It didn’t take me long as a mom to realize that I make a lot of mistakes and can pretty much be summed up as a hot mess most days. I have lost shoes, let children eat Twizzlers for breakfast, forgotten birthday parties, and flat out pitched my own temper tantrums. Luckily, that isn’t the entire story. My journey has also included sweet connecting moments, learning some valuable lessons and making some outstanding memories along the way. Honestly, I have been all over the place during my twenty plus years as a mom. The most important thing I have learned is that grace is a beautiful thing. I even had the words FEARLESS GRACE tattooed on my arm so I would always remember that this mom is to fearlessly lead with grace.
We are going to get REAL during our times together. We are going to talk about real life… real motherhood. Topics will include helicopter parenting, how to really connect with your children, how to find your joy in motherhood, why every mom needs an “all by herself” vacation, how to refrain from jumping in the car and just driving away, and why saying YES is the most powerful response to a young child’s requests.
As a mother of many (both biological and adopted), I know that this mothering gig isn’t for whimps. Grab a cup of coffee (or other preferred beverage) and get ready to laugh, maybe cry, and hopefully be incredibly encouraged on this beautiful journey of motherhood.
Always remember that if this hot mess can rock motherhood, so can YOU!
You’ve got this!

We admire and respect the openness with which she lives as well as the humor and encouragement that she brings into the messiness of the life we all live!
