Hi. I’m Christy

A couple years ago, I asked one of my children to complete one of his relatively innocuous chores, like pick up his toys.  It was at the end of a long day at work, I was trying to get dinner on the table and put the house back in order so after we ate, we could get ready to do it all again the next day.  I was grouchy and I’m pretty sure I was half-telling and full-on nagging him to get himself in gear.

He turned around and said “Okay, Mommster.”

I couldn’t help but laugh. It was a perfect description of the best and no-so-best parts of me.  

If you’re still reading, I’m guessing you may a Mommster too

You’re raising a family, pursuing a career, seeking sustenance in your faith, growing your passions, dating your spouse, building a home, furthering your education, pinning your next DIY projects, exercising a couple times a month, sleeping when the baby sleeps (ha), drinking *large* cups of coffee, and eating enough leafy green vegetables before the produce you bought from the farmers market goes bad.  If you’re like me, you’re also seeking authenticity and support from others Mommsters out there.

Professionally, I’ve worked with children and families in the education system for the past decade, hold degrees in psychology and social work, and have obtained professional licensures for clinical practice, special education, and educational administration. The scholastic adventures I have experienced in working with children from pre-school thru 12th grade come in a close second in regards to enlightenment I have attained from my agriculturally adept husband and my five children.

We may not always have it together,

but together, we have it all. 

(I didn’t make that up but whoever did, you should DM me and we can be besties)

We never planned on starting our own basketball team but here we are… multiple kids in foul trouble, in double bonus (twins) but making the most of the time left on the clock. 

The Faux Farmer

We’re from the country and we like it that way.   At least that’s what I keep telling myself as I learn the ropes of managing a small farm with my husband.

Things get a little hectic on Sunday mornings but it’s the best way to begin the week.  Here’s to counting our blessings and our journey in faith as a family.
