We feature writing from mothers with all different mothering experiences including married moms, single moms, adoptive moms, step-moms, ethnically diverse moms, and moms of children with special needs/unique challenges. New writers are always welcome!

Strong, Brave & Beautiful Series

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2021

We are now accepting submissions for our extended 2021 series: Strong, Brave & Beautiful. This series is a celebration of the recent Kindred Mom book release Strong, Brave & Beautiful: Stories of Hope for Moms in the Weeds. The series will feature story-driven essays exploring themes of motherhood and how strength, courage, and beauty are found in both expected and unexpected places.

Essay topics may include, but are not limited to:

Spiritual health & wholeness, physical disciplines and the process of strengthening our bodies, teaching kids strength of character, endurance, perseverance, and learning how to press forward even when you don’t feel like it

Resilience, courage, facing fear, taking risks, helping kids develop confidence (or growing in yourself), fostering age-appropriate independence and self-reliance in our kids, overcoming obstacles

Self-esteem, body image, self-care, character-building, selflessness, tender mothering moments, the beauty in each new stage of motherhood, stories of meaningful sibling and family relationships, biblical foundations for families
