Someone Pinch ME!

There has never really been ONE person in my life who has inspired me to completely change myself, other than Jesus. I base my life on Jesus Christ and although I am so very imperfect, He is who I strive to be like.

BUT when I began Gentle Parenting, my inspiration was AND is Dr. Laura Markham at Aha! Parenting. I really needed help in changing my parenting style, and when I found her blog, I knew this was where I was meant to be. I knew it was where God wanted me to be, to learn how to better serve my family.


SHE COMMENTED TWICE ON MY BLOG! Once on my actual blog, once on a link to my blog site that I was bold enough to post on her facebook wall!

I can’t stop being so excited! 🙂


ok so maybe NOT famous.

But I feel like it!

Please understand, I am not putting Dr. Markham on the same plateau as Jesus. That would just be silly. But God definitely led me to her blog, and without her sharing her parenting wisdom, I would still be lost. Her blog introduced me to Gentle Parenting and I have since found a few other great blogs that I read consistently as well.

But when I began this journey, I literally read of her articles on her blog. Countless, and I mean, countless hours. And then when I was up to date on her blog, I subscribed to her page, so I wouldn’t miss another article. I also purchased her book “Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids” and am still in the process of finishing it up.

I am so humbled and encouraged and excited. I don’t even know what to do with myself next.

I will be writing a new post soon, on something other than my overwhelming excitement.

I am sure I would have a new post up already but I have been awfully busy brushing elbows with celebrities. 😉

just kidding, just kidding. My 7 year old has strep throat, so I am playing nurse right now.

I have to go now and check on the chef and butler to make sure they are managing the staff appropriately.

just kidding, just kidding. I do have to cook supper though. These kids think they need to eat 3 meals a day!!! I know, I can’t believe it either.

About The Bonded Mom

I am on the journey of gentle parenting. I am a lover of Christ. And I am raising warriors. More specifically, I am a stay at home mom with 3 children. My daughter, Kamryn, is 13 and she was born to me as a single mom. My daughter Summer Grace is 7 and my son Lucas is 3. My heart has always been into Attachment Parenting, before I even knew what it was. I have extended breastfed all my children and allowed them to self-wean. We have always allowed co-sleeping and my two oldest children willingly moved to their own rooms to sleep with no problems, when they were ready. Being a mom is the best part of me, outside of my love for Christ. My husband works as a driver for UPS. He is an amazing man who works so hard to provide for us. We are just a normal family trying to make ends meet and raise a family centered on God's Love.
