My name is Arlene. I am a working mom from Texas who spends endless hours on Pinterest. I have an only born son named Reus who we were blessed with after we lost our first boy Becken in a preterm labor. Reus calls every child a friend and I have learned from him to do the same with those I meet. He is my favorite kid in the world.

My husband’s name is Darren and he is the perfect partner for me. He supports me when it makes sense, and challenges me when I am acting like a fool.

I am a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) by trade and spent almost 10 years working full time on an army post with soldiers. I still work with the Army, but now I work primarily from home. I made the shift so that I could have more flexibility for my family.

Some days I feel physically, mentally, and spiritually strong, and some days I don’t. On this site I will share with you how I work daily for strength. It mostly involves health, fitness, and focusing on my family. I also try everything on Pinterest.
