A few more pics from the Peruvian Food Tasting Expo Fundraiser yesterday!
Food. Crafts. Games. Writing letters to students and teachers in Peru.

We had some amazing volunteers to help us pull this off! Thank you to Betty Ruiz and her Foreign language club for manning the stations! Thank you to Aleja and Delia for cooking the delicious food.
And a huge thank you to Heather for manning the registration table so I could be available for guests.

Where are my risk taking mom friends out there?

Once we have kids, taking risks are even more scary. It's not just our own life [or partner's life] at risk... it's our kids' lives too.

It seems like a constant and never ending balancing act... we want a safe, yet comfortable life for our kids. However, in order to live the life we truly want to live... risks have to be taken.

Risks that will take us out of the comfort zone.

Risks that others might think we're crazy for taking.

Risks that even our spouse might try to talk us out of.

My whole life I have never been one to play it safe... always had a high risk tolerance. 
Now faced with a challenging decision ... and to be united with my low risk tolerance, highly analytical husband ... This is hard.

My question to you... How risky are you, mom, when it comes to decisions that could affect your family's finances and time together... but in the long run, move you closer to your dream for you and your family?

Great show at the Art Walk in downtown Greeley. 
Evy's pig got choosen to be in the show too!
It's so important to be supportive of each child's individual talent and interests... helping them grow into the little people they were created to be.

Who do you want to impact?

I will share a personal dream of mine... that is about to start coming to fruition.

God put a vision into my heart and mind to impact moms, helping moms to live their best life with their kids in tow... and more than that, God put a dream in my heart to speak to these moms live, in groups of hundreds... even thousands... Well, so I will be able to speak to dozens... if not hundreds of Peruvian moms about fulfilling the deepest desires of their hearts live and in person!

This will happen this summer, with the help and support of my amazing Peruvian husband... So... whatever your vision is for your life... may you impact the people around you in only the way that YOU can.

Who do you want to...

Are you feeling a lack of motivation?

Try this.

Start your day with a reminder of how wonderfully amazing you are. YOU sister, are made in the image of God... your deep heart desires are HIS deep heart desires. 
Keep that flame burning deep in your soul.

Start by writing yourself love notes on the mirror before you go to bed at night, so they great you in the morning and bring delight into your soul.

You are amazing mama.

Write a comment here to let me know what you will write to yourself on your mirror tonight.

Helping moms live their best life... with kids in tow.
That's the desire of my heart.
It's easy to forget your own desires when you're a mom... and a wife... and have a career... and/or a business... and the cleaning... and the kid activities... and... and... and...
Yes... raise your kids with all the passion for them in the world, and remember that you are an individual who God created... and those passions and desires you had before becoming a mom...
They Are Still Possible.
Find a way to make it happen mama.
Leave me a comment and let me know what your life's passion is.

My name is Katy

Below you will find, a couple of words about me

Pinit

Katy Acosta is a blogger with a dream of being a motivational speaker,  born in Colorado and spouse to Alex Acosta, she has 2 children, Patrick in 3rd grade and Evy in Kindergarten. Katy has dedicated much of her adult life to serving others.

Living in Peru in 2003, shortly after marrying Alex, she helped him plant a church there until returning to the United States with him in 2005 to plant another church in Greeley, CO.

With a heart to serve the Greeley Latino community, Katy was instrumental in building, training volunteers and running English classes for adult Latinos through Christ Community Church. Later, after receiving her Masters’ degree in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education from the University of Northern Colorado, her work with teaching English to newcomers in the community continued in the local public school district.

After years of service to others, in 2015 Katy took some time away from teaching and service to pursue her own passions and desires for life and the long-term impact she wants to leave on this world through online entrepreneurship. Out of these last three years of this pursuit, Katy has created A Mom That Matters, helping moms balance business, relationships and wellness.
