There is no doubt: Mommy anger was my biggest struggle in my early years of parenting. Like a lot of women, I didn’t know I had an anger problem until I became a mom. 😉 My anger made me feel ashamed and alone. Though I overcame this pattern of parenting, I will always regret the times it hurt my relationship with my kids.
After years of writing and getting to know moms all over the world, I realize that this is a common issue…even if it is one that is hard it is to talk about. With that in mind, I am so glad to share this week’s interview with Natalie Hixson. Natalie shares openly about her journey to overcome destructive mommy anger, and how that led her to her current work coaching other women who are stuck in destructive anger patterns. I think you’ll get a lot of practical encouragement from what she shares in this episode!

More about Natalie Hixson…
Natalie is a wife, mother, auntie, and certified professional life coach who helps discouraged Christian moms overcome destructive anger and burnout. After learning to thrive in motherhood and process anger in a healthy way, Natalie became convicted to help other moms avoid those dark years of motherhood by helping them to appreciate and process their anger, learn to identify their triggers, and ultimately control their reaction to those triggering situations. She enjoys her own motherhood journey by hanging with her husband Mike and their three daughters in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. She recharges with Jesus, coffee, and adventures with her family like skiing in the winter, hiking in the summer!
