Welcome to The Make Room Show, the podcast where we help you make room for what matters in your life. I'm your host, Jennifer Ford Berry, a professional organizer with years of experience in helping families simplify their homes and create space for the things that truly matter.
In this episode, we are joined by three amazing speakers and hosts of our upcoming Focus Retreat! Lori Beth Auldridge, Amy Debrucque, and Becky Kopitzke, and I talk about the importance of making room for motherhood. We discuss how simplifying your schedule and possessions can create more time and space for meaningful connections with your family. We also touch on the power of saying no to commitments that don't align with your values and priorities.
Each of our guests shares their unique perspective on motherhood based on their background and culture. Lori Beth talks about the importance of hospitality in Southern culture, while Becky emphasizes the value of hard work and a strong work ethic from growing up in the Midwest. Amy shares how her multicultural background has influenced her approach to motherhood and the importance of diversity.
As a professional organizer, I also provide my own insights and tips on how to create a home and a life that supports and nurtures your family. I discuss the importance of decluttering and organizing your space to create a more peaceful and functional home, as well as the power of delegating tasks and asking for help when needed.
We wrap up the episode with some valuable advice for new moms and those struggling to make room for motherhood in their lives. We discuss the importance of not comparing yourself to others, trusting your instincts, and taking care of yourself.
As a professional organizer with a passion for helping families create space for what matters, I am excited to share this episode with you. Whether you are a new mom or have been in the game for a while, there is something in this episode for everyone. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy this inspiring conversation on making room for motherhood.
