Thankful For Shelly’s Support

This -N- That Parenting is a great support system for listening to other parents, asking questions, chiming in on discussions, and anything else that is brought up. Shelly does a great job bringing up up-to-date topics on parenting. It’s a very safe and real climate, and I just love all the topics she touches on. Her morning meetings have definitely given me insight into my parenting!

I Feel Motivated

Shelly is infectious. She motivates me to be a better version of myself personally and spiritually. Her honesty makes me feel comfortable with being imperfect. This is important to me because I have lived my life trying to be perfect rather than just being the best version of myself.

Who I Know Shelly To Be

Everything about Shelly hubs on authenticity. Truth, integrity, conviction, and passion show her core. All of this greatness is the earnestness behind her drive and willingness to strive to become better and commit her efforts to her life, work, family, and friendships.

High Expectations

I appreciate Shelly as a leader. I know that she has my best interest at heart and wants to see me succeed. She is not afraid to get in the trenches. I appreciate a leader who has practiced what they preach. Shelly is professional, motivational and high-performing.

Best Intentions For Kids

The best way I know how to describe Shelly is motherly. She has a lot of talents, skills, and stamina. There is so much that is great about her, but it all stems back to her motherliness. She will take anyone under her wing and cherish them like her own. The time and effort she puts into kids whether they are hers or not is beyond words.

Shelly is passionate. When she cares about something, she is 100% in. Actually 120%!
