Welcome to my blog! I’m so happy you stopped by.

I want to share with you the background behind my blog and why I love to write.

What’s in a name?

I chose “Journey to L.I.F.E.” (Living Intentionally For Excellence) when my husband and I were apart of a personal development group.  I was learning to live to the fullest in every aspect of my life and be the best wife, mother, business owner, friend, person I could be.

Since then we’ve stepped out of the group but I still strive to live my best life.  I’m glad I chose a title with a broad topic reach.  I have so much to write about I don’t want to be confined to one topic.

What you might find

I have many interests and a head full of creative ideas.  Here’s just a few:

  • personal finance
  • meal planning
  • mothering
  • being a good wife
  • relationships
  • butterflies (I can name almost every kind in MO)
  • parenting
  • basketball (I was a point guard on my high school team)
  • gardening
  • yoga
  • business
  • writing
  • blogging
  • reading/books
  • card making
  • personal development
  • spiritual things
  • publishing
  • journaling
  • helping others

It’s hard to put a person in a box and confine them to a set of defined presets….but that’s me in a nutshell.

What I promise you

I promise to only post things that are helpful or beneficial.  I will be open and honest about my struggles to help you get through yours. Whether it be in your personal finances, your business, your home life, I will offer advice and guidance to lead you through.

I’ve recently defined “helping others” as my reason for writing.  I am always the person my friends and family come to for sound advice.  Even in my short 27 years on this earth, I have learned a great many things.
