I'm Jamie Martin, and in this space I write about my journey along the path of motherhood--as I do my imperfect best to walk through life with intention and purpose.
I hope my blog encourages other moms who are juggling multiple roles and, like me, sometimes feel overwhelmed by all that is required of us.
You should know that this motherhood gig doesn't always come naturally to me, and every day I need extra doses of patience!
That's why here at Steady Mom I present both the joy I find in my family, as well as the reality of life's challenges along the way.

About My Family
As you can see, I have a diverse, international (& cute!) family. My husband Steve and I waited six years into our marriage to have children. But we made up for lost time by adding all three of our children in less than three years.
Our family represents four nations: USA (Mommy & Jonathan), England (Daddy), Liberia (Elijah), and India (Trishna).
Steve: Steve and I met overseas as teenagers and married in 1998. He is a visionary and a world-changer, who spends his days working to end child trafficking and exploitation as the CEO of Love146.
Jonathan: Jonathan is our biological child, born in 2004. He is sensitive, compassionate, outgoing and bursting with ideas.
Elijah: Elijah joined our family in 2005 (at the age of six months) from Liberia, West Africa. He is a deep thinker, loving, and joyful.
Trishna: Though she was the third child to come to our family, Trishna became our oldest when she joined us in 2007 at the age of four from India. She is courageous and curious--loves to read, write books ("just like Mommy!"), and draw.
My family is my deepest priority--I am so thankful that I get to spend my days with them. I'm proud of the important work we're doing in the world, and look forward to all God has in store for our futures.
Why no comments?
Occasionally I get asked why comments are not open here on Steady Mom. You can read the reasons in this post. Thanks for your understanding as I do my best to keep my family life & my time balanced.
