Meet Alyssa

Welcome to Mama Loves Well!

I am a mom in Texas.  I have a husband, 4 kids, and a dog.  I have crazy, I have chaos.  You do too, am I right?  Life as a mom doesn't generally have much calm.  So I'm on a mission.  A mission to add comfort and calm to this little gray house we call home.

This blog is my place to share tips, ideas, and information about how I have created comfort in the midst of our chaotic home.


Fun Facts About Me

I like to say I grew up a nomad.  That's not strictly true, but I did live in 17 houses in my first 17 years.  I call central Illinois the home of my childhood, but when I met my handsome dude and married in 2004, I moved to central Indiana.  My first baby was born in 2004, followed by 3 more babies over the next 11 years.

I have spent many days slogging my way through the chaos of life with 4 kids, thinking about what I would say if I had a chance to sit down with a new mom for coffee.  Then I had a few new moms actually ask me for advice.  After I recovered from the shock and thought of something semi-profound (at least in my own mind) to say, I decided to actually do something to share more with struggling moms and I started this blog.

 I am a "momprenuer."  I run a business (yes, besides this site) from home while the kids are here too.  It's a challenge but completely rewarding!  I enjoy helping others learn to live clean and get healthier, and I've found an amazing company to partner with to help me do that.  Looking for a way to make some extra cash?  I may be able to help (email me alyssa.mcgrew@gmail dot com)


I spent 3+ years living in Bulgaria, and Eastern Europe will always be dear to my heart.

My hobbies include scrapbooking, reading, blogging, cooking, and any snatches of peace and quiet I can find.   I drink coffee every morning without fail. I'm generally sarcastic, have a twisted sense of humor, and love my family more then life.  

I hope you feel welcome and find something encouraging and useful here!  Thanks for stopping by.
