Podcast #9 // Ashley Mitchell from Blessings in Basket


After the podcast with Karen Hammons, she messaged me and said, you’ve got to talk to Ashley Mitchell from Blessings in a Basket.  I immediately gave her a Google and found her non-profit organization and read her story.

And then I emailed her and asked her to please be a guest.  I knew her story would inspire other, and I knew she’d have a lot of good things to say about living an authentic, perfectly imperfect life.

And she said yes!  Here’s what we talked about:

+Both of our tendencies to be people pleasures.

+Ashley’s story of adoption, and how she started Blessings in a Basket.

+How we both DON’T do it all.

+Comparing ourselves to other moms.

+The pressure of being a positive role model for our children (and the pressure Ashley feels as serving as a role model for the women in her organization.)

I can’t thank Ashley enough for opening up her heart and sharing her story.  Be sure to check out Blessings in a Basket to learn more about Ashley and her cause.

Tune in next week when I’m joined by Christina from The Scrappy Housewife.  Be sure to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, and if you have a minute, please rate and review the show.  Thank you!
