She is Great
I have just discovered Anna and she is one of my new favorites!
Her voice is so incredibly soothing and comforting to a frazzled mom’s ears. She focuses on rest, and as a mom of two young kids it’s something I NEED to hear, especially from a professional. I love that most episodes are short, I listen to them on my way home from drop off or on my way to the office. Her kindness and compassion has actually brought me to tears a few times. In a good way.
Short & sweet pick me up
Love this podcast. I find that it really gives me encouragement as a new mom. It’s a quick pick me up when you need it throughout the day. I also find the tips really practical and helpful.
Your words are kind and compassionate and your insight is much appreciated right now. I’m grateful for some of the tips and reminders as I navigate this strange time with my family.
