An Unexpected, Spontaneous Family Day

By Emily McClements, Contributing Writer As I sat down to write this day in the life post, I thought: “This was not really a ‘typical’ day for us, but, honestly, who has typical or normal days when you have little kids at home?!” Am I right?! This was a Monday–a day that turned out much differently then I had originally expected but became so much more than I could have even planned for. Keeping an openness and spontaneity is so important to my husband and […]

A Day in the Life of Natalie: a Work-at-Home, Homeschooling Mom of Nine

By Natalie, Contributing Writer It’s Monday, September 9, 2013. This is week two of school. Ready. Set. GO! 6:30 a.m. I roll out of bed, shower, dress, throw in a load of laundry, bring up a tray of cured soap (I own and operate Apple Valley Natural Soap), grab some coffee and sit down in my “office” (a re-purposed family room with three walls) for some time with the Creator. I’m just finishing up a powerful study in Ephesians using Wendy Alsup’s Bible study By […]

A Day in The Life of A Brand New Stay At Home Mama

By Diana, Contributing Writer Hi! I’m Diana from My Humble Kitchen. I’m a brand new, full-time, stay-at-home mama. I’m just smitten to be able to write that, and I am looking forward to the day when I am able to shake someone’s hand and confidently tell them that my full-time career is home educating my children and serving my family. It was a long road traveled to get here. My husband and I worked on smashing our debt, living simply and, through it all, finding joy […]

A Day in the Life: Kate, a Homeschooling WAHM of 4

By Kate Tietje, Contributing Writer These posts are always so fun — I love getting a peek into others’ lives!  I hope you’re enjoying it, too! I wrote a similar post last year, but my kids were younger, I had fewer of them (our fourth joined us this past March) and my business wasn’t as busy.  Our life looks a bit different now! Where We Are As I mentioned, I have four kids.  They are 5 1/2, 4, 2 and 6 months.  My oldest is […]

A Day in the Life of a Pilot’s Wife (With Three Kids Under Five)

By Beth, Contributing Writer It’s a typical Wednesday night, and I’m about to record for you a typical day in my house. Kidding! Silly readers – there’s no such thing as typical when you’re married to a pilot, have 3 kids (sometimes 4), work part-time from home, write a blog, and are just waking up from five years of massive sleep deprivation. Oy vey. Friends – this “day-in-the-life” thing is… shall we say… a huge challenge for me. I swing wildly between feeling like supermom […]

Day in the Life: Kresha, a Busy, Work-at-Home Mom

By Kresha, Contributing Writer Hi, I’m Kresha. I’m the mom of three children – a 7-year-old girl, a 3-year-old boy, and a 20-month-old boy, whom you’ll meet through this post. I wish I could say what is written below is not a typical day, but unfortunately I can’t. On this particular day, there were no raw milk runs, no trips to the thrift store, no projects at the church, or visits with friends, all of which are other “regular” activities in our life, but life […]

Day in the Life: Rachel (Waiting for God’s Plan)

Written by Rachel, Contributing Writer I remember last year I shared my day with you; it was much different than a day of this year. I was very busy, and–not to say I am not now–it was just a different kind of busy. Last year I told you that “I went from being a stay-at-home mom to a working mom and was then a part-time working mom with the intentions of being a stay-at-home mom once again” and guess what??? With much patience, prayer and waiting, God […]

A Day in the Life: Jessica, Mom of Two (4 and 2)

Written by Jessica Smarrt, Contributing Writer Hi! I’m Jessica! I’m a stay-at-home mommy to two boys, four and two. I’m a little nervous about this post. I wish I were homeschooling ten kids and fermenting kombucha in my free time, but I’m not there (yet). Yet life is still busy and full. Hope you enjoy a glimpse into our day! 6:45: The boys awake. I say my prayers in bed and try to stay alert. I know, I know…I should get up and have coffee first, […]
