Welcome to my front porch….it is so fun to meet you!!
My name is Laura and I am the creator of On My Front Porch. This is a place for overwhelmed moms to find joy, peace and refreshment. I am so glad you have stopped by.
I get the overwhelmed feeling. I am a wife, working mama of three, teacher, daughter, writer, and coffee lover. Everyday I work to find a balance between what “needs to be done” and what “can wait”.
I have learned over the years that every busy mom needs a place to find some quiet. A place to find joy and peace from the busyness of caring for our people. A place to be refreshed.
This is why ON MY FRONT PORCH was created. Whether a virtual retreat, an actual porch (where I often escape) or a small corner of our closet…and yes this has been my place…we find refreshment in our overwhelmed by taking time to pause and lean in to the whispers of grace and beauty of a quieted soul that is rested.
The rhythmic cycle of our days can lead to sadness and loneliness when we are not finding joy and connection. This can negatively impact our relationships and our mental and physical health.
I want to encourage you to spend some time on this site.
To read about God, the only source of our full joy and peace.
To find refreshment in knowing you are loved and do not walk alone.
To enjoy resources to help you as you navigate the everyday life of being a mama, wife, _________ (fill in your own description 🙂
