My husband, Miguel,  and I have been blessed (so far) with three wonderful littles: Hadassah, Annelise, and Jonathan. We are absolutely ECSTATIC that God chose us to be their parents! We have been blessed to know so many great families from whom we have been able to learn a lot about how we want to parent out kids. It is not easy, and it is not perfect, but it is so worth it. There is nothing else that is more important than how we raise our kids, and we only have a very short season in our lives to do it!

I hope that Start Homemaking can be a place where moms can find encouragement, wisdom, and practical ideas for raising our kids. We need each other in this endeavor!

Letter to My Strong-Willed Daughter

My Dearest Girl,
Honey, let me take a deep breath and begin by saying, I love you so much. I know that you and I are both TIRED. We are exhausted. But no matter how frustrating our days are, I want you to know that I love you so deeply. You test me sometimes. You try every shred of patience in me. But you are a blessing, and I am utterly honored that God chose ME to raise you.
