I have always wanted to be a full-time mom and do something small and creative on the side. Now that I am doing that I know it’s what I want to do, but without fear, guilt and perfectionism, which is something I struggle with.

I want to find joy in each day, in my family and in my career. How will I get there? By completely surrendering unto God and trusting Him to deal with my insecurities and my imperfections.
