The Strong Homemaker

Hi! My name is Courtney Sohler. I am a woman of many tasks. Ready? I am a traveling, homeschooling mom of 2 wonderful children–Evelyn and Johnny. I am married to an absolute dreamboat of a man, have been for 16 years now. (Yes, I married young, but that just means I have a lot of wisdom to share!) I am also my husband’s caregiver after he was wounded serving in Iraq in 2007 (within the first year of marriage). We have two great dogs: a German Shepherd named Stormy, and a Tibetan/Old English Mastiff Mix named Gus!

I mentioned that I travel. Our family is traversing the United States in various AirBnBs. You see, I am currently working on my college degree at Southern New Hampshire University. (You are never too late to get an education!) My focus is business and entrepreneurship and marketing. As I began school and started our new travel life, I chose to start my own business in Las Vegas, NV. I opened TSH Marketing in August of 2022 and have been thriving ever since.

My Calling

Growing up, my grandma was one of my role models. Her recipes inspire a lot of what I cook and bake to this day. I also have my mom. My 5th grade teacher used to call her “Martha Stewart”. My mom is so crafty. This is not my forte, but I’m working on it.

I married at 18, to everyone’s surprise. However, there was so much I did not know. The phone rang on December 26, 2007…..it was supposed to be our last phone call, as he was not supposed to make it. Those experiences changed my life and my perspective forever. Over the years, I have learned so much about being a wife, a mother, a friend, caregiver, a daughter, and so much more. I have tackled challenges with ADD/ADHD, learning focus and task management without medication. (This took a really long time, it didn’t happen overnight). My house is not perfect, my hair isn’t always great, I may not be the perfect homemaker, but I am THE STRONG HOMEMAKER.

My Grandma--my inspiration as a homemaker

In a world full of uncertainty, I looked to her memory for inspiration and to discover how happiness starts at HOME. In loving memory of Julia Vanderweel.
