We moms worry and wonder if we are doing this parenting thing right by our children.  All we want to do is raise kind, responsible humans without the fear of messing them up too much.  I created this podcast so you don’t need to worry or ever feel alone on your motherhood journey–which I believe is the most important job in the world.

(And you might be surprised how much you’re actually doing right!)

I am Heather Anderson.  I am a mother, wife, educator, and certified life coach specializing in parenting, relationships, and education.  I am here to support and serve moms all over the world as they take on this grand endeavor of parenting their children with love and intention.

This is my passion.  This is why I show up for you every week.

Join me as I discuss parenting, relationships, household management, tips & tricks, your child’s education, and your own personal development.

I am excited to hear your thoughts and ideas so we can all learn from each other.  You can contact me on Instagram, Facebook, or at the end of each of my podcast pages here on my website.

If you’re ever in need of a free mommy coaching session (sign up on my homepage), I would love to talk.  I can’t wait to meet you and see what we can figure out for you and your family!

Let’s talk soon!
