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.

WOMAN, MOTHER, AUTHOR According to a recent survey, 81% of Americans think they should write a book. EIGHTY ONE PERCENT. That is roughly 200 million people. Now, I know a lot of people.

WOMAN, MOTHER, DRIVEN LAWYER Picture this scenario with me. A church nursery on a Sunday morning. Teenage girl patiently helping entertain toddlers as they play with their blocks. However, one particular toddler continues to throw himself to the ground in a full-on tantrum. Despite all efforts, he cannot be consoled. Two adult women off to the side whispering to each other as they point to the tantrum throwing toddler, “well, you know his mom works.” First off, it is astonishing the impact a simple, thoughtless statement has as we...
