Essential Keeping

Being a mom should change you. Not erase you.

I’ll be honest; there have been times that I have no longer recognized myself. Motherhood had– and still sometimes does– completely taken over, and I was forgetting what I loved. What gave me joy.

Who I was.

I couldn’t find time for me, or God, or any of the habits I used to have or the creative outlets that energized me.

All work and no play makes Momma a dull woman. And a sad one. And a cranky one.

We say we would sacrifice everything for our kids, and we do. But in the process, what message do we send them? What message do we send to our little girls that all a wife and mom does is clean and run errands and not have time to stop and enjoy even the little things? What message do we send our boys? That women are meant to be in the home and cook and clean and nothing else?

That’s not the message I want to send my son and daughters.

I’m on a path to remember who I was and find who I am now– with the improvements of the heart and character that the sanctification of motherhood is working in me. I want to be the best version of who I can be to accomplish what God wants from MY life, and to teach my kids that mothers can take care of each other AND feed their own souls.

We are essential, fellow momma. YOU are essential.

YOU are worth keeping, just as much as your house.

It’s my passion to make a Mom community that is just that– a MOM community. No cleaning questions. No “does this poop look normal?” posts. But “I used to do ____________, and loved it. How can I do that now?” Or “I want to do _____________ but don’t where to start. What could this look like?”

Consider our group your mom dream think tank– a culture of mothers creating and shaping their dreams and passions, with an army of fellow women behind them, cheering them on.

We are waiting to cheer for *you!* Join us!
