Hi.

I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to two darling little boys named Dylan Archer and Kyler Jude.  I created this space to document my family's adventures and lessons I've learned along the way.  The Mom Jungle is a modern interpretation of both the family newsletter and scrapbook.  

I call this The Mom Jungle because life is wonderful and messy and indeed, "It's a jungle out there!"

TELL YOUR STORY

A few months ago my husband and I were entertaining friends.  After we had finished our last spoonfuls of trifle and sips of expressos, one person asked, "So what's your story?"

My initial thought was- What story? I don't have one.

I have friends from various walks of life.  Some come from broken homes; some even from orphanages.  Some have experienced unspeakable tragedies and have overcome addiction.  On the other hand, I come from a loving family.  While we weren't rich, we also lacked nothing.  As a teenager, I never got into the partying scene and prioritized my studies, friends and faith over boys and experimental behaviour.  I've had incredible opportunities, gone on global adventures and received an education.  I now have an amazing family of my own.  Don't get me wrong, my life is far from perfect.  It's just that sometimes I feel as if my story isn't much a story.

While my story doesn't feel like much of a story, it is my story.  It is one that I should embrace.  Staying the course takes bravery, courage and is often less traveled.

Tell your story.  It's yours to inspire and strengthen others.
