Are you new to your community and unsure how to rebuild your network?
Do you feel stuck in a hyperactive cycle of activities and draining relationships?
Confidently Connected: A Mom’s Guide to a Satisfying Social Life is the e-book for you.
Whether you are a new or seasoned mom–-working, staying home or somewhere in between–-this book will show you how to:
- Find a parenting group that matches your needs, parenting philosophy and personality.
- Connect and converse with confidence.
- Empower yourself to contend with draining relationships and mommy cliques.

Research shows that strong social networks and family connections can help us live longer, healthier and happier lives. Social bonding among women boosts oxytocin levels, a natural hormone that combats stress, anxiety and depression. Even a couple of hours spent with friends can provide emotional nourishment, reducing your stress and lifting your spirits. As a result, you’ll return home a happier, more effective parent with increased energy and enthusiasm.
If you feel alone and isolated, Confidently Connected will gently guide you back out into the world. You’ll learn how to breathe new life into your network and regain your footing with a sense of purpose and support. This ebook will also help you prioritize, develop boundaries and create a network that complements rather than controls your life.
As a mom, you not only embody one of life’s most important callings, you’re engaged in one of the world’s most challenging jobs. You don’t have to go it alone. Tackle each day feeling confident, empowered and connected.

“About a month or so after having a baby, Confidently Connected: A Mom’s Guide to a Satisfying Social Life should be presented as a gift to new moms, either from others or as mama’s gift to herself. We can get easily lost in the no-sleep, forever-diaper-changing, continuously-comforting-and-keeping-alive season with our brand new blessing. In a day when social media offers more connection than ever before, it doesn’t replace face time with new friends and community in a society where we’re often isolated from one another. When the new mama comes up for air, this book will be a handy guide.” ~ Rhonda Franz, managing editor/ParentingSquad.com, mom of three, and early childhood/special education specialist.
