When a friend of mine told me that she wanted to introduce me to a friend and psychologist who specializes in postpartum support and personal growth, and she hosts a radio show titled “Motherhood Radio”, I loved her before we even met. Then, she invited me to be on her radio show, and we had a blast talking about relationships as a tool for growth.
As Dr. Christina Hibbert writes, “Personal growth can be challenging, and when you’re a mom, it might feel like there’s no time to left over for “choosing to grow.” Yet, the lens of motherhood provides unique opportunities for personal growth as well as relationship growth. In fact, it’s often through our relationships we grow the most. In this episode, Michelle Duncan Wilson, founder of Soul Work For Moms, and I are discussing the importance of our relationships—with ourselves, our children, our spouse/partner, friends, family, and community—in personal growth. We explore these relationships and how they are truly the perfect soil in which we can “plant ourselves and grow.” (from Dr. Hibbert’s best selling book, This is How we Grow) We’re also sharing specific strategies to help expand your perspective when it comes to personal growth and tools that will keep you “growing” through motherhood, now and always.”
If you get overwhelmed by the close relationships in your life, such as your spouse and children, you’ll enjoy this interview.
