Welcome to Smart Living Mama
Hey there, mama! Welcome to the blog! I’m Kristine. I’m a wife, mother, daughter, sister, homeschooling mama, online ESL teacher, writer, blogger, and most importantly, a daughter of the one true King. If you’d like to get to know me better, you can read a little more about me and my story here.
I’m thrilled that you’re here!
I am so honored and ecstatic that you’ve decided to take some time out of your busy day to visit me in my little corner of the web. I know firsthand how precious time is as a stay-at-home mom with little kids underfoot, so I will try my best to make this introduction relatively short and sweet! 🙂
You’re busy, right? And a bit overwhelmed?
I hear you.
You’ve got your hands full with the many responsibilities of being a mom, wife, homemaker, and more. You’re juggling meals, cleaning up after the kids, doing what seems like endless loads of laundry, and you’re finding it extremely hard to do so many things while making sure you’re doing them all well.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been searching for a way to make things a bit easier. To simplify and prioritize the things that really do matter. To create margin in your life.
I was once where you are now — feeling totally overwhelmed and helpless. As though I was on this hamster wheel of never-ending to-do’s and couldn’t get off for even a moment.
I get it, mama. I so get it.
But things changed for me when I gave it all to God and allowed myself a little bit of grace.
Do you need to give yourself a bit of grace in this season? I’m guessing that you do, and I think that this post may help you.
So what can you find here at Smart Living Mama?
My passion is to help encourage other mamas in this season of motherhood; to help them know they are abundantly loved by God – even in their blessed yet messy life – and to help them grow both in their walk with God and in their ministry as a wife and mother.
I write about the following topics here on the blog:
My mission here at Smart Living Mama is to share with other tired, overwhelmed mamas the tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years to living a more simple, intentional, and productive life. The lessons I’ve learned – through trial and error – have helped shaped my life into a more fulfilling one, and my desire is to help you cultivate a blessed and less-stressed life as well.
I’ll help you learn how to lean into God during each season of motherhood. To help you realize that you’re not alone in this journey. To offer tips and encouragement from things that have helped me. And just to be your online mama friend who has been where you are and understands the ups and downs of motherhood.
I am delighted and honored that you’ve chosen to spend some time here at Smart Living Mama. I hope you will join me on this journey, and I pray my blog is a blessing to you, sweet mama! Thanks so much for visiting, and I hope you stay awhile!
