So many questions have popped up in the last few days–via comments on the blog, Facebook, twitter, everywhere! So it seemed like a good idea to take a blog post and try to knock out some answers! I certainly don’t have all the answers–but let’s give it a shot!

Where and when will your new reality TV show air? Our production company has made the trailer for Life By Design public and they are beginning to meet with networks. We’ll keep you updated!

Will the show air in Canada/UK? I hope the network will make the show available online–but I don’t know if it will be available abroad.

Aren’t you afraid to do a reality TV show? This opportunity is exciting and also scary! We are trying to go in with our eyes wide open. We want to let people into our family and share honestly, but we also want to protect our family. The idea behind the show is that it’s faith-based and encouraging. We aren’t interested in drama or money–we want to do something that gives hope.

How do you do it all? I SO don’t do it all. First of all I have an amazing team of people around me helping with photography, production, managing our employees, etc. And then there’s my amazing husband Steve who runs the business and keeps things moving. And you should know, most of the time my house is messy and I’m never caught up on laundry. Life is crazy but good.

Do you ever wear a tshirt and tennis shoes?  Not really. On Saturdays I’ll often wear a skirt and denim lacket with flip flops. If we are planning a trip to Disneyland or the zoo I’ll wear converse, jeans a flowy top. I love getting into my jammies after dinner and cuddling on the couch with a cup of decaf.

What products do you use on your skin? I use Nuetrogena anti-wrinkle cream during the day and anti-wrinkle night cream at bedtime. For cosmetics, I buy grocery store brands. Nothing fancy. I’d like to use the good stuff, but maybe I’m too cheap?

What products do you use in your hair? I use Herbal Essence totally twisted mousse and hairspray. After a shower I put mousse {a lot} in my hair, then hairspray and then I use a diffuser to blow dry my hair.Putting hairspray in before I blow dry seems to keep the curl together better.

How do you stay so positive all the time? I don’t. I mean, yes, in general I am happy and thankful. I love my little family and although David has a severe disability, I’ve accepted that and I don’t dwell on it. I have down days, where I let myself be sad and cry. But I can’t live there. There is too much life to be lived. This is my life–I can either embrace it or complain about it. I choose to embrace it. Despite the pain, there is joy to be found.

How is David doing? Do you have surgery scheduled? David is doing great! We have an appointment with our pediatric ENT tomorrow in LA. I’m curious what he’ll say about David’s sinuses and the cyst above his left eye. In general, David is feeling good, he’s less congested and super energetic!

 Do you have other questions for me? Leave them in the comments and I’ll try to answer them there!
