This week I’m sharing an inspiring conversation I had with the awesome Kate Wicker, author of the newly-published Getting Past Perfect: How to Find Joy and Grace in the Messiness of Motherhood.

Kate shares beautifully about her own struggles in motherhood, along with what ultimately inspired her to write this important book. Tune in and let us know what you think!

    I wanted to leave my feedback on the negative feedback you had received from a listener. First – PLEASE keep the chit chat going at the beginning of the podcast. I enjoy it and feel like we get to know you better that way. Second – the patreon plugs don’t bother me. Keeping it to one announcement per podcast seems reasonable. Thanks for continuing to provide such a great podcast!

  • Thank you so much, Jessica. Your encouragement means a lot! <3

  • Lauren Landon

    I agree with Jessica! I don’t mind the chit chat! If I really want or need to get to the point, I skip forward. Also, the thing I love about podcasts is that I don’t feel guilty for not listening to them (as opposed to a book, where I feel like I *have* to finish), so for me I don’t mind chit chat.

  • Thanks so much, Lauren! I appreciate your encouragement and your feedback. I love that about podcasts too. 🙂

    Hi Danielle,
    Please do not listen to the suggestion that you get rid of your opening monologue! I love that part! It’s my favorite!
    Every time I start your podcast, I feel like I’m catching up with a good friend and finding out what she did in the past week. It makes your podcast very personal.
    I’ve been a loyal listener this past year, and I first heard about you when you wrote columns for the Register. (I personally think they should have used one of your articles every week.) I feel like we began our motherhood journey together (married in ’95, baby in ’96, 7 kids total) and your articles really made me able to handle the stresses of those early years and laugh at so many of my mess ups.
    Keep up your awesome work. I don’t know how you do all you do, but I am glad you do it.
    God bless,
