It has always been my belief that we, as women, need to laugh more. Mothers experience some of the most stressful working conditions on the planet, and stress can be dangerous to women´s overall health and longevity. Humor can reduce stress because it is reassuring and diffuses fear and anxiety. It is also an effective relaxation and coping tool. "Scientific evidence has shown that laughter helps people breathe easier, and it massages the heart and other vital organs. Other studies have shown that a positive outlook guards against illness and may even increase longevity."1 One study from Vanderbilt University shows that humor can even help you lose weight! Reading a humorous book and laughing just 15 minutes a day for one year could net you a loss of up to four pounds! 2


I have found humor to be a balm in my life.

Writing the essays for "Confessions of a completely (in)Sane Mother " has been a form of therapy for me when family life gets stressful. I hope it will be therapeutic for you as well.


In today's busy world mothers have become isolated from one another. Women of all ages need to interact more, share stories, teach, and support one another in their sacred calling as mothers and grandmothers. I hope this website will become a gathering place for mothers and grandmothers to laugh, find friendships, ideas, and spiritual strength.
