About Thou Shall Not Whine

Thou Shall Not Whine is run by me, Jeniffer Do Nascimento. It is my prayer and goal for this site to be a useful and encouraging resource for moms.

The purpose of Thou Shall Not Whine is to encourage and equip moms as we journey through this life trying to raise our children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord while trying to keep the house somewhat clean and food on the table without breaking the bank.

A Little About Me

I’m a 30-something Christian, married to my best friend, Ray, and we live in Southern Indiana where we homeschool our six beautiful children. Our kids are 18, 15, 6, 5, 3, and 1. We are currently in our seventh year of homeschooling, and this year we are teaching preschool, 1st grade, and 10th grade. My oldest son graduated last May and is living on campus at a university.

A few random things about me:

  • Reading aloud to my children is my favorite “school” activity.
  • My birthstone is a coffee bean.
  • I’m a budding gardener.
  • I love books- we have them in every room of the house.
  • When I was in third grade, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. My wish came true ;).
  • Before homeschooling, I earned a medical degree. I’ve never used it.
  • I probably own 40 binders. I may have an addiction.

Homeschooling my brood is made easier by being on the Homeschool Review Crew. As part of the Crew, I am able to review many homeschool products. Over the years I’ve written a lot about our homeschool journey!

Frugal Living

Having a large family means that I am always on the lookout for the frugal way of doing things. If I can make it, I don’t buy it. This way of thinking also extends to a lot of DIY.
