Introduction
I am big believer in intentional parenting. From tot-school to how we discipline, intentionality should shape our actions in raising well-rounded children. Modern motherhood is characterized by these actions, finding easier ways to provide for, cook for, and clean for the family. 

Passionate about blogging, over the years I have also started my own consulting business to both help others by working on organizing sites for SEO, site structure, and design for them, but also to write about my experiences blogging.
