When you think of your health, relational wellness is probably not the first thing that comes to mind.
However, the health of your most important relationships can significantly impact your overall well-being as a mom. I cover 3 main areas of relationships here: marriage, motherhood, and friendship. If one of these areas is not healthy, then it’s highly unlikely that you will be experiencing wellness and balance yourself.
My husband and I have been married 13 years. We are by no means experts at all – in fact, many times we are challenged by our own failures and selfishness in our marriage. However, we feel passionate about helping other marriages succeed. We are determined to make ours work, and we love supporting other couples do the same.
So part of my goal with writing is to share things we have learned that may help others. There are, of course, numerous resources for marriage out there – online, in books, conferences, etc. But each person has to find what works for them, and sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. Here’s some of my favorite Marriage Resources. And you can check out these posts on marriage:

When I became a mom, I thought I was somewhat prepared. I had several years of experience in social work, working with children. I had read LOTS of books, talked to lots of other moms, and received plenty advice.
Yet nothing really could have prepared me for the adventure of motherhood. It’s been a joy and a challenge in ways that I never would have imagined.
I do not consider myself an expert at all – in fact, the longer I am a mom, the more I realize that I really have no clue what I’m doing most of the time! But what I do know, and feel passionate about, is helping moms take care of themselves! I want moms to feel that, even if we don’t do this thing perfectly, we CAN do this thing.
My goal here is to share inspiration and encouragement to you as a mom, so that you feel more equipped to love and lead your family. Below you’ll see some of my top posts about motherhood:

While I believe that your relationship with your spouse & kids is the foundation of relational wellness, there’s also something to be said for strong friendships. As a mom, a big part of my support through this journey has come from my friends.
Developing relationships with other women who you can journey through life with is a key part of life. I am so grateful for the friendships I have, but it doesn’t just happen. Friendship requires effort and risk.
Here’s a few posts about friendship:
As moms, improving our relational wellness can have a huge impact on how we feel and our overall well-being.
