Mom Bloggers Changing the World: I Drank the Kool-Aid

Mothers are telling their stories publicly as never before. Stories that for centuries took place in the kitchen, around a fire, with a cup of tea over the back fence – are now broadcast on our blogs and bleeding into mainstream media. Over the weekend at “BlissDom”, an unabashedly warm and love-filled blogging conference, Catherine Connors from reminded us of how radical this act is. She urged us to keep telling our stories. As we do, we re-shape the narrative of not only motherhood, but womanhood and what it means to be human.


"I had a moment of powerful connection. No child deserves to grow up without a mother."

Meet Jenny Lucas, mother to a 4-year-old daughter and 4-month-old son and winner of the contest we held in the Million Moms Challenge Community last year! In a random drawing, Jenny won a gift basket that included an iPad2, a beautifully crafted Million Moms Challenge necklace and a $50 donation in her name to Global Giving. Our Community Manager, Chrysula, sat down to ask her all about what brought her to our site and why she has stayed connected.
