the amount of time you spend on maintaining your home and all the things so you can actually enjoy the people you do all this work for. 

I want you to know that you are an amazing mom. Because, even if you haven’t heard it in awhile or you can’t bring yourself to believe it, you ARE an amazing mom. 

I have a few core beliefs about what can make motherhood joyful:

Faith

Belief that we are here for a reason gives everything in our lives meaning. You aren't here on accident, mama. You're not alone on this journey through life. You are meant to do something wonderful with your life because there is a God who has great plans for you. And being a mother is something wonderful, for sure.

Kindness

At its very core, motherhood is kindness. It's love. It doesn't matter how you brought your kids to you - c-section, natural home birth, adoption, whatever. What brought those babies to you was LOVE. Kindness is love in action. When we determine to be kind to our family members, our neighbors, friends and ESPECIALLY to ourselves, motherhood can become joyful.

Consistency

Do you ever feel like your days are always the same? Wake up, breakfast, school, lunch, naps, homework, activities, dinner, bath and bed? While the demands surrounding us are repetitious and consistent, it is consistency in our self-care and personal habits that becomes a total game changer for moms.

Intention

We've all heard it said that the days when our kids are at home will just fly by, right? Living with intention is the difference between letting these days simply pass us by or choosing to fill them with things that bring meaning to who we are and who our kids are. Intention is a choice to take control of our lives and start living on purpose.

Hi, I’m Jen! 

I’m an almost-40 year old homeschooling mom of 5 kids, ages 4-14 and a military wife.

To be honest, I never thought I’d be ANY of those things. My teenage vision for my life centered on gray skirt suits, Madison Avenue, and a luxury apartment on the upper West Side. Instead, I wear jeans and t-shirts, live in small-town Texas, and make bomb grilled cheese sandwiches. 

It took me a LONG time (read: 10 years) to figure out how to find joy in motherhood. Sure, I like to think I faked it pretty well up until that point. But inside, I was a mess.

It wasn’t until I made the quality decision to get intentional with my life that things started to change. I decluttered my closets and created a capsule wardrobe. Next, I decluttered my house. Then I created a morning routine. I changed our diet. And I learned to finally let go of perfectionism and love myself no matter how often I came up short. 

joy in motherhood comes in moments

I started this blog because I became OBSESSED with my new life and the joy I’ve since experienced as a mom. 

And now it is my deepest desire to help other moms who are struggling with motherhood to find the same joy, too. 

If you’re interested, I’ve developed an online course to help moms design a wardrobe that helps moms feel confident, comfortable in their own skin and put together. More courses on time management for moms, decluttering, healthy eating and more are on the way.
