About Simple Structured Mama
I’ll never forget the first time I was home alone with my first newborn.
I’d always wanted to be a stay at home mom, and I had plenty of babysitting experience to make me believe it would be a piece of cake.
But when my husband left for the first time and it was just me and my two week old daughter, I was terrified. What was I supposed to be doing? How do I take care of a newborn? How to do I manage to keep the home clean and the laundry done and all the other to-do tasks in between?
Even after adding three more kiddos and starting to homeschool a few years later, I still I did NOT feel equipped to be a stay at home mom (and my BA in English wasn’t doing me any good!).
After talking with other stay at home moms my age, I realized that I wasn’t the only one feeling like I was in over my head.
That’s when I started seeing the need for a one-stop stay at home mom training center.
Simple Structured Mama is a knowledge base with a mission to equip stay at home moms for stay at home mom life. You’ll find inspiration, knowledge, and strategies to help you feel like you can handle the challenge and beauty of modern-day stay at home life.
About Kelani Daniels
Hey there, I’m Kelani Daniels, believer in Christ, life coach, homeschooling work-at-home mom, and content creator.
In my first few years as a stay at home mom, I had a nagging feeling that I could never quite get a grip on things. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was supposed to be doing, and I felt like everyday was a little more out of control than it was probably supposed to be. And underneath it all I felt kinda purposeless, like everyone “out there” was doing things that really mattered while I was wiping bottoms and picking up toys all day.
Desperately wanting help, I scoured the internet. I read other mom blogs. I watched videos. I copied other mom’s schedules and recipes and DIY instruction sheets from Pinterest because I was determined to “get it right.”
In the process, I would continually myself, my husband, and God, “Why is this so hard?”.
Now I’m three more kids and ten years down the road. I thank God for the wisdom, the knowledge, and the counsel I’ve received from books, articles, and other seasoned mamas that has helped me get to where I am today. And I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit, who gives tailor-made wisdom for every situation we face!
As a result, I’ve been able to provide help to lots of other mamas along the way, both through posts I’ve written on this blog and moms I’ve spoken to.
“I’m so grateful for Simple Structured Mama for giving me the tools I needed to enjoy life and stop living a stressful life.” ~Jazmin A., mom of 2
My prayer is that you will be encouraged in your own stay at home journey as you learn, lean on the help of the Holy Spirit, and press forward knowing that what you are doing is tremendously impactful.
