A few years ago I had the pleasure of reading my essay “Momville” at Listen to Your Mother in Northwest Arkansas. It’s a humorous take on my motherhood journey, from infertility to empty nest.

I hope you enjoy!

We are halfway through the month of August, the time of year when many are experiencing significant changes with their children or grandchildren. Whether sending them off to college, the military, a job, or anticipating the next grade level at school, these transitions can be very challenging. I’ve been sharing advice on how to navigate this journey, as well as share my own personal experiences when my son went to college five years ago.
