Meet Jamie

Thanks for stopping by and taking time to hang out!

I’m Jamie Martin, and I hold the title of editor around these parts–along with the titles of mama, wife, teacher, and author.

I love walking in the woods, baking with my little people, traveling, and reading. Some of my favorite titles: Little House on the Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, and Gone with the Wind.

I met my British husband Steve when I was sixteen years old and ventured overseas to volunteer with a humanitarian organization for the summer. When I came back home, I told my grandmother that I’d met the person I was going to marry.

Six years later, I did.

Here’s a pic of us when we first met:

Now, over twenty years later, our family looks like this:

Along the way, we added three children to our ranks: Jonathan (our biological son), Elijah (adopted from Liberia), and Trishna (adopted from India). With four nationalities represented in our family, we like to think of ourselves as a mini-United Nations.

I never planned to become a homeschooling mom, but stumbled into it when doing some initial research into educational options for our kids. Often the best things in life are unplanned, aren’t they? I love the advantages homeschooling gives my kids, and this lifestyle fits perfectly with who we are as a family.

(Note to readers: I still can be found, on challenging days, researching public and private school options in my area. Superwoman does not live in my house, just a mama in the trenches like you.)

A few years ago I decided to write a book, and figured I better have “one of those blog-things” to go along with it. So I started writing about intentional motherhood over at Steady Mom. I had no idea at the time that I was stumbling upon something that would add so much joy and so many opportunities to my life.

My first book, Steady Days: A Journey Toward Intentional, Professional Motherhood, released in January 2010.

My e-book, Mindset for Moms: From Mundane to Marvelous Thinking in Just 30 Days, released in January 2012.

Secrets-300

In October 2012 I released another ebook called Secrets of a Successful Homeschool Mom. The PDF version is FREE to subscribers of this blog – head here for more details!

I love that I get to spend my days with my children, while also writing and working from home–what a gift! And I love meeting and interacting with you, the readers, who make this such a fun place to work. Thank you!
