Mom 1: Molly Porter 

Blog : Half Ass Homemaker

Molly lives in NW Portland with her two girls, her sweet husband, and their two cats. She is parenting with intention, feeding the clan with careful intention, and trying to keep the house in order. It's tricky to do all three things. Especially when what she really wants to do is laze about in the park talking with The Mamas drinking a glass of wine while the kiddos run amok.

She writes about the struggle to figure it all out without losing focus of what really matters: Teaching the sweet babies to go forth with kindness and confidence.

From neighborhood walks to wilderness forays, the blog is peppered with tips, humor, and a dose of day-to- day mom life. Originally created simply for parents who wanted to get their families into nature, it has transformed into a collection of opinions, adventures, and blind- leading-the- blind humor that pushes the blog somewhere between lifestyle, environmental stewardship, and first time mom jitters.

The Made to Mother (M2M) Project was founded by Wynter, a wife and mother by day, and writer and editor every extra minute. Wynter is also a birth mom to a teenage boy somewhere out there.

Motherhood is such a powerful force in many women’s lives, and when we engage with other women swapping stories of life in the mommy trenches, it helps us remember that we are not alone. We ALL have a story to tell and SOMEONE out there will be moved by hearing them. Made to Mother tells the stories of how women have been shaped, inspired, and encouraged by the women around us. When we tell our stories, they continue to shape, inspire, encourage, and change others for generations to come.

Mom 8 : Susan Dieter-Robinson 

Blog : Love Drenched Life

Susan does not consider herself a natural writer but rather found the gift of writing as a tool to help her move through grief after her daughters, Anna and Abigail, went to Heaven due to a tragic accident in 2013. A dear friend set up a blog and gifted her an outlet to pour her broken heart. She’s been writing ever since. She will forever be grateful for this gift as she has found that the written word along with her unwavering faith in God has allowed her to stay very connected to her daughters and their beautiful lives here and in Heaven. 

She is also a contributor at the Portland Mom's Blog and founder of Love Rocks,
