"Mom On A Shelf" is book about how I lost myself in my role as a wife and mother. I share insight for moms who might also be feeling lost, lonely and stuck. I reveal the lessons I learned and the solutions that worked for me. You can prioritize yourself and still be a good parent! When your heart is happy, everybody wins.
"If a mother is supposed to be the heart of the family, why do we put our needs behind everyone else’s?"
"I know that children learn best by observing others around them. One day, I asked myself an eye-opening question- What example am I setting for my children when they see me putting myself last all the time? I realized that parenthood wasn’t synonymous with sacrifice, and it became obvious that I was sending the wrong message about what being a parent was all about."
"Actions speak louder than words. By constantly putting myself last, the message that I was sending to my family was that moms don’t matter. I was setting the tone for how I expected others to treat me by how I was treating myself."
"I’m just a mom who got lost and then found her way out the other side. I want you to benefit from my experience and begin to find some balance in your life too. I give you permission, to give yourself permission, to pursue happiness and purpose. I’m here to encourage you to teach your children by example, and that begins with treating yourself like the valuable human being that you are. Moms Matter. YOU matter. You’re worthy of incredible things. Your pursuit of happiness takes nothing away from the rest of the family. In fact, it adds to the depth of your role as a parent and strengthens your bond with your children. As you grow and thrive, your whole family will do the same. You’ll be admired by them, and you’ll inspire them, and It will feel amazing!
