MomUP Ep. 5 | Encouragement for the Weary New Mom
I’m in that stage of life where I look around and it seems like a baby is born to someone I know every other day. My social media feeds start to become filled with photos of squishy toes and cheeks and love letters from sweet mamas to their precious babies. And I love it! I get it, and I’m in it and I love seeing those sweet photos and the celebration of love between a mother and her little one. And I did and do still love taking and sharing pictures of my children. But sometimes, through a...
MomUP Ep. 4 | Four lessons we’ve learned in four years of parenting
In MomUP episode 4 I'm joined by my husband, Dustin Raley. We list out four lessons we've learned in four years of parenting 2 kids - including some mistakes we've made, times we've changed our minds and how our kid's different personalities affect our decisions. Also a little bit of awkward laughter because we recorded this past the hour of optimal brain function. Like this episode? Have another topic idea?

Let me know what you thought about the episode on the website, or come say hello on Instagram @momuppodcast. And if you really want to make my day, would you mind taking...
MomUP Ep. 2 | Loving your season when the trenches feel deep
Welcome to episode 2 of MomUP! In this episode I chat with the ever so lovely Ellen Peek about the "trenches" of motherhood, and how to keep your head up in those difficult seasons. While raising little people fills our hearts till they burst, sometimes it's important to acknowledge the struggles so we can start moving UPwards. We each open up about some rough seasons we walked through and what we did (or didn't do) in the thick of it. We also chat about friendships (or lack of),...

Welcome to MomUP! (Promo Clip)
Welcome to the website for the MomUP podcast! I can't believe I'm finally here. It was last summer, almost a year ago when my husband actually came up with the idea of me starting a podcast (smart guy). After SO much trial an error, pushing the pause button a couple times due to life changes, and a whole lot of googling, we're here! And I couldn't be more excited. THANK YOU for joining me on this journey. I really want MomUP to become a community landing place for young moms. I want to...
