Meet the Shewmakes

To any friends joining in, thank you! Bear with me while I introduce our fam to anyone just meeting us, and then I want to share with you my passion for this project.

My name is Jessica, and this is me…

That little cutie behind me is Afton. She just turned 3. She loves music and Shimmer & Shine is life! (Shimmer & Shine = Cartoon about twin genies😉) She also has something called KCNQ2. It’s a genetic disorder that causes epilepsy and a lot of other crummy stuff. But she is a fighter, and we have become researchers, advocates, teachers, nurses, and anything else needed.

This is my hubs, Chad. He is the hardest working guy I know. He spoils us as best he can. He is a wonderful dad, and we couldn’t do life without him.

This beauty is my oldest, Alexa. She is athletic and smart and funny. She is also a huge help to me. She makes friends so easily which has been a blessing as much as we have moved.

So…why are we here for everyone to meet? We are just a normal family living life in southern Georgia. I love to decorate and try to channel my inner Joanna Gaines for every project (don’t we all? )! I have a passion for parties, and Pinterest was the best and worst thing ever created for me. I cook all the time, but I am recently on a new health journey and am discovering new ways to cook delicious meals. I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a friend. This probably sounds like a lot of people you know.

Having a child with some serious health issues probably doesn’t make us much different either, but it has changed us. It made us smarter, stronger, and more faithful. It made us feel small and broke us and consumed us. It has introduced us to a world of wonderful people. My heart is softer because of it.

I am passionate about helping other women navigate hardships that we will all have on this rollercoaster of life, and I have felt led to share our ordinary journey with extraordinary blessings. I hope you enjoy your time here and feel encouraged. As always, I invite you to leave a comment or say hello.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
