Hardy Mom - Help for Health Challenged Moms

With 7 kids ages 10-32 and multiple health challenges, Jen's got a unique perspective on how to live well and get things done, even when it's tough.


How does that help you? She shares her tips and tricks that she's learned over those years - what really works and what doesn’t - because you  want to focus your energy where it makes the most impact. As a Catholic Mom, she’s learned that a focus on faith is important to living a quality life, and it’s important she shares how to incorporate that into daily living.


Whether you’ve got physical challenges, like migraines, diabetes, fibromyalgia etc. or you’re struggling through anxiety or depression, Jen can help you live well. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word Hardy means: "robust; capable of enduring difficult conditions.” And that's what we are, Hardy Moms. Want more?
