Empowered Mother Through Faith
Don’t miss Kristin’s story in Empowered Mother Through Faith.
And if you missed last month, check out Jill Potasnik’s story in Being Authentic: The Secret Sauce.
Motherhood is a crazy journey in self-doubt and uncertainty. As a result, I find myself wishing ON THE REGULAR for a non-existent manual. In spite of this, I am convinced we can all be our own version of successful in not only motherhood, but also life. Additionally, it's WAY MORE FUN to do this motherhood thing surrounded by a supportive team. Therefore, let's enjoy the perfectly imperfect moments in The Mom Huddle!
Subscribe to share in the craziness of motherhood and feel part of a team. We definitely don't have all the answers. Even so, knowing someone else shares moments of mom guilt and has similar thoughts and feelings creates a community.
One of my favorite quotes is from Rachel Hollis in her book Girl, Wash Your Face.
There isn’t one right way to be a woman. There isn’t one right way to be a daughter, friend, boss, wife, mother, or whatever else you categorize yourself as. Instead, there are so many different versions of each and every style on this planet, and beauty lives in that dichotomy.
Did this resonate with you, too? I love it and feel it's truth. Grace for ourselves coupled with grace for others, we really can live our own version of successful. In fact, let's not just survive this motherhood journey. On the other hand, let's thrive in The Mom Huddle together.
Thank you for joining me. My hope is this brings you laughter in the crazy, connection in the lonely, and joy in the inexplicable.

THRIVING BEING PERFECTLY IMPERFECT
Kristen is first and foremost a Christian. Then a wife to Noah and mother to Max. Additionally, she works as a Director for EDGE Mentoring, a Christian-based organization providing whole-person development through mentorship. One quick conversation with Kristen and it’s amazing to witness her deep faithfulness. Admittedly, sometimes I hear people talk about religion and there is a part of me who questions if it’s as deep to them as they claim. Are they saying this to convince me or themselves? Do they TRULY believe with such a deep...
Authentically speaking, crossing the threshold into motherhood is an amazing while simultaneously terrifying moment in time. Jill experienced this firsthand, but in a slightly different manner than you may be envisioning. During a successful sales career, she also became a stepmother to triplets. She and her husband, Matthew, are the proud parents of triplets, Henry, Hannah, and Ella, as well as the daughter they share, Lexi. In awe of this abrupt jolt into motherhood (I feel like that’s putting it lightly!), Jill’s next comment...
The ripple effect of Crystalynn’s shift in identity and self-confidence led to paying it forward. Supporting moms to put themselves ON and AT THE TOP of their to do lists. INTRO TO CRYSTALYNN'S IDENTITY AND SELF-CONFIDENCE What happens when you finally achieve the “look Mom, I made it moment,” only to discover you are actually miserable? When Crystalynn found herself in this spot, she first harnessed the incredible resiliency she’d built through life’s curveballs. Next, she connected to her why focusing on identity. And finally,...
The burden of expectations tends to fill our lives. For example, we walk into motherhood thinking - I'LL be the different one. I can handle it all. In fact, because we see other women around us caving to the burden of expectations, we now know the prescription to make our own experience different. Cracked the code, so to speak. To be fair, you probably are different. Furthermore, you set your life up to address or even avoid the struggle you see others face. Good. This means you are observing, learning, and evolving. However, the...
