About Us

Chi-town Bred, Dallas Bound

My name is Jewel. I’m a 37 year old mother to Sapphire, my thirteen year old fashionista. Get it… Jewel…Sapphire??? Yep, she’s my mini me. A former job transferred us to Dallas from Chicago almost 7 years ago and we’ve definitely been able to built a life here. We have friends who have become family and our church family that has really helped to make Dallas home.  Average Mom: Great God is a parenting blog for people like me – single parents figuring it out as we go.
