Proud to be raised in Burleson (shout out Kelly Clarkson), Jami was even the Elk mascot for her beloved Burleson High School. Jami's greatest pleasure comes from exploring the world and learning about all the beautifully unique people in it, so she started a business in the summer of 2021 taking groups of women around the world! Her business, Women Exploring the World has already taken women to experience Christmas markets in Bruges, Brussels; Paris, and London. They've also taken women to Costa Rica, Italy, Tanzania/Zanzibar, Scotland, and to Norway to see the Northern lights. Jami's greatest gift is her family, Corban, her beloved hubby; Jessy (born 2011); Maggy (born 2013); Lilly (born 2015); and Jude (born 2018). Besides running her travel business, Jami spends her days having adventures with her kids, homeschooling them part-time, assistant coaching PE, attempting to keep her brother and sister labradors out of trouble, keeping her son from killing their cat, and supporting her husband at his Edward Jones office downtown Fort Worth. Jami is a woman secure in God's love for her. He is her first love.
Enjoy each season because the next will be different but maybe no better.

Maybe sometimes we can get so deep in our dreaming we forget the point, especially us planners. 
University model schools can be a great schooling option.

University Model Schooling Is as Wonderful as It Is Difficult

This model of school gives us the great gift of spending more time together as a family. My kids still get a classroom experience where they work with others and learn from an experienced teacher, but they also get even more time working with our family.

Foster Care Is for Us All

Maybe we can't foster full time right now, but we can offer respite for an evening or a weekend every once in a while for some foster parents. Maybe we can't care for a foster children at this moment, but we can give our resources.
Weight is weird. The scale isn't always an honest teller of our health or even our efforts to change our body size.

Things I Wish I Could Have Told My 20-Year-Old Self About My Appearance

I've found the best option is to embrace and enjoy myself as I am today, while at the same time implementing any consistent changes we need to improve our health (spiritual, mental, emotional, relational, physical).
Why we aren't going to let our kids attend sleepovers.

Why We Say NO to Sleepovers

I have many memories of making poor choices with my friends during sleepovers at a MUCH higher rate than when we spent time together during the day.
There are products that give volume to women with long hair.

Two Great Volumizing Hair Products a Woman with “Booty Length” Hair Swears By

I mean, I'm a Texas girl. The last thing I want is hair with no volume, and my long hair is very heavy so it can get super weighed down.
