Single motherhood






hello there,

I'm Faith

I'm a multifaceted woman juggling a few of life's greatest joys and challenges. On one hand, I'm a discerning aficionado of fries, an insatiable bibliophile with an ever-growing reading list, and a culinary enthusiast who finds solace in the magic of cooking. Yet, my most defining and cherished role is that of a mother to my adorable yet mischevious twin boys, Hodari and Milambu.

Originally from the bustling city of Nairobi, Kenya and now happy to call the
mountainous state of Colorado home

If you would have told me that at 30 years old I would be a single mom to 4 year old twin boys, I would have slapped you and ran away... (okay that was a little violent). 

Being a single mom was never in my mood board, not a checklist in my goals and definitely not a bucket list item I wanted to cross off but here we are...
You know what the bible says, "Man plans, and God laughs." I couldn't agree more, as I know He must have had a hearty chuckle while I was meticulously laying out my life plans.

Life as a single mom has thrown curveballs my way, including the stress and complications of coparenting with a toxic ex. It's been a tumultuous ride, but my love for my kids serves as my North Star, offering unwavering guidance through the most challenging nights.

Navigating these challenges is precisely what inspired me to step into the world of vlogging on YouTube. I started to realize that while my struggles were my own, they echoed the challenges faced by countless other single moms. I found that sharing my journey not only provided me with an unexpected therapeutic outlet but also began to form a community.

A community of strong, resilient women who, like me, were doing their very best in a difficult situation. This sense of unity and empowerment was too monumental to keep to myself. It was only natural to transition this community-building to a more formal space—thus, this blog was born.

On this blog, I delve into the intricacies of single motherhood, lifestyle choices, homemaking, and, of course, the joys and trials of raising kids. It's a place where I not only share my own experiences but also aim to offer a helping hand to those going through their own struggles. Writing has been a therapeutic journey for me, and the thought that my words could impact someone else's life positively is incredibly fulfilling.

So, grab a cup of coffee or tea and make yourself comfortable. I'm thrilled to have you here as part of our ever-growing community. Together, let's navigate the ups and downs, celebrate the wins, and support each other in our respective journeys.
