Finding JOY in Motherhood Introduction

Hi Mama’s! Let’s face it. Motherhood during the younger years is messy, exhausting, with a big love-hate relationship with concealer and dry shampoo. It can be hard find joy in motherhood on a difficult day. But even in the worst of days, motherhood is the best job in the world.
