Welcome to Mom Battles!
I am so glad you clicked on my page. If you want to hear stories about family, marriage, survival, joy, illness, parenting, postpartum depression, homeschooling, cancer, risk taking, laughter, autism, identical twins, and most importantly my relationship with Jesus, you came to the right place. Jesus is a major player in my story. If he isn’t in yours, hopefully my testimony will offer you a new perspective about what it means to be imperfect and a mess, but a follower of Jesus. Christian and perfection are not synonyms! I am proof of that. By the way, my kids are really fun and we are too. I think you’ll like it here.
Welcome to the Hertzog Family!
About Mom Battles!
Here at Mom Battles, my life seems to fit well into these three catagories: Faith, Family and For Real. Because of the circumstances I have faced, I give God all of the glory. I have hit rock bottom several times and because of Jesus, I made a miraculous recovery and am beyond blessed that He continues to reveal His plans and purposes for my life. My family is extensive and supportive. My husband, kids, parents, in-laws, siblings, relatives, and friends are the best. I am surrounded by supportive people. Despite all of the happiness and perfection I created with the words above, my life is insane. That is where For Real comes in. I can’t make the stories of my crazy life up; I can only make you laugh and/or cry right along with me! Again, thanks for joining my Mom Battles!
As a 40 year old mom of four amazing daughters: Camryn (14); Brynlee (9); and identical twins, Aubrey and Courtney (8), I live a life that is never boring. I have been married to my husband Dave for 15 years. We have known one another since high school!! In those 15 years, we have battled Postpartum Depression, Autism, Life Support, Postpartum Psychosis and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. My family has recently taken on a new battle against Stage 4 Glioblastoma. My Dad was diagnosed in July and Glioblastoma just stinks. There are no better words.
