My name is Rebekah Maddux El-Hakam and I am El Momma to “The Els.” I began this blog as a space for my family over 12 years ago. It’s an honest place. It’s full of imperfections, just like this momma. It’s also full of happy posts, sad ones and the ones written to reach out to you and tell you that I’m with you. You are NOT ALONE! Although my momma experiences are not the same as yours, they connect with you and yours. And, I am forever grateful for that.
I was born and raised in Texas. Lived here until graduating from college when I followed my heart and my dreams to California. Part of my heart will always be there. Luckily, my Texas husband was also there. We met, fell in love and made our way back to Texas where we married and now have 5 earthside children (the Els) and a baby daughter in heaven. I write about what I feel. What I know and what I wish I knew. Oh, and I LOVE to cook and bake and learn and experiment in the kitchen. I share my favorite recipes right here.
Thank you for the encouragement. As I often say, encouraging others in their gifts can be one of the most empowering actions we can do for another.
love, EL MOMMA
