About the Mamas

We are about encouraging all mamas to identify, embrace, and walk confidently in their gifts, no matter how different the wrapping may appear. This is a place to share ideas, insights, and real-life stories on parenting, nutrition, marriage, faith, and more.

Jaclyn is your typical oldest child: bossy but with the best intentions. She’s married to Francis, and the stay-at-home-mother of Princess (6), Music Man (5), Baby Belle (3), and Pooter (6 months). She has serious attention span issues when it comes to hobbies and housework, perhaps because both are fueled by too much caffeine and too much Motown. Her door is always open, but she just can’t promise you won’t trip over a toy on your way in.
