How did you feel about moving to a new place and being the “new mom”?
Maybe uncertain, or uncomfortable. It can be scary to put yourself out there. My guest on this episode knows ALL about being the new mama on the block and finding a community of support, again and again, and again.
My guest this episode is Meagan Riggs. Meagan is a military spouse and mama to five beautiful young children, currently living on her adorable farm in North Carolina.
As a military spouse, she has moved many times, so she is no newbie to finding community and wanting to belong.
More about the guest:
Meagan is a passionate lover of sunshine and open spaces as well as homeschooling and homesteading. She says that making her home fills not just her days, but her heart to overflowing.
She finds joy in gathering with friends and loved ones, studying the enneagram (she’s a 3), and that entire 30 seconds when all the laundry is done.
While she says that she’s far from perfect, she’s found the beauty of true belonging in her faith and in grace that never fails.
We talk about
- Her experience finding and creating authentic community anywhere
- How moms can help other moms feel less alone
- How she manages the ups and downs of moving over and over as a military mama with five young children – one who has special needs.
- And of course her goats!!
