​My Family

I am Donae! A wife and a mom of 2 kids, ALL boys. I would love to share with you my experience with motherhood.

Growing up, I never thought I would be here with a home and 2 kids who are determined in their own ways to change my perception of life, my career, and the things I hold dear.

Fast-forward to today, I am a wife with a career and a future that I expected would be typical, go to work, come home, take care of my husband and kids, and then do the household stuff. 

It was not after I had children that my perception of life totally changed and the things that I thought were the best or the “so-called” American dream was actually the total opposite for me.

I struggled with my identity for a long time as I juggled a career as a Pharmacist. Being a Pharmacist was so demanding on my life that I felt misplaced for most of the time. It wasn’t until a breaking moment in my life that I thought that this wasn’t who I was.

I wanted to be with my family and to take care of them mentally, emotionally, and physically. However,  I didn’t get the opportunity to do that while working as a Pharmacist. 

I began to despise the very career I had spent my entire time working to achieve. 

So here I am today with a new renewed idea of what life, motherhood, and having a family means. It is far more than a career I cared nothing about but more rewarding to know that I can help my family to grow. I know there are moms out there who struggle with this same idea of life and motherhood.

This is my mission to help women understand their own struggles and to identify how they can become an integral part of their families without the burnout, frustration, and difficulties of everyday life. 

This is my life and my journey. I hope it will inspire you to make the necessary changes you want to make for the better in order to see your own family flourish. 

I also authored two Christian books that chronicle my journey from my pharmacist career to now an author, speaker, podcaster, and blogger. Get more information about my books on my site.
