Welcome, Stepmommas! God is for you, and so am I! My desire is for you to see yourself just as God sees you: as the daughter, wife, mom, and friend He created you to be. I am a thirty-something wife and stepmom of two, for over ten years now. My stepdaughter (22) and stepson (19) have two different moms (one custodial, one non-custodial). I don’t have any biological kids of my own. I work full-time at a software company in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, and besides blogging, I spend my down time cooking, crafting, and playing video games. (Yes, video games.) I confess that there are probably more pictures of my two snobby tuxedo cats and tortoise than my family on my iPhone, and the only reason I work out is because I love food. My mama raised me to be an independent Southern woman, which basically means I am equal parts salty, sweet, and mouthy.
He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother.Psalm 113:9
Although I was saved in middle school, I wasn’t walking with the Lord when I joined the family – only adding to the brokenness. Always the gentleman, God patiently pursued my heart until I finally gave my life back to him seven years ago now. Mine is a story of restoration and hope, and I believe yours can be too. I may work in the corporate world, but my real passion is creating community and safe spaces for women to receive ministry. Ask yourself: what if being a stepmom was a purpose, not a position? I write about the hope, healing, and restoration available to step and blended families, while also sharing funny stories and practical advice from my own journey. I especially love using Instagram and other social media platforms to encourage and empower women on the go! Join me in looking at the steps journey with fresh eyes: I want you to feel at home here!
