Coming August 1st!!!


I am a mom.  But I am not content to just be a mom.  I want to be a better mom.  This is the heartbeat and passion behind my new site launching August 1st.  It is a place where all moms are welcome.  It is a place where all moms are challenged.  It is a place for you! After spending much time feeling frazzled, trying to learn to do everything the best I could by myself, God reminded me that all of us fall short and no one is perfect (not even us crazy multi-tasking moms)! But we can learn from one another and we can get better.

I started to learn everything I could from many different sites and moms.  This is where my idea was born.  What if there was just one site to address the many topics and issues that we face as moms?!  Moms of girls, moms of boys, homeschooling moms, working moms, moms who cook, moms who clean and organize, moms to be, new moms, struggling moms, and great moms all striving to be better moms together!  Praise God that we can learn from one another and spur one another on!  We pray that God will use thebettermom to inspire moms all over the world to not just be moms, but to be better moms.

Thank you for joining us.  Stay awhile, meet our lovely contributors, and introduce yourself.  We are so glad you are here.
