Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
A show for moms who are committed to making an impact in the world. This is our story of personal journeys through hardship and challenges and how we take those to make the world better. We support mothers. We talk about current events, stories of interest, and the hard stuff that make us "real". We are moms determined to make the world a better place - a place where moms support each other and judge LESS. We hope to open up dialogue, make you think about topics in a new way, introduce you to people you might never connect with, and show your children how to be future leaders.
