Mentoring Mothers Through the Art of Intentional Parenting


Hey, I’m Kate, and this is my wild crew. Many years ago, when I was a young lass, I imagined I would build a high-powered and successful career in a big city. I never really thought about marriage and definitely not about raising a family. Seems like an odd admission for a mothering website, doesn’t it? Here’s the deal: meeting my husband, Kirk, while life-guarding at Disney World was part of my story; I just didn’t know it yet. Ditto becoming a mother for the first time at age 26.

Although I never imagined becoming a mother, I now cannot imagine my life any other way! Have you ever had an experience like that in your life? So why am I here podcasting and writing about motherhood? I’m here to help you find your passion and joy in motherhood while also hanging onto what makes you YOU. I know what it’s like to feel underwater in motherhood, and I’ve had my fair share of days that ended in tears and a carton of ice cream. Over the past several years, I’ve found my way again in the balance of motherhood and simply being me. I’ve found ways to create a story for my life and family that feels AH-mazing, and I cannot wait to share with you how to do the same.

You’ve got this one shot at motherhood and your life. No pressure, right? It shouldn’t feel hard because you already have all the tools inside of you that you need to rock this journey. Consider me your sidekick. I’m here to help you love your life, find your passions as a mama AND an individual (because YOU did not disappear the day your first kiddo was born), and thrive in the story you were meant to live. We all deserve to live our days with our souls singing with joy and our hearts full.

Welcome to your Streamlined Motherhood!
