My name is Wendy Robinette!
I am a work from home mom, homeschooling two tween girls and a toddler, helping moms find balance in motherhood, careers, and the rest of life’s challenges. I am a Christ follower, fueled by a little bit of coffee, Stress Away essential oil, and a lot of Jesus!
After living in Nashville, TN for over twenty years where I learned to balance marriage, homeschool, and motherhood while also running an extremely successful wedding photography business, I moved back home to Natchitoches, La to be closer to my father and our family farm. Several years after this move my husband Jason and I found ourselves in the middle of an adoption of a precious nine year old little girl, who by a series of God orchestrated events began living with us after being abandoned by her mother and later finding her father deceased.
Adoption was NEVER on our radar, but God obviously had other plans for us. We are still in the process of this adoption, and it has definitely been an emotional rollercoaster. This precious little girl, who is very aware of her losses and her pain, deserves a forever family that loves her. It is through this adoption also that I have learned exactly why God brought me to this season.
Jason and I now live just outside of Natchitoches, Louisiana where I spend my days homeschooling our girls and blogging while also running my own business from home as a wedding and portrait photographer. (#mompreneur) I am learning to can vegetables and make jelly. Moving from a big city to a small rural community 700 miles away from home was scary, but I have embraced the life of a country girl. I have to admit though… I have not mastered the art of growing a vegetable garden, but at least I have managed to keep our three bunny rabbits alive. Next I will try chickens!
I believe that my biggest ministry is my family, and I believe that God led me to this season for a reason. This season of my life is all about maintaining a happy, healthy home, growing in my faith, homeschooling my girls, adoption, being intentional about cultivating their hearts, and embracing a minimalist lifestyle… all while working from home at the same time. Finding the balance to get ALL THE THINGS done can be challenging. It can sometimes leave you feeling like a failure! I find it soul cleansing and refreshing every time I hear from other moms who are finding balance, and I am sharing much of what I discover on this journey right here on this Christian Mom Lifestyle Blog.
My Better Half!
Jason happens to be the sweetest, most gentle soul I’ve ever met… despite his big bearded tough guy appearance. He is my big teddy bear and I am so blessed to have him by my side! I love this man’s heart with every single breath I have. He works A LOT of hours in order to provide for our family so that I may have the freedom to stay home with our children and homeschool. He is my biggest encourager and supporter.
