Welcome!! Glad to have you here, sit down, have a cup of coffee, let’s get to know each other!
Hi, I’m Krista!
Welcome to my “Far From Normal” corner of the internet!
It is my belief that with the right mindset and tools an ordinary life can be extraordinary!
I’m glad you’re here, and I hope as you spend time poking around that you will be encouraged and inspired to be the best mom and the best you that you can be! I hope that you will find ideas that help you feel good about living your life on your terms, and parenting from your heart in a way that is best for your kids and your family!
I am by no means a parenting expert but with three kids ages 20, 16, and 10 I have a unique perspective that allows me to see how my parenting has evolved, what has worked beautifully, and what I have improved over the years. I believe in chilling out, choosing your battles, and always always leading with love. I believe that honest open communication and true connection are key to having an amazing relationship with your kids!
I also believe that we are always evolving as parents and as people, that as moms we have to take care of ourselves as much as we take care of our families. That our emotional and physical well being is so important and continuing to grow, learn and evolve is how we become our best selves, and the best moms we can be.
My life has had a lot of unexpected ups and downs, I got pregnant at 18, the same year that my father entered an inpatient drug rehab program, and my parent’s marriage ended. For many years I carried around the burden and victim mentality of the life I had planned being disrupted. I’ve learned to overcome that mentality, embrace my past as what has made me the strong capable woman I am today. And it is my desire to help others let go of their pasts so that they are able to embrace their amazing now, and be present with their family in a real and meaningful way!
My blog has evolved over the years, I started with recipes and DIY’s, gardening tips, and homeschool ideas. Now I focus on helping moms improve their lives, connect with their kids, and find balance in striving to be super mom!
I believe we each have to find our way in life, and in parenting, and that we have so much to offer each other along the way. I also believe that there is no special formula, no rules that have to be followed, and that we can live our lives happily outside the box!
I’m excited to have you here! I hope to see you around often!
