My name is Xaris, you can call me Mama X or Xar. There isn’t actually any tea in my cup but I do love me a good cup of herbal tea. My top favorite things are my daughter ♥️, plants, cute illustrations, and FOOD. If I’m not trying a new recipe, you may catch me journaling or going for a short walk!
I have a degree in psychology and a knack for dreaming up big goals & visions. Intrapersonal intelligence is my thing and you will find out, shortly!
That’s what I am passionate about: seeing the torch of women’s souls get lighted once they connect with the innermost details of God’s design on their life.
I started this blog when I became a new creation in 2018. I was in a dark and desperate place (college drop-out, jobless, single AND pregnant) when I experienced God’s grace.
This new hope gave me courage to wake up and face every day. To finish my degree. To work. To write. To be myself again. To look forward to motherhood, even if I am a single mom. And through all I do, to shine my light from the hilltop. Which I was desperately bad at before all of this.
Redemption led me to experience hope, real HOPE, that inspires and fires me into action. Because hope is not just an emotion, it is not passively living in stagnation. Hope is an action that supports the beliefs you hold inside.
Like getting tired of people telling me that I couldn’t be a Jill of All Trades and a Master of None because I had such wide interests from painting and poetry to cooking and psychology. Then one day, it hit me that all of my hobbies were therapeutic methods for me to cope with depression, stress, and anxiety.
Now I see tons of other creative women who feel trapped by today’s message that tells them that they need to pursue just one end-goal: a career. This pursuit really dampens the feminine spirit. And I care deeply about the femininity that God blessed, us, women with. Now I encourage women to express, educate and expand themselves through relevant hobbies in order to connect to their design and live their life dream.
For women to live out their dream every single day successfully and peacefully with the help of mental/emotional liberation through hobby therapy.
Subtract: Passive hope that it’ll magically get better. Living a disingenuous life. Stuck in limitation. Lacking healthy sense of self-worth. Outward neglect of inner being.
Add: Active hope into life-changing action. Living your life dream. Clear vision of opportunities. Activities to develop your personal skillset. Expression of innermost emotions.
I am joyed that you’re here to join the Village and explore the home of your soul?
Here at the blog, we exchange practical tips and lifestyle thoughts about connecting to Godly purpose, finding the courage to be yourself, conscious parenting, and creative activities (to break out of that passive shell!!!).
