Listen, I’m not a mom and I (thankfully) never will be. Instead of pretending I’m a mom and knowing what you’re looking for, I’ve worked through the last two years to make some good contacts in the mom’s blog world. There are a lot of great blogs out there, but it can be daunting to know which ones are worth your time. Luckily enough, I think I’ve stumbled onto one of them.
I was fortunate enough to meet Cascia from Healthy Moms Magazine a short time ago, and what I found was a blog and a magazine that is informative and (for the men reading) I even found some content that I (as dad) wanted to read about. Don’t believe me? Here’s a post about encouraging children in their sports without being…”that parent”. That post specifically spoke to me and I really want to make sure that I can be a good parent to my child when he gets deeper into the world of competitive sports. Now then, back onto Cascia and her magazine.
That lady just has it together, and she’s put together a crack squad of bloggers who provide content that range from:
- positive parenting
- healthy pregnancy tips
- natural beauty secrets
- the latest on fashion trends
- how to manage a family budget and save money
- personal stories about their Christian faith
- preparing simple healthy meals and…
- stories about their personal health and fitness struggles
When you put it in a list like that, it is pretty clear that Healthy Moms Magazine is pretty much a one-stop shop for moms (and like I said, dads) looking to live that healthy, happy lifestyle that we’re all after these days. In the words of Cascia, she’s “dedicated to educating busy moms on how to make simple lifestyle changes to take care of their whole self, mind, body and spirit.” That’s one heck of a goal if you ask me. I mean, by comparison, most bloggers would say “I’m here to make a little money” (not that there’s anything wrong with making a little money doing what you love).
One of the other things that I think is really important about the magazine is that it provides a viewpoint; a style of life. Cascia’s not looking to be everything to everyone, but she is looking to share her magazine’s perspective with moms. She has a strong Catholic faith and generally considers the magazine to hold conservative values.
Now, I don’t want to tell you everything and anything about Cascia and her site, but I do want you to head over there and have a read of one of her 7-10 weekly blog posts. If you like what you see (and I’m sure you will) then sign up for The Healthy Moms Magazine newsletter.
