Hello, and thank you for taking the time to check out my blog!
I am a homeschooling mother of five children, wife to my husband Fernando, life-long learner, and messianic believer of the Bible. I also happen to be in (grateful) recovery.
On most days you will find me chasing the kids around, wiping dirty faces and hands, breastfeeding, giving hugs to my little munchkins, baking like crazy and somehow finding the time to blog a little bit about it all!
I am a birth doula, and pursuing my passions for health and midwifery. I am an advocate for normal birth and breastfeeding.
I try to shine a light on mental illness and addiction recovery, because too often people suffer alone and in shame. I am also a survivor of sexual abuse. I spent most of my teenage years and early adulthood in and out of psychiatric hospitals, and on and off the streets due to my addiction. I am often amazed at how I survived it all, and the incredible gift of life I have now! I don’t hide my past, but rather use it to bring hope and understanding to others.
That does not mean that I never struggle, I do, but I am in recovery and loving it!
