Hi there! My name is Kimberly and I am the main author here at Adventures in Mothering. I started this website back in 2004, with the primary goal of encouraging other moms in raising kids who love God and finding joy in the everyday. I have a burden, born out of hard times in my own life, to help other moms enjoy the journey of motherhood and over come the burden of “mom guilt”. In addition to the posts on this blog, I’ve written articles for other publications, as well as several books and ebooks which you can find in my store.
I’ve been a Christian since 1990, when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior while backpacking around Europe after college. I made several “detours” along my spiritual journey since that time, however our faithful God has always been there to catch me when I fall. Praise Him!
After a very brief courtship, I married my equally-prone-to-rash-decisions husband, Martin. We were married in an exciting wedding ceremony that included, among other things, me lighting my veil on fire with the unity candle.Through various trials and tribulations, including several high risk pregnancies, five closely spaced children, backsliding, family members actively working against our marriage and Christian walk, and the usual junk, we’ve somehow made it to a point where we can truly say we’re “happily married”. We’ve also learned what that whole
For better or For worse; For richer or For poorer; In sickness and in Health
thing really is all about.
We have five amazing, homeschooled children who are all in their teen years, and who each love and serve the Lord — Ruth, Judah, Anastasia, Esther, and Isobel.
