Our Lives

Janice Olivia JacksonI am Janice. I have one thirteen year old boy named Jackson and a seven year old girl named Olivia.

Between picking up toys and shuttling my son to school and after school activities, you can find me typing away at my laptop on my kitchen table.

I am a writer and a former youth worker. I loved my job working with teens, but I wanted to spend more energy focusing on my family. So, in 2004, I became a WAHM and I love my career online.

Susan Julia SophiaI’m Susan and mom to Julia and Sophia. Julia is nine and Sophia is seven — two weeks younger than Janice’s girl Olivia.

After three and a half years of infertility, Julia was an incredible surprise. And then the Lord blessed me again with little Sophia.

I am ecstatic to be their mom, and I feel so blessed to be able to work at home with them.

Before beginning my online businesses in 2005, I lived in the corporate world as a software developer and business consultant.
