Ready to take your family from barely surviving to thriving? Want to create an emotionally healthy home?
Life can be hard and messy. I have struggled as a single parent, been overwhelmed as a mom of a strong-willed child and felt uncertain as mom to a blended family.
But that it NOT my whole story.
Maybe YOU are in a challenging season of life trying to figure out how to care for your emotional needs and the well-being of your family.
You know you want to continue to be the HEART of your home and take care of the ones you love. But perhaps you feel like you are running on empty and exhausted. You wonder if you are the only one who has kids that are struggling with some hard issues.
But that is NOT your whole story!
At The Reluctant Cowgirl it’s about allowing
your whole story to shine through your life.

Here at The Reluctant Cowgirl you will receive the practical advice YOU need to care for yourself and the ones you LOVE.

Hi, I’m Miranda. Thank you for visiting The Reluctant Cowgirl.
In 2002, I began working as a court advocate at a local non-profit agency serving families struggling with domestic violence and sexual assault. It was there that I discovered I loved leading groups. For the last 15 years I have facilitated a variety of groups giving people the tools they need to create healthy relationships and better communication in their families.
With this blog, it is my genuine desire to give you information that will help you create an emotionally healthy and happy family.
I am a city girl married to a country boy. He is an extrovert with big dreams and visions while I am an introvert who likes a basic plan to follow. He loves his tractors and cows and I am his reluctant cowgirl! And for some reason God thought it would be great fun to put us together! On the blog I will share some of my journey as I balance being married to a country boy and taking care of my family while pursuing my dreams on the side!
My faith in God is central to my life. I am truly thankful for how God is a gentle teacher and that He can bring good out of even the hardest times in your life.
I feel truly blessed to be a mom. Being a parent is the hardest, most satisfying job that is out there. We have entered the strange new stage of semi-empty nesters! We have 3 children. One has moved out, our second oldest just started college last fall and one sweet daughter is still at home.
I am a survivor of 3 heart attacks and was recently diagnosed with SCAD (Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection).
I love to read and I mean I LOVE to read so I usually have a couple books going at a time. I love to watch old movies, especially around Christmas as they remind me of family who have passed on. I love to travel, so anything with Eiffel towers on it is great to me.
I love parades! And when everyone stands up at a ballgame to sing the National Anthem.
Oh and I can bake, did I mention that? I have a serious sweet tooth.
So that is a little about me!
