009 // Robin Chapman – The Learning Curve of Motherhood

In this episode, Emily Allen talks with Robin Chapman about her essay, “The Learning Curve of Motherhood” and the truth about parenting choices not being one-size-fits-all. The conversation touches on feeling uncertain in the early months of motherhood, and the humbling moments that come around even for experienced mamas. They talk about navigating the information overload to find parenting solutions that work for your family’s needs.

Robin Chapman is a full-time imperfect Jesus lover, wife, and mama to four babies, six and down. When she isn’t buried in children or hiding from them, she enjoys reading, photography, and sharing stories on her blog, where she’d love to connect with you! You can also find her on Facebook or Instagram… or perhaps hiding in her bathroom with some coffee.
