Are you ready to become the heroine of your own story?
As the abused wife of an addict, and mother of a large family, I felt so incredibly alone. I was lost in my responsibilities, and I didn’t know who I was anymore. I had lost my muchness.
As I chose to vulnerably share my story I discovered that I am not alone and I don’t need a white knight to save me. I chose to reclaim myself and The Muchness Mama blog was born.
Using self-development, and self-care I have created a deep sense of self-love that has empowered me to write my own destiny. I want to help you to do the same.
It’s time to slay the monsters that keep you small and reclaim your own muchness. Come join my army or warrior women who know their worth and create the fairytale you deserve. You’re worth it.

You can’t love others until you love yourself. You can’t fully give yourself to motherhood when you don’t know who you are. You can’t be a true helpmeet to your husband if you aren’t able to be strong for yourself. You matter. You are important.
Who Am I?
I am a homeschooling mom of 9 kiddos struggling to remain sane amidst the chaos. I am the wife of an addict dealing with betrayal trauma induced PTSD. I am a former US Marine. Those are the things I lost myself in for so long. I am more than that.
I am a recovering emotional stuffer and chronic wallflower. I am learning to be unapologetically me instead of shrinking to fill someone else’s box. I love to talk and more importantly to teach and encourage. I am an artist. I am a writer. I am a bookworm and learn-it-all. I am a beloved daughter of God.
