Meet the Hippomum

I’m Diane, a proud wife to a loving husband who is an attorney by day and golfer by night and a mom to two wonderful boys.

I am an AMI trained Montessori teacher with a Masters in Early Childhood Education. I have taught as Primary head teacher for 2.5-6 year olds and 6-9 year olds for several years. But after I got pregnant with our older son Micah, my husband and I decided that for this season in our lives, it is best that I stay home and take care of him full-time.

Twenty-two months later, we were blessed with another beautiful baby boy, Titus. img_0085

I have embraced this season of my life joyfully yet there are days that I find myself asking the Lord for an extra dose of grace to get me through the day. Every day I see a glimpse of God’s goodness and the glory of heaven through the little details in my life. As I write, I pray that my readers will find each visit as an encounter with Christ. Whether I write about a personal experience, helpful marriage or parenting tips or sweet encounters with Christ, I pray that you will be encouraged and that the spotlight will shine on Christ and He will be glorified. I write based on what I have learned and what I am learning along the way. As my husband and I strive to raise our boys in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, I pray that these entries will bless your heart as well. Our foremost desire as parents is to invest in our children and provide them with a home that embraces the love of Christ as its foundation. Join me as I navigate through the journey of marriage and motherhood with God as my navigator, the bible as our map, my husband as my co-captain and my boys as my passengers.

  3. Hi. I am really blessed to stumble upon your blog. I am actually looking for someone who can help me with homeschooling my kids the Montessori way. My eldest daughter is now a Casa 1 at a Montessori school but my husband would want to homeschool my two kids. However, I am not confident if id be able to implement montessori method at home since i dont have any montessori training and i dont know any umbrella school offering montessori method here in the philippines. If it is not much of a burden for you, i will be really happy to hear from you through email.

    Thanks so much. Continue blessing the other moms. God bless!

I hope to learn a lot from you and I hope we can just “walk-in” since we didn’t know where to pre-register. Thank you!
