Hi there!

I’m Karen and I am the creator of Simply Grace Today. I started this site for busy moms who are in the trenches of raising a family while working either inside or outside of the home.

Working mom life is not for the faint of heart. It often feels like two demanding full-time jobs. Both are blessings in their own way, but both can also leave you feeling exhausted and as if you are barely treading water.

I feel you mama, I am right there with you. As working moms we are tasked with keeping up with the home and finances, meal planning, raising kids, and somewhere in there we try to squeeze in self-care.

Here at Simply Grace Today, you will find encouragement you need to manage the overwhelm that comes with being a working mom. I am so glad that you are here and these are some of the ways I can help you live your best working mom life:

  • Simplify the daily hustle that is leaving you feeling depleted and exhausted
  • Create home management systems like cleaning and decluttering routines
  • Meal planning and simple recipes to get dinner on the table fast
  • Practical solutions to manage your household finances and curb overspending
  • Fun ideas to spend quality time with your family and make lasting memories
  • Simple tips to prioritize quiet time with God despite the busy seasons of life

One thing I want to make sure you know is this: I am on this journey right there along with you. Just like you, I have to prioritize what I will say yes to, and what will get a big fat confident “No” (in a kind way of course). And I don’t always get it right.

A Little Bit About Me:

I am a wife and mom to two amazing kids and I am honored to be their mom. I work full time as a nurse and I have a Bachelors as well as a Masters Degree in Nursing.

I met my husband of almost 20 years in Bible college and have served in various ways at our church in areas like teaching Sunday school, women’s ministries, greeting, and I was even the church wedding coordinator (talk about needing patience).

I live in the great state of Texas where tacos and brisket can be an appetizer, side dish or main course. I love to cook, read and travel with my family. Road trips are the absolute best! We are a sports loving family and depending on the season you will either hear us cheering loud and proud for the Dallas Cowboys or the Texas Rangers!!

If you’ve made it this far, you know I mentioned that I don’t have it all together. I am just a girl with a passion to help other busy moms live life to the fullest and stop dreading Monday mornings. There is so much more to life than just living for the weekend.

If I can encourage you in any way, please reach out to me at karen@simplygracetoday.com, also if you would be so inclined, I would love to know what areas of working mom life do you struggle with the most. Let me know!

In God’s grace,

Karen
