About Me

I’m a stay-at-home mom of three young kids, one girl and two boys. My husband and I have been married since June of 2004. I’ve had the idea to write this blog since 2006 when I had my first child, but I didn’t actually do anything about it until 2011. I’m kind of a slow mover.

When I got married, I read a book called “The Conscious Bride” by Sheryl Nissinen, and it was extremely helpful to me in helping me process through the wide range of emotions I went through in deciding to get married. It was so helpful that when I started to feel that same onslaught of difficult, perplexing emotions after I had my first baby, I wished desperately that Sheryl Nissinen had also written a book called, “The Conscious Mom.”

But she didn’t.  I looked everywhere for a book that might address the same issues I was hoping would have been addressed, but my searches proved fairly fruitless. So after reading many, many books about new motherhood and transitioning from working girl to stay-at-home mom, and eventually sinking into a pretty significant depression, and then coming out if it, I finally decided that I needed to write about being a Conscious Mom myself.

Please note this important disclaimer: I don’t actually know how exactly to be a Conscious Mom. That’s why I added the word journey into the mix. I realized one day that the only way for me to make any sense of the perplexities of motherhood and wifedom was for me to write through them. As I learn new things or realize new insights, I will share them.

The main purpose for this blog is to empower and/or inspire moms of any age to take control of their lives and find the courage to create the life they really want – all without sacrificing the happiness or well-being of anyone in their family, including themselves.

    There is an incredible freedom that comes when you become conscious of who you are…the good, bad, ugly, delightful, smelly, awkward, funny…….you get it. I call it “looking in the mirror naked.” When you can do that and completely embrace yourself for who you are in that moment, knowing that you are okay, you will find peace. In this beautiful place, you don’t have to be repulsed because you have faults. You recognize them and move on. You don’t hide them and you don’t wallow in them either. You can’t address something that is hidden. You also see all of the beautiful and extraordinary things that are you as well. Thanks for the blog. I’m looking forward to continuing my journey with you.
