Who I Am

I am a purposeful mom on a journey to encourage other moms and women to approach the families God has given them with purpose and intention.

I grew up as a pastor’s daughter. This is where I learned the importance of thinking about each action I took and what the repercussions could be. Without me realizing it, my parents were already teaching me to be purposeful and intentional.

About Suzette

I grew up with a “purposeful mom” before the term was even a “thing”, and I knew I wanted to be a woman who mothered with purpose when the time came. I took the lessons I learned from my mother and applied them to every aspect of my life.

I taught for 11 years at private Christian schools and loved every moment. I married my sweetheart in July 2004. My mom passed away in 2008, two weeks before the birth of my daughter, her first grandchild. I decided that with God’s help I would be a purposeful mother with my daughter (13 years old) and later my son (10 years old). Between 2014 and the beginning of 2016 I began working part-time at my church as the Interim Children’s Ministry Director, and from 2018 to the present I work part-time as an online teacher. As a full-time wife and mother, I want to encourage moms of every age (grandMOMS and aunts included) to be purposeful in all they do.

My hobbies include reading, blogging, and making family memory music montages.

I previously blogged at The Joy of Homemaking for 5 years.
