Mom Struggling Well

Motherhood is hard. And amazing. And can make you burst with joy and frustration at the same time some days. Join me each week as I dig deep with various guests to ask how they moved from just struggling to struggling WELL.

This girl.  She's the spunky southern California artist behind HEart by CC.  She is a wife and the mom of 3 boys too!  She is a girl whose message of freedom and acceptance has been hard-won through many years of overcoming obstacles.  You're gonna love this conversation!

What we talk about: Trying to read your Bible when you're dyslexic, believing in your kids when no one else does, walking with kids with "unique needs," and what it's ok to be honestly disappointed in your current situation.

My friend Katie Orr is a girl who is passionate about teaching people how to read and understand God's word. She recently wrote some Bible studies you need to hear about.  They can take as little as 15 minutes to complete and are accessible even if you don't know a blessed thing about the Bible!  The best part: she's graciously giving two copies away to Mom Struggling Well listeners!  Follow @momstrugglingwell on Instagram for details!

We talk about how she has grieved the loss of her brother with small kids around, her strategy for diffusing drama in her house, and what her time with God looks like.

(If THAT title doesn't make you need to know more, you're dead inside.)

Megan Burns is a remarkable mom of 5 who is passionate about being an advocate for those who need one.  Her goal is to show those in need that they are both known and loved.  She is the owner of She Does Justice which is a shop that gives back a portion of their profit to a cause of YOUR choice.  Her story has lots of unexpected twists and turns (like all of ours) and I'm excited to share it with you!

What we chat about:

  • Her journey to find her birth mother
  • Her road toward adopting their daughter
  • How and why her business started
  • How she attempts to maintain balance being a working mom

Do you have those people in your life who give off a calming presence and just being around them makes you feel like everything is going to work out in the end?  My friend Rachel is like that.  She is an artist who can also say has written a book about her stray donkey.  Now not many people can say that.

What we chat about:

  • Her grown children and her perspective looking back
  • An unexpected way she shows love to her husband
  • A practical way in which they have been a neighbor to someone who needed it
  • A glimpse into life with small kids and a small business
  • How the quote "opportunity favors the prepared" has proven true in her life    

Strategy to Struggle Well

Remember: you're more likely to succeed at your plan if you make it small and actionable AND if you choose when this week you'll do it.

  • How can you show your husband (or a friend) that you care in an unexpected way this week?
  • Is there a neighbor that comes to mind who could use some tangible assistance this week?
  • What project has been weighing on you that you need to just start?

My plan: I'm going to cook a nice meal with my husband because he REALLY loves that and we will discuss Tsh's questions and celebrate his new job.
