Welcome to our Amazing Moms Monday series! Motherhood comes in all shapes and sizes. Mothers come from varying different backgrounds, each with their own unique story.
Mom’s have one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world! Too often, we lose sight of what is most important and focus on what we feel are failures. So to change that narrative, we will be featuring an Amazing Mom every Monday to inspire us all to make a change!
The Mom Kind is proud to partner with the #WeLoveMoms movement to celebrate these amazing parent role models! These moms are making a difference in their communities and offer some real world inspiration.
“The Journey of a thousand miles, Begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

Through the inspiration of the Amazing Moms: Parents of the 21st century coffee table book (Mother’s Day 2018), we are so happy to feature these beautiful women who demonstrate motherhood in unique ways!
Without further ado, let’s check out this week’s featured Amazing Mom!

Favorite Moment as a Mom
There are so many so I will list one for each child: the day my daughter finished selling 3,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in just 7 days, the day my 7 year old sat in front of city council asking for them to keep her favorite park, the moment my daughter got rid of 4 bags of clothes in just 15 minutes after years of hoarding clothes she had out grown, realizing that she was only free to do this because I had confronted my hoarding by getting rid 10 bags of clothes I had been holding onto, and how she was expressing this unhealthy behavior for me, the day I gave birth to my son, who was over 11 pounds, at home at age 40 without any tearing! – Jennifer Griffin
