Hey sis!

Why should women have to choose between motherhood and a dream?

I believe God has put a dream in the heart of every woman, and that motherhood is not a woman’s highest calling.

HERE’S WHAT I BELIEVE…

Every woman has a purpose, and that includes moms.

Moms can have it all, but they can’t do it all by themselves.

And you know what else?  A good laugh and a nap can cure almost anything.

HERE’S WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE…

Any woman can turn what looks like a hot mess into a thriving legacy.

Healing can happen when you realize you’re not alone.

Mom-life can transform from messy to amazing, starting TODAY. 

How do I know?

My name is Kathryn…

...and this is my story.

On the outside, my life looked good. But under the surface, I dealt with anxiety, depression, and insecurity.

A few bouts of postpartum depression caused me to disconnect from my children.

Trying to keep up with everything was exhausting.

I was struggling in my marriage. I felt like a hopeless failure.

My house was a mess.

I felt isolated.

After the birth of my 4th child, I went through an especially hard season and thought that my family would be better off without me.

 

i realized i had a choice to make...

I realized that I needed to make a choice in regards to the direction I was going in.

I read devotionals from Proverbs31.org.

I joined a MOPS group and I reached out to a few of the mothers there for support.

I started going to counseling and began looking more closely at how I was spending my time. As I got healthier mentally I began to get my house in order.

I developed a new routine for meal planning, cleaning, and keeping up with all of the day-to-day activities.

I leaned on my village for support and opening up to others. 

I joined a small group for married women at my church, and their support helped me begin healing my marriage.

God used community to help heal me.

I read a lot of books about personal growth.  A couple of my favorites are Divine Time Management by Elizabeth Grace Saunders and Kill the Spider by Carlos Whittaker.

However, cliche or not, the Bible is the one book that had the greatest impact.

It was through His Word that God showed me who I was created to be, and that my life had a purpose.

Things slowly but surely started turning around as I began to learn how to take care of myself.

I cultivated a vision for who God wanted me to be, for my family, for my marriage, and for my life.

Now, I want to show other moms that God can rewrite their stories. I want moms to discover the beauty of a life of purpose over perfection.

It’s OKAY to be a work in progress.

God can write a beautiful story with your life.
