Here’s the #1 thing I want you to know: I am here to support YOU.
If you are a mom like me who…
- is overwhelmed by motherhood
- wants something more than the mere survival of motherhood
- wants to thrive and be intentional in your day to day journey
- want to be the mama filled with grace, joy and peace
You try to be that mama. You try to be the best mama/wife/follower of God/friend/sister/homemaker/employee – everything, to everyone.
But, it often feels exhausting. Overwhelming. Impossible.
The stress, guilt and overwhelm casts a cloud on your life that makes you feel stuck… enslaved to those dumb expectations and labels that never seem to go away, no matter how hard you try.
Meanwhile, each day is passing. Time is flying by.
And when you slow down for a second to try to catch your breath and think about your life, you have this sinking feeling deep down that you’re missing some of the very best stuff:
- Joy in this precious new time with your baby
- A passionate, connected marriage
- The things that mean the most to you
You’re tired of the unrelenting expectations and that nagging guilty feeling like you’re not being the mom your child needs you to be.
Does all this sound like I’m reading your mind?
Nope. I’m just describing myself a few years ago.
God gave me to opportunity and blessing of becoming a mom. But it was at a very inconvenient (to me) time in my life. The overwhelm, expectations and exhaustion that came with being a new mom took me by surprise. I lost myself and was quickly loosing my marriage.
The day came where I had to face it. I was given two ultimatums – face the challenge and be the mom that my son needed or continue on the path of complete overwhelm and continue to numb all the feelings of guilt, inadequacy and and anxiety.
Around the same time, my marriage was in shambles and my life was falling apart.
What I thought was mere survival of being a new mom, was actually hurting me and those I loved the most – and my husband agreed.
At that point, I made a promise. I swore to never go back to that lost person. I committed my life and motherhood to Christ and vowed to thrive instead of just survive. Little did I know, God blessed us with another little boy shortly after.
I dove head first into bettering myself and becoming a better mother, wife and Christ follower. Since that day (well, it was actually a couple months) I have studied, learned, read, prayed and committed to learning all I could so that I could help other moms never feel or go through what I went through and, if they were in the middle of it – to help them through it, help them get on the other side of survive and truly thrive in their motherhood and their marriage.
So, now what?
We have found ourselves in motherhood – we each have our own story of how we got here. It’s new, it’s exciting, its hard. But there is a way to do it. We don’t have to merely survive this season, we can thrive.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am here for you mama!
I believe the pressure and epidemic to be the perfect “pinterest mom” is truly hurting our generation of moms. It is leaving us feeling overwhelmed, under qualified, filled with guilt and anxious.
I’m not ok with that. Which is why my life’s mission is support you through this new transition in life
- through overwhelm
- through anxiety
- through depression
- through unrealistic expectations
- through feelings of guilt, inadequacy and insecurity
- through exhaustion
You don’t have to settle for just surviving your days, for guilt filled decisions, for a disconnected relationship with your spouse, for completely loosing yourself and who you are to the sake of getting through this season of your life.
I refuse to except those things, and I am not going to let you either.
That’s why I’m here–as your coach, friend, sister in Christ, and fellow mama warrior–fighting alongside you.
This isn’t just about creating a life that feels better to you.
This is about creating powerful change that causes a ripple effect in your marriage, your family, your work, and your community.
Mama, it’s about freeing you up to live a life of intention and grace, impacting our kids for the better, teaching them that they can have the life that isn’t just about survival, but that is real, authentic and filled with joy. Teaching them what a passionate, fulfilling marriage looks like, what community and supporting those around us is like, that there is grace and hope even through our struggles.
That is what gets me excited in life, and that’s what I’m here to help you tackle.
