The Newsymom.com family has grown a bit larger! Everyone, meet Crystal!
I am a mother of 4 grown children and 4 grands. Yes, I know I don’t look like I have a 36-year-old and 4 grands but, yes I do. Grateful for each and every experience in life I have had with raising them all. Sports, dance classes, band, and all the running them to practices. I love to sing and my youngest loved to say life is not a musical, her way of saying stop making noise I like the quiet. I was blessed to have homeschooled them all.
Yes, there is life after children Yes you will make it. They all left me with amazing memories. I’m in a new season in life now. A single, empty nester and after 36 years of raising children (since I was 18) I’m excited for the new season on the horizon.
This year I will turn 55 in December. I say a year of double grace, blessing and abundant favor.
I own my business Polished Pearls cleaning company. It’s two-fold as I encourage single moms and women and prepare them for healthy relationships. I focus my teachings on subjects of codependency, orphan heart, grieving losses and how to let go and become a woman of excellent value with their own voice while putting into place boundaries that keep them safe to be themselves.
I lead a Hurting Moms group. It’s a 10-week support group for women whose children are making choices that bring them pain. I have been a crisis pregnancy counselor and I work with victims of human trafficking. My love for the broken and hurting has always brought hope to watch as God reveals Himself, heals and restores them.
My desire is to lead women to their identity before the fall of man. Who are they? Their God-breathed gifts and talent are their uniqueness. His DNA is in them and I want to show them how to walk in it free from FEAR.
I am also currently writing a book on the Eternal Bride. If you are anywhere near me you will encounter the Love, Grace, Compassion, and Mercy of the Father.
Trust me, we all do the best we can to raise our children I would only hope to encourage less cleaning more enjoying and lots of love. Relax there is always tomorrow. May my life echo into eternity, being a mom is one of my greatest joys and honor.
P.S. I have stories, yes funny one; ‘mom bring me home TRESemme’….’how I got Tiramisu out of that…Oh well, the mousse was cheaper I got a refund.’
May we encourage each other to live brave and courageous.
