How Ambition Made Me A Better Mom

WRITTEN BY LILY UGBAJA Who is a mother? What is her purpose, her higher calling? I thought I had all the answers 3 years ago until suddenly I didn’t. We were on our way back home from church that sunny Sunday afternoon when my 2 year old threw a major tantrum. It was...

Wherever You Are, Be All There

WRITTEN BY JENNIFER MILLER It’s funny how fast life goes when you have kids. The day to day can get overwhelming, but we make it through some how, don’t we? The sleepless nights, teething, terrible twos, and the endless diapers will come to an end. Then we are...

Millennial Mama: Becoming Me

This year has been a year of MASSIVE change for me and my family. Not only have I created and launched a business AND a blog while staying at home with my babies, internally, I am not the same person I was last fall. Not by miles. My emotions and thoughts are...

Because You’ve Got This, Mama

Earlier this year, before the launch of my candle business and prior to hitting “publish” on my first blog post for Her Brilliant Life, I found myself a bit clouded and misplaced. I was struggling to navigate my way through a new chapter in my life, learning how to be...
