Darlene Rogers

Hello Middleville my name is Darlene and I am excited to join this wonderful, informative group of caring individuals. I arrived in this area in 2004 and intend to remain as close to the coast as possible. My husband and I have been married for eight years and have a busy blended family of seven. Yes Seven! We have two daughters, three sons, a Poodle and a Rottweiler yet somehow we blend well. I guess that makes Nine! Each child participates in at least two extra- curricular activities,(athletics , social organizations or academic) which means we can tell you the best place to sit on any bleacher as well as which school has the best popcorn on the east coast. Our children range from 19 – 13 years old with completely different personalities. The oldest son is serving our country in the Army and our oldest daughter is in college. The youngest three are currently making career plans from high and middle school. Human service is my field of choice and miraculously completed a masters degree with my busy family schedule last year. I’m currently working in a Human service position with some of the best Marines and their families in the country. It is my pleasure to aide those that due to unforeseen circumstances, need a bit of assistance. My passions are spending time with my family, reading, writing, photography, sketching and cooking. I am looking forward to this new journey here in Middleville, so buckle up as we tour life as we know it.


Hello and welcome, I'm Denise Woodard. I am a mom of three, 24 year old daughter who works for Howard University in Washington, DC, 21 year old daughter who is a US Marine currently serving in Jacksonville, NC and a 12 year old son, who aspires to be a professional basketball player. I am a native Washingtonian, a U.S. Army Veteran, an African American Personal Development business owner, a professional sales trainer,an author,and a blogger. I mentor women in community shelters & started a Living in the Moment book club in 2011 with my twitter followers (@1maiose) to encourage personal development and reading. I look forward to sharing information with the Onslow Mom Talk Community. I encourage you to be involved, a community is only as strong as it's weakest members testimony, so please be active and share, your story or insight may be the very thing another mom is dealing with for the first time. This is my 3rd time as a pre-teens' mom so I will share real time and past experience. Please feel free to follow me on twitter and email me, but most importantly make sure you respond to my post to encourage one another and I would love your suggestions on particular topics you are dealing with and would like answers or insight. With Mom Love, D.W.
