10 years ago I started sharing my life on the internet in hopes to grow an online “influencer” business. Although the journey has been long, I have been very successful in doing this and I have been blessed with friends and connections from all over the world. I have created a substantial income for my family that has allowed me to become debt free, save money, and live a very comfortable life. I have done all of this while being in a happy and loving marriage; carrying, birthing, and homeschooling 6 amazing children, also maintaining a home, and STILL managing to remember to feed myself. By all worldly standards I have achieved the ultimate goal I set out to accomplish 10 years ago. I am an influencer.
It’s been quite the journey but the past 10 years is not what I’m here to talk about. The major shift I have been feeling has been in the last 2 years. I think many other people have also felt a shift. A shift in the world, a shift in thinking and a shift in our hearts. It’s lead me to much prayer and contemplation. In the last two years I have spent much time in deep thought about the way things are. The way I am. An area of my life I’m often thinking about is my job here online. I’ve accomplished becoming an influencer… Awesome! But I still feel God wants more from me, He wants something different.
I’m often seen posting what all the other influencer moms post, what the latest find is at the store, or sharing the best products in sponsored posts. And it’s lead me to wonder:
what exactly am I influencing people to do?
All of my videos have been real and authentic and I really enjoy creating content (if I didn’t I wouldn’t have done it for 10 years!) and yeah… we all need to buy things to live and yes my family really does eat all of the food we buy at Costco. But I feel like my message has been muffled under “grocery hauls” and “what I eat in a day” videos. God wants more from me, and I didn’t really know WHAT until recently.
As a Christian, I am always listening for the voice of the holy ghost. I am always praying to God to know if I’m obeying Him and doing what I should be doing. And after the birth of my 6th child, I have felt a new calling from God. A real pull to share more of what is on my heart, to share a deeper me (deeper than just my meal plan). After praying about this for the past two years, I am finally feeling like I know how God wants me to proceed.
Yes, my heart is changing.
A changed heart means my content here will be changing too. I am not leaving the internet or quitting YouTube or anything crazy like that…but things will look different from here out. No longer will I be sharing what’s most popular for views, but instead I will be sharing what’s most popular in the eyes of God. I will be sharing His goodness and beauty and what he is molding in my heart. For some of you, that means you won’t want to hear from me anymore. And that does make me sad. But for the rest of you that stay with me, I’m so excited for what is to come. So let’s grow together! Let’s learn together! Let’s become biblical wives, life giving mothers, and glorify God in our simple everyday.
Hi Tabitha. Thank you for opening up and shall look forward to future videos. Are you Catholic?
Big hugs 🤗
Congratulations! 🥳 I can’t wait to see the new content. Praying for you! This is SOOO…EXCITING!!!
I absolutely LOVE this and I’m so happy to hear you’re following not your heart, but the Lord’s. I have been following you for the past 2 years or so, our sons are about the same age (my you gest turned 2 in March) and I am due in November with my 4th. I feel drawn to your account because you inspire me to do the things I want to as a mother that I feel sometimes are unachievable. If you ever feel like your grocery hauls and motherly life hasnt inspired me, then I want to ASSURE you that you have inspired me. I was stuck in a rut thinking “I know I’m a SAHM but I don’t want to do the laundry for everyone.” But seeing you find joy in your motherly role really has helped me and I’m trying to be the mother and wife that God wants me to be.
I would LOVE to see more Christian focused content and just saying a Bible study on motherhood and wife life I would 100% jump on that!!
Can’t wait to see what God has in store for you, your family and your channel.
Can’t wait to see what lies ahead
Absolutely wonderful. Im just coming back into my faith after the death of my 30 year old Son Joshua broke me. Cant wait to watch.
Aww this make my heart so happy I will definitely continue to watch
I can’t wait too see the new content, I am 53 and have noticed in the last few years I have been heavely leaning into my faith.I am leaving everything up to God.He is the almighty,and I trust him too lead our family in the direction he wants us too go.
Yes!!! So so thankful to find someone like you!! Will stick with you because I do study God’s Word the Bible but I would like to follow along someone who i likeminded. Thank you and thank God for you🥰
I think this is amazing! I will stick by you always!! I love your content and look forward to seeing more!! <3
I am so excited for this next Chapter for you Tabitha as well as us Followers that stick around. GOD is good. ❤️❤️ I myself an excited for this new content. We are in scary times. And this is just what our soul needs.
This is so awesome to hear. Many of us need more of God and less of the world. You will be blessed by God in so many ways.
Yes! I’ve struggled with this too…I have just a teeny tiny for fun baby channel, but never know quite how to live my faith openly!
You are being bold and obeying and I’m sure you know that it won’t always feel easy!
From another Catholic mama of many, I’ll be praying for you!
Yay! So excited for you and to see what you share with all of us!

Love this and love you for having the strength to stand up for what God is calling you to do.
Well praise be to God. Praying for you – I am here for it.
That’s so amazing!! I am nit going anywhere. You will have my support. Love you! ❤️
I LOVE IT!! It is so refreshing to watch someone who is obeying the Holy Ghost! I knew I was drawn to you for a reason! Obey the Lord sister and you will never go wrong! I will definitely keep following you and the people that you do lose from this the Lord will restore 10 fold!! I love watching your channel and I was almost sad because I thought you were leaving. Very seldom do we get to watch good, wholesome, clean, Godly content!! GOOD FOR YOU!
U are a brave an courageous woman to step out of what is the norm and follow Gods will for ur life. I AM SO PROUD OF U! I love ur content but I’m sure I will love the new content even more. I’m with u all the way!
Very excited for this new content! I actually follow you because we hold similar beliefs and it’s nice seeing those lived out in the everyday.
I am so excited for you and this new adventure God has entrusted you with to share. I have been searching for a Godly mom to follow for a while now and I can’t wait to see the new content praying for you. God is so good! ! !
Tabitha! I just discovered you a few months ago at the start of my pregnancy and you quickly became my go-to pregnancy/birth prep as well as Catholic influence on the internet. As someone who is trying to grow stronger in my faith, I’m so so excited for what’s to come ❤️
Amazing! I always marvel at how God brings us down certain paths and while we may not know exactly where they lead us, He does! I am always looking for Godly Catholic women to follow on social media as I have very few in my own personal life. I look forward to “walking with you” on this new journey!
I’m so excited for your future content! 💛
Yay! I’m looking forward to your new content Tabatha. The vineyards are full, the workers are few. We need all the help we can get out here in this crazy world. Don’t be afraid! Someone told me once that the word fear not is Mention 365 times in the Bible. One for every day of the year! God is so good.

Yesss!! I am so excited to see what you have in store for us all!! God Bless
I am so excited for this change in content, although I’ll miss the other videos too. I first found your channel when preparing for my first home birth, I’m now preparing for my second and I have loved all the content you create. I’m proud of you for praying and seeking God’s plan for your channel. It’s definitely a statement of your faith. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you and what you have for us. God bless! You are such and encouragement.
Thank you for following Gods leading. It’s not always easy but it is necessary. God bless you in the coming months. I’m looking forward to your videos. ❤️
Cant wait for the new content. ❤️ Sounds amazing.
The world needs more of this. Christians have been silenced for too long. You will be blessed.
Praise God for this new change of heart! I’m so glad to follow your page!
I enjoy your posts and look forward to seeing more. 💖💖
Tabitha while I have only started following you a few months ago and initially some of your content about FlyLady is what interested me I have enjoyed your cooking videos and things but what kept me interested was the fact that you openly talked about your faith and I love that! Excited to see what’s in store!
How wonderful! The inside of you was and is the most important for me to stay. Even though I watched grocery hauls etc., I still had at the back of my mind that you are a catholic mother and so am I. And so…what is the most important, because being the dauther of God is everything.
All glory to Jesus 🙂 Will be praying for you. I’ve been really inspired by your family, knowing you’re Traditional Catholics.
I love this!! It’s such a blessing to always be placing God at the front of our lives. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future of your channel!
This is amazing. May God bless it. May your children witness it🥰
Yay, I can’t wait! Sounds so good! Ty…and hope to see you again real soon! God bless ❤️
So beautiful Tabitha! And we are here with you. I am so proud of you. God needs your voice in this world. Remember, this is a time when the darkness is being separated from the Light, especially in these last two years. He calls each of us to evangelize that Truth in some way, and you have built up a platform that God now needs for His greater glory in this new way, as you said. He will take your gifts and talent and humble offering of yourself and reach others in a special way. I thank God for you, your marriage and your family. You have already had a big impact on my life, especially when you had your little one and I had mine two years ago! You are a gift and the best is yet to come!……..
Right there with you!
Yes, I am here for it and ain’t going anywhere. It is always important to listen to the voice of God for him to direct you.
I’m here to stay. We need Christ and his loving message in this world; now more than ever! I do hope you still do some Grocery Hauls and meal prepping too. We need some lighthearted content, this world is already so doom and groom.
Love this!! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for the channel! <3
I love this! God is always calling us into deeper and meaningful relationship with Him. You are answering that by sharing and inspiring. Wonderful! God bless you on this journey and may your words be guided by the Holy Spirit.
I love this Tabitha! Our purpose as Christians is to love God and bring glory to Him. He is honored by your obedience and reverence to Him! I am excited to hear your wisdom as a christian mother. Thank you for your boldness!
So excited for this shift! 💜 Can’t wait to see what’s next. It’s so important to listen to God when he pulls at our heart. And I’m so proud of you for choosing to do that it’s not easy to make those decisions especially when you have 1 million people watching you.
So happy for you! Excited about these changes🥰
Love this! Good for you! I’ll be continuing to watch and support you!
Yes I am here for it❤️🙏🏽
Amen! We need more of this and I’m here for it!! God bless you and your family.
I love this! But… Will you also still be sharing Costco grocery hauls? 😄 I’m here for everything.
This post made me tear up with joy! Joy for you, for your family and mostly for God!! I will continue to watch your videos and your journey, even though my kids, whom I homeschooled are in college now, but you are still very inspiring! You are in my prayers! Best wishes
Wonderful 🙂 Don’t let people decide what you do. God bless you and your family.
I absolutely love and support that! God is so wonderful and I completely agree that sharing His love now more than ever is vital for the world we live in! So excited to see the new content coming!
I love this. I love your current content, but I will love this too! I don’t feel like there are a lot of influencers that share God. This is definitely needed in the times we live in.
You’re amazing and as a fellow Christian I totally understand. We aren’t in the last days, we are literally in the last seconds before we go home. God bless you and your family!
I believe in Jesus and what he can do for me and my daughter Lizzy ❤️ and I’m blessed to be apart of your channel 🙏🙏
That’s awesome. Can’t wait for the new program 🙌
I think it’s a great change and I am looking forward to see your new content.
Praying for you and your family during this hard time.
I am so excited! I can’t wait to follow you on Facebook for this venture! Praise be to God for this amazing opportunity to follow along with you on my own heartfelt journey 😊
Fellow Traditional Catholic Michigander here! Praying for you and your family! Lots of love to you all! You have my vote! 😊
Tabitha, you may not be the only one called to declare the works of our Father in our life. Thank you for being obedient.
This is awesome! I’m praying for you and your family during this time <3 When it's all over, the TRUTH will prevail!
Super baš se veselim 🙏😇
Awesome 🙌 May God bless and guide you for His glory!
Prayers for you as you seek to glorify Him!!
Obedience, yes let his Holy Spirit lead you. I look forward to your future videos. God bless you
Amen! Above all else it is of the utmost importance that what we do pleases God. What pleases man is not at all important, even though it is hard to live that through sometimes. God bless you with pursuing what He calls you to do. In my short 2 years of being born again I have experienced more times than I deserve that whenever we do what pleases God, what He wants us to do, He sees us through in ways unimaginable. He will provide and He will bless you for this decision, I’m sure of that!
Praise God! I’m all for it! God bless you and your family!
I started following you around a year ago. It took me watching a few of your videos to figure out you were Catholic and I was very happy! Love that you are following the Lord! I will be praying for you!
To God be the glory
I’m over joyed to see like minded women who love the Lord. And Glorify him in everything we do as Christian wife’s, mother’s and believers. The world shadows these biblical rolls and if your indeed a child of God you’ve read in the bible 1 John 2:15-18 – Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. We need to as children of God preach his word and give his message. Mark 16:15
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” It’s so wonderful to see your videos. Thank you so much for your message Sister! Praise God for the message he wants you to share to us. God Bless you and your beautiful family!
I guess a mom is suppose to be a good influence to their own children that learn from her. What do expect to learn from a mother? Learn that most people eat the same foods that why most mom’s choose jif peanut butter for their children to eat and that if you’re not hungry then you don’t need to eat because food is fuel for your body and if you’re not going to be using energy then you don’t need to consume too much fuel / fat.
