I met Vanessa at a blogger conference where she shared not only her story of how she and her husband created Chatbooks, but her love for music and her incredible singing talent! As a mother of seven she inspired me and I knew I had to share her story with the rest of you. She’s the example of following your dream to be an amazing mother, while also being true to your heart and pursuing the other talents and passions you were blessed with. It can be so easy to get stuck in the rut of motherhood or to feel like you are betraying your family by having other hobbies or joys, but what most of us who follow that calling find, it can actually make us better mothers! It’s all about feeling fulfilled and finding a type of balance that fits who you are as an individual and as a mother into one fantastic life. And Vanessa never pretends to have it all together or to have mastered it perfectly. She has given up some of her endeavors to pursue others. But she is an example of listening to that inner voice that tells you it’s ok to love more than one thing.
Enjoy today’s episode, it’s really just a chat between moms, about being a mom and all the highs and lows that come with every phase of motherhood! Enjoy! And thank you Vanessa for treating us to a sneak peek into your life!
