With the school starting again and more moms than ever working and rocking their businesses from home, I’m giving you a peek inside the world of some of my favorite moms who work and thrive from home.
These are moms who have kids who stay at home with them the majority of the day (or are in school during the day). Moms who build their businesses around their kids and family and stand out in my mind as women who have great tips and skills for you. These are also women I look up to and believe they’re fulfilling the work they’ve been created for.
What would it feel like to pass the baton over to a writer who writes five days a week for her own business and for others? It’d feel amazing.
I love writing my own words on my blog to encourage and support women who are exhausted from doing more and trying harder. But as much as I love creating my own content, I want to help others share their stories.
So I started a business to do just that.
Emerald Editing + Copywriting started in September 2018 with the goal to write words and messages that worked for them.
Through my years of marketing and writing for my blog, I learned how tough it is to write and edit all the content it takes to run a business: website copy, taglines, headlines, blog posts, and so on and so on forever. And writing a book is not for the faint of heart either because you create a story arc, focus on a few points when you have a million in your head, and must hook your reader from the first word.
But what if someone could help you write and edit all the content you need to create?
And for those ready to feel amazing, less stressed, and get hours of work off their plate, Emerald Editing + Copywriting is here to serve.
I write content for companies and edit books, devotionals, and website copy for others. Crafting words that work is my specialty because it saves my clients’ time, energy, and sanity.
If you’re a business owner or writer who needs encouragement, I am the copywriter + editor for you.Creating words from nothing and generating ideas is mentally and emotionally exhausting so it’s a gift when you have someone who comes alongside you and spurs you on to keep doing what you love doing. We all need a cheerleader. For my clients, I’m a cheerleader who also knows capitalization and grammar!
My husband and I dream that our family will be one on mission: a family that knows God, loves God, enjoys God, and obeys God even when it’s hard. We want our girls to follow Christ whole-heartedly as well as to have emotional intelligence and to be productive humans in society.
My dreams for my business include helping as many writers as possible share their stories. God is the author and perfecter of each life story and our stories are worth sharing when they point others back to Him.
- p.m. then the laptop closes and it’s family time. During the school year, works stops at 2:30 p.m. and I focus on my people.
- Check your heart. Remember that everything you do is to be done in a manner worthy of Christ. If you’re snippy, irritated, or angry at your people for not allowing you to get work done, give yourself grace and a time out. People are God’s masterpieces and Jesus died for the people who interrupt and frustrate you.
Having said that, work is also so important. In fact, God preordained good work for you to do, but you are to do it with a heart of love, compassion, grace, and mercy. Check your heart if you’re overwhelmed, exhausted, and cranky all the time: you’re either taking on too much, have wrapped your identity into your work, or you’re not dying to self.
Okay, so that’s two pieces of advice! Just remember sweet working mom that God sees you, He knows your needs, and He will provide. With Christ as your good shepherd, you lack nothing!
