ITA59 – Don’t Give Up On the Girl Inside – A Chat with Emily Wierenga

By October 22, 2014Podcast

“Don’t give up on the girl inside.” I can’t stop thinking about this simple phrase Emily said in our conversation about her story and her book Atlas Girl.

As moms, the voice of the girl inside can get drowned out by all the expectation, comparison and busyness of life. Sometimes we can forget who we are, what we dream and the story that made us who we are.

Spinach Feta Mushroom Pizza – this is SO good.
Baked Spaghetti – simple, fast and the kids love it.
French Toast – Mmmmm….
