I’m Kimberly Nicole Steenbergen.
I’m a wife to an amazing man, a mom of three, and a lover of Jesus Christ. Usually, you’ll find me with a toddler on my hip, chai tea latte in hand, and most likely multitasking!
As a wife, mother, homeschooler, semi-crunchy homemaker, and home-based business owner, my life is full of beautiful chaos and the struggle is real. Most days, I feel like I’ve got everything all figured out, and other days, I’m trying to figure out how I’m actually going to get things done.
I would like to think that I have become a master at juggling cloth diaper laundry, homeschooling, homemaking, cooking, or whatever else the day throws on my plate. But the truth is, I am a work in progress and I struggle. But one thing I rest in is grace! I’m nowhere near having it all figured but God’s grace has given me so much assurance.
There are times when I need a reminder that God created me for motherhood. He specifically called me to be a stay at home mom, to homeschool our kids, to support my husband in ministry and to inspire moms, like you, according to Titus 2:3-5.
Steven and I got married after only TWO months of dating and we’ve been married for 9 years now! I’m so blessed that God brought this man into my life! And it’s true what they say, opposites attract! He’s the crazy to my calm. I’m the planner, he’s the spontaneous one. We balance each other out nicely, but it hasn’t always been this way. We’ve had a long road in our marriage to get to where we are today. God’s sovereignty and grace have taken our marriage to a new level and there’s no one else I’d rather spend my life with. Even on the days where he drives me crazy the most (love you babe!), there’s no one else I’d rather do life with and I’m so blessed to be on this journey with him.
These three make my heart smile in so many ways! Even on the toughest of days, God has blessed me with incredible kids. People often ask me “Girl, how in the world do you do it with them being so close in age?” I’ll tell you how. By the grace of God! Life is crazy, busy, full of classic toddler meltdowns, dirty cloth diapers, toys scattered all over the house but at the same time, these moments are what I was created for! There’s no hood like motherhood!
Homegrown Motherhood is a lifestyle blog with a focus on marriage, faith, motherhood, homeschooling, homemaking, and how to start a home-based freelance business.
This blog was birthed from a desire in my heart to encourage stay at home homeschool moms who struggle to balance “all the things” and who want to discover a life of purpose and grace found in Christ alone.
As stay at home moms, sometimes we just need to know that we’re not alone and that there are other moms standing in our corner who get it.
Mama, I get it!
Through the pages of this blog, you will find resources that will help encourage you on your journey. It doesn’t matter what stage of motherhood you’re in, there is something for you here. In a world where it’s so easy to lose your identity, know that you were created for motherhood.
Homegrown Motherhood is a place where you will be encouraged to chase after the dreams God put in your heart. It’s a safe place for you to connect, grow and flourish in life!
So, mama, grab your (cold) coffee, find yourself a nice comfy seat, and join me on this journey!
