    How to Pursue Your Blog & Business When You Are a Mom

    When you’re a mom, finding time for the basics — sleeping, eating, pooping — is hard. Sure, at one point in your life you had other aspirations than being “just a mom,” but let’s face it, most days any dreams you had fall LOW on the totem pole of priority. But finding time to pursue your dream doesn’t have to be impossible. I’m a mom of (almost) seven children, I write a regular blog, have 9 published books on Amazon, go to conferences, speak occasionally at women’s events and sometimes even exercise…sometimes. I also homeschool, play with my kids and find time to go on dates with my husband. But…

    Jesus Blogger – 31 Days of Blogging Like Jesus Would

    Jesus Blogger, comes out of a strong desire to allow Jesus to infiltrate every aspect of my life, especially my writing career. I started blogging on and off in 2007, but got really serious after the birth of my fifth child in 2012. Today, I’m a homeschooling mom of six, so doing ANYTHING is a challenge…especially sitting in front of the computer. It’s like my children have a radar that goes off as soon as my butt hits the black pleather chair that says, “Mommy’s on the computer…let’s go need something.” I don’t want my kids’ childhoods to be filled with memories of begging their mom to get off her…

    Jesus Blogger Day 1 – Know Your Roots

    Okay, so you’ve decided to become a blogger. Or maybe you’ve been a blogger since 2011 like I have been. But let’s start at the beginning anyway. Not the beginning of your blog journey…the beginning of the Bible. The book of Matthew gives us an overview of the super long genealogy of Jesus. It’s the part we all skip right? Abraham was the father of Isaac. Isaac was the father of Jacob. Blah. Blah. Blah. *Eyes glaze over* Why is this part included in the Bible? And what the heck does it have to do with blogging? I believe it has EVERYTHING to do with blogging. And it is definitely…

    Blog Post Template to Keep Readers Engaged, Increase Pageviews and Make Money

    All writer’s get in writing ruts. Bloggers (especially new bloggers) can get overwhelmed with the “right” and “wrong” way to write a blog post. Recently, I wrote some sales emails based on Elite Blog Academy‘s product launch and I was so thankful Ruth Sukoup provides a template for writing those emails. It made everything so much easier. And my sales emails were full of valuable information so that my readers didn’t feel like I was just selling them something! Her template also gave me the confidence to let my creative juices flow in a way I didn’t expect. Since I wasn’t worried about the flow of my email I was…

    If you want to start from the beginning of my 31-day challenge click here. I have a blogging story for you. And it starts with a car. A very old car. My grandma gave us her super low-mileage, but super old, 1994 Chevy Lumina about four years ago. It drives great, but it’s just old. To make matters worse, it had been sitting in her dusty barn for years!  Soon after we got it, the electronics started going bad. And I mean bad. The window motors don’t always work. At one point we had to slide across from the passenger side door because the driver’s side door wouldn’t open. But we…

As I stated previously in Day 3 of Jesus Blogger – (Only) Three Followers I have been performing poetry since I was 16. I produced a poetry CD at 21 that I wanted to give away for free as my “tithe” to the Lord for saving my butt from Hell, right? But then I had babies. Lots of babies. Over the course of a couple of years, I had given out roughly 200 of my CDs.…

When people asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up, my answer was always the same. “I’m going to be a writer.” After high school, I got accepted to the University of Texas’s Journalism school and was on my way to becoming the next Connie Chung or Erma Bombeck. (Funny combination, right?) Two semesters before I graduated I got offered a prestigious internship with Self Magazine. I spoke with the coordinator over the phone…
