Avoiding Mommy Martyr Syndrome and Raising Daughters as Feminists ft. Kate Wicker


Hands up if you’ve ever struggled with getting past the idea of “perfect”. That's what I thought! Today’s podcast guest, author Kate Wicker, has been there. We chat all about mommy martyr syndrome and the importance of valuing yourself as a woman and human beyond the idea of a “mom”. There’s no one-size-fits-all to holiness! Even if you’re not a mama, I think the idea of getting over “perfect” is one that can resonate. Kate also offers great tips for raising daughters to be feminists, which I love.
