Spread the love!

Hi! I’m Ashley, the mom known as “Mama Joes”! I’m glad you stopped by!

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a wife, a mom, and a teacher!

I live in the Central Valley of California with my husband, our two sons, and our three dogs. As a family, we love traveling, cooking, and watching our favorite TV shows.

My husband and I love being the HOST at a function or party. We truly think it is our gift to entertain and create great food for our family and friends. 

Over the last couple years, I have found a love for cooking and trying new recipes with my family that I hope you will enjoy!

But most importantly, to the subject matter of this blog, is that I am considered a “step-parent”. I am a step-mom to my two sons through marriage, but I am MOM in their eyes and hearts. Through this blog, I’m going to share our family’s story, how I moved from “Miss Ashley” to being  MOM and Mama Joes, and even the judgements that my family has endured. 

Through this journey, I hope I can reach out and touch the lives of other moms and even dads that our in a similar situation. Because let me tell you, this role is HARD and it has not been the easiest walk in the park, but through Christ and the love of my friends and family, we have truly overcome so much. 

I hope you enjoy our family’s story and the awesome recipes and DIY projects we have to share! I hope to hear from you soon!

I’d love to hear what you have to say! Contact me HERE
