Hey there!

I’m Lydia, a former teacher who traded in textbooks and grading papers for the glamorous life of wife and mom.

My goal is to give the modern homemaker purpose and identity through God’s word. Being a wife and mom is difficult, and it’s easy to feel lonely in every day obstacles. I’m here to expose the hurts and helps that encourage you throughout your everyday life.

Cleveland native I now live in Naples, FL with my husband Clay, son Ezra and two cats! I can’t go a day without drinking coffee and love all things dinosaur. Head over to my Instagram to follow my crazy life in pictures and Facebook at Life of Lydia.


Spread the love
