You’re here. Wow. Such an honor. You want 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 been there too. Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean you are doing it wrong. God knows everything it takes to be a mom and still He tells us to be strong, courageous, to not fear and to believe that He is always with us (Joshua 1:9). It’s like He knows something that we don’t or haven’t yet discovered. His heart for us is to equip us, teach us how to fight the lies that keep us down, and help us learn how to rest in Him. I believe that we can trust Him and take Him at His Word.
Want to learn to be brave and fearless with me?
First let me introduce myself: I’m Kristin Lemus. Wife to a 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.
You already are a good mom. Even if you don’t feel like it.
There’s a lot of encouragement for moms out there, which is great, but does it really change anything? A lot of it leaves me feeling like I lack the know-how to get to the same place or really change anything. My goal on this site is to help you become the best mom you can be by sharing truth and giving you practical steps to take.
If I knew you in person I’d want to find out your favorite drink and pop over and surprise you with 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.
A FEW MORE THINGS 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’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 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 called Brave Moms. You can read more about that here.
