Faith is such a dear sweet person, just the sound of her voice will soothe you into a lull! She has experienced the heart breaking trial that many mothers and hopeful mothers experience- infertility. She has miraculously been able to give birth to two daughters- with a third baby on the way! I love the perspective she has on experiencing hard things and how her eyes were opened to the benefit of allowing others to shoulder your burdens with you. Her struggles have opened up doors and conversations with other women experiencing the same pain. She is also an accomplished entrepreneur with a thriving ecommerce business! 4EverrMemories can be found here---
Ok ok, it's not what you're thinking. Or maybe it is, depending on how much you thought that one out. It could sound like the start to a very twisted disturbing story- but it's actually a BEAUTIFUL story of selfless love. Joanna was a SURROGATE for her brother and his wife, after many heartbreaks with infertility. Hearing it from her perspective made for a really beautiful and sweet episode- so tune in now to hear all the details!
Erin has been a friend of mine thanks to Periscope for nearly three years now. I have adored her since her first live stream and have thankfully kept up with her this entire time on social media. She is a wealth of knowledge as a nurse and a mother. And girls- she can bake a MEAN batch of cookies! I'm posting the recipe below cuz it's like kind of a big deal.
Erin enriches the internet space by sharing so much knowledge to women trying to navigate life with their bodies, motherhood, birth and everything in between. She is a loving advocate for natural birth but is supportive of women however they choose to bring their children into the world. If you follow her in any capacity I can guarantee your confidence level in life will increase because knowledge is SO much power!
Erin also shares her near drowning experience and what it taught her about life and what ran through her mind when she thought she might be in her last moments.
These two ladies are SO impressive and have turned their own personal struggles as women and mothers into a community that serves THOUSANDS of women!
I love a good pay it forward story as much as the next person, but when people stumble upon something simply by caring to help others- it gives me chills. These two sisters embarked on a diet challenge of sorts when each of them were experiencing their own set of struggles. They sacrificed to do it together and it ended up bringing them closer than ever. Listen in to hear them chat about their story and the birth of their movement- Strong Fit Mamas!
Homemaker. Do you love that word or do you hate it a little? Most of us Marvelous Moms feel the pressure of keeping a home in order at least sometimes, right? For a lot of us, it's our "job."
Kendra Hennessy is the owner of "Mother Like a Boss" and she is on the podcast today to tell us that we don't have to let this word define us! Also, we don't have to dread cleaning our houses and everything else that comes with the word "homemaker."
This episode definitely changed my perspective on homemaking and I am excited to share it with you.
Hey Marvelous Moms!
I know every single episode is inspiring in one way or another, but wow, this one gave me the chills! Amy Twitty is our guest today and she tells us about her fighting efforts to adopt her children. I loved listening to her amazing stories and I know you will too.
Do you ever wish you were better at planning? I know I struggle to prioritize my time and stay organized, sometimes despite my best efforts. Tonya Dalton is our guest this week, and she has a business centered around productivity tools and training.
Listen to our chat, and check out her website. Happy planning!
Today's guest has chosen to remain anonymous for her own privacy. Her subject is a sensitive one but it needed to be talked about on the podcast because unfortunately, infidelity does happen sometimes. Many victims choose to leave and some, like today's guest, choose to stay.
We often think we know what we would do in a certain situation, until it actually happens to us. I hope her story can help you if you are in a similar situation, or if you know someone who's gone through it! We could all use and give a little more forgiveness, don't you think?
Thanks for listening!

If you like positive people (don't we all?) you'll like Dena! Like Aubrey from last week's episode, Dena suffered the loss of a child when she delivered a still born baby. She's also recently lost several other close family members, so she is no stranger to loss.
I've never been through these kinds of experiences, but I know many people have, so I hope you can find the strength to be positive through your own trials, whatever they may be!
Aubrey is one of my longest and best friends since high school! She's amazing in every way and has been through one of the hardest trials a mother could ever be put through: losing a baby.
Whether you have been through the same thing (if so, sending so many hugs!) or you know someone who has, we hope this episode can give some much needed comfort.
