Hi There, I’m Heather!
When people ask what do you do, I say, I Mom a lot. Sometimes I add that I’m also a writer, a Listen To Your Mother director and a contributor at Owning Pink and A Deeper Family. Before I was a mother, I worked in social work, providing services for people struggling with mental illness. These days I love that I stay at home with my boys and my girl and write from my office/den/guest room.
I’m forever grateful for the support and connection I’ve found in this space. I love it when the worldwide web is used for good.
My adventure includes one husband–Ryan, two boys, ages 8 and 6–Miles and Asher, and a 2 year old girl named Elsie Jane.
This blog and my life revolve around several themes, like my faith, motherhood, depression, addiction, our family’s journey with Asher’s hydrocephalus, and finding my way to a fully alive existence. Blogging reminded me that I love to write. And then it somehow moved me to write about all of life – the good, the bad, and all that is in the extraordinary in-between.
