Have you ever been angry as a mom? Um, I’m sure you have. Anger is part of overwhelm and it’s a natural emotion. In this episode, we are talking about how we can work through negative emotions as a mom. I am joined by fellow working Christian mom, Natalie Hixon. She is also a life coach, speaker, and author specializing in helping moms that deal with anger, and overwhelm to live their best lives and be the best mom they can be.

She enjoys her own motherhood journey by hanging with her husband Mike and their three daughters in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. She recharges with Jesus, coffee and adventures with her family like skiing in the winter, hiking and swimming in the summer and traveling year-round!
