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?

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.

Proof Santa Is Real

Just a funny, quick little story that reminded me about how it really doesn’t matter how much you teach your kids… they’re still going to form their own opinions and their own beliefs about life.

So… ever since my husband, Alex, and I were married we always agreed that we were not going to tell our kids that Santa was real

 

Santa is not a bad thing, but we just didn’t want to tell them that Santa was real and Santa brings them gifts at Christmas time and all that jazz.

 

So we’ve never done that with them and at this point my my son is almost 9 and my daughter is 5 …

 

The other day we went to Subway and somehow we got into this conversation with my kids about Santa Claus. I don’t even remember where that conversation came from, but Patrick my son, says to me with total confidence, “you know what, I know Santa is real.”

 

To which I said,”what what do you mean? Santa’s never brought you any presents before. We talked about this before.”

 

We don’t tell the other kids at school that Santa is not real, but we don’t believe Santa’s real.

 

He’s a fun Christmas thing to do… a fun game to play at Christmas time… but he’s not real.

 

Then Patrick said, “you know what, I have proof that he’s real.”

 

… and I was like, “what’s your proof.”

 

And Patrick said, “I don’t remember, but I know I have proof.

 

So… whatever it was that happened in his head… he just knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that Santa Claus is real… even though we had never told him that he was real.

 

This was a good lesson for me…

 

A great reminder that our kids are small humans and they’re forming opinions and beliefs about their environment around them… the people that they’re hanging out with… We want to be able to control what they believe… but all we can do is guide them in the direction they should go. Some things they just have to discover for themselves.

 

Just a fun little story to show just you that kids are going to form their own opinions and beliefs about life… and we as their parents help form and guide them.

 

Do you have any Santa stories with your kids that you can share? Just right in the comments below and I would love to to hear those, and see what’s going on with you.

 

Go ahead and like and follow this page…

 

And be sure to catch my next story.

 

Have an amazing day and remember…

 

Your kids are small humans and they will form their own opinions and beliefs your job is just to guide them.
