Welcome to our blog! We are super passionate about helping others build a strong, resilient, permanent family—especially those who are deemed disposable by the rest of the world.  We were that family!  We lived through 15 years of Ron being in prison and came out on the other end strong, healthy , and ready to change our world!

If you want to know more about us, keep reading our posts as we share crazy, real life stories about overcoming poverty, welfare, prison, and fear in order to grab a hold of our legacy. (Tijerina Story.)

Here, you will find stories about our 15 year journey through prisons as a family, the lessons we learned, how we took all the crap in our lives and used it as fertilizer to grow the things we really wanted for our family, and how you can overcome all of the obstacles in front of you to become who you have always wanted to become.

We are here to walk with you, challenge you, and inspire you.  Let us know if you want to hear about specific topics or if something we post helps you! We value your feedback, so feel free to post any comments on any article you find on this blog. We look forward to getting to know you better and helping you build a legacy for your own family!
