Finding a New Identity in Motherhood

Motherhood has not come naturally to me. This gig is HARD and truthfully I'm not really the "mothering-type". You longtime readers know this by now. I've posted about it here and here and oh yeah, here too. This thing is just out of my wheel house and I am learning every single day how to lean in to this calling instead of running away.

One of the best things I've done to help myself since becoming a mom was joining a Birds on a Wire group. If you're not familiar with Karen Stubbs, I encourage you to check out her web site and her group studies, they are an amazing resource whether you're a new mom or a seasoned mother.

I had the privilege to speak and share a bit about my struggle with motherhood at a Birds on a Wire dinner a few months ago and I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch this video. (Please enjoy my crazy eyes in the still frame even if you can't watch...)

If you're looking for a ministry to support and/or need a place to donate prior to the end of the year, Birds on a Wire is changing lives and having a truly generational impact - just ask my kids.


  1. I know that it is just through Facebook and this blog that we are still connected, Katie, but I am so thankful that you are still a part of my life, even just this tiny amount. Your honesty and openness remind me that what I do is worth while and how I feel is normal and okay. Thank you, thank you for sharing your journey.

    1. Thank you for the kind words Anne Marie - I am so grateful we can stay connected online even though we live so far apart now. What we do is absolutely worth while. ;)
