Iâ€™m Christi Daugherty, a blended family mom of 5 teenagers who has learned to push through the tough times and encourage moms and families. As a family we have come such a long way. I was a single mom to two sons and a daughter who fought a long and exhausting custody battle while losing both her mental and physical health. My husband fought a terrible battle for his son and daughter also. In 2010 my husband and I were married and now have a big blended family, but our journey had just begun. We had to learn to push through.
From one crazy story of blending families, custody wars with both sets of kids and just when we thought life was about to get easy our oldest son was diagnosed with a rare disease that causes colorectal cancer called Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Now things have changed so dramatically that those 9+ hour trips to his doctors have been made in the same vehicle with his dad and stepdad. Who would have ever thought?!
I started working from home several years ago after leaving my job in retail. I found that no matter what I was doing I had mom’s that were down in the dumps, overwhelmed with life and just couldn’t get through the day that were looking for someone to give them advice or just a little glimmer of hope. So through many revisions of blogging and social media terms, working in network marketing I have been encouraging moms for many years and will continue to do so for my entire life if God so blesses me to do so.
God has made huge changes in our lives and so many more are coming! I hope you will stick around and see how our blended family keeps on pushing through the tough times while we encourage moms.
