I have always loved blogging and sharing snippets of our home life on my social media accounts; I have been doing this since 2013 and it continues to give me Joy.
I share stories which I know many can relate to and hopefully learn from because I love it when people get to experience and enjoy the products, ideas, and tips that I talk about.
This has been such a blessing to me and my family. I have earned from it when I was still working full time, and now that I work from home as a freelance writer and content creator, my blog and social media accounts continue to be a huge gift from God because they still allow me to help my husband provide for our family even in my own little way.
I don’t have a long list of clienteles, but I am fortunate to have worked with some of the best brands in the country (and a few international brands!). Aside from earning from it, I also receive products that we can use at home. I will always be grateful for these companies that continue to trust in the work that I do even if I’m not that big in the blogging and social media world.
I’m not a huge blogger, but I am happy with the engagement that I get from my followers whenever I share what works for our family. I have friends who love the products that I recommend, and my aunts are slowly getting into things that I love (mainly home décor ideas!). And this to me is a big thing! We always start within our small community, and if I’m able to influence my friends and family into something which I truly believe in, then I know I made a difference. I am happy with that.
I pray that with God’s grace, I continue to grow as an influencer and blogger so I can reach more people because I know that this parenting and homemaking gig isn’t easy, and if by sharing what works for me as wife, mother, and a homemaker will help women out there in any way, then that will serve the purpose of what I do.
In case this is your first time to read my blog, I talk about the joys of being a wife, being a homemaker, and being a mother. Lately, I have started being vocal about my journey with Christ because I know how it feels to be so hopeless and desperate at times, and I want to be able to inspire others to embrace God’s love and forgiveness.
I take pride in cleaning and decorating our home because it means we have roof over our heads. I love cooking even if I am far from being a chef because it means we have food to share. And it is an honor to serve my husband (Mark 10:8) because God chose him to be my partner in raising our wonderful children. He is my partner in Christ.
Trust me when I say that our life is far from being perfect. We have our heartaches and challenges, and some sure felt like they were too much for me to bear, but I have learned to find my joys in the valley.
Sure, I also talk about the frustrations and hardships but mainly to inspire others and to let them know that we will pull through. Life is never a bed of roses, but we can shift our attention to the main source of Joy and Love, Christ Jesus, so we may continue to see the joys and blessings amidst everything.
Feel free to ask me questions in the comment section. I’d be happy to answer them!
Love you all and thank you for being here! <3

Yep, we definitely pull through with the grace of God. I’ve always loved your writing, Jhanis, with affiliate links or not, I’ve always felt the sincerity and authenticity, which is utterly rare these days.
Thank you, May! It means a lot to me! You and Jay are my inspirations! 🙂

Can I just say that I really love the first photo of you in your lounge room. I love your decors and the furniture is beautifully Spanish-inspired; contrasting the breezy whites with the brown. I just love the composition, overall.
Having said that, I wish my house was as clean as yours. lol.
