Lynne Patti is a stay at home, homeschooling mama of 5 vibrant children. She is an editor and contributor to the Kindred Mom blog and podcast. Kindred Mom serves as a fulfilling break for Lynne from the every day mom-tasks of Cheerio pouring and fixing “funny socks.” She enjoys singing weekly with a professional choir, Lego building, and most importantly, connecting with good friends over good food. In her adulthood, she has found that God is real, gracious and abounding in love. Lynne and her family live in Los Angeles where, after 16 years, big city living has become their jam.

Robin Chapman is a full-time imperfect mama, wife, and Jesus follower. She lives in Fairbanks, Alaska with her husband of 13 years and four children (ages 1 to 7). She’s trying hard to learn how to do this motherhood thing in a way that doesn’t land the whole family in intensive therapy, and she has a heart for helping other mamas buried in the little years know they are normal and there is hope. You can find her hiding out in the bathroom with a cup of coffee, or online looking for grace in her mundane and crazy life on her blog, Instagram, or Facebook.

Lindsey Cornett is a loud talker, iced coffee drinker, and lover of the written word who writes from the intersection of faith, family, and freedom. She’s married to Evan, and together they live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with three kiddos (four and under). Over time, she is learning to relinquish her perfectionism and embrace her life and creativity as-is. In the process, she’s become passionate about encouraging other women to embrace the freedom Jesus offers, which is rooted in the belief that we are enough just as we are. You can find more of Lindsey’s writing on her personal website, on Instagram, and over at the The Drafting Desk, a thoughtful monthly newsletter which she co-writes to inspire women toward freedom from perfectionism.
