“Someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business” - Rachel Hollis
All my life I’ve been a follower. I hate being the center of attention, and I never wanted to be the first one to do anything. I always feared what other people would think of me.
Virtual health Coaching has brought out the leader in me. Something I’m still a work in progress with, but I’ve come so far and I’m so grateful. Filling my mind with positive things every day has truly been a game changer. Who knew reading was such a good thing 😆
There are people who think I’m crazy for doing what I do, I’m sure of it. But the difference between now and a few years ago... is that I don’t care what they think 🤷🏻♀️
Leadership skills, friendships made, fitness accountability, nothing but an uplifting atmosphere... I’ve been so blessed by this opportunity that I could shout it from the rooftops! .
Find your passion, and pursue it relentlessly ♥️
My goodness I love these kids something fierce. Being away sure makes me appreciate being their mom even more. ❤️❤️❤️
In the busy and stress of each day, I sometimes find that I lose my joy in being mom. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom. It’s the greatest calling I will ever have. But the days can be long and hard, especially in certain phases of life. Once I’ve refilled my cup or spent a day doing something for me though, without worrying about everyone else, I always return feeling rejuvenated and ready to give more of myself.
The saying you can’t pour from an empty cup is so true. I just need to be better at finding simple ways to fill it because my kids deserve it and I’m tired of feeling guilty at the end of each day. We can only handle so much and our patience can only be stretched so thin ya know? We’re human, even though we as moms expect ourselves to be superhumans- and most days we are. We need to recharge too.
What are little things you do?
Thank you Lord Jesus because I remember the moments I asked you for a partner, a man to share my life with, someone that would respect me and love me ❤️ I remember asking you to give me the privilege of being a mom and have my own children🤱🏻 No one else knew my prayers but You.
That desert passed and I encountered the blessings you had in store for me. You never left my prayers unanswered. And I’m so grateful everyday. This was the moment. It wasn’t answered immediately because you were teaching me a lesson.
Trust the process you’re going through. If it feels hard and illogical, the blessing coming is even better than you even imagine. ✨
The single 4 reasons I was put on this earth. God knew long before I did, that I would be blessed with these four beautiful babies. That I would get the wonderful blessing of being their mother. Words can’t describe the love I feel for them. And the time I have on this earth is not long enough to love them. They are my world. They are my soul. They are my heart. They are every inch of my being. You are my babies, and I am your mother. You will forever be my heart. #myblessings #myheart #mamabear #myworld #momlifeisthebestlife
“You don’t know what unconditional love is. You may say you do, but if you don’t have a child, you don’t know what that is. But when you experience it, it is the most fulfilling feeling ever.” 💕#myblessings #mammasbabies #forever #love #xoxo
There’s like 15 different textbooks going on here. Different levels. One teacher, often feeling very unqualified, but counting my blessings right here! I love them home. They love homeschool. Unstaged, books galore covering the table, allergy season/sinus issues hence the tissue box, summer flowers still on the lighting because I can’t let go of summer....just another day of getting through the books. Yes textbooks 😬🤓 I wish I had the patience for all the other fun/creative ways of teaching/learning. At this stage...I feel like it’s pretty critical to stay with the books. Any creativity or skipped textbook day I feel puts them behind and I have no idea what next school year holds. This has been a year to year decision for us and if we go till they all graduate, it’s only by Gods grace, strength, and peace that we make it through. If they end up in a traditional classroom somewhere...I pray to God they would be ready for it. #needfulltimegrader
🤪 homeschool con is, there’s always something to grade 😩 all day long. But the pros far outweigh the cons! #myblessings
We are well into the beginning of the school year, and I have yet to post a picture of my kids’ first day.😂. Well here it is!! TaDa!
You see, when my kids were little, smart phones didn’t exist and taking “first day of school” pictures were not a thing.🤷🏻♀️. Therefore, I wasn’t one to make a big deal of the first day of school, but this year I actually took a picture because it was a big deal (I just didn’t post it because I was still trying to accept it and take it in).
After homeschooling 4 kids for 14 years and counting, I am down to schooling TWO! How quickly time passes, but I am not sad but happy, thankful, and proud. God has been my help through it all...it hasn’t been easy, but then life isn’t, right?🤷🏻♀️. I still remember when we decided we would homeschool our kids, even before we had them or knew how many we’d be blessed with. Well, now we (my husband and I) are down to homeschooling two. 2 TWO✌🏽😮
We only have 6 more years to go to reach our destination from this journey called homeschool. It has been an adventure every step of the way, and I look forward to the new experiences that are ahead of us as we approach the final destination. In the meantime, I will enjoy every single moment with these two.❤️

12 years ago God brought this angel 😇 into my life... my heart overjoyed seeing her yesterday... if you don’t know her... you’re missing out! #myblessings
to the outside world, we all grow old. but not to brothers and sisters. we know each other as we always were. we know each other’s hearts.❤️
My baby turned 6 🕉 Not so young anymore . But expecting a lot of presents for his birthday. I count my blessing with love of people that are genuine and positive. So that life is all about it. #myparents #myson #myhusband #myfriends

I’m so grateful to be able to stay at home with my baby girl. Even though it’s not always easy, it is so worth it. Every moment spent with her is such a blessing. Thank you @justindmckay
for making it happen. 😊💖
My baby got his 1st packet of homework this week & he finished the whole pack in one day! He loves school & he loves to learn....I swear it's a blessing that I don't have to force my kids to do homework! #Nas
I am satisfied!!! Got my seafood craving fix this weekend! Definitely had to start and finish it up with Oyster Shooter with raw quail egg and ponzu sauce 😋🍣🐟🦐 oh taste and see!!! It’s another celebration with my loves. Joshua ate 2 rolls of California sushi 😆 with a small serving of udon. The boys also took small bites of toro, garlic tuna, ikura and abalone. I am stuffed and satisfied. Thank you God for seafood! Another day of celebration with delicious food and my family! ❤️❤️❤️
