Hi, mamas! I'm Annie
I see you there, mama! I know you want to be the best mom you can be for your kids. But you also long to feel whole again yourself. The good news is you CAN do both… and you don’t have to do it alone!
We’re better together
As a little girl, I wanted to wear a pretty white dress, walk down a church aisle, and pledge my undying love to my prince charming. But after pledging my undying love to my prince charming, my fairy-tale was shattered when I became a single mom with two beautiful daughters by my side.
I thought my life was over, and it was… my old life.
As I watched the fallout of divorce take its effect on my own daughters, I decided that enough was enough.
So I surrounded myself with other solo moms that were going in my direction, putting their kids first.
The support from that like-minded community, that circle of women who knew first hand what life was like as a solo mom, was key in helping me raise confident, well-adjusted kids.
You’re More than Half of a Whole
You long to feel good about yourself again. And you’re tired of staying up at night wondering if you have scarred your kids for life!
I know this because I’ve been you.
I had no confidence.
It seemed the message I got from the world was that I was half of a whole now that I was a solo mom. That I wasn’t enough.
This just added to how I already felt about myself.
I remember feeling like everyone else had it together except for me...
Spoiler alert; no one has it together. We are all a work in progress.
The truth is you already have what you need inside of you to be a strong, confident mama.
And even when you feel you are failing horribly, you’re doing better than what you were giving yourself credit for!
Let me say it again: if you’re a solo mom, you’re a strong woman. You’re a mother and father most days. You’re often a sole provider. You show endless amounts of love, day in and day out.
But just because you’re strong doesn’t mean you have to be lonely!
I mentor solo moms because I believe parenting alone doesn’t have to be a lonely place.
I know it’s easy to think that just because you’re a solo mom that you have to do it all by yourself. It’s easy to want to power through and exhaust yourself to the point of being frazzled and overwhelmed all the time.
It’s easy to think this is how your life has to be.
But the good news is you don’t have to do this alone!
I remember the day I knew I needed to help moms like you.
I was sitting in the car with my grown daughter, a middle school teacher who loves her kids like they are her own.
She was telling me about a meeting she had with a parent and the school administration, to let the parent know her 7th grade boy was being expelled from the school.
My daughter’s heart was heavy as she was telling me about it. She cared deeply for this boy.
He was a good boy, but had issues that were beyond what her school could deal with.
He was going to have to go to a large public school where she worried he would get lost in the crowd, and then she said this…
“The mom is a single mom and she’s not like you.”
That was it!
I knew I had to do something to support and inspire solo moms.
To share what I have learned from my experience.
This is why I want to help you thrive, not just survive, as a solo mom.
I’m here to support you and hold your hand through whatever you’re going through.
You’re not alone.
So no matter where you are today in your solo mom journey, it’s not too late.
You are right where you’re supposed to be to take the next step to living wholeheartedly!
