A New Blog for Middle Age Moms

by | May 16, 2017

Welcome to this brand new blog called My Fearless Grace! My Fearless Grace is all about you and me and how we are making positive lifestyle changes while we transition into new chapters of our lives. It’s about how we as 30, 40, and 50 something women can reinvent ourselves to be the best we can be and to become what we were meant to become.  We are wise, experienced, smart, talented, beautiful, wonderful women. We are also exhausted, worn down, longing for change, looking for some semblance of order in our chaotic world, and in general need of encouragement, fun, and support.

My Vision for My Fearless Grace

I want to set up My Fearless Grace as inspiration, empowerment, and encouragement for women in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. All women, of course, are most welcome here, but the content will be geared to those particular age groups. I envision my audience as women in the middle of raising their children, on the back side of child rearing, and those who are empty nesting.  We are women at the point of conversion and transition. We are at the precipice of understanding the need to take care ourselves so we can continue to care for others. We might be at a point of burn out but refuse to give in or give up. We are learners and action takers. We are at point of wanting to simplify our lives and our homes. We want to find peace and discover ourselves once again like when we were 20 something only this time with wisdom, experience, and a better sense of ourselves on our side. We know we are never too old to learn and try new things.

I want us to share our journey with each other. I have broken down this blog with specific areas of topics that will be shared with you. They are Family, Health, Home, Hobbies, Physical, Spiritual, and Wealth. These are all the areas that I am personally either exploring or struggling with and trying to find solutions that fit my needs. I plan to share my findings with you. Please feel free to share your findings and experience as well. I want us to all learn from each other.

A Bit About Me

You will find that I can often be blunt and to the point on certain topics. However, you will not see or hear any bad language. It doesn’t mean I don’t use it, but I won’t use it here. It really is one of those things I am working on. First and foremost I am a child of God, which by the way, didn’t happen until I was forty. This also brings me to my age. I am 48, yes ladies, I said that out loud, but only for you. Honestly, I don’t feel 48. In my mind I am 30 something but my horrible health habits have my body feeling much older. Another issue I am looking to resolve.

Some Family Info

I have three beautifully annoying children and a husband with nearly endless amounts of patience. We have been married 27 years summer of 2017.

Our oldest is currently 21 years old, still trying find himself, and lives in an apartment next door to us. Hey it’s cheap and clean.

 

Our middle child is currently 17 but will be 18 in June. He has one more year of high school so this coming school year will be quite hectic.

Our youngest and favorite (shhh don’t tell the boys) is our daughter who will be 16 this month she will be a Junior this fall. Honestly, she has been the easiest child ever. I mean that sincerely.

Real Life

I have some favorite hobbies such as sewing, reading, and archery to name a few. I work part-time as an office assistant for Brentwood Construction and I operate a sewing business from my home, Nelson Sewing. My husband works in the construction industry as a, get this, “manhole rehabilitation technician“. Don’t believe me check out his company at Rehab Systems, Inc. He has been doing that for over 20 years.

Did I mention we have couple of crazy dogs too. Rex is our lover boy, a black lab we adopted at the age of two and our baby Patches, an English Springer Spaniel we purchased in October. She is just six months old. Yes they are spoiled rotten. They are the official greeting committee if you come to my house.

So if you can’t tell we are a pretty typical semi-normal family. Really, what is normal anyway? As My Fearless Grace develops I hope we can develop meaningful relationships with each other in a supportive and non-judgmental forum of trust and laughter.
