I'm Brooke with This Modest Mom.

Welcome to The Fervent Mama!

I’m a conservative Christian mama whose sarcasm sometimes gets her in trouble, and likely one of the most detached millennials you’ll ever find. I’m like the elderly when it comes to pop culture and I have no idea who won the Grammy’s this year, or any year. *insert yawn*

My unhealthy obsession with coffee has spawned a sleep deprived night owl who loathes mornings– unless coffee, or food, is involved. Anything Food Network, Hallmark, or time-period drama related is my escape from the mundane.

We’re pretty serious about raising tiny humans to love Jesus while teaching them to be both hearers AND doers of the word. Because nobody likes a Sanctimonious Sam. You’ll find me soaking up gobs of grace and needing much more mercy in this motherhood walk. Mommin’ just ain’t easy.

I’m often here on TMM, chatting about Christ, motherhood, and the reality of it all. But you can also find me on Instagram, reppin’ that #myrealmamalife with a bunch of other cool mamas living the motherhood dream. Poop and all.

I have no idea if I’m an introvert or an extrovert or some kind of mutation of the between, I kind of skipped that portion of the personality trends. While I’m pretty friendly, I enjoy this portion of the internet where I can be accountable for my own.

I’ve obviously got some pretty controversial, and disliked perspectives. You can find me over on Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, and Yahoo! News, spouting my “unrealistic, ancient, and bigoted” outlook on the Bible (real quotes, taken with a hint of sarcasm).

  1. Dear Modest Mum !

    You’re a pearl of the Humanity, a light in the darkness, a crown on your husband’s head !
    Stay the way you are. We all support you and love you. Blessed be you and your Christian family.
    Greetings from France.


  2. I just want to let you know that you’re not alone. Sometimes it feels as if we are. Remember that the road is narrow. I’ve often times have thought I was alone especially living out my convictions and also being young. It’s not easy. I can totally relate to you because we too have had to cut out television and other distractions that are forcing their way into our minds and taking us away from what we really should be doing. Let’s not forget about the parable of the 10 virgins. We have to be ready and sober minded and you’re doing just that. Remember Jesus kept telling us to “watch and be sober.”
    We’re already starting to see the goats from the sheep. You’re not alone sis. We’re very few out there….Very very few but you’re not alone. Just want to send you a quick encouragement and greeting as a sister in Christ. from Los Angeles California

  3. As a “Conservative Christian Mom”, I appreciate your stance on this matter. May God continue to richly bless you and your family!!

  4. I support you! I love all people and have friends who are gay, but like me and my husband they don’t kiss, touch each other in public. Like us they save that for the privacy of there home. I believe Disney pushes things down are throat. My husband and I will be watching Beauty and the Beast but my children will not. I don’t want them to think that being gay is a choice and I think if they start seeing that now they will think it is. I have friends with young kids who are now transgender, I support that because they are kids and have no idea about sexuality but know they don’t feel right in there own skin. For me it hard when your an adult and are just sleeping with whoever you want at the moment. To me Disney has a lot of flaws. I honestly feel that they are raising up girls, which is totally wonderful, but it’s at the expense of boys. Why can’t we raise both girls and boys up. They focus on “girls can do anything” and lots of commercials showing girls do everything. My son sees this and asks if boys can do it too. Come on Disney, you can do better. Why not have a serious of Prince’s that do the same think the princesses do for little girls but for little boys. I will start following your blog, thanks for speaking your thoughts.

  5. I am a gay man who has the privilege of living in Los Angeles – safe and surrounded by people who, for the most part, think like I do. I am reminded by your response to the hate mail you received that not everyone who expects tolerance for their own lives is tolerant of others.

    I respect and understand your choice – and I am truly sorry for the hate you received towards your family. Please know that there are people out there who can disagree respectfully.
