Wendy Foulke

Wendy is thankful for the truths God has taught her throughout various seasons of motherhood. Through trials and triumphs, motherhood has been an opportunity for Wendy to grow close to God and to see His mercy. While her own children now range in age from teen to adult, she has a desire to encourage mothers of all ages and stages.

Sharon Ahrendt

Psalm 5:11 has been a favorite verse for Sharon in navigating both the good and hard times in motherhood: “But rejoice, all who take refuge in You, Sing for joy forever! And may You shelter them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You.” With many of her children now within the young adult years, Sharon has learned that finding her refuge in Christ fills her with peace and hope as she navigates being a mother to grown children.

Kim Lechman

Kim is a wife and mother who has realized that parenting does not end when our children leave home. Being a mother to her grown son (and little grandchildren!) continues to be a privilege she is thankful for. She values encouraging women within the transitions of motherhood, sharing what God has shown her, and remaining faithful to what God has called her to do as we run the race together!
