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.

Laura is a mom of 5 through birth, adoption, and fostering.  She's an artist from Nashville (because that's where the artistic people are, right?) and I wanted to talk to her because of the amazing way I see her love her community with her kids. She's got some important wisdom regarding simplifying kindness and doing few things really well. 

What we chat about:

  • family reunification
  • feeling like your not smart enough to read the Bible
  • talking to kids about their adoption
  • quitting extra things to focus on what matters 

Share the struggle!

I want to hear YOUR thoughts on this episode!  If you've been encouraged by the show, please share it with another mom.  The struggle is real.  We might as well do this together!

Nancy Ray is a ridiculously talented photographer, wife and mom.  She started something called a contentment challenge that I really didn't want to talk to her about because I knew it would cause me to make a change.  Whether you admit it or not, you need this chat too. You're gonna love/hate this conversation.

what we chat about:

  • the important difference between good stress and bad stress
  • defining yourself with one word
  • how she found herself a "real" hobby
  • a family tradition she will continue

This sweet mother of six babies has a lot going on!  She has gleaned a lot of wisdom that we get to benefit from today.  She speaks today about adoption, being a bi-racial family, how to not completely break the bank every Christmas and what she does to survive summer break. 

What we talk about:

  • the importance of taking conscious breaks throughout the day
  • how she intentionally makes each kid feel special in a large family
  • fun ways to add structure to breaks with kids
  • the balance between celebrating your children's stories publicly and letting them tell them at their own pace

Back by popular demand, we are talking to the lovely Brandi Lea about...trauma. Yours, your friend's, your family's.  This is a jam-packed episode full of so many valuable insights.  I said, "so good" so many times during this episode, I annoyed myself.  Don't worry, I edited most of them out.

what we chat about:

  • why it matters that we get healthy
  • what our freedom exposes in other people
  • the importance of validation in healing
  • her one piece of advice for walking through trauma with someone
