    Olivia's Mission: Helping Women feel Seen, Heard, and Not Forgotten  

    The reason WHY she is so passionate about women feeling empowered through parenthood is from her first NOT great experience. Now let's catch up on what it's like to have two kids 18 months apart, toddlers, teething, temper tantrums, sneaking chocolate, wanting to be the best parent, and sometimes feeling like you're failing WHILE going back to school to help other Mama's.

    Having Unity In The Home - with Edwin & Colleen Thomason - Season 6 Episode 13

    Having Unity In The Home - with Edwin & Colleen Thomason - Season 6 Episode 13

    We talked about upbringing, meeting, and dating, her first pregnancy resulting in a miscarriage, then kids being born a year apart. Their commitment to each other, their relationship, and their kids are amazing to hear. They waited to have sex until marriage - and it was Colleen's first time. That allowed them to form other strong connections with each other outside of physical intimacy. Christianity is the foundation of their relationship.
