So, here it goes…

My absolute favorite blog is Your Modern Family by Becky Mansfield. She is a sweet mom of four who blogs on everything from marriage to potty training. Her posts are well-written, captivating and engaging. The thing that I love the most about Becky is that each person matters to her. I actually emailed her with some blogging questions, fully expecting never to hear back. I mean, she has HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of followers. Not only did she write back to me, she wrote back the same day. Becky answered my questions and encouraged me in my blogging. Her email was so down-to-earth I felt like I had known her forever. She is definitely a blogger I want to emulate!

  1. My favorite vacation was a tour around Italy.
  2. My husband and I met playing flag football.
  3. On our first date, we jumped a 6ft fence and ate at a hole-in-the-wall seafood joint. It was only the beginning of all of our crazy adventures.
  4. I always wanted a large family but after three pregnancies, I never EVER want to be pregnant again. Maybe we will adopt one day?? Maybe.
  5. I bite my nails. It’s a gross habit.
  6. If education didn’t cost so much money, I’d be in school my whole life. I love school.
  7. My favorite place to be is home.
  8. I love being comfortable. The first thing I do when I get home is put on yoga pants or comfy shorts. Ugh, don’t even get me started on bras.
  9. I have Von Willebrand’s Disease, which means I am missing some of the Von Willebrand’s factor (clotting factor) in my blood. So when I bleed, I bleed a lot and for a long time.
  10. I’ve lived in 5 states (Rhode Island, Florida, South Carolina, Illinois, and Texas)
  • What is the most extreme thing you’ve ever done?

I’m really not much of an “extreme” person. I’ve never jumped out of an airplane or bungee-jumped off a cliff. Honestly, the most extreme thing I’ve ever done is deliver a 9lb baby without an epidural or any pain medication. Haha. I think most moms would agree, labor/delivery is pretty extreme.

  • If you could give someone $1,000,000, who would you give it to?  Why?

Hmmm…that’s a good question! I would give it to Amazima Ministries, an organization that lives out the mission of Jesus and empowers and loves on the people of Uganda. I have a heart for mission and if I had the money to support a mission this would be top of my list!

  •  Apple or Samsung


  • Name the top 3 beaches you’ve ever visited.

I love any beach that isn’t crowded!

  • When do you find time to blog?

Whenever I can! I usually find three nights a week that I can blog after the kids go to bed. My husband often has meetings at night so I try to blog on those nights. Sometimes I will set my alarm crazy early and blog in the morning too. I’m also constantly jotting down notes/ideas throughout the day in my phone or on random pieces of paper.

  • If you could have dinner with anyone past or present, who would it be?

I’d love to sit down with Pope Francis. That guy is awesome.

  • Who are you writing your blog for?

I’m writing devotions for moms, but really for anyone who loves the Lord and wants to grow in their faith. I’m also writing for myself. It brings me joy and keeps challenging me.

  • What was the inspiration for the name of your blog?

I don’t know when I thought of this name or how I came up with it. But I always thought that if I wrote a blog it would be called “Faith+Motherhood”. I like it because it’s simple.

  • What’s your quote you live by?

JOY! (Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last)

  • Money or fame

Definitely, money. It would be nice to know that we could pay off our student loan debt and help others in need.
