We’ve all heard the saying, “I was a really good mom before I had kids.”


Balancing motherhood and life is hard and can often feel overwhelming.


You’re trying to take care of your kids, manage a house, get meals on the table, take care of yourself, be present, be a good wife, be a good friend, be a good mom, and on and on. It’s no wonder that many of us feel like we’re failing and can’t keep up. 


It’s easy to feel defeated when you look at the highlight reel on social media.

You wonder why everyone else seems to have it all together and you can’t seem to balance motherhood and life. You’re not alone. I promise, if you talk to any mom, you’ll find we all feel the same way. 


But you were made for this job. You were made to be a mom to the kids you have and you are equipped to do so.
