About Jen Bradley|MOMs
Hi, I’m Jen!
I’m a 40-something homeschooling mom of 5 kids, ages 7-17, 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 everything I could think to declutter: our house, my closet, the calendar. And I learned to finally let go of perfectionism and love myself no matter how often I came up short.
Most importantly, I learned to celebrate the little victories and find joy in small moments.
And now it is my deepest desire to help other moms who are struggling with motherhood to find the same joy, too.
If there’s one thing I know it is this: JOY COMES IN SIMPLE MOMENTS. Even in the midst of chaos, there is something small to appreciate – or even celebrate.
I have a few core beliefs about what can make motherhood joyful:
Thanks for being here, mama. I know your time is precious, and I appreciate it … and you! Let’s find something to celebrate today!
