Welcome! The Mommy Mentors are delighted that you’ve found us!
My Mommy Mentor began when Mommy Mentor CurlyQ thought she should start writing down the things she learned while parenting her 4 kids because she kept forgetting everything she learned in between children! She thought, ‘We shouldn’t reinvent the wheel with the birth of every child in the world, should we?!’
CurlyQ also wanted to share ways that she and her husband have strengthened their marriage over this time, realizing many marriages weaken and break with the stress of parenting or simply the passage of time if the marriages aren’t deliberately tended to.
And since CurlyQ has the great benefit of being surrounded by other women whose parenting and marriages she really admired, she invited them to become Mommy Mentors, too. The Mommy Mentors have different parenting styles, opinions about childbirth and breastfeeding, making time for our husbands, cooking meals for our families, and education, but they are here to share with you their experiences and simply let you figure out what works best for you and your families. The Mommy Mentors may even disagree with one another! But it doesn’t matter. You can take whatever tips and guidance you like and leave the rest. This isn’t a place to determine what is right or wrong, but what simply has worked best for the Mommy Mentors and their families.
Please know this, too. The Mommy Mentors write these articles in all humility. None of us has is all figured out, not even close! We’re not Mommy experts, we’re just Mommy’s with experience. And among all the Mommy Mentors, we can offer helpful tips or guidance on most subjects. But no one of us can do that alone. That’s why this is a collaborative effort. This should be a place of reassurance and guidance, not a place for you to leave feeling inadequate.
The Mommy Mentors realize that families come in all sorts of forms for many reasons. The Mommy Mentors are here to support women as wives and mothers who are devoted to the wellness of their families. We place great importance on cultivating happy marriages and raising the children that God has entrusted to us!
Please browse the Marriage and Parenting pages to see what our Mentor Moms can offer you. Balancing all that is required of this noble profession can be overwhelming and difficult, ladies. So here we go…together!
