I’m Kelley Spencer, a Christian writer, gardener, nature lover, traveler, wife, and stay-at-home mom of two boys. A woman always wearing multiple hats you might say (I tell ya – women can do it all!) I grew up just outside Minneapolis, Minnesota, moved to Florida for a 5 year long adventure (more on that below), and then moved back to Minnesota, embracing my ‘you betcha’ Midwestern roots and being closer to family.
In my early 20s, I styled hair and makeup at a local salon. After five years of being in the beauty industry, I graduated from Concordia University St. Paul with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies. My husband, myself and our two black labs made a bold move down to Tampa Bay, Florida. Trading below zero temperatures for palm trees and sunshine – yes please! I initially worked for Walt Disney World (ohh the perks!) and then built my career in digital marketing (specifically content creation and social media) for the remainder of our time. I also led the kids ministry team at our local church each Sunday.
So here I am living back in Minnesota as a full-time mom with both of our families close by. Motherhood is quite a crazy adventure – you never know what each day will bring, especially with two wild boys, but I’m so grateful for all the memories we’ve created together!
In my spare time (wait, what spare time?), I’m either digging my hands in the dirt, hiking a local trail, planning my next adventure, or taking notes in my Bible. I love spending time outdoors in my garden, on my paddle board or practicing yoga and meditation. Curling up with a good book or writing is one of my favorite things to do after a long day of mom duty.
