Wholehearted Parenting – THE JOURNEY OF MOTHERHOOD…ONE MOM’S STORY

I love talking to Moms…hearing their stories… their wishes…their dreams.
Motherhood is a beautiful journey. A journey filled with joy, love and precious moments. It’s also a journey filled with ups and downs, and detours along the way.

I’m in the process of writing a book, “If I Knew Then…Mothers’ Journey in Discovering What Really Matters”. My inspiration for this book has come not only from my own journey as a Mom, but other mothers as well. I believe we understand more about our mothering journey when we’re able to slow down and reflect. When we’re able to look at our journey retrospectively, we’re able to look back and see the bigger picture. When we’re not caught up in the frenzied moment, the busyness of life, we’re able to shift our lens, and and begin to notice what really matters.

This helps to give us perspective…maybe the things that we thought were so important in the moment, perhaps the ideas that we held firmly in our mind, were willing to fight for…seemed a bit less important after awhile.

Today I’ve invited my guest Angie Mizzell to join my conversation. Angie is a Mom traveling the journey of motherhood. She is also the writer and Director/Producer of “Listen To Your Mother: Charleston”. Angie believes that everyone has a story, and in addition to telling her own, through her blog and memoir that she’s currently writing, she is passionate about helping others tell theirs. Angie has been writing a personal lifestyle blog since 2008. In her earlier career, she was a television journalist. Angie lives in Charleston, SC with her husband and 3 children.

I hope you’ll slow down, take a moment and join us…
