This week we are talking all things barefoot shoes – something that I’ve been deeply passionate about for years. For me, making the switch to shoes that have a wide toe box, zero drop heel (they are flat), thin soles (around 4mm thick), and super flexible (they roll up) has reduced my pain levels dramatically from all that happens to a body during pregnancy. We are covering the why to wear them, what to do to make the switch, where the kids and I have gotten our shoes and sandals, and my best tips for keeping it budget friendly.

Thriving in Motherhood Podcast Community on Patreon

Patreon is the place where we can come together as mothers and intentionally cultivate growth together. Each month you can gain access to printable worksheets that go along with topics in the podcast to help us slow down and make lasting change – not just be inspired for a few days and then move on. These worksheets are what I’m personally working on and talking about with my closest friends – and I want YOU to join us!

Cultivate your growth intentionally with us through two worksheets a month, a online community, and a monthly group video call to share our “big wins” and things we are still working on.
