Jess and Mami

It's hard to write about myself.

Where do I start? How much do I say? What do people want to read? What do I want to write?!

Well, I guess the best place to start is at the beginning, and the rest of the questions will answer themselves.

When Jess' dad and I first split up, the first thing I did was go back to church. I knew it was where I needed to be. And now, all this time later, I feel like everything we went through had a greater purpose. Through my growth, pain, and experiences, I've been privileged to be there for, and support, many other women. Honestly, if I had to go through everything all over again just to get here to this point, I really would.

I can be pretty private, but every so often I get that little nudge telling me to talk to someone, to reach out, to tell my story. And being obedient to that nudge never disappoints. I love that moment when a mom realizes she's not alone in her circumstance, or when a woman's shoulders relax in relief after finally having her breakthrough because something that I experienced helped someone else in their moment of need.

So what do I want to write? I want to write things that resonate. I want to write about what helps, what hurts, and whatever else God leads me to talk about. I want to write about breastfeeding and how amazing the human body is. I want to write about my passion to help babies by helping their moms. And if you're still following this post, that's what you want to read about as well.

I'm looking forward to interacting with you, learning and growing as mothers together, and the support we can offer each other as women.
