Moms Change the World
While Changing Diapers
This blog is about more than just calling attention to what isn't working. It questions and explores our relationships with our ourselves, children, family, and the world. It's about the pursuit of happiness and our reasons for being.
Hello Future Moms
Paperback and Ebook
The Joy and Love of Childhood is more than just a parenting book. It is a guide for future moms just out of college and current moms who want to be truly present in their child’s life. It explores the power of the minds and spirits of children, and offers strategies for fostering kindness, compassion, confidence and empathy. Drawing on a deep understanding of the struggles and joys of motherhood, as well as research in child development and psychology, the book offers practical insights on how moms can have a dramatic impact on their child’s lifetime wellbeing, while also addressing the financial challenges that come with being a stay-at-home mom.
It's a comprehensive guide for anyone looking to go beyond the basics of diapers, to holistically raise a child with love, understanding and purpose.
At work, you are expendable. At home with your child, you are irreplaceable.
The book identifies and analyzes the hurdles women face as they seek to go beyond the status quo and focus on the hearts and minds of their children to create the foundations for happy, fulfilling lives.
As the mother of a young child, I asked myself, what if moms got together and raised our children to create the world we wish for them, instead of molding them to perpetuate the world we’ve got?
When we care for the health, heart and minds of our children, we show reverence for the future of the Earth and humanity.
Why I wrote this book: the backstory
One morning, before leaving for another 10 hour work day, the nanny came in and my 1 year old daughter lit up, stretched out her arms to the nanny and said, “Mama!”
The stabbing sensation in my chest was what it feels like to hire a stranger to come into my home to take care of my child,
and find out that they are no longer the stranger, I was. If I could bottle that heartbreaking feeling and share it with all future mothers, the world would change overnight.
I began journaling and sorting through all the things I found out the hard way because nobody ever told me, and ways I could have avoided that moment with the nanny. I started writing a book for my daughter to read when she is older, so she would know everything that I didn’t. I wanted her to be 100 steps ahead by the time she reached motherhood, so she could create her happiest life possible.
I decided to publish the book after I realized what a happier world our children would grow up living in, if other moms out there did the same.
When you raise a child, you change the world.

“We can easily forgive a child
who is afraid of the dark;
the real tragedy of life is when
men are afraid of the light.”
