Mama’s Coffee Shop was created because I saw a need to help other Work at home, (and sometimes) homeschool mamas like me. But as the days have gone by I have come to the realization that this mama needs to make more of the time God has granted me with. The idea of helping is still a huge part of what I do. I now feel lead to help with more than one aspect of being a mama.
Since Christ is a huge part of who I am, I am forever trying to be a better wife and mama through Him. I have been blessed with the gift of technology and, by faith, I am stepping out of my little box to apply my thoughts, ideas, blessings and more to you.
I am a lover of books. You will see a lot about the books I have read, I want to read, read to and shared with the kids here on this blog.
As you might have gathered, I am a lover of coffee too. Well, pretty much cafffeine in general, in the form of a good cup of coffee or southern sweet tea. I would not have survived as long as I have if I didn’t have access to one or both of these drinks, I’m sure of it.
I am the founder of GROUNDED Ministry. The goal of the GROUNDED Ministry, is to encourage you to rest in your faith, to become so deeply rooted and grounded in Him that you can weather any storm that comes your way in life.
I pray you are blessed by being here and that you find exactly what you need.
I am married to my best friend and am trying my best to be the “help-meet” (wife) God created me to be.
My hubby is a busy man with his work. He has a job that takes him on the road for days at a time. It is a hard way to keep a marriage in good shape but with prayer and sacrifice we see great changes coming about.
Silvio is my whole world and without him I would not be who I am today. He is my encourager, the guy I bounce ideas off of, he makes me more confident, and he is without question my number one favorite comedian. I see us many years down the road laughing and carrying on, just like we do today.
He loves to hunt, research ideas, build in his garage (he can build just about anything!), sleep, eat good food and the occasional pieces of chocolate, and watch TV. He is a well rounded guy, if I do say so myself!
We have, by grace & faith, been home schooling since 2006 and we have just begun our 16th year! Simply amazing. A miracle that has been full of prayer and grace!
Isaiah is 18 years old and with all teenagers, he thinks he (still) knows everything. We are on a daily quest to better our relationship and prayerfully seeking out the best way to grow as a mama and grown son. As our first homeschool graduate we are beyond proud of the man he is becoming.
He is a fun loving young man that still has a deep love for reading and he is a Master of all things history related. He likes to hunt, he played baseball for years, and is my all around trivia buff.
He is our resident movie, music, podcasting extraordinaire, resident voice impersonator, secret protector of hearts, hard working, savior of the hopeless and helpless, and all around gentle (most of the time) giant warrior.
There is no one like him in the world and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We believe that God has some grand plans for this amazing young man and we cannot wait to see what those plans might be!
Ana is 15 years old and stretching and growing to find her way in this crazy world. She is (by God’s design) the middle child, only girl, between “bookend” brothers. This is sometimes an item of contention that we are continually praying about. Because we all know that brothers can sometimes cause issues for sisters.
She is a lover of the written word also and has a secret desire to be French! She loved Fancy Nancy when she was much younger, is a tomboy, has a heart for all things furry (large or small – big cats in particular), and loves to care for others.
I know that she is destinted to be a great mama herself one day, even if right now she says she’s never getting married or having children.
Within the last few years her creative and artistic skills have truly come to light. She has developed a love of painting and drawing, she sketches, she crafts, and she can crochet just about anything.
I am often in awe of this young girl’s abilites and we are so extrememly blessed that God allowed us to “parent” her and raise her in the admonition of the Lord. she is an amazingly precious gift that God has placed in my life.
Joseph is 12 years old and he is the light of our world. He can crack a joke at a moments notice and he is under constant prayer for that very reason. He has a knack for laughter at the worst times, LOL He is still learning that being the youngest does not give him certain privileges and that being the “bookend” brother is extremely hard work.
This young man can soothe your soul in a short amount of time with his sweet smile and his all encompassing hugs. His love for the Lord is deep and he understands more about Christ at his age than I did and I know the Lord has incredible plans for this one.
He is a Master LEGO builder and out of all of our children the one that plays the best when alone. He is a math whiz (even though he loathes doing the work). His imagination is amazing and he is a true storyteller. (I have no idea where that came from, lol).
He loves animals, he has a quick temper, he loves dirt and mud, and will fly from the nest way sooner than this mama would prefer.
I look forward to giving you great information that I have gathered from around the web, from other mamas just like you and me. The newest home schooling resources, encouraging words, blessings from The Word of God.
I wish to cover all aspects of being a Godly wife and mama. I pray that I will encourage you to succeed in your walk with the Lord, your marriage and raising those precious children.
So be on the look out for great articles from some of the best sources I can find.
