Hi! My name is Kate Skero and here is my family. That big handsome guy on the left? He’s my husband. We were crazy enough to get married just ten months after we met. I was 19 and we were going on our sophomore year of college at the time. We’ve been married for six wonderfully chaotic years now.
That medium size guy in the jersey? That’s my spirited threenager. He was born two weeks after I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in print media. The timing was either perfect or insane, but either way I wouldn’t change it.
We’re a family that loves bike rides, big cities and beaches. We enjoy overpriced cupcakes and oversized sunglasses. We live minimally, but love liberally. My husband and I have just the two boys right now, but are trusting the Lord with the number of souls He chooses to entrust to our care in the future. We’re striving to view them as the blessings that they are in a world that wants us to believe that they’re burdens.
So for now, these are my two little souls. And as their mother, it’s my calling to nourish them. And I mean “nourish” in the most holistic sense of the word. I nourish their bodies with nutritious food and joyful play, their minds with thoughtful conversation and good books, their hearts with laughter and affection, and their souls? Those can only be nourished with love–and lots of it.
As mothers, that’s what we all do: we spend our days and sacrifice ourselves to nourish the bodies, minds, hearts and souls of our little ones. It’s an important job, I’d even call it the most important job. And that’s why I’m here, that’s why Nourishing Little Souls exists, so that we as mothers can come together to encourage one another, laugh together, share stories of joy and grief, hardship and reward. Let’s grow together and learn from one another, sister. Let’s nourish our little souls.
