Hello, I’m Erika aka Mom’s Quiet Prayer. Welcome to my little space of the internet.
A Little About Me.
Just how far back should I go? I could start at the beginning, but that would take a while. Despite a lot of juicy tales, involving tons of drama. I think I’ll leave it with less is more, at least for now. I’m Canadian, born and raised. I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and I’ve moved over 20 times in my 28 years of life. Currently I’m living in Calgary, Alberta and I’ve been here 5 years now.
My love for writing began, when I was 12 years old. My favourite part of journaling was, getting to pick out a new book to write in. Sigh… A blank page, a fresh start. I went through quite a few books, as you can imagine I had a lot of stuff I thought was important to write about.
Fast-forward to 2013, four months into my 3rd pregnancy I started blogging. I was looking for a place, that I could write my thoughts, feelings, and just things I thought were important. Now I’m a mom to four awesome humans 3 girls: Keera, Emilee, and Kennedy. 1 boy: Zaden. They are the sunshine in my life, with occasional heavy rain.
I’m an obsessive perfectionist, stuck in the body of an exhausted mom. Organization makes me happy, but fatigue has caused me to cave to the life of chaos that is four kids. Besides my kids I live off sarcasm, humor, and delicious food.
I also enjoy my kids, reading, strawberry acai lemonade refreshers, traveling, board-games, blogging, and good conversation. I am a wannabe super mom, who tries way too hard to go above and beyond. I’ve got an overflowing mind of creativity, but I find it hard to bring my ideas to life.
I would love to do home renovations, and tons of home projects but I’m not a home owner YET.
Here’s a quote that inspires me:
“What you do today, can improve all your tomorrows”
