Hi! I am Lisa.
I am the mom/wife/blogger to this blog. My family and I live in Chicago. I am a former career-driven mom who is now a stay at home mom.
I have three wonderful kids who each have an amazingly unique personality.
I am married to the most wonderful 6′ 8″ man ever; he is my world. Yup, you read that right my husband is super tall. : )
I enjoy traveling, crafting, dancing, cleaning, searching the internet, decorating my home, going on day trips (Adventures) with my kids, homeschooling little ones, anything Disney, and my Jeep.
I worked in the Human Resources profession for almost 10 years. From being an HR manager to specializing in employee benefits. It was through my career in HR that I discovered my passion to help others.
This blog came into existence after I decided to stay home and leave the corporate world to raise our children.
What motherhood has looked like for me
The journey of my motherhood is unique since I have been on both ends of the spectrum (single mom to now stay at home mom). In addition, I have almost 16 years between my oldest and youngest.
Each of my motherhood seasons has had its challenges. But through them, I have gained experience. Therefore I love to encourage other moms from my experience with love and true connection.
What does Your Mom Village stand for?
I started my blog for multiple reasons. As a way to do utilize my skills and knowledge. I love being creative and I wanted to help contribute to the family finances. But in my own way.
However, it was a calling for me to help other mothers. Especially those who decided to leave their career to become full-time homemakers.
I found that in order to be successful in transitioning from a career-driven mom to a stay at home there are many changes. And these changes create an opportunity for a mother to redefine herself.
To be your friend. Sharing advice from my chronicles of life. Sharing ideas and helping you make your stay at home mommy life a whole lot better.
My goal is to help find real solutions for stay at home moms and their family adventures.
I enjoy identifying products that can make a difference in a mom’s life by allowing her to simplify her life, live healthier and have a more productive motherhood.
But what you will find behind these ideas are words of encouragement and a true passion for energizing others.
