Motherhood has a special way of bringing us face to face with the darkest pieces of ourselves.
Today, I’m talking with Jessie Kazner about the joy, peace, and healing that can be found when we face these seasons with acceptance and presence over ego and control.
Jessie is a writer, former reporter, actress, and author of Don't Just Sit There, Do Nothing. She shares her unique experience as a child immigrant from the Soviet Union and how deep hardship has defined her journey through parenting and back home to herself.
