As an overwhelmed new mom, Rachel Nielson finally acknowledged that she had an eating disorder. She had been coping with stress and heartache through both undereating and overeating for almost ten years, and her negative thoughts about herself had become all-consuming. Rachel learned about a mindset called "intuitive eating" which taught her how to trust, respect, and listen to her body.  For full show notes, please go to powerofmoms.com/147

So it weighs on your heart--while you're cleaning the kitchen, working through your to-do list, and trying to keep a smile on your face so your children won't have to share in your stress.

We know. We've been there. Some days we are there.

This is a podcast that was recorded specifically to help heal your heart.

I (April) used to go to my mother with all these challenges. She was the best at keeping secrets, and I could "let it all out" without ever feeling judged or criticized.

Many of you know that my mom is now in the last stages of Alzheimer's, and so I don't have that same outlet anymore. But do you know what I do have? Years of hearing her voice. Years of learning what she would have said. And now I want to share it with you.

Do you have friends who might be going through challenges that no one can see? Please share this with them. Together, we're the power of moms.

Access three free chapters of April's new book, Your Children Want YOU!, by clicking here.

When we think about our kids, their time online, and their experiences in the world, the LAST thing we want to think about is predators. But when you look at the stats, it's shocking to see just how easy it can be for children (and adults) to be hurt, bullied, or abused. So--without panicking or freaking out--we're going to take a half hour to hear some incredible advice from former NCIS Special Agent Heather Ryan, who is also a deliberate mother!  This is a really important episode of Power of Moms Radio that we would love for you to share, as it just may save a life.  For full show notes, please visit powerofmoms.com/143
