I (April) have had some personal struggles over the past several months and years--particularly as I tried to do do more than one day's share each day, and as I tried to combat a really mean voice in my head that was waking me up each morning. I've finally found the solutions to these two challenges, and whether or not you struggle with the same kinds of things, I thought that perhaps my experiences could be helpful to you. Enjoy today's episode, and please share your thoughts and comments below!

Jill Savage is an amazing woman. But not just because she speaks, writes, shares goodness and leads thousands of people around the world. It’s because she’s real. And she knows how to look at motherhood with a solid, beautiful perspective that can’t help but inspire you.
In today’s episode of Power of Moms Radio, we discuss some great topics that can help you better care for your family including
How to catch ourselves before we go down "the rabbit hole” of frustration and comparison.
- How to transform the challenges of marriage and use them as growing opportunities.
- How to recognize when we’re unfairly comparing our children—to each other, to kids we know, or to those “imaginary perfect kids” that we’re sure exist somewhere out there.
- How to use the “CLAP” acronym to help us respond to a child who is perhaps driving us crazy.  :)
- How to fill our wells and take care of ourselves—because all this work we’re doing to emotionally support our families require energy that must be replenished.
