Start Here

Hey mama

Welcome to The Graceful Olive.  This blog is dedicated to helping stay-at-home moms find joy, renew their purpose and learn to live a life they truly love.  On here your will find tons of organizational ideas and guides which I know will help you by making home care easier, less stressful, time consuming and more enjoyable!  We offer some of the top articles you can find about being a better mom, finding ways to enjoy the difficult days, and really enjoying the everyday moments with your kids.

Do you struggle with overwhelm, disorganization, clutter, child drama and under-appreciation?


I spent a long time feeling all of those things and I want to help you get back on track and kick those feelings to the curb.  Maybe something big has happened to you and maybe you’ve just been looking for “more”. Whatever it is, if you are searching for purpose, identity, self… I am here to help.

How can I help?

To give you a little background of how I go to this place of contentment and joyous living Ill let you in on a little secret.  Nothing in my life changed.  We didn’t start making more money, we didn’t get a new house or a new car, I didn’t stumble upon the perfect wardrobe and my kids didn’t suddenly become perfect angles.  In fact, the opposite happened.  Our baby got cancer.  CANCER at 9 months old.  A horrible, unbelieveable, nightmare.  Chemo, hair loss, blood transfusions, emergency hospital visits, surgeries…. all before her 1st birthday.

You know what we found in this dark place?

Life.  Happiness.  Beauty.

We discovered that really matters and what really doesn’t.

I want to teach you how to get to that place without changing anything but yourself, your thought process and your own actions.
