Proud to be raised in Burleson (shout out Kelly Clarkson!), Jami was even the Elk mascot for her beloved BHS. Jami's greatest joy comes from exploring the world and learning about all the beautifully unique people in it, so after graduating from Dallas Baptist University, Jami moved to Beirut, Lebanon where she met her wonderful husband, Corban. They now live in Fort Worth with their four children, Jessy (2011), Maggy (2013), Lilly (2015), and Jude (2018). Jami spends her days having adventures with her girls, homeschooling part-time, attempting to keep her brother and sister labradors out of trouble, occasionally working along side her husband at his Edward Jones office, and blessing other women in whatever ways arise. Jami lives by "Love God and love others" and "laughter is the best medicine."
Jackie and Rachel Robinson showed strength during tough times in baseball.

I Want to Be a Jackie and Rachel Robinson

Jackie and Rachel's story encourages me to work to improve my own character and inner strength. Maybe in some area of my life I won't be the best, but maybe I can be the one whose character can handle suffering for the benefit of many others.
A man selling children's toys on the side of the road makes one mom sad.

The Man I Met Selling His Children’s Toys

I don't know what his life situation is that he is trying to sell all these items on the side of the road. I don't know if he had to pry these toys from his children's hands and walk out the door as they cried. I don't know if he's selling his only can of shaving cream so he can buy food. I don't know if he has any support or help to make it through whatever crisis he may be experiencing.
The daily grind of motherhood is tough.

When the Daily Kid Grind Annoys You

My one year old dropped raisins all over the floor. I hate cleaning the floor and I kept walking past these raisins and thinking how much I didn't want to clean them up.
Are lash extensions worth the hassle and price?

Are Lash Extensions Worth It?

I love having my lash extensions because I feel so much more feminine and put together with them on. BUT eyelash beauty comes with a high price (and I'm not just talking $$).
Working as a waitress can teach valuable lessons and skills for mothers.

Working in a Restaurant Made Me a Better Mom

Restaurant work has helped me be able to handle intense days. No matter how crazy my days are with my kids, it doesn't compare to the immediate pressure I felt working on a busy night in a restaurant.

10 Thankfulness Activities for Kids

Challenge your child to think of anyone they could share something with who may have less in some way than them. Maybe they can help an older neighbor bag a bag of leaves, or pick out some new toys to buy for Cook Children's Hospital, make some food or a card for a friend who has been sick or make a bag of goodies to hand someone who is experiencing homelessness.

You Won’t Embarrass Me

I am committed to letting my kids know that they can NOT and will NOT embarrass me. They will suck at some things. They will make mistakes. They will do stuff that I find reckless or stupid. But I will always be proud to be on their team.
