My name is Christian Moon, and my husband is Deondray. I have 2 children ChriShawn (14), Draya (4) and I have a bonus son Deondray Jr (20). I have been living in Michigan my entire life and recently decided to start an organization called Ambitious with a Purpose – an organization to help moms prioritize taking care of themselves while being great moms. I coach many women in the metro Detroit area and volunteer at a few organizations that align with my company’s mission. I also created a guided journal for moms to aid in this mission. The journal is a coaching tool to help moms implement “me time”, set boundaries, implement self-care routines, create their own personal bucket list, etc. We also host many different events for moms right here in Michigan such as Mom brunches, vision board parties, etc. When I am not out helping other moms become the best women, they can be I am spending time with my kids and exploring the cool places Michigan has to offer.

Best Park/Playground: Handy Park (Redford)
We love this park because it is minutes away from the house and has so many things to do such as a skate park for my son, a playground for my daughter and a walking trail, and outside exercise equipment for me.
Best Family-Friendly Annual Event: Redford Township Fireworks
The kids love the fireworks show and they also host a carnival that same weekend while doing the fireworks show.
Your Mom Must-Have: Honest Kids Sanitizing wipes
I chose this because it seems kids are always making a mess or touching every surface they can while out. Sanitizer is great but the wipes are better when it comes to cleaning up messes and spills while on the go.
Best Fall Destination or Event: Plymouth Orchards & Cider Mill
We love picking apples, drinking apple cider and they have the best Carmel apples.
