“IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO NOT NEGLECT YOURSELF. YOU ARE THE BEST TO YOUR KIDS WHEN YOU ARE HAPPY. AND YOU ARE HAPPY WHEN YOU ARE REMEMBERING WHO GOD CREATED YOU TO BE.”
Don’t you just love Brandon already?! She is our guest on today’s podcast episode – and when she said this during our conversation, I was like YES, TELL IT, SISTER. Because truth be told, it can be SO easy to lose ourselves on the wonderful, beautiful, chaotic journey of motherhood.
I’ve been friends with Brandon for years now – and I just knew I wanted to have her on the show because of her sweet soul and how much I resonate with her view on life and motherhood.
Brandon is a singer/songwriter, wife to a fabulous music producer, mother of 3 (including twins!), and has the most AMAZING song out right now (listen HERE). BUT it was a journey for her to get back to music. Because, like all us moms tend to do, we put our passions on the back burner to fully give ourselves to our families.
Brandon was born and raised in Mississippi and realized at a young age that she loved to sing. As a matter of fact, she actually recorded her first album at 12 (I was so shocked to learn this)! And then, hilariously, hustled her way into her first songwriting publishing deal with her sister at 19.
In this conversation, Brandon brings us into her journey from singing in church to playing in bars, her pregnancy path with PCOS, and that amazing song she just released.
We also cover:
- Her unexpected path with TWINS,
- How to have ‘the talk’ (you know the one) with your kids,
- Why our bar for a ‘good mom’ is actually pretty stupid – and what the bar SHOULD be, and
- The surprising and scary thing we suggest if you have a highschool senior
- How she found her way back to her passion and HERSELF.
I know you’re going to fall in love with Brandon as much as I did.
And like I said, you’ll want to stream her song HERE.
