Moms are busier now than they've ever been. Driving carpools, shopping for groceries, running a business, paying bills, helping with homework, keeping up on laundry, attending PTA meetings, planning vacations, watching kids' events, scheduling doctor appointments, making dinner, going to parent-teacher conferences, cleaning the house, earning money, taking care of sick kids--the list goes on and the tasks are there day after day. Only a superhero could keep up with all that, right? Well, a superhero or a mom.
At Mommy High Five, we feel it's important to celebrate motherhood and the moms who are impacting the world. Our hope is that we can encourage, uplift, and inspire moms by highlighting mothers who are doing extraordinary things.
We interview moms from across the world who are entrepreneurs, politicians, athletes, musicians, healthcare workers, non-profit starters, stay-at-home moms, and many more. You will find these stories on our website as well as on our podcast "Inspiring Moms". If you or someone you know would like to share her inspiring story with us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fortunately, her warmth and kindness come through in her voice, … [Read more...] about Deidre Henderson: Inspiring Mom
Stephanie Bruce: Inspiring Mom
Those who know me know that I love to run. Although I am not exceptionally fast or up to running exceptionally long distances, one thing is for sure: I am consistent. That’s probably because I see running as an emotional outlet, an excuse to spend time outside, and a way to challenge myself physically. While I love running, my pace would seem leisurely compared to Stephanie … [Read more...] about Stephanie Bruce: Inspiring Mom
