Mom Life without community? No way..

Mom life where else can you say a word that means so many things?



Mom means caretaker, doer of all the things, taking care of everyone else, chef,  chauffeur, kisser of all the boo boos and pretty much everything else. 

Mom life is Incredible, amazing, terrifying, emotional and pretty much every other feeling in the whole wide world.

It’s also pretty much the best job there is. But here in this world right now in this connectedness that we have there is no better time to be living the best mom life than right freaking now.

Are you ready to live your best mom life?

What are you waiting for?

Do you need a community of moms who love and support you in this incredible yet terrifying journey of  Motherhood? Oh and I forgot one really valid and important point, moms who don’t judge you.

I’m talking moms who if you let your kids eat cake for breakfast no big deal or if you let your five kids sleep in bed with you, no big deal. Do you need this kind of support?

Because in this world, right now what I know we all need more of is understanding of each other. If we all came together and just love to one another how incredible with the world be?

When I became a mom, I was bombarded with all of the things that I should do say buy yeah when I had questions or disagreed with something I read online there was nobody there to say that’s OK you’re allowed to have those feelings instead it was more like I was belittled for believing differently than somebody else or raising my kids differently than somebody else. 

It left me feeling despaired upset and disappointed that this is the world that my child will grow up in

And frankly I decide to do something about it, so I created this incredible group call the Unjudged motherhood project It’s a place were all moms can come and feel the love and support of whatever they need. Where we don’t judge. Because we haven’t walked in your shoes. We have no idea what’s brought you to where you are today. But we know you need love and you need support.



And if there’s anybody that can do that it’s moms. Because mom life is the best life. And if us moms began to love each other like we love our children the world would be an incredible place. And, what would we teach our children? How to love everyone too. And I’m up for a world like that to raise my babies in, how about you?

Mindfulness Activities for the Modern Day Mom

Mindfulness activities- what do those look like for you? If you are mom, like me, it might mean five minutes in your car by yourself?

We are all busy. Every single one of us. Yet I'm biased to say Moms are even more swamped. It's because we run the house, we run the show, we cook, clean and do all the things for ourselves and our family. Plus we work! Either in or outside the home! I also run a business which I'm inclined to think makes me a little bit busier too. But this isn't about a busy badge of honor, instead its about-how I can incorporate so much into my busy lifestyle so I feel my best and love the life I live!

So, what's it for you Mama, what are your goals for everyday life for you? Do you want to live your best life every dang day? I hope so. Because you're the kind of Mom I want to lock arms with and become Mamahood besties with! 

Or it might mean binging your favorite TV show after everybody else is in bed.

But what if there was a new form of mindfulness?

A new form of mindfulness that you could do that didn’t interfere with your busy life? That actually made a difference in how you felt every day?



What if you could have your sanity and your time back?

Good news is now you can! I’m sharing with you my top 10 easy busy mom packs for mindfulness.

1. get up before your kids 

2. keep your phone off until you’re ready to work for the day

3. set a timer on your phone for how long you want to scroll on social media

4. meditate for at least 15 minutes every day. Bonus, this can even be done in the car pick up line. Ask me how I know, because I know 🙂

5. Work on a schedule that works for you. If you’re an early riser get up early, if you’re a night owl do things at night to make your next day more productive

6. Plan plan plan. Meals schedules childcare planning to fail? Oh no you’re not plan that schedule

7. Get at least an hour of self-care solo each week

8.Remember to treat yourself well. Talk nice to yourself. Love yourself

9. Some days will be better than others, it’s the days when things don’t go so great and you give yourself Grace that makes a difference in the days that do go great

10.Life is quick, short, moves faster than we’d like. But what if we enjoyed every second of it?

Mindset for Busy Moms

We are all busy. Every single one of us. Yet I'm biased to say Moms are even more swamped. It's because we run the house, we run the show, we cook, clean and do all the things for ourselves and our family. Plus we work! Either in or outside the home! I also run a business which I'm inclined to think makes me a little bit busier too. But this isn't about a busy badge of honor, instead its about-how I can incorporate so much into my busy lifestyle so I feel my best and love the life I live!


So, what's it for you Mama, what are your goals for everyday life for you? Do you want to live your best life every dang day? I hope so. Because you're the kind of Mom I want to lock arms with and become Mamahood besties with!  


My Top 3 things I always recommend to my newbie moms for Mindset that are FREE: 

  1. My Growing Mamas Mind Course
  2. Listen to Abraham Hicks anything mindset on YouTube
  3. Read Dr. Joe Dispenzas books. In particulate my fav is Breaking the Habit of Being yourself
  4. BONUS: Start paying attention to your actions. Your unconscious actions. For example, every free second you have do you pick up your phone. After dinner, are you always thinking of what’s for dessert? Notice where your mind goes without you thinking about it and then decide if you like where it goes or if it needs re-framing. 
The subconscious mind is on auto-pilot. It’s what helps us breathe, digest, etc. So we don’t have to consciously think of these things. It helps take care of all this for us. It’s also sneaky in that it does things we’ve allowed it to do as auto-programs. Things that don’t necessarily benefit us. And it’s our job in growing our mind to take back control and program our subconscious to work in our favor. 

So, how do we do this? The Mama Protocol is a great course I created to help Moms live and thrive in our best life. Moms who are tired of Mediocracy who want to FEEL their best. To reprogram our minds to actually serve us. So our automatic programs in our mind, actually help us! We were meant to be our best selves. To be patient, to be kind, to feel freaking fantastic. We want to break free from the judgements we put on ourselves; looking like Sally Sue on IG all dolled up, the laundry always folded as soon as it’s done. Letting go of the feeling we need to be able to do it all. All the time. That’s what society has put on us. That’s what we were taught. And yet we are succumbing to all the pressure and judgement thinking and feeling we have to keep up with everyone else. But what if we stopped. What if we pivoted and decided that no longer worked for us? What if we got quiet and grabbed a pen and paper and wrote down what we wanted in life? What if we left our phone for an afternoon? What if you got to write your own rules on what your life looked like as a Mom?


Who says you can’t? Not me. It’s time for you to break free Mama. Break free from the judgements of yourself and everyone else. I promise when you do this the freedom you will experience will be- well nothing that can be explained. It’s here for you. The Life you’ve always wanted. And on your terms. Are you ready for it?

Let’s grow your Mama Mindset together. It’s all here.

Stress Relief Activities for Spring


Do you know the number 3 cause of disease in our Country is stress? Say what?!? And stress is 100% preventable. The top causes of poor health are stress, sugar and (lack of) sleep. And all of these are preventable. So, let’s work on getting these under control ok. We want to feel better so we can LIVE more.

Today we are going to talk about stress relieving activities for Spring. We live in the frigid north so by the time Spring comes around we can’t wait to get things cleaned up from Winter and get outside. Spring is my favorite season for a multitude of reasons; my birthday is in the Spring, Winter is long in our state and we don’t get enough sunshine, plus there’s just something about those gorgeous flowers that come in in Spring. Tulips anyone? 

Spring also means we can get outside. And grounding with the Earth leaves us feeling calm and peaceful. A feeling each one of us wants more of. How can you integrate getting outside more this spring to reduce your stress level?

Move your body. Longer days mean more time for ourselves. Get outside and move your body. We’ve often been cooped up inside so it’s time to get out and enjoy the longer, sunnier day and move. Moving your body increases endorphins which makes us feel better, So, go girl go! I’ve shared before but there is a direct correlation for me when I’m feeling stressed and anxious that the more movement I  do in a day or harder movement (running, biking, HIIT, etc) the better I feel!

Eat Whole Foods. Remember what I said about over consumption of Sugar being one of the top reasons for disease? So eye opening, isn’t it? When you’re feeling extra stressed, limit your sugar intake. Sugar plays into feelings of stress and anxiousness and then our bodies crave more making it a sick circle of more and more sugar and more and more stressed feelings. Instead of eating refined sugar, try incorporating real sugar from fruits into your diet. You might notice a detox Period of when you come off the refined sugar but the added benefits I  promise will be way worth it!

Get enough sleep. When we are feeling highly stressed in might be hard to turn off our brains and sleep each night. I get it. I’ve been there. But sleep is so important to allow our body that restorative rest it needs to function for the next day and regulate our body systems. If you’re having a hard time shutting off your brain at night here’s a few suggestions on how to fall into easy, peaceful sleep! 
    1. Read a book before bed
    2. Limit screen time (tv and phone 30 minutes before bed)
    3. Take a bath before bed. I love to take an epsom salt bath with my favorite essential oils
        4. Listen to a meditation of guided sleep

And last but certainly not least, one of my favorite things to incorporate into my life that have made a HUGE difference in my stress and anxiety level is….Meditation. There are tons of guided meditations out there that you can use on YouTube but some of my favorites are those my Abraham Hicks and Dr. Joe Dispenza. 


What are some of your go-to tips for relieving stress? I’d love to hear them below and share with my Mama Community after all, we are all in this together. We want to feel better so we can LIVE more.

All of us Mamas gotta stick together, we are all in this together and it takes a community to raise our babies and ourselves. Remember to treat yourself well!

Hello Spring Checklist for Moms


Spring means clean up, clean out and get outside doesn’t it. At least that’s my family description after a long long long winter. If you live in the North or Midwest you might get my drift?

We live in the frigid north so by the time Spring comes around we can’t wait to get things cleaned up from Winter and get outside. Spring is my favorite season for a multitude of reasons; my birthday is in the Spring, Winter is long in our state and we don’t get enough sunshine, plus there’s just something about those gorgeous flowers that come in in Spring. Tulips anyone? 

To help you prep for this Spring further I’m sharing my best laid checklist for Springtime for all of us Mamas. So, we can think less, do more and enjoy spring. Sound good? Let’s go!

  1. Clean out those closest and pantries from the long winter months. Clothes and items you haven’t worn or don’t use anymore-donate. Set your timer for 30 minutes and see how much you can get down in you house between all your closets. I bet you’ll be surprised! Work expands to the time you allow for it. So, get after it!

     2. Move your body. Longer days mean more time for ourselves. Get outside and move your body. We’ve often been cooped up inside so it’s time to get out and enjoy the longer, sunnier day and move. Moving your body increases endorphins which makes us feel better, So, go girl go!

    3. Clean. Can’t believe I’m about to type this because listen the best thing I  ever did for me and my fam 2.5 years ago was hire someone to clean my house. She quickly became family because we appreciate her so dang much. But, I’m still leaving this on the checklist for you because its important in the Spring we clean some things we’ve maybe been putting off all winter. For me that looks like Cleaning the windows (one of my least fav jobs), power washing the house, mopping the deck and sweeping out the garage (I’m super fortunate my hubby chips in and helps with lots of these). 

   4. Plan your meals. Failing to plan is like planning to fail. Read that again. Longer warmer days often call for us to want to fly by the seat of our pants. Or…is that just me? HA, I’ve actually heard from a lot of you Moms, that as the Seasons change you want to spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside enjoying the weather which I totally get! So, grab my handy meal plan cheat sheet here for an easy button on meal planning!

   5. Give yourself some grace, set realistic expectations of your spring to do list. Make a fun day out of it, or a fun themed week! Don’t think you can get it all done in an afternoon. After all, you’re raising kids and running them to all their activities so give yourself grace and time to get the things done on your Spring Cleaning checklist. 


The point in this spring checklist is to help you feel prepared for Spring and to actually enjoy it. So, don’t stress, things will get done as they get. Do the best you can and enjoy every second of this fabulous spring season! Need more Mom tips about living and loving your best life as a Mom in an unjudged community of incredible Mamas?
