Hello From Book Lady Katie
Hello! My name is Katie and I am so glad you have found my page. I am the proud wife and mother of two sweet girls with a baby on the way!
let me tell you a little about myself! I started this business just 3 short years ago because I was struggling with postpartum depression and wanted something to call my own and get back into a bit of my education background. Never in my life did I think I would be in sales. If you would have asked me a year ago if I would be a direct sale consultant and I would have told you-you were crazy. But God had bigger plans and knew how much I would love it and how this company would bless our family. I love how UBAM promotes a product that is so needed in our world, not just literacy but the importance of connection through reading. The power of a parent or person reading to a child can not be replaced. We need more people that believe in the power of holding a book in your hands and reading it or reading to someone! Peter Usborne our fonder not only believes in the power of Literacy but also the importance of family first and this is why he has based this company around a child's product and made the company the way it is.
Now a bit about our family - because this business doesn't just benefit me! It has been so great for our kids and I couldn't do it without my hubby. My husband is my biggest support and loves that this business allows me to use my passion for kids and literacy and provide an amazing library for our girls. He also won't complain that we have earned to FREE vacations through UBAM! An Alaskan Cruise and All-Inclusive trip to Punta Cana.
Our girls - Adeline is our oldest - she is 5 and is our rule follower, book lover, loves Jesus, ask millions of questions and is a very loving and compassionate big sister. Gianna is 4 and is a daredevil, always smiling, loves the water and wants to do whatever her older sister is doing. Both of our girls think that mommy being a book lady means they should get new books whenever they want them. Not quite how it works ;) But I love that our girls love books so much!
We also are expecting baby number 3 in February! We are very excited, we do not know the gender and I am so ready to not feel sick anymore. But I also try to keep reminding myself what a gift it is to be pregnant and that we love talking to the baby in mommy's belly ;)
I am so glad you have found my page and this amazing company. Please let me know if you ever need help picking books, want to know more about the company or just need a mom to listen! I am here and so glad we are not connected.
