One of my favorite writers is Glennon Doyle Melton with Momastery and Together Rising. She started her career as an author by blogging about her experiences raising her three kids. She needed an outlet to help her feel less alone and isolated as a stay-at-home mom. Her ability to capture the excruciating, yet brutiful (her word), journey of parenthood has made me cry on so many occasions. Her nonprofit, Together Rising, has raised millions of dollars to help children and families all over the world. She is a true inspiration. Her motto, “We can do hard things” is my mantra.
The other blogger that I really like is Ilana Wiles with Mommyshorts. I love her candid approach to parenting. She also runs the Instagram accounts @averageparentproblems and @insta2yearold. She really captures the joy and challenges of parenthood with her two daughters and she highlights other parents in a way that we can all relate. Ilana also travels a lot with her children which resonates with me because we try to do the same with our kids. I really appreciate that she’s honest about the fun and the not-so-fun parts of traveling with toddlers.
