About Me

blog pictureHi there!  I’m Jennifer.

You know how it is to wake up and feel exhausted and overwhelmed before your day even starts?

Then, you go throughout your day, doing the best you can to keep your head above water, continually feeling as though you’re chasing after your day rather than the other way around.

Finally, at the end of the day, you look back on your day and feel like you didn’t get anything done that you meant to get done, that the things you did get done you were a complete failure at, and the one thing you really want is a great big do-over on your day.

Can you relate to this at all?

As a busy mom of 8 from 15 down to 8 months, I know exactly how life can get the better of you as it threatens to get the better of me, too. Yet with a family of my size, I have had to master systems, schedules, budgets and so much more in order to survive – and even thrive!

Speaking of budgets, can you even imagine what it costs to feed a family of my size? Would you believe me if I told you that I only spend $350 a month on groceries? Yep, like I said, I have had to master these things in order to survive. You can actually read about that grocery budget HERE.

And do you know what else? My husband and I are just about to become debt-free, too. You can read more about our journey to becoming debt-free HERE. Before you think that we are able to do this because we inherited money or have high-paying jobs, let me tell you, we don’t. Actually, I’ve been supporting my family on my own with this blog right here for quite some time. You can even learn more about how I do that HERE.

Here at the Intentional Mom, I am all about helping women and moms just like YOU create personalized solutions and systems to feel accomplished, content, and fulfilled at the end of the day.

This blog was born after random thoughts and personal journal entries became something I referenced or even shared when helping friends who were struggling with life and felt alone in the struggles that are common among so many of us. It is always nice to know that you are not alone, and it is reassuring to know that others struggle with the same issues as you do while having someone to brainstorm with in how to best live with some of these common issues.

In addition to spending time with my family, writing, and sweating it out at the gym, I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking, and tackling my next organizing project.  I’d love for you to get to know me better, and I would like to learn a little about you, too. Welcome, grab a cup of coffee or a glass of water, and join me in the journey to live a more intentional life.
