Become a confident mom with The Confident Mom herself
Where I’m based: Just outside Seattle
How long I’ve been blogging: I started The Confident Mom just over four years ago.

Your actions are critical to creating a peaceful, orderly home and fostering strong family relationships. From parenting principles, home management strategies, self-care ideas and real-life stories from yours truly; it’s all here and more!
My guilty pleasure: Chocolate-covered peanut clusters.
Last thing I bought: A bunch of fresh daffodils.
What’s your best advice for balancing the demands of motherhood? Give yourself a break — lower your expectations and celebrate the things you do accomplish. It is all not wrapped up pretty, it can be frustrating and you sometimes just need to go with the flow!
What’s the most rewarding part of your job? I can work from home, and I get to meet great moms from all over the world and support them in the most important job ever.
How do your children describe you? Fun, creative and silly — and my 3-year-old just said I was a chicken!
What is one small thing moms can do right now to become more confident? Have faith in your ability and realize that God gave you just what you need to be the best mom for your kids. You know them best and you can meet the needs that they have. Remember, Mom does know best!
