Welcome!

Hello! My name is Amy and I am The Optimistic Mama! I am a stay at home mom to three under five, married to the love of my life, doing the best I know how to be light to our three little people. My hope is to grow them into difference makers, each their own beacon of light. I live in rural Southern Ontario where I enjoy (extremely) early mornings with my wee ones leading to full coffee mugs and beautiful sunrises, walks amongst the trees, small hands in mine, adventures in stick and pebble collection and anything in between.

Motherhood is not for the faint of heart. It can leave you feeling depleted, unsure and often wondering if you are alone wading in the mom guilt, the role confusion, the insecurities and the constant, what now and what next?!

Friends you are NOT ALONE!

The intention behind The Optimistic Mama is to be a voice of encouragement in a perpetually exhausting season of life. My hope to all who read my words is a simple one; be encouraged!
