Hey, I’m Angie. I’m a writer, homeschooler, and mom to three. I started this website a few years ago to give voice to my own experiences as a mother – the joyful, mundane, and pure insanity parts of it. I wanted to encourage mothers to stop striving for unreasonable goals and start giving themselves more grace for the messy, refining journey they were on.
Along the way, I discovered that God had some different plans for my writing. I was on my own journey — trailblazing through the paralyzing anxiety and fears I had battled since childhood. Over the past three years, through some incredibly challenging seasons, I have learned how to be free of all of that, how to be bolder. And naturally, I have to write about it.
My great passion is to plant even the tiniest seed of hope for women who feel stuck, disempowered, or fearful — whether it’s in work, relationships, or motherhood — that there really is another way of being in the world, and it’s attainable.
This might be the bravest journey I’ve taken so far. But I’m here for it. And I hope we can connect and walk it out together.
My husband and I live with our three daughters in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. I’m originally from Texas and attended Texas A&M, where I studied journalism.
I have written for an international newspaper, high tech companies, and non-profits. I have also homeschooled my kids for 10 years, and my hobbies include songwriting, reading, and surfing.
In addition to faith and motherhood, I’m likely to talk your ear off about adoption, autism spectrum and aspergers, learning disabilities (dyslexia & ADHD).
