This week’s #MondaysMom is Michelle Marie Morrison. She was nominated by her sister, Camille Gabel who writes: Michelle became a mom only 5 years ago to her step-son Caleb. Adjusting from being single to being married and a step-mom of a tween is not easy! But Michelle jumped in with both feet and has been an amazing mom to Caleb. Step-parenting is hard and Michelle has handled the challenges of raising a son as a “bonus” mom with love and understanding.

She has dedicated her professional life by serving kids as an ABA therapist for kids with autism, to foster care case manager and now has transitioned to a foster care provider. She brings joy to those she’s around.”

This week’s #MondaysMom is Sarah Watson Swan.

Sarah lovingly cares for her 16-year-old nephew by providing a safe and secure environment in which to grow; she always takes her 2-year-old daughter on outdoor experiences (and her daughter loves it, too), and they are expecting their newest baby in June of this year!

Sarah has such an adventurous spirit, shares her gifts of caring for others freely, and is an inspiration to take your kids along on any kind of outdoor exploration!

Today’s #MondaysMom is Natalie Miller, my Sister-In-Love! Natalie and my brother, Chris have been married for over 20 years and have three beautiful children!

Natalie is a dedicated wife, mother, and Physician’s Assistant who (as her 19-year-old daughter says) “works her butt off and still manages to be the best mama out there.” Whenever we get to spend time together, I see Natalie caring a great deal about making sure her children have what they need and want, giving them experiences and memories, all with strong roots in what Jesus alone has done for us!

It’s time for #MondaysMom to encourage other moms just doing their thing! This week, we celebrate Monica Ashley who is an amazing #girlmom to a 13, 11, and 5 year old!

Monica works hard to meet the physical, mental and emotional needs of her girls – especially during this crazy pandemic! She has a beautiful relationship with each of her daughters as they feel comfortable going to her with whatever is on their mind.
Monica puts God first #momswholovejesus and is teaching her girls to do the same through God’s word and prayer. Finally, but equally as important, she is a loyal, loving, and generous wife, daughter, sister, auntie and friend to many!

February 15 , 2021

Another week, another Mom to encourage!
Let’s hear it for this week’s #MondaysMom – Camille Gable at Growing Up Gabel!

Camille and Mitch (her husband of 17 years) homeschool two teen/pre-teens while working inside/outside the home on a multitude of communication projects. She works hard to make sure Ella and Miles have opportunities to connect with other kids while honing their individual gifts and talents. Her 14 year old daughter says: “My mom has a lot of work to do but she still manages to pick me up from dance and help Miles with school – I don’t need as much help. She also cooks for us a lot, which is really nice. She’s super hardworking.” I think that says it all!

February 8 , 2021

It’s Monday! Another week to encourage another mom who is just “doing her thing,” loving her kids, and loving others! This week’s #MondaysMom is Courtney Williams.

Courtney is a single mom of three teen/pre-teens whom she homeschools, leads closer to Christ, and makes sure they can experience as much of the world around them as possible. For Courtney, her children always come first, and yet she works tirelessly making sure the Las Vegas community is reached with the love of Jesus while helping find resources to meet their physical needs as well. She is an inspiration to her kids as well as to those around her. Way to go, Courtney, we celebrate YOU!

January 18, 2021

This week’s #MondaysMom was nominated by Jocelyn Hall who writes:
“I want to nominate Blair Britt Muller for Monday’s Mom. This family moved from Nevada to North Carolina to Belgium during a pandemic with a 6 month old, a 3 year old and a 4 year old. Belgium has been locked down, so that is making it a bit challenging to get a home together, in an another country (can you say LOTS of park days?!?).

However, Blair is always trying her best to take care of her kids, find new places to enjoy the outdoors, teach her kiddos how to be respectful and kind and show them God’s love. She fiercely loves her family and friends and speaks the truth, helping people around her know the sweet grace of our Lord, Jesus.”

Kerri is such a big help to the foster family community as she has fostered several children and even adopted three – Add that to the five she already had, they have a full house! She also does respite care for families that need a few days away.
Kerri is navigating the virtual school situation with the SEVEN kids who are in school. It surely isn’t easy, but she feels blessed that she is home and able to monitor them and that they can afford better WiFi for all those laptops to work. AND, she is going to school herself to be a social worker! I am in awe of her as she manages to keep it all running smoothly (with help from her husband and older children) and only loses her mind a little. To say I am proud and blessed to be her mom is an understatement!

This week’s #MondaysMom is super special because it’s MY mom, Teddie Miller!

She has always supported me, my sister and brother, and was also not afraid to let us know when we were going down the wrong path! Growing up, she worked, went to school, grew a loving marriage to my dad, Chuck Miller (for over 56 years now!), and earned the respect of her children.

Michelle moved to Las Vegas last year after marrying her husband, quickly got a job in her nursing field, and seamlessly made a welcoming home environment for all of their children!

As a mom of a blended family, I know there are a lot of moving parts – including schedules, individual temperaments, co-parenting, and other adjustments – and yet Michelle handles it all with grace and love.

This Week’s “Monday’s Mom” is Jaclyn Bolden since she is an AMAZING mom to two very high spirited boys!

I’m telling you, I am in AWE watching her patiently and lovingly play with, discipline, corral, and simply ENJOY these two boys! Jaxon and Jiles are two of the most loving, outgoing, full-of-life little boys that I’ve seen in a while.

When my own (now teen) boys were that age, I may have parented more out of ANNOYANCE (“Sit down already!”) or FEAR (“OMg stay out of the street!!!!”), but Jaclyn handles them with grace and poise, allowing them to be who they are, while keeping them safe.
