Welcome to a special Mother’s Day episode of the Marvelous Moms Club! You may have already noticed, we have gotten a little bit of a facelift- with a new logo and some new content! What has REALLY changed here is the purpose and mission of this community- and that includes you. On this day dedicated to mother’s- I wanted to take some time to tell you how much I appreciate you for being here- and to give you some sneak peek insight into what is ahead. I share the new Marvelous Moms Club mission statement and how my own perspective has changed since starting this “club” 3 1/2 years ago! Tune in to listen!
Hello and Happy Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful moms who are listening to this special Mother’s Day episode. It’s just me today, it’s just me, Kirsten and I wanted to share from my heart, to you, just my love for you and my gratitude for you being a part of this space. We have literally thousands of people who subscribe to and download this podcast which I do not take lightly and I just wanted to take today, to really celebrate what we have created and what and kind of give you a little glimpse into what lies ahead, because I’m excited for it and I really hope that this will be a space where, if you’ve already found some solitude here, if you’ve already found inspiration and all you’ll continue to do so even more because we are bringing in so many amazing changes and this is really gonna change from a podcast to a community and a movement. In many ways that already has been in the past.
I remember starting this podcast three-and-a-half years ago, and having no idea actually at the time, who I should be talking to, I had all these things that I wanted to share, had all this information and all this inspiration and just things that were starting to come together in my mind that I wanted to share with people because I’ve told people before, I have this bandwagon syndrome or when I discover something is really amazing, I expect everybody to just jump in and do it with me. My family can attest to this, that it can get borderline annoying sometimes when I’ve discovered a food that’s unhealthy or an exercise that’s really good for you, and I want everybody to jump on board.
The same thing happened when I started the marvelous Mom’s Club podcast. I wasn’t sure who my audience should be, but when I really sat and thought about it and I asked some people around me who should I be talking to, what are my talents, or are my skills? A lot of it came back to motherhood, and I thought well, obviously it’s something that I do, it’s just one of my titles of course I could talk to other moms. Impostor Syndrome said in so quickly because I think we can all agree at any given time. You can find another mom who’s doing a little bit better than you are, right?
She sees her kids organic food, she’s home schooling she’s never losing her temper, she has the perfect system for chores and paying her kids allowance and all these little things that we think make that person a better mother than we are. And I do believe that we are all at different levels of growth in our awareness of who we are and how we’re raising our children.
But for me, I thought there’s absolutely no way I can sit and do an entire podcast. It can’t be a parenting podcast it’s not an advice podcast or I’m like, “Well this is what you should do when your kid acts up. Or, “This is how you should sleep train your baby.
I didn’t have all of those tools. And as one mother, I didn’t have the entire playbook on how to be a marvelous Mom, I just was a mom, and I was striving every day to become a better mom and that’s really all I had, and so that’s why I immediately instead of this being just me all the time and it shifted into an interview-based podcast, because I thought… “How cool would it be if we can share stories for mothers all over the world, we’re doing things a little bit differently, who have mastered certain things in parenting, who have mastered certain things in personal development in their business and all these different areas of life, we can bring them all into one space.” That’s what we’ve done over the last three and a half years is bringing together nearly 200 episodes of the podcast, and I don’t know, 150-175, I’m not even sure the exact number, women to share their stories and share their light. As I was going through, I prepared my top 10 favorite podcast episodes. And so to do that, I wanted to make sure that I scrolled through and I thought, about each and every episode which is really tricky because I started out with a list much longer than 10 and what I had to do is really think about how each of those top 10 episodes, impacted me or impacted this community as a whole, and which ones really stood out for me and helped me to grow to the next level. But in the meantime, in the process of sifting through those, I was amazed at what the variety is and how many backgrounds and stories we’ve brought into this podcast so to see how that’s grown and how that’s really become this has become such a place of power and to go back and reflect on each episode, and really what that meant for me where I was at in my business growth in my personal growth when I brought in each and every guest, has been so mind-boggling and to think that we’ve only just begun, we only just pick on… It’s crazy because you guys…
I have big plans for this community of big plans for you and I just wanted to take a few minutes to share with you how incredible it can be to align yourself with a bigger picture with a bigger purpose. And I wanted to let you guys know, we created a new mission statement, which is kind of crazy that we never really had one before.
If you look back and you think back to the old intro, it was break out of median. Become the mom. You’ve always wanted to be. And I loved that at the time when I created it, but then I also feel like I grew out of it are grew out of it in a way, and I started to think, “Is that offensive? I don’t want everybody to think that they’re all mediocre. But to me, it was a reflection of how I had felt that I have lived my life being content with mediocrity all these years, and now I’m seeing this vast potential that I have to create, to lead, to inspire, to build my family up to build a different kind of future to not settle for the way things have always been, and to wanna create something that never has been for me, right, I see people who are able to build and create these amazing things, and I wanna do that for myself. And so it’s been a process and a journey and that happening this podcast, this community is also become a process and a journey and what I think it’s really done and I’ll probably do a whole episode devoted to this is change these concepts from a theoretical point to a realistic one. I’ve gone from the theory of your dreams can come true if you work hard enough to… Oh my gosh, it actually does work and it’s like Yeah, you guys are like… Yeah, we know it’s tale is all this time, it’s literally something we’ve heard our whole lives but I think it’s so much easier to believe in the theory and to believe in the idea than it is to acknowledge the work that it’s gonna take to get there, and that it actually will happen when you put the time in.
And so I wanted to come to you kind of almost as though I’m on the other side of a really large base valley. I actually wrote a blog post about this so we’ll probably be included here in the showers for this episode, and the whole mission statement. Of the podcast and the marvelous moms club has changed because I’ve gotten to the other side of a valley that I could only see the other side from a super far distance and I had to quit to see, the thing that I was going for, right, and every step towards that was a leap of faith because I was not even quite sure what was gonna happen on the other side. I just knew that it was good, I had a feeling it was good, I was feeling pulled there, I was feeling compelled to do this thing to move forward one step at a time, and now I’m there and it’s good and it’s sweeter than I ever thought possible, and it’s all come in to focus and the clarity is there. And I realized that what I started building three and a half years ago, is supposed to turn into something even more grandiose and beautiful than I ever could have comprehended from the other side of that valley.
And I’m looking back across it and I’m seeing all these women, I come in contact all the time with women, who are like… How have you done this or What do you recommend if I’m getting started or I feel this pull to do something and I’m not sure, what it is, I don’t even know where to begin, I’m not even sure what I’m good at, or what I’m supposed to put out there.
And what’s very amazing about this community is that this is gonna be a space where we’re gonna help you uncover what that is, whether that’s a business that you wanna launch, whether that’s a talent or a skill that you have been yearning to develop and you’ve never given yourself the permission or the time, we’re helping you to create some, I don’t know, just some clarity in your own life where being a mother is still going to be your greatest role, but being a marvelous mom is going to entail, you following all your dreams opening up your mind to endless possibility, and accepting the fact that you don’t have to choose whether to be a good mom, or whether to be happy in your own endeavors.
I found a way to make it work.
And I have a family that thrives in spite of the fact or probably because of the fact that I have followed my big scary dreams.
And so, the mission statement as you guys can see, in the show out has become something really powerful. And I wanna read that to you just so you guys can hear it from my mouth because I wrote this… And the amazing thing is it flowed out of me and so smoothly because It is from the heart and is something I truly believe at the core of my being, is the reason that I started it even though my vision was short-sighted at the time I was like, I-m-M-to start a podcast. ’cause podcasts are cool and moms can listen to them while they’re working and driving carpool and everything. It’s turned into such a bigger project or I’m like… My gosh, look at the lives that have been impacted. Some of these episodes have been downloaded over 100-000 times and to think that that many people have listened, and re-listened to these stories and then it’s given them perspective. And power in their lives, and to see how some of these episodes have led to total life changes. It kind of boggles the mind, and it’s a lot of pressure, but it’s a pressure that I take on so happily, and that’s why going forward, I’m gonna read the mission statement here in just a minute, but I just wanted to give you guys a little sneak peak going forward. I’ve taken some of my favorite people just guess who’ve been on the show, and people who I’ve encountered in the last few years who I just admire and I literally feel drawn to them and I feel like they’re supposed to be a part of this community, they’re supposed to be part of this movement as more of like a contributor standpoint. And so we’ve brought on about 15 incredible women, all different stages of motherhood we’re gonna be sharing their hearts and inspiration with you guys who are still various different things.
And so, if you wanna head over to the marvelous moms club podcast or Marvel son’s coped website, I’m sorry you will see that we have been rolling out and will continue to roll out so much amazing content whether you went to home school, whether you are a traveling family and you want some tips and tricks or you wanna become a traveling family, or if you’re looking for some health benefits you’re looking for a way to change your health if you’re looking.
So the sky is the limit. relationship advice and organization. There’s literally something for everybody in the marvelous Mom’s Club. And I have created a space where we have created a space where no matter what you’re coming in for, you’re gonna walk out with 10 times more than what you came in for.
Kind of like the best sale ever but it’s all free, and it’s all yours for the taking. Okay, so the marvelous Mom’s Club mission, the marvelous Mom’s Club is a community where you’ll be not only allowed, but encouraged to dream big dreams imagine the very best future for yourself and your family, and do so without perfection, or criticism.
We believe in creating a space online and offline of inclusion, connection and love we’re throwing away expectations from ourselves, from society and from all the influences that can hold back the raw authenticity, and God given gifts that make us truly marvelous… We are, lifting up our children and the women within the reach of our influence to be thought leaders brave souls and vibrant individuals with power to enhance the lives of everyone around them through honest reflection purposeful action and crazy amounts of ambition in love, we are embracing the gift and glory of motherhood by showing every woman in the human race that she is marvelous. Beyond measure.
I tweaked a few things there, and it turned in to be the most amazing, amazing manifest over the marvelous mom’s club and I hope that that resonates with you. I hope if you are the Inga this is something that you will share, it’s posted to our Instagram if you’ll go follow on the Instagram account at marvelous Mom’s Club and tag a fellow mom in this special Mother’s Day.
Or share this in your story, so that other moms can see it and decide for themselves that this is a tribe, but they wanna be a part of… It’s literally no woman left behind. That’s my goal, and I truly believe that in building up the mother and building up the amazing woman that is the heart and soul of every home whether she has a work from home, a stay-at-home mom of leave to go to work from a single mom, an adoptive mom, a foster mom, whatever title of mother that she takes on or even maybe a grieving mom or a soon-to-be mom or a wishful Mom that all of them deserve to feel included and I believe that if we can build her up if we can build up the women around us if we can take away. And I know it’s a lofty goal, and I know so many people are already talking about this, but I know this is what I’m supposed to do, and I know this is the area in the direction that we’re supposed to head with the podcast if everybody can feel lifted up, if we can stop comparing ourselves and we can look at what a beautiful painting comes together when we combine all of our colors and styles and perspectives and how incredible that can be at moving life forward, then that’s when we’re gonna create a truly marvelous. Society. And I do believe that it is not within, it’s not without our reach to change the world and I the place you change the world is in the home, and I think it starts with the mother and so this is a place of solace, this is a place where you will come and He will feel immediately validated in your desires to create for your family to lead your family and also to have those big, scary dreams of your own that are only in turn going to bless your family actually heard listening to a book, a homeschool book, that… And I put things in perspective you spend like 20 plus years, 25 years, maybe of your life, if you have more than one child raising your children, which is like a third of your life and when you think of it that way, letting a third of your life passed by doing absolutely nothing for yourself is going to hinder your ability to do things after that. Third of your life is over when it’s time for you to just do stuff for yourself.
How much further ahead, will you be in those goals in those ambitions if you were building along the way.
So whatever that looks like, whether it’s a talent, whether it’s a business that’s what we’re here to help you to create without shame, without judgment without criticism and so please share this with your fellow mamas and know that, from the bottom of my heart, I take this in this role and responsibility to create this community, so seriously in the most beautiful and happy and fun way possible. ’cause everything has to be fun when I’m doing it, but I’m so grateful that God has inspired me to create something like this, and I can tell you that I’m not as a live doing anything as I am, when I do the marvelous Mom’s Club.
Did that make sense? This is the thing that liked me on fire. This is the thing that resonates with me the most. And there have been times, I’ll b-honest. I thought it was time to put this like to bet I thought it was time to just set the marvelous mom’s called side and move on to other things, but there’s always been a nagging thing that it has never even begun to scratch the surface about it, what it’s capable of.
