Welcome to Purposeful Mama!

Hi I’m Adalee!

I’m a Christian, a wife, and a mom of two toddlers. I’m living the life I’ve always dreamed of. But after our second child was born, I felt like I was drowning. I had trouble keeping up with everything and I found myself wishing the days away–I wanted to skip the baby stage and fast forward to when my daughter was more independent and less needy.

I started Purposeful Mama to share some intentional habits and routines I have started that have helped me keep up with all the different responsibilities I face day to day. I will also be sharing insights on motherhood and marriage from a Christian perspective.

Finding Joy in the Everyday

I am learning how to thrive in motherhood instead of just surviving.

Instead of losing myself in motherhood, I am learning about myself and what brings me joy. From going on walks to making lists to decorating the house to writing posts for this blog, I am discovering things that fill me.

Glorifying God

1 Corinthians 10:31b reminds us, “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” That should be our aim–whether in parenting, marriage, home management, friendships, etc. our goal should be to bring God glory.

I believe that God wants us to be good stewards of what He has given us, and that’s what being intentional is all about—being good stewards of our time and resources. So join me on this journey as we seek to glorify God and find ways to be purposeful in our lives in the process.
