Summertime Encouragement

The end of May means we are half way through 2019. Can you believe that!? The end of May also marks the end of spring and the beginning of summer. Summer is a time where people tend to let loose and indulge in things they enjoy. This is not a bad thing, by any means....

What Does Leviticus Teach Us?

Recently, I have been encouraged by multiple sources to make time for silence. Complete silence. This time is different than my quiet time with my Bible and journal. This time is a time for God to make moves inside of me. This time does not comes easily- I am one to...

Easy Meal Prep for Toddlers

5 of the Best Podcasts for Christian Women

This past December I decided to “unplug.” For me, this meant pulling back from most social media interaction. Pulling away looked like deleting apps and only going to Facebook to update family with pictures and short blurbs. But for 5 months I did not spend my...

Hi! I'm Alana

Hi! I'm Alana

I am so glad that you stumbled upon Tired Mom Life. This is my small corner of the internet where I share my heart, what God is doing in my life, and how I work to see Him in all of the jumbled life of being a mom, wife and follower of Christ. My prayer is that God is able to touch you through my experience and that you will be encouraged that you are not alone, and you are so loved.

I am a young-mother to my 1 year old daughter, and a wife to the spiritual leader of my prayers. I love being outside, going for walks, writing and being with my family. I am excited to be pursuing this God-given passion of writing and I am so thankful you have decided to come along.


Seek the Lord and His strength; seek his presence continually!
