Invite your mom friends, grab your favorite beverage and get ready to definitely laugh, maybe cry, and have some “ah ha” moments. Mom, author and blogger Rachel Martin, the face behind Finding Joy, will be joining us for a raw virtual talk on the hard truths of parenthood, and why being “mom” is enough. Based off the success of the almost one million Facebook likes viral post with the same title in this talk we get to the nitty gritty emotions that we deal with as mothers. Through narrative, personal stories, powerful analogies & inspiration we’ll celebrate motherhood through fresh eyes. We live in a digital age of expectations, to-do lists, and a mythical ladder of success. In this talk I work to clear that clutter and to replace it with the beautiful truth that the ordinary days and ordinary things in motherhood are truly extraordinary.
