Not Your “Average” Moms -Fresno – Let’s be real, not everyone lives behind a white picket fence, can carpool all the children to their extracurricular activities, work full time, cook a decent homemade dinner, and still have time for self-care. Some of us are single parents struggling with making ends meet, we’re step parents struggling with blending our families and quite honestly some of us do live behind that white picket fence but; the grass is dying and the pickets are falling. We are real moms. Real-life issues. Real-life questions along the way. We don’t water down how we live our lives, we make mistakes, cuss like sailors and at times drink a little too much to escape reality. We always feel like we can do it all but let’s be real help is needed. Support, friends, and community behind us with other similar stories. Our goal is to try to get together monthly, brainstorm ideas to make life easier, help each other out, network in our communities, support small businesses, and give back when/where we can. We want this to be a place of uplifting encouragement.
Phemom–Christian moms group based in People’s Church. A gathering of remarkable young moms, coming together to explore a two-fold question: Who am I and who am I here for?
