In a world where so many women have shed past notions of what being a mom looks like, who can listeners turn to for real talk on soulful motherhood?

Nicole’s hope is that through this podcast mothers will be encouraged to believe in their dreams and prioritize joyful lives in order to teach their children to do the same.

A breathe of life in the midst of motherhood
I discovered this podcast when my daughter was only a few months old and my sanity was hanging on by a thread and have continued listening on past my daughters second birthday. This is one of the most truly inspiring motherhood podcast I've listened to and has absolutely none of the airs that other mom-casts have. What a genuinely vibrant and authentic and empathetic host Nicole is. Would recommend to every Mama!
I love this podcast! Everyone who comes on the show is just so genuine and real. ❤️❤️
