    Maggie Gyllenhaal! Ever since I saw the picture of her breast feeding her child, and not giving two craps about who was watching her do something completely natural. She didn’t even feel the need to cover up and I find that so empowering and inspiring.

    My mom inspires me. She always made sure that her kids had everything they needed and put off her own goals so we could achieve ours.

    My grandmother inspires me everyday. She raised 5 children who worship her still. She was a great mother, grandmother and the best friend ever. If I could be a great listener like she was for her family then I know my girls will love me forever!

    Erin, a wonderful mother that I work with, has 4 boys under age 4! 3 year old twins, a 2 year old & a six week old. She was out on the beach in a bikini just days after delivering her 4th! She has already started home schooling for the older boys. Did I mention I work with her? So she also works 20+ hours a week outside the home. She accomplishes all of this while her husband travels almost 6 days a week for work! She amazes me!

  • Megan said:

    My mom inspires me, because she raised my brother and I while my dad traveled 90% of the time, and she is now helping me and my husband raise our little one since we both work , and I don’t know how she raised us without a ton of help, but she did. I’m so lucky to have her live close.

    The moms who inspire me the most are definitely my mom and Tori Spelling. They both work to support their families and give guidance and support to those around them. My mom has been there for me since the day I told her I was pregnant and I have been grateful ever since. She loves my little girl and that’s all I could ask for.

    Angelina. Sheesh! That lady has 3 of her own, 3 adopted, is always beautiful, works with several charities, and has a hot husband. If I didn’t like her so much, I’d hate her! :) It really makes me step back and realize my crazy hectic life is pretty managable compared to others and I should be grateful.

    It isn’t a celebrity Mom that inspires me, but a close friend. She had her twin babies, a boy and a girl, at 24 weeks gestation. They are now almost 5 months and thriving. They are finally home after an intensive stay in the NICU and I am amazed everyday and her strength and perseverance as a mother. I myself am a Mother to a beautiful 2 year old little girl and I have two more weeks before I give birth to her new baby sister and seeing how she juggles new motherhood with preemie twins is amazing.

  • Emily said:

    My mom inspires me. She overcame so much while raising us, and has been the biggest encouragement to me in raising my boys.

    Although my mom is no longer with us she was an inspiration in my life. Watching her struggle to take care of the 4 of us and gave us what we wanted in life was a blessing

    I definitely have more than one.

    My Mother: She has been through some amazingly difficult trials and always has been positive and thinks of others. She is the best example a daughter can have.

    My Grandmother: My mother takes after her for sure, she is an amazing women who has the biggest heart and is so unselfish, always serving and doing for others whatever she can to make their day/life better.


    My sister: Watching her trials with losing her baby and waiting 4 years to adopt a sweet baby boy and the great mother she is, I don’t think I could go through what she has.

    many friends and ladies I have grown up with are an inspiration to me in one way or another by their great examples!

  • Adrienne D said:

    My mom inspires me more than anyone or anything in this world. Now that I’m an adult I can see all that she sacrificed for me and my siblings to have a wonderful childhood. It is both heartbreaking and heartwarming knowledge, and I love her more and more everyday.

  • Sarah Martin said:

    My Mom inspires me. She has been such a great role model and she hasn’t had it easy. My adopted brother has cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He is now 23 years old and she keeps such a positive attitude.
