My name is Elizabeth. I am a wife and a mother of two. Before starting a family, I worked in health and fitness, 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.
I’m an introvert by nature, and it is 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 whole and healthy lives. My faith is my driving force; it’s the authority on how I think, what I do, and who I am.
My personality is steeped in the richness of traditional values and southern hospitality. My roots were planted deep in the South with hot summers and mild winters. Sweet tea, peaches, butter beans, coffee, pecans, and “y’all” were staples in everyday life. Sir and ma’am were a requirement.
My world was turned upside down when I became sick in my late 20s and was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue and Hashimoto’s Disease. In my early 30s, I was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease called Relapsing Polyandrous. How I lived was radically changing and molding how I appreciated life.
TemperMe was born out of the struggle of life. I needed healing, not just physically but emotionally. I needed hope—something to hold on to when disease tried knocking me down again.
Everything that was happening and all that I was going through forced 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 is 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.
