Well hello there! I’m Jennifer!

Most mornings I wake up and wonder these four things:

  • How fast can I make a cup of coffee?
  • How long before the kids get up?
  • Where do all the socks from the laundry go?
  • How can I demonstrate God’s love today?

Yes, I love coffee, I’m a mom, a homemaker, and I long to live out God’s will for my life. In addition to these four facts, I’m a wife, blogger, author, and homeschooler.

My mission here at The Deliberate Mom is to live simply and parent intentionally. Will you join me? 

When I started this blog, I made many lists of what it should be named. As I deliberated, I realized that I, for the most part, am a deliberate person. I take my time, I ponder, I reflect, I negotiate, and when I act, it is with deliberate intent.

As a mother, I am especially deliberate. I’m intentional in how I raise my children. From the activities I do with them to the food I provide for them, much of what I do is with loving intention.

Most importantly, I’ve learned that being a deliberate mom is not about perfection but rather intention.
