{She Inspires} Jasmine Johnson, Blogger, Mommy, Medical Student

Welcome to my new series {She Inspires}, where I highlight young moms that inspire me in the hopes they can share a thing or two about living life on your own terms. First up is Jasmine Johnson, blogger over at Mrs. Mommy, MD. As I said in my post on moms to follow on Twitter, Jasmine is showing young mothers everywhere that nothing is impossible. It’s all possible. It’s all doable.

I’m a mommy to one extremely adorable 2 year old named Nathan
I’ve wanted to be a doctor since age 7—that’s the earliest I can remember. My dad is a surgeon so I would swipe all his medical journals that came to our house to look at all the surgery pictures. By age 9, I was going with him to the hospitals when he would round, and I would get in trouble at the nurses station because I would be looking in patients’ charts…I didn’t learn about privacy practices until later…LOL
If I could use one word (or phrase) to describe medical school, it would be “possible.” Everyone looks at me in disbelief when I tell them I am a medical student and a parent because they are two very difficult paths, but after my first year I can honestly say it was hard, but I made it (I did much better than just making it, in fact), and I am still going. It is possible.

I get my strength from God. “The joy of the Lord is the strength of my life, so I can do ALL THINGS through Christ, who strengthens me.” ~ Philippians 4:13 (It’s why med school, and anything else is possible…)

Whenever I have a moment of free time I look forward to spending time with my Nates (the hubby’s name is Nate, too) and being as “normal” as possible – i.e. cleaning the house, lazy Saturdays, organizing, cooking dinner…

My support system is an amazing family who always have my back. This includes my husband and son who are my constant cheering section, my parentals and little brothers, and the hubby’s fam too. Plus, I have some amazing friends from college who make sure I know they love and pray for me even though miles away…

My son makes me feel like no matter what degree or title I have, the most important thing I will do in my life is be his mom.

If my son can only remember one thing I taught him I hope it’s that we are here on Earth to love one another. 

I feel like a great mom when Nate does things like starts to pray in the car if I forget to in the morning, uses his manners, speaks and smiles to people. And my favorite, when he hugs and kisses me and then says “Mommy, I happy!” Love him :-)
The most surprising thing about motherhood is it keeps getting better and better! I thought it would just be this plateau of awesomeness, but it always getting more exciting!
My favorite way to unwind is watching TV (probably way more than I should), blogging, visiting family, laughing…
If I could invent one thing to make my life easier it would besome sort of teleport device – I don’t think I need to elaborate as to why…LOL


  1. Love her blog. She is really an inspiration for young moms looking to have a family, finish their education and start a career.

  2. We’re all rooting for you, Jasmine! The Lord will complete the work He began in you!

  3. Love the She inspires series. You are a great inspiration…love your focus. :-)

  4. This new series is all.kinds.of.awesome!!! AND I learn of a great new site and have someone new to root for! It doesn’t take much at all to make the day better.

  5. That’s amazing! Goodluck in your medical career! An inspiration indeed.

  6. Looking forward to this series! Mrs Mommy MD (Jasmine) has the right idea: wife, young mom & doctor! That’s so inspiring! I wish you all the best in your medical career!

  7. So incredible! What a great series! :)

  8. Okay, Tara, you’ve done it again. This time, you’ve picked the PERFECT person to start what I know will be an amazing series.

    We all know Jasmine is amazing, but am I the only one that can see her smile through the words on her blog? Didn’t think so. Jasmine is always so positive and light and you can tell from her blog that she is genuinely a fun, happy, and hardworking girl.

    Now how she goes to med school AND raise a toddler — well, I don’t know how she does it. Well, actually I do. Her faith. She writes about it all the time. That’s probably the #1 reason she’s an inspiration to me.

    Jasmine, we love you and your blog. You always say things are “thebomb.com.” Well, my friend, YOU are the bombdiggitybomb.com. Keep doing your thing. We’re watching and rooting for ya.

  9. Go Jasmine! We’re all cheering for you over here! xoxo

  10. I am so happy for her. It’s so refreshing to see sistas doing their thing. I wish I had this type of support system. Makes all the difference. Keep up the good work!
