Hey there!

I’m Sierra, a wife and mom of two, who is passionate about sharing stories to inspire and encourage others. After years of “balancing” life as a working mom, I decided to take a career pause in 2021 to intentionally focus on my family. I never pictured myself as a writer, yet here I am.

A Labor for Love is my little corner of the Internet, where I document my personal journey through motherhood and give others a platform to do the same.

how did I get here?

The idea of starting a blog surfaced during my normal morning commute to work. It was mid-December and I was thinking about how quickly our first Christmas with our son was approaching. Then it hit me, the last 8 months or so had gone by so fast that I barely had time to process all the changes that had occurred in my life. I tend to be an internal processor, thinking through everything in my head or writing in my journal. It was during that morning drive that I realized I hadn’t spent a lot of time reflecting on my journey through motherhood. I knew it was time to write.

Initially, the fear of sharing such intimate and personal aspects of my life was a deterrent, but as I sought God’s purpose for my life I decided that it was important that I trust Him and not turn away as He led me to write. So here I am, beginning this blogging journey. I imagine this place being somewhere for me to share about my life and document my journey through motherhood. I hope you are inspired as you read!

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

 Proverbs 3:5-6
