Hello, I’m Monica.

Welcome to “Home Is My Happy Place”. A parent’s lifestyle blog run by a multi-passionate soul.


Yes, it’s having way too many things you’d like to do, so much that it stops you from moving forward with one thing. At least it did for me. All I knew, hands down, was that I wanted to help people, and in particular children. Finally through close examination of myself, I decided to turn something I had been doing for years into my career… motivating and helping people through advice or talk. So I became a certified life coach. And since, my life has unfolded unforeseen opportunities which have helped me further along my career. I now coach/mentor, I present on parenting concepts in schools, and hold parenting classes. 

My Blog And What You’ll Find

Lots of parenting stuff!

As a life coach, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about the concerns, wishes, and thoughts of our children, directly from them! And so, I’ve put together and share with you, key points to ten simple parenting concepts that can make a world of difference in the relationship between you and your children.

Along with lots of cool stuff for the munchkins, cool places to visit with them, places to shop for them, projects to do with them, and perhaps my favorite, street style!

I also share some of my personal experiences, such as teen pregnancy, depression, my daughter leaving to college, and everything else that happened in-between, the great stuff happening now, and the amazing things that the future holds, God willing.

Home Is My Happy Place

Please Notice, a Happy Home, not a Perfect Home!

From a wife and a mother of two, I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting.

Happy Reading,
