The Beautiful Deep About

Hi there! Wow, such an honor to have you here! I’m guessing that you desire to be a strong, brave and courageous mom? I love that. Me too.

You want to be the best mom possible but sometimes you feel a little bit weary? It’s hard and sometimes you feel like you cannot do anything right? I’ve so been there and I get it. I know the longing to be a great mom who enjoys life and handles it all with grace and beauty.

The good news is that God knows that longing too and He has the answers to help us get there. He calls us to be brave and gives us promises, weapons and His power to keep us from being weary. We just need to know what they are and how to walk in it.

Want to learn to be brave and fearless with me?

Let me introduce myself: I’m Kristin Lemus. Wife to a super great guy and mom of 6 kids (plus 1 in heaven). I’m a writer, speaker, and encourager of moms who find themselves weary. I’m passionate about women learning to walk in freedom and becoming all they were created to be.

I BELIEVE

You already are a good mom. Even if you don’t feel like it.

Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean you are doing it wrong

Moms, You are Powerful!

There are too many wear moms (and what we can do about it)

Can we be friends? If I knew you in person I’d want to find out your favorite drink and pop over and surprise you with it, some chocolate (of course) and a few special gifts to brighten your day. We’d talk for an hour and be laughing before we knew it. Moms need friends in their lives that invest in them and support them, especially during the hard times. Since I cannot stop by your place I want this site to do something similar by being a comfortable place where you can be encouraged and I can surprise you with gifts to bless you too {be sure to subscribe by email to get in on the gifts}.

A BIT MORE ABOUT ME

I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas.  I’m 36 & have been married to my best friend for 17 years.  He’s an amazing husband and father and we work hard to have a great marriage. We have a sweet little boy in heaven and 6 beautiful children that we serve here everyday.  Our children are ages 6 to 16 (with a set of twins in the mix).  We have one boy and five girls.

I wrote a whole post all about my big, amazing family. You can read that here if you’d like.

I have an obsession with black and white anything {photographs, stripes, dots, anything!}.  I love to read a good book, bake {gluten-free due to a wheat allergy}, take pictures of my kids and write.

I’m definitely an introvert and love one-on-one conversations that go deep. Speaking to groups of women, about becoming who they were created to be, thrills me to no end.

I have fallen, madly, deeply in love with my savior and I cannot help but share about this journey.  He pursued my heart, answered my prayers for freedom and now I feel deeply honored to serve others on their journey in discovering His love.  My heart beats pretty passionately for moms who are “in the thick of it” and need to be encouraged.

Some other places you can find me online are at Allume {a site for bloggers} where I am a contributing writer. I am also a co-host for The Declare Conference, which is a blogging conference for Christian women bloggers. Our desire is to equip bloggers to know God and make Him known.  I’ve written an eBook for moms who have lost a baby called Empty Arms, Hope-Filled Heart. Currently I’m working on something really BIG and exciting called Brave Moms.  You can read more about that here.

I cannot wait to meet you! You can always contact me or find me on twitter or Facebook.
