I'd like to introduce you to Kjersti, the author behind Wild Child Mama, who says, "If You Thought It, I Probably Did It. Now I'm Just Wild About Being A Mama".
Here is a little bit about her: "I was a wild child. I gathered whatever experience my unabashed heart told me to. At some point lost, I control. Or, I should say, at some point I admitted that I’d lost control. I just celebrated my 10th, yes, TENTH year of sobriety in September! Woohoo! With support from my loving husband and family, I am living an unassuming and fabulous life.
Before becoming a stay-at-home-mom, I performed and taught social justice theatre in the public school system, but it wasn’t until I had my two children than I began writing. Becoming a mother catapulted me into exploring the wild stories of my past to uncover my truth so I could pass along wisdom rather than chaotic cycles of self-destruction.
I stumbled upon Mommy Only Has Two Hands several months ago and was drawn to her courage to overcome the challenges she faced growing up. As Heather says in her bio, “My quest is to be the best mother and wife I can be and to provide my children with lives full of love and nourishment. ” No matter what our path, we can always learn from our past to become the people we’ve always known we could be. That’s when our experiences become gifts of strength.
The story I am sharing today is about the first AA meeting I ever attended. On some level, addict or not, we can all relate to each other. And that’s what it’s all about; uniting, relating, feeling less alone through storytelling.
Thank you so much, Heather, for allowing me this opportunity to share my story with your amazing readers. And for being brave enough to share your own story of growth."
