ITA #33 – When Motherhood Doesn’t Go As Planned – An Interview with Kathryn Jackson

By February 17, 2014Podcast

I’m going to warn you. This is an emotional episode. It isn’t your average motherhood story. Kathryn Jackson’s deep faith, honesty and response to a devastating car accident that reshaped her life will inspire you to look at your role as a mother in a new light.

Kathryn is a wife, mother of three and a blogger. In 2013 she blogged through the Bible, not only reading through the scriptures each and every day, but also sharing insight and wisdom on her blog. In addition to her blog through the Bible site, she also shares her journey on her own blog as a mother of three children, including Anne, whom you’ll hear about in today’s show.

Kathryn shares how isolating it can be as a caretaker, and offers several wonderful suggestions on how we can bless those in our lives who are going through trials.

  • Be intentionally inclusive
  • Engage and ask questions
  • Continue to find ways to recognize & meet needs
  • Don’t avoid sharing your own story
