The Brave Art of Motherhood


This book is part encouragement and part rally cry for moms everywhere who have gotten lost within the pages of their own story, undervaluing all they do every day and exchanging the beauty of who they are for a Pinterest-perfect illusion. It gives you the tools you need to overcome fear, loneliness, and inaction.

. . . .words from mothers . . . 

Jen J

mother of 5 yr old

So often I feel like I am drowning and there's no one there to help; your writing helps me feel less alone and often gives me the little boast I need to dig deep and keep going.
My 4 year old has been struggling with anxiety and we just seeing a child psychologist. I feel like I am failing every time she melts down or explodes and I don't know how to handle it. After yet another hellish bedtime I was in tears wishing that someone would tell me I'm doing a good job.  Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Heather W 

mother of twins


I want you to know how much I love your words. I can totally relate to every one. I am a SAHM of twin boys turning 5 next month, and so often I feel overwhelmed and exhausted. I get frustrated, wiped out, and do too much parenting from the couch because I simply do not have the energy to chase them one more time.

Thank you so much for showing me that I'm normal, that mothering my children is an imperfect science of trail and error, and that it's OK to not be perfect. Thank you. 


Have you ever stood in the mirror and not recognized the reflection staring back? Put your dreams on hold until tomorrow? And yet tomorrow never rolls around? Do you miss you - the you that laughs and has hobbies and dreams? It is all there and you don't have to wait until the kids are grown to reclaim you.

The Brave Art of Motherhood is a guide to rediscovering yourself. Through stories from my own life - how I got out of poverty, started a business, found happiness - we will work together to break down the patterns of our thinking that have us where we are. Stuck. Waiting. 

And instead of just identifying the excuses, we will work on breaking the excuses and anchoring our new mindset.

You are too important to wait. There is balance.

The Brave Art of Motherhood tells you how to find it.  


If you've ever wondered how your life became solely about legos, soup stains, and the pick-up line. 

If you've wanted to go after your dreams but tell yourself, "if this happens, then...."

If you feel lonely.

If you feel stuck in your life story.

If you are daring and want adventure.

If you want to embrace today.

If you're a mom.

Tash M

mother of 6

I have 6 children (aged 2-18) & I am constantly riding the rollercoaster of motherhood.  I feel like I'm failing most days - at something that is the MOST IMPORTANT to me. This morning I had a mummy meltdown & my children kissed me goodbye as they left the car for school, whilst I uncontrollably sobbed my little heart out like I had been defeated.

So thank you for your compassionate & enlightening words of strength, wisdom & inspiration. It is exactly what I needed & I felt I should thank you for reminding me that I can "always" DO THIS.

Jen K

mother to 1

Thank you for being such an honest and true voice for so many moms out there. I can't even remember exactly how I stumbled across you, but I can tell you I always enjoy and look forward to reading what you write. I am only one mother to one. One wild, crazy, full of energy, sometimes defiant and challenging and very stubborn little two year old boy. I guess I just wanted to reach out, to tell you that you've impacted my life. My outlook. My ability to know my abilities. And to me, that matters. I've learned that life is sometimes crazy, and I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks. Please keep writing amazing things.
