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."

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.

My Grandparents’ Legacies

When I think of my grandparents' lives, I'm amazed at all their resilience, toughness, and lack of bitterness. I also see how easy I have had it and how blessed I am to learn from them and be loved by them.
