More Than a Mom

So what’s this all about?


More than a Mom is a mission. It started out as a program to help pregnant women decide what to do.
More than a Mom is a circle. Sometimes we find that we all feel a little helpless, a little needy of direction, support and motivation.
More than a Mom is a statement. Over thirty years ago someone told me that all I should ever want to be is a wife and a mother.

If you’ have continued to read this you probably just gasped and said some expletive worthy of a sailor.  Every woman who has ever had the opportunity of becoming more would agree. I do too. Now.

But when this “direction for life” was given to me I was just a young mother of two who wanted to be more than that. I had dared broach the subject of running a business or going to college to my husband but I knew it wasn’t going to happen. He just laughed at me, told me what I was supposed to be and then told me that I wasn’t even good at that.  I had traded my college scholarship and everything I thought I would be someday for an arranged wedding.

I didn’t get back to that degree until thirteen years later.  Oh, but that’s a whole different story.  Fast-forward to today – I am stepping out from behind my desk, shaking off the work garb and putting on my momma hat to talk to you straight!

I have seen things girl! Oh, honey you have no idea! I have been through hell and back, got the t-shirt and aching to go home. It was exhausting.

Whoever you are, wherever you are in life; pregnant and deciding, already a mom or an empty-nester caring for your parents now, I don’t want that for you. You deserve so much more! You should become all you ever wanted to be AND a fantastic mom! You should do that with a cheerleader in your corner, an experienced leader over the tightropes, a guide maneuvering you around the pitfalls, and a coach jumping over the hurdles with you. I wanted that. I would have given anything for that. And now, YOU have that! I will be your very own Momma Motivator. Why? Because you’re the best thing that’s come along since sliced bread and because I love doing this!

More than a Mom is about giving you what you need to make healthy, successful choices so that you can become what you were intended to become – whatever that is.

If you need a shoulder to cry on or a friend to jump up and down with, I can do that. If you need advice on how to survive today or how to move forward tomorrow, or someone to pray with, I can do that too. There’s nothing like advice from someone who has been where you are and come out the other side.

Why not contact me below and tell me a little about what you’re up to in life now? I absolutely love hearing the stories. Honest! Or schedule a call to discuss my mentor program. Take a peek at our calendar to see if there’s an upcoming class, webinar or seminar you’d like to attend, and if you are in a position to do so, plan your own group of moms I can come and speak to! Or just check out the blog as often as you like to see what new fun and hacks we’re talking about! It’s all here for you…yes you Ms. Just-a-mom…

You ARE more, so BE more!
