8 Mood-Boosting Daily Habits to Support Your Postpartum Mental Health

April 11, 2022

Postpartum… the best of times, and sometimes the worst of times. Am I right? The postpartum season is so full of ups and downs, which is to be expected. The high highs of having a new baby to love will leave you feeling like you can do absolutely anything, but the low lows that can often accompany this life changing time… that part’s a little bit harder to talk about. In this episode I’m sharing with you a little bit of my story when it comes to postpartum and giving you some habits that will help support you if you find yourself struggling.

The One Thing You Need to Know About Finding Purpose as a Stay at Home Mom

January 31, 2022

One of the most common reasons I hear people say why they could never stay home with their kids is “I just feel like I don't have a purpose outside of being a mom anymore” and, “I want to have a purpose outside of motherhood.”

 

I want to debunk that myth and encourage you if you’re feeling this way or you’ve found yourself saying something similar.

 

Today I want to share with you the one thing you need to know about finding purpose as a stay at home mom.

3 simple ways to connect with your kids and invite more joy into your home

3 simple ways to connect with your kids and invite more joy into your home

January 13, 2022

I don’t know about you, but the older my kids get the more I find myself feeling like I hardly even look them in the eyes some days. They are busy toddlers moving from one thing to another at a million miles an hour and I get caught up wrestling babies and chores and to do lists… it’s no wonder I feel like I miss them even when they’re right next to me all day.

 

It’s because we’re lacking true connection.

 

We are coexisting with our kids instead of connecting with them.

 

So on the podcast today I am sharing 3 easy ways to connect and have fun with your kids again and, I promise, they take little to no extra effort on your part! We are all about minimum effort, maximum results around here.

5 scriptures to memorize if you’re feeling overwhelmed + a candid prayer over you as we enter the year ahead

December 29, 2021

To end the year out I wanted to share with you 5 scriptures that have carried me through some of the hardest, most overwhelmed days I've had as a mom. This calling of motherhood isn't easy, but scripture is riddled with verses that we can turn to when it feels too much. 

I'd recommend writing these down and studying/memorizing them. I love the Enduring Word app for commentary!
