About Me









Hi, I’m Selene, welcome to My Daily Ten.

I’m an article writing, novel reading, happily married mama living in sunny Arizona. My life is busy and full, and that’s the way I like it!

My passion is finding tips to inspire, simplify, and succeed, and sharing them with you.

I love taking my daughter to the park and library, dancing with her to silly songs, and helping her make blueberry pancakes on Saturday mornings. I’m an avid cook because I love to eat. My biggest caloric weaknesses come from cinnamon rolls, peach cobbler, and Dutch Brothers coffee. As a former banker I’m a bit of a finance fanatic and enjoy balancing my checkbook and the satisfaction that comes from crafting family budgets that actually work.

I enjoy exercising (usually) and am a big fan of Lindsay Brin’s Moms Into Fitness programs. (Kayla sometimes does them with me, using her pink 1 pound weights.) Other than that, I’m a raving fan and member of Carefree Church, and try to live each day grateful for God’s blessings in my life.

My natural strengths (per StrengthsFinder) are in leadership, ideation (connecting ideas and turning them into reality), strategic thinking, goal achievement, maximizing results, learning and teaching, and building and sustaining relationships.

Feel free to send me an email any time. I’d love to get to know you, hear your story, and share prayers and support.  Hope to chat soon!
