Welcome to my blog “When Mom Grows Up”.

I am an Catholic Army wife, mother to 6 children, and aspiring writer.

I grew up in the Army and have been married to it for nearly 2 decades.

As a child I dreamed of growing up to be a professional woman…I never dreamed of staying home and being the housewife/mommy-type.  But, as is often the case, God had bigger plans for my life.  And I have been very blessed and fortunate to be able to stay home with my children.

However, as I watch them grow into amazing young men and women, I am starting to have that gnawing feeling in my gut that there is something else I want to do in life as well.  I want to tap into those “other” dreams that I had as a child, and understand what other purposes God has for my life.

I hope that this blog is not only a record of my own adventures in trying to figure out “what I want to do when I ‘grow up’,” but I hope it will be a place where others can discuss their dreams and callings as well.  Welcome…

Now tell me, what do you want to be when you “grow up?”

  1. When I grow up, I want to have what you do!! I want to have children and a stable home married to my one true love!!

    1. I am definitely blessed…but it ain’t all roses! Every walk of life has its blessings and its challenges. I think the trick is to find contentment without “settling”…realizing that as long as you are alive, God has work for you to do, and you have the power to make things happen!
