My name is Elizabeth. I am a wife and a mother of two. I worked in health and fitness before starting a family, but now I’m a stay at home mom concerned with my family’s well being. And, honestly, I’ve never worked so hard in my life.
My faith is my driving force; it’s the authority on how I think, what I do, and who I am. I’m an introvert by nature and its hard to pry me out of my house on more than a Sunday morning but I have a deep love for people and a desire to help people live a whole and healthy life.
I grew up with hot summers and mild winters where my roots were planted deep in the south: sweet tea, peaches, butter beans, coffee, pecans and “y’all” were a staple; sir and ma’am were a requirement. My personality is seeped in the richness of traditional values and southern hospitality.
My world was turned upside down when I became sick in my late 20’s and was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue and Hashimoto. In my early 30’s I was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease called Relapsing Polycrondatisi. How I lived was radically changing and it was molding how I appreciated life.
TemperMe was born out of the struggle of life. I needed hope. Something to hold on too when disease tried knocking me down again. I needed healing, not just physically but emotionally.
Everything that was happening, all that I was going through was forcing me to grow, all at once. I needed someone to stand beside me. Someone with truth on their lips and hope in their heart, someone with FAITH. I needed to become that person…to pick myself up, dust off the last battle, and regain focus for the future.
My most whispered prayer in life is that God would refine me and create in me a person of excellence; that I would bring joy to Him. And, when my life was at its new beginning, He would welcome me with those coveted words “WELL DONE!”. I hope you will join me in creating a life of excellence for ourselves and our families.
