What does joyful courage mean to you?

What comes to mind is really tied to what we’ve been talking about. The bitter and the sweet of these relationships with our kids. They’re so important to us and we have to be courageous to be able to let them go. They need roots and wings. We can’t keep them in a cage, we have to let them fly.

See you next week!! :)

“It is great to know that I have a place to go when I'm really struggling with parenting. I feel more hope having this group.”

“I don’t feel as alone, it’s so nice to communicate with so many Mom’s who have an idea of what I’m experiencing. I’ve never felt supported in my parenting journey before and you help me feel supported, thank you Casey! I love the community space. It’s so helpful to be able to reach out for support when I’m experiencing a parenting challenge and to be able to support other Moms who need support too.”
