My husband and I became entrepreneurs shortly after marriage. We have experienced the joys and challenges of owning our own businesses, and continue to press on in the hopes of providing work for our children one day. We used to own a Cabinet Shop, but moved on to a Lawn Care Business after my husband was spending many hours at the shop and not at home! I own my own business online where I sell custom made Maternity and Women’s Skirts, and also sell Lilla Rose Flexi Hair Clips. Our family teases us that they never know what we will come up with next! We feel blessed that God continues to send us work, so we press on!

Why do you blog?
I started blogging mainly to help promote my business and blog about modesty. It quickly grew into doing product reviews and giveaways of items that interest homeschool families, writing about homeschooling and trying to encourage other homeschooling Moms. Normally I blog several times a week.

The Modest Mom
Why do you homeschool?
I can’t imagine doing anything other than homeschooling my children! I am extremely blessed because I was homeschooled my whole life, and every day I am so grateful that my Mother gave of herself for so many years to homeschool my older sister, brother, and I. She became sick with Lupus during my 5th year of school, but she was determined to keep going and poured herself into educating her last child (which was me!). I spent my high school years learning from a Charlotte Mason method, and that is how I am attempting to teach my own children. My Mother died this past summer (June of 2010) and it has made me even more determined to pass on the legacy she gave me to my own children. Homeschooling is harder than I thought it would be with four children 7 and under, but through God’s grace and the support of my wonderful husband we press on day after day!
