Motherhood ain’t no joke.

Whether we’re exhausted, honored, annoyed, enraptured, uncertain, scared, joyful, full, empty, stressed, charged, proud, worried or a mix on any given day—never underestimate the power of moms coming together.

Because together, we can move mountains (including mountains of laundry). We can lift each other up. We can lose our minds. We can laugh. We can make promises.

We can find inspiration instead of comparison.

We have voices here.

Our Pledge
JOM is a place to celebrate all areas of motherhood and to champion for each other—never against—whether we’re winning or losing or haven’t showered or slept or forgot what the word s-e-x is even supposed to mean. This is a place where promises mean something, where our DNA is comprised of breast milk and deadlines and multitasking and leaning in and leaning out and sometimes just being left the hell alone.

Who We Are
Our moms do yoga (or at least think about the fact that we should probably want to do yoga), drink wine, love our kids, want to strangle our kids, have good days, bad days, aren’t afraid to get real, aren’t afraid to get dirty, aren’t afraid to look crazy, eat cookies, eat salad, take care of other people, think occasionally about taking care of ourselves, scream loud, scream often, laugh loud, loud often, cry ALL THE TIME or not at all, want more time and never get it and really love being a mom (mostly).

The Bottom Line
As big and complex as our world is, there are some truths that withstand time and place. There is nothing quite as universal and yet as personal and intimate as motherhood. No matter where our journeys take us, we all converge on the single most important crossroad: being a mom.

This is our sacred. The part of life that will never be comprised.

We are storytellers, you and I. So let’s dig into what’s real about motherhood. Let’s tell the truth: the good, the bad and the indescribable.

We are women. We are mothers. What a beautiful thing.

Welcome to Joy of Mom.
