Publisher's Summary

Full-time FindingJoy.net blogger, speaker, marketer, podcaster, and single mom of seven, Rachel Marie Martin presents a rallying cry to anyone who believes the lie that she is "just a mom".

Over the years, you willingly pour everything you have into your family, but in the process, you lose the essence of who you are. In her characteristic raw and visceral style, Rachel teaches you how to rewrite the pages of your story, follow your passion, and discover the beauty of who you are. Drawing on lessons from her own incredible journey - together with insight from conversations with thousands of other women - Rachel encourages moms to break cycles, take off masks, and prevent fear from taking control. She balances her "no excuses" approach with breathing room and grace for those messy moments in life and mothering. Rachel reminds you there is always a reason to hope, to move forward, and to dare the impossible. You can make changes. You can pursue dreams, find yourself, and live a life of deep happiness and boundless joy. Stop waiting for "someday". Take hold of the moment, and say yes to your dreams.

Rachel’s narrative on this title was the best I have ever listened to.

I have purchased many audiobooks off Audible over the past two years. I have never honestly listened to a title that wasn’t only excellent and inspirational though the narrative was fantastic. Rachel’s words are clear and genuine. I highly recommend this title!

So so so good for all mamas.

I just finished and I am planning to listen again, this time with a notebook to capture all the great quotes. Dots and Stars, targets, and bravery all have a new meanings to me now. I feel like ordering one for all the Mamas in my life.

Motivational and supportive.

I found this book to be very motivational and supportive of the insecurities that we have as a parent, a partner, and a successful woman. There's just the right amount of humor built-in with the facts and the way that it truly is in our lives.

just what I needed to hear

I had no idea what I was going to get from this book, but I decided to go ahead and purchase. Every chapter had me evaluating my own life, really motivating me to get unstuck. Loved the practical aspects too!! Will definitely listen again!
