Though I couldn't have planned it like this, today's podcast interview turns out to be especially timely. I'm sure you would agree: This world is feeling very uncertain right now. The Coronavirus is continuing to spread, causing schools and business to close down, travel and other events to be cancelled, our economy to tank, and a whole lot of anxiety for people on a whole lot of levels.

If you're a mom who is ready to find more balance and explore ways to tap into your creative, passionate side, today's Boy Mom Podcast episode is for you. Tying into my current "What Moms Need Most" blog series, this episode is all about helping moms find what "fuels your soul".

This is part 5 of the "What Moms Need Most" series. Read the Introduction to find out more about the series and to grab links to all of the posts so far!

A special podcast and a timely announcement! Today's podcast episode is a little different...It may not be specifically about raising boys, but I think it is a topic which is relevant to just about every mom I know! :) This is a big part of my personal journey, and something I am super passionate about!

Moms Need Friends is Part II of the "What a Mom Needs Most Series." (Read the introduction and find links to all of the posts in HERE.) ** This post is a bit lengthy because I tried to touch on *somanythings* about moms and friendship.
