How I Got Started

Welcome!! Life of Creed is a lifestyle and travel blog where I share my adventures of being a stay-at-home-mom and mom boss.  

February 2013, I started a blog Nippon Explorer because a few friends were looking for places to explore in Japan.  While living in Japan, I enjoyed exploring all that Japan had to offer, starting a blog was a great way to document my fun and share with family and friends the places I’ve been and things I have done. I have since moved the blog Nippon Explorer over to Life of Creed, to include more than just life in Japan.

Come and follow my adventures as I blog about family life, homeschooling, parenting, traveling, beauty, fashion, food, DIY, music & movie reviews, product reviews, and just having an amazing time enjoying life.


My mission as Content Creator + Manager of Life of Creed is to share informational reviews, inspiration, and articles about a range of lifestyle topics, homeschooling, traveling, fashion, and more.

A Little About Me

Hi, Jay! I’m a tea drinker and introvert. I have one daughter, who is referred to as Charmingly CJ in blog posts and in older posts Toddler Girl. I moved back to the United States at the end of 2014, after living abroad in Japan for four years. I am a SAHM, work-from-home-mom, blogger, photographer, blog coach, mompreneur mentor, mental health advocate, dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, freelance writer, model, Ordained Minister, and the list goes on.

I have been blogging now for a few years. But I am not a professional journalist by far, I’m just a mom sharing my adventures. My educational background is in the healthcare field.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Health Administration, an Associate of Science in Pharmacy Technician, a diploma in Medical Administration Specialist, and I am a Certified Stress Management Coach.

You can also find me over at my Jay Creed my Blog Coaching + Mompreneur Consulting website, where I’m helping moms go from talking about launching a blog to taking the action to start their blogging journey.
