Hi there! I’m Brianna!
My name is Brianna and I’m a wife and stay at home mommy in the great New York City! I’m a school executive and counselor turned home CEO- aka a stay at home mom 🙂
I’m an everyday mama trying to help overwhelmed moms swap chaos for confidence!
I started Mastering Mom Life to help stay at home moms eliminate the stresses of motherhood by learning how to simply mom life, master homemaking and raise a thriving family!
I am by no means perfect and I am not a “master” of anything but I believe every mom deserves to stop surviving and start thriving in their daily life!
Why I started MML
As a new mom, I found motherhood to be overwhelming, stressful, and unpredictable. I battled a long labor, a painful recovery, a colicky baby, breastfeeding issues, and SO. MUCH. MORE.
I left my career to become a stay at home mom and I felt like motherhood hit me right over the head.
But then I found a system that worked for me. I started to push through the chaos and found ways to simplify mom life and created a life that I loved.
Motherhood wasn’t something that engulfed me anymore, but it enhanced me. I stopped surviving, and started thriving!
While at my lowest of lows, I hunted the internet for resources to help me but unfortunately, I couldn’t find much. So I wanted to make a difference and help moms who felt like me!
And now I share all of my tips and tricks to help overwhelmed moms find their OWN system to simplify mom life.
To help you create routines and schedules to streamline your home and manage the chaos of motherhood so you and your family can prosper!
When motherhood gets too overwhelming and you feel like you’re on the verge of a breakdown, there’s nothing better than having a source of inspiration and encouragement!
I love sharing my mom life experiences, hoping it will help and bring encouragement to other moms! (You can read more about my journey to the blogging world here!).
A little bit about me!
I met the love of my life in college and we got married in 2011. Our wedding was at Disney World, which was a dream come true for me! I was offered the position as Registrar of the school I graduated from and I was able to lead, counsel, and mentor young women, eventually becoming ordained as a Reverend.
After 2 years of being married we were surprised to find out I was pregnant and as caught off guard we could possibly be, we were thrilled, frightened, and excited!
Sadly, my pregnancy lasted only 11 weeks, resulting in a miscarriage that would change my life forever. (You can read more about my heartbreaking miscarriage story here.)
My husband and I knew that we would forever be parents from that moment and we desired to have a child that we could cradle and hold. Within 3 months we were expecting again!
Fast forward 9 months and we had the most beautiful little princess. Baby L was the best addition to our lives making us a perfect little family. Through the happiness of having a baby in the home, things were very hard.
Along with joy came colic, fussiness, gas, crying, pain, sadness, baby blues, and so much more.
I am nowhere near perfect and it was almost impossible to keep going some days but I’m here to say that it was worth it! Through the hardest times, I learned so much about my husband, my daughter, my family, and most of all myself. I learned to love, rejoice, forgive, and grow.
I hold a Biblical Studies Diploma in Marriage & Family and dedicate my life to counseling, mentoring, and helping moms feel confident in their motherhood.
I would love to be able to help, guide and encourage you through the good times, bad times, happy times, and glad times of motherhood.
Which is why my mission is to help you master this life of challenges and unpredictability with support, encouragement, help, advice, and tips/tricks to make mom life easier.
Are you ready to eliminate overwhelm and fall in love with motherhood??
Remember, mom life may not be easy- but it’s worth it.
