More About Clarissa
I am an (imperfect) follower of Jesus Christ, (old-fashioned) housewife/homemaker, (eclectic) homeschool mom to 7 children, (grieving) mom of 1 child in Heaven, & (blessed) farm girl from my roots.
I work from home through this website & store, as an Online Influencer, Independent Stylist for Lilla Rose, Independent Consultant for Usborne Books & More, and an Independent Norwex Sales Consultant.
I love seeing how God works in our life (spiritual growth), at-home date nights with my husband (every night, lol), learning as I teach my kids (through a lifestyle of learning), down-to-earth-real mamas (you!), a good homemade bulletproof protein coffee (THM-S), books (especially the ones I read to my kids), & writing (here).
We live in a small house in a big town (or little city) in the Pacific Northwest, near where I was raised on a commercial farm. We dream of owning our own small homestead in the country someday!
I am blessed beyond comprehension, but life has not turned out the way I dreamed it would be! I lost my mom to cancer when I was 21, many of our children have food allergies & medical/special needs from mitochondrial disorders & immune deficiencies, our 5th child died 88-minutes after his birth in 2011, & I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Sarcoidosis in 2012.
Through it all, I have been led to the feet of Jesus where He has faithfully reminded me of my blessings & wiped away my tears, brought joy & purpose to my life, & given me new strength to stand… over & over again. I pray my life story, as it unfolds before me, is glorifying to God and an inspiration to even one person!
Meet my family!
88 minutes on Earth,
Eternity with Jesus,
Forever in our Hearts!
