Episode 192: Motherhood – Remaining You While Raising Them with Alli Worthington

Motherhood. It’s a loaded word with a vast array of connotations. Some good. Some not so good. Men listening will gain some beautiful insights about the women they walk alongside. Women, whether you want to be a mom, have already launched your kids, or are in the middle of the journey, this episode is for you. Our guest today is going to not only bless your socks off with practical wisdom, hope and grace for today, but she’s a trusted voice for the modern woman and we hope you lean in close.  You’ll get a preview of her new book, Remaining You While Raising Them, as you listen to Alli Worthington explain that modern motherhood is broken and the reality for many moms is that they are hitting the “Mother Load”, living on the verge of burnout. This is not a typical parenting conversation, and this is not a typical parenting book,, but a resource for moms who are ready to grow in their own ability to emotionally regulate, and ready to learn who they are and what they need. Don’t wait until after your kids are launched to show them what healthy mothering looks like. And…know that you won’t feel more mom guilt after listening today. In fact, you might feel a little lighter.


Alli Worthington, known for her straight-talking encouragement and practical tools that help women reach their dreams in business and life, is the author of five books including The Year of Living Happy, Fierce Faith, Breaking Busy, and her latest, Remaining You While Raising Them. She is a speaker, podcaster, and life and business coach who launched Called Creatives, a cohort of women speakers and writers. Her guilt-free take on business, family, and balance has led to multiple appearances on The TODAY Show and Good Morning America. Alli lives with her husband, Mark, and their five sons outside of Nashville.
