I am Mamie. (Pronounced May-Me). Yep, this is my real name. It is not short for anything. I’m a 5’2, big dreaming, heel wearing, book reading, Jesus lovin’, hug giving (I try to ask first), chocolate eating, strategic thinking lady. When I am not at home trying my hand at gardening, you can often find me strolling down the aisles of Michael’s planning my next creative adventure or buying more books (you can never have to many books).
As a military wife and a mom to sons, I am living a life that I never knew I could have-but GOD. He already had a plan that was greater than anything I could ever imagine.
Accepting Christ changed EVERYTHING.
In Him, I was given love, grace, forgiveness and restoration. I was not a mistake. My journey was not in vain. He already saw my brokenness and still called me beloved, chosen, and daughter. It was from this revelation that I knew I needed to be more proactive in sowing into the lives of others. This began my love for developing mentoring relationships both professionally and personally. From high school teenage girls to novice teachers, sowing into the next generation became a part of who I am.
During the pregnancy and birth of our third son, moving to a new city, enduring another deployment, and not working for the first time as an adult, life was HARD.
I was overwhelmed and exhausted all the time.
I needed change.
During this time at home, I learned to break my bad habits of striving to do more and be more. I made up my mind to do less striving and more living in my purpose on purpose.
Cultivating a heart of gratitude along with practical application of God’s word, helped me to thrive in my ministry as a wife, mother, and more.
Right away, I knew I wanted to create space where women could talk about the challenging spaces of their purpose while learning how to live more in the life God designed for them.
I am passionate about helping other women embrace their identity, fulfill their purpose in Christ, and celebrate the moments along the way. Whether in the classroom as an educator, serving in my local church, connecting with stay-at-home moms, or walking out this military life with other military wives, I strive to create a safe place where other women realize they are not alone. From the joyful, “gotta tell everyone moments” to the ugly, “I can’t make it through” moments, WE ARE NOT ALONE.
journey is not one of perfection, but rather one of progress.
In this space, I pray you would be encouraged, laugh a little and gain some practical steps to walk out your journey.
So grab your cup of coffee, get comfy, and let’s chat!
