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.

Sarah Griggs is a mother of three who loves her family and is simply trying to live her best life. Little did she know that (as a birthday gift) her husband was re-purposing the photos and inspirational quotes Sarah had been posting to her personal Instagram account--and building her an entire community on Facebook.

At the time of this podcast, more than 75,000 people have joined Sarah on her journey--giving her an opportunity to be a leader every day.

What does this mean for each of us as deliberate mothers? Join April Perry and Sarah Griggs as they discuss principles of leadership that can apply to every mom. Whether the number of people who "officially" look to us is big or small, our influence always reaches farther than we think.

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
