About me

Over the last few years, the different platforms have grown and morphed, but the fact remains that making videos is a form of self care for me, and it gives me the opportunity to share my most personal moments and thoughts with you. I believe that our lives can truly be transformed with the Word of God, and I like to use the Bible and encouraging words to inspire you towards becoming a better person not only for yourself, but the people you love the most. I hope you’ll enjoy my videos, and I encourage you to get in touch for feedback, possible collaborations, or just a thumbs up!




My name is Shayla, but in the Internet world I go by JunkDrawerMom. In 2016, I was a struggling mother, new to being a stay at home mom, and tired of pretending like I had it all together.  Everyone wants to talk about what happens as a child grow up, but those folks never really address how you as a parent changes. What’s up with that?

​Juggling a marriage, 4 children, homeschooling, and ministry & home responsibilities takes a lot of work! Growing in motherhood takes time, dedication, and even a little discomfort. There are fears, insecurities, struggles, and victories.


As I started going to God about my own fears, He began showing me that His power is revealed through my weakness. (2 Cor. 12:9) Therefore, it's okay to be weak. It's okay to not understand everything. It's okay to ask questions. It's through these things that God is shown to be strong in our lives.
