AM Lopez ,

Amazing Podcast!

Excellent podcast for mothers looking for a circle of support as they navigate through motherhood!

a secret weapon

I LOVE this podcast!! I happened to find this when searching a topic and this is one of my favorite podcasts now. I have truly learned so much from listening to your podcasts and I really cannot thank you enough. From the importance of self-care to being a home owner as a single mom (which I always thought was impossible until your podcast) you give me so much hope and the motivation to continue to better myself and that being a single mom is not an end all, be all. Please keep it coming, I'm a new listener and have so many back episodes saved that I can't wait to listen to. You have truly been so helpful and inspiring to me. I really want you to know that the work you're doing has touched and helped someone as well as I'm sure plenty others.

Right On Time!

I found this podcast right on time. I am a single mother of a 4 year old and still figuring out how to be the best parent I can be. The journey can be tough and lonely but this podcast has made me realize that I am not alone. So I thank you for being brave enough to start this inspiration because every time I press that play button I am immediately inspired to continue on and stay strong.
