I am a Twin Cities Mom: Meggie Martin

Today’s I am a Twin Cities Mom feature is all about Meggie Martin

“Hi! I am a wife, mom of four (6, 4, 2,1) and a business owner. I created Illuminated Mom because I am passionate about supporting moms on their motherhood journey and helping them co-create their dream life. I am a spiritual woman with a unique ability to support moms on a soulful level. I always strives to show the authentic and real side of motherhood. It is not always easy, but it is 100% worth it!”

What do you love about calling the Twin Cities home?

We love all the parks, lakes, and adventures you can have within a 30-60 min drive.

If we peeked in your purse right now, what would we find?

I don’t have one! I literally just carry my wallet chalk full of stuff and my keys.

How do you prioritize friendships and connections with other women?

We set up monthly mom nights and have a group chat.

Being a mom is no easy task. How do you relax and take care of you?

My house is crazy and loud. I’ve had to set really strong boundaries for myself/family to do the things that fill myself up— moving my body, meditating and journaling are my daily non-negotiables. I also work to have one day a week where I get help with the littles so I can go run errands or do things alone. Lastly, I get monthly facials that relax and rejuvenate me— it’s my one big splurge a month!

What’s been your greatest joy in motherhood?

I love watching my littles learn and grow! I love when they pick up a new skill or words.

What have you found most challenging in your motherhood journey?

Expectation vs. reality- I think it can be hard in so many ways. Social media can make it challenging when all you see are highlight reels of someone’s life rather than the reality.

How do you hope your life influences and/or inspires other women?

Great question! My hope in life is to show and teach moms how powerful they are. We are the creators of our lives and anything is possible for us and our families. You can have it all – you just have to believe it’s possible!
