One Mom who Matters
If you’ve found this site, then you are most likely a mom (or a dad) or mom-to-be.
I hope that this website/blog will be of some help to you! That’s why it’s here! 🙂
Who is this Mom?
My name is Lori and I am a mother of 5 Fantastic Kids, and wife to 1 Wonderful Hubby! Yes – I am a Christian, and I wouldn’t be alive today (literally!! – nor would my kids – obviously!) without the love of God in my life. I’m not ashamed to say it – and in fact, if you want to know more about it – I’m here! Just ask! (I also write more about God and His love on my other blog at drinkfromthedeep.org.) If you don’t want to know more (about God and His love), I hope and pray that you will still find my musings and ramblings about raising 5 kids, adoption, Asperger’s Syndrome, Video-game addiction, parenting, saving money, organization and, well . . . anything that Matters to Mothers and pertains to Mothering – a delight, as well as informative, helpful and encouraging!
Why I stated Mothering Matters
I started this blog years ago (on blogger) as a place to share things that I have learned or that mattered to me along this wonderful (but sometimes crazy and insane) adventure called Motherhood.
I was involved with MOPS (Mother’s Of PreSchoolers) at the time, and it was definitely a God-send in my life! As a mom with young kids – you definitely need a support system and an outlet – to connect with other moms who are going through and possibly struggling with the same things you are. MOPS was that place for me in those early years of parenting. But I also wanted to create a place to be able to reach out to others who were not in my MOPS group.
Now, my kids are all in school (5 kids in FIVE schools! Yes – call me crazy!), and my life is quite different. I hope to create a place here, for moms, where you can find other moms who are going through and possibly struggling with some of the same issues you are. (Dads – You are definitely welcome too! But just know – I’ll be writing from a mom’s perspective Hope that’s ok!)
It’s OK 2 Be U!
Ultimately – I want to be able to encourage all of you – that it’s OK 2 Be U! God designed and made you just the way you are . . . Unique!
He gave you the kids that He wanted you to have! You are the BEST mom for those kiddos! You truly are!
So . . . I hope you will join me in discovering just who you are, how you best parent, what your amazing skills and talents are, how you can influence not only your kids and spouse – but a generation and a world around you! I know . . . it’s a lot to think about! It sounds like a tough job. Well . . . it is! But I want to be here to support you!
You are doing a great job so far! Keep up the good work!
Let’s learn and grow together, challenge, support and encourage each other!
Will you join me? 🙂
I hope so.
Abundant Blessings!! Today – and every day!
ps . . . and Yes, I have to say it somewhere on my blog.
**Disclosure: You might find ads, links, reviews and recommendations throughout my blog. I do not get paid, reimbursed or enticed to say positive things about these things, but I might receive some money or free product for talking about it, placing or allowing it on my blog, if you click through the link, etc. (Most things I just talk about for free because I love or want to talk about them!) This helps keep the blog running (hosting, domain and other fees) – and eventually might buy me a cup of coffee from time to time! 🙂
I will never review or say positive things about something that I do not believe in. Honesty is HUGE for me – and I live my life as ethically, morally, honestly and lovingly as I can. I want to treat you as I would want to be treated. You (my awesome readers!) are 1st priority to me!
With that being said . . . I have allowed (for now . . . on a trial basis) Adsense ads to be on this site. I do not have full control over what ads you will see. If, however, you find an ad that seems inappropriate – please let me know! I definitely only want appropriate ads showing up (and can block certain url’s – so let me know what the url was!). The mere fact that the adsense ad is on the page, however, does not mean I endorse the company, product or ad. I may place other ads on this blog that I believe in and want to support.
Any questions – let me know!
