This blog title is my life. I am discovering that my life will always be “in training”- and there is excitement and fulfillment in that.


Why blog?

For me, it is easy to feel drowned in the discipline and routine of everyday. The desire of my heart is to see the majesty of our Creator- His provision, His creativity, His purposes, and His grace- in the midst of my routine. I never got a how-to manual, so this blog is a rough draft to a lifelong manual God is writing through my family’s stories: filled with diy’s, don’ts, and better-luck-next-times.

I come from a broadcast background. That’s right, this Mama used to run cameras, book talent, and write scripts. 🙂  While the bulk of my broadcasting experience is behind the scenes in local news programming, I have also gotten the opportunity to work in the national circuit- as an associate producer for one of NBC’s daytime talk shows “iVillage Live”. (It lasted 2 seasons- better than the average!)

I left television to become a Mom, start writing, event planning, and growing teams  for a renowned children’s learning program and smaller, non-profit organizations. Currently, I also have  been given the amazing opportunity to write for children’s ministries and magazines.

As my family grows, I find that my passion to save money, live healthier, be #datingforlife grows by leaps and bounds. I am a self- proclaimed “equal opportunity eater”. I do not limit our diets to gluten free, sugar free, or vegetable free. The Traurig rule is with each meal you have to try at least one bite. So the recipes I post are more about trying new things than any diet fad.

It can be hard to find family time or even down time. And some days marriage may seem too hard. But everyday is a chance for new choices. And each moment is an opportunity to make the most of life.  I wouldn’t change our life for anything.

I hope that my backward stories, adventures in healthier living, penny pinching posts, and random thoughts somehow encourage you to find the freedom and joy I have found in living.
