Interactive MoM deals with everything that is
involved in being a wife and mom/parent with a particular focus on family life,
including pregnancy, labor & delivery (babies, including breastfeeding), Rearing
children from start to finish...(post teen-age years, having had teen-agers in
the house for the past 24 years continuously,
and still counting); creating and taking care of a home including decorating;
country crafts for all occasions; family fun and games; sharing secret recipes
(a lot of which are suitable for Diabetics, since my husband is one); cleaning
and organizational tips; gardening including herbs and spices; food
storage and emergency preparedness; stress management in everyday life; and
surviving tough times such as coping with the death of a child; taking care of
an aged parent or grandparent, sharing great money saving deals (MoM is THE
BARGAIN SHOPPER); ideas for working from home (keep Mom home so she can be a
MOM); and what would life be without HOLIDAYS such as Christmas, Valentines,
Easter etc. These are the times that keep families close and create memories!!
And most importantly, teaching and living strong moral values and virtues. These
are the things that give life meaning and brings us closer to our Father in
Heaven who loves us, making Him a part of our families!!
I produce this
publication by virtue of being a fully experienced MoM (Mother of Many) who
is an expert in the field of being a MoM. This is about what I have learned and
experienced by being a MoM, over a huge spectrum of subjects and circumstances.
These include motherhood, parenthood, womanhood, wifehood, personal value and
just keep it all together. All the information found here is that which I have
found true and helpful in my own experience. None of this is intended to
represent medical, psychological or any other professional advice. I am simply
sharing 37 continuous years of rare and unique experience. I hope (and I am
confident) that you will find the REAL expertise herein, helpful. You may,
of course, use whatever information contained to help improve your own family
lifestyle, but not sell to others.
Most experts in this field have
the title of "expert" by virtue of their education and through their past &
present observations of children, not through the "hands on" experience that I
possess. I am an expert by virtue of actual live-in, day-to-day, twenty-four
hours per day contact with children. I am the mother of 13 children, grandmother
of 13 sweet children ...... But we are empty nesters now, with only 2 kids still
living at home. Life is still busy with 2 active teenagers.
We love them ALL!!
We May not have it all together, but together we have
"We need more people who believe in strong values and
more people who actually live those values they say they believe
"Live so that those who know you, but don't know
Him (God), want to know Him because they know you"
"I will have the moral courage
to make my actions consistent with my knowledge of
right and wrong"
