Thank you for stopping by! My name is Stacey and I am a wife and mom of two beautiful girls, ages 5 & 8. We live on the coast of Maine and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else! Winters can get long, but the rest of the year in our beautiful state makes up for it. My favorite place to be is at the beach with a good book (of course having 2 kids I rarely have the book in hand).
Why I created Journal for Kids…
In October 2015, when my youngest was 18 months old, I made the difficult decision to leave my corporate career and stay home full-time. I had no idea of the journey I was about to embark on and the challenges and absolute joys that come along with being a stay-at-home mom. Whether you are a full-time or part-time working parent, a stay-at-home parent, or a work-at-home parent, we all struggle to find balance and fulfillment in our chaotic lives. Balance to find time for ourselves outside of motherhood and fatherhood, fulfillment to be able to enjoy life to the fullest and appreciate our blessings amidst the tantrums, messes, and middle of the night waking’s, and the confidence to know we are doing great at this parenting thing!
I decided to start a blog, Seashells and Storytime, where I inspire moms to prioritize their self-care and personal development. My blog led me to create and self-publishing wellness journals for adults as a way to make additional income.
While inspiring adults is rewarding, I realized through the help of my daughter, that I wanted to impact children in a similar way, so they could tackle mindset challenges early on.
I was in my mid 30’s when I started practicing gratitude, goal setting and improving my fixed mindset! I want more for my kids.
I published Thankful Thoughts Gratitude Journal for Kids in June of 2019 and it quickly took off. So many parents told me that they were thankful and excited to introduce this daily habit to their kids and I realized I had the opportunity to impact many more children.
I’ve found my passion in creating these journals and inspiring children to create lifelong habits of gratitude and mindfulness.
It’s my dream to inspire kids all around the world to express gratitude, set goals, practice mindfulness and develop a growth mindset that will prepare them to be confident, self-assured, goal-driven, positive adults.
Thank you for being part of this journey and supporting my dream!
