Single Mother by Choice

Julie Schrader knew she wanted to be a mother, but waiting around for Mr. Right was frustrating. And then she found a choice. What she learned about herself, the journey of moving from risk-averse to risk-taking, and the freedom in releasing expectations. 

Don’t miss Julie’s story in Single Mother by Choice

———————————————————————————- 

And if you missed the last post, check out Nancy Polsky’s story in Mental Health in Motherhood.

WELCOME!

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. A few years ago, this prompted me to begin sharing pieces of my story from the vantage point as Lowey Fraternity House President. Pranks, chaos, sports every night, mom meltdowns, laughs... we've got a bit of it all going on over here.

Then an evolution of The Mom Huddle began. Women with amazing stories just waiting to be shared began emerging everywhere. Moreover, I had the platform to do just that! Inspiring women through story telling.

At the core of it, I am convinced we can all be our own version of successful. Furthermore, 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 our team. We definitely don't have all the answers (I mean, who does?!). Even so, knowing someone else shares moments of mom guilt and has similar thoughts and feelings creates a community. Welcome and enjoy!

Single Mother by Choice

Single Mother by Choice

In life, there are people who sit back and wait for things to happen. Conversely, there are those who act. Utilizing their own agency. Furthermore, feeling at choice when others may not see a path. Julie had enough of waiting for all the “right” things to fall into place to start her family. Instead, knowing her desire to be a mother, she chose single mother by choice. As a result, she utilized a donor to bring her perfect little boy Ben into the world. Everyone has a story to share. This is no different in Julie’s case. Ironically,...

Mental Health in Motherhood

Mental Health in Motherhood

I’m always appreciative of stories, tips, and experiences in mental health shared from moms who have kids, sons more specifically, a bit older than my own. It’s fascinating to hear their family focal points. What they tried. And yes, even what didn’t work. This was no exception in my recent conversation with Nancy Polsky. Nancy is certified through the same coaching program as me, but a few years prior. We were paired up in coaching bartering and I have the privilege of hearing pieces of her story through our coaching together. Her...

Empowered Mother Through Faith

Empowered Mother Through Faith

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...

Being Authentic: The Secret Sauce

Being Authentic: The Secret Sauce

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...

A Guide to Identity and Self-Confidence

A Guide to Identity and Self-Confidence

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,...

Careers, Motherhood, and the Burden of Expectations

Careers, Motherhood, and the Burden of Expectations

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...
