There are so many words that make up the building blocks of motherhood. Love, faith, social isolation, fertility and infertility, spirituality, comparison traps, social media, play groups, self-care, etc. What words would you throw into it? Author Amy Seiffert lays it all out: the good, the bad, and the sometimes ugly messiness that is real motherhood. Truth bombs included.
She pulls you in with her honesty and down-to-earth insights, both in this interview, and in her book "Chin Up." We focus in on her own story and what lead to writing her book and exposing vulnerable parts of herself to the world. We also touch on the spiritual component of Holistic Health and why it is a missing piece for so many people, as well as how Amy's book might appeal to people who don't share her religious beliefs, but still find themselves on a journey of exploration through motherhood.
Amy is a grad of Bowling Green State University and has been married for 15 years and has three amazing kids. She has been working in the field of Christian ministry for many years, and loves athletics, creating things, and decorating.
Amy has been interviewed on CNN International for the One Dress Campaign to raise awareness for sex trafficking in Ohio and became a spokesperson for The Daughter Project in NW Ohio. She's been blogging for ten years on everyday life and spirituality.
