Welcome back to part two of our fun and honest conversation with author Sarah Humphrey and artist Emily Little about motherhood. Here's what you can expect from today's episode:

  1. Navigating Doubts and Faith Crises: Picking up from where we left off, Sarah and Emily share personal experiences on how they navigate doubts and crises of faith, providing encouragement and practical advice for others in similar situations.
  2. Identity and Self-Care: In her book, '40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood', Sarah underlines the importance of reconnecting with the joys and freedom of our own childhood to fuel our capacity to love and give. We discuss what that looks like and how to practice it in a way that doesn’t foster resentment towards the divine role as Mom.
  3. Maintaining Your Identity in Motherhood: We explore the delicate balance of expressing individuality and fulfilling responsibilities as a mother. It's a journey of self-discovery without losing yourself (or your family) in the process.

Stay tuned for this insightful discussion that promises to bring understanding, encouragement, and practical advice to every mother out there. Don't forget to share and follow the show!
