Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the things that we are thankful for but how do we teach “thankfulness” to our little ones? Turkey on the Table creators, Kerry and April, have come up with an amazing way to help our kids appreciate the things that they have while helping others at the same time. They have partnered with Feeding America to help families all over the country with over 1 million meals while helping other moms promote gratitude in the house throughout November and all year long.
About the Guest:
Kerry and April were stay at home moms with prior careers. Kerry was in Prescription Benefits Management and April owned a Retail store. They came up with the idea for Turkey on the Table on walks after preschool drop offs in Northern CA. They had a vision and wanted to teach their children a sense of gratitude. Their goal was to turn “thankfulness” into an activity, focusing on the things they have, and not the things they don’t. Since starting Turkey on the Table, they have been able to donate over 1 million meals to Feeding America. Their TOTT team is made up of 6 moms dedicated to helping others in operations, financials, and social media. Kerry still lives in Northern California with her family, while April and her family have relocated to Nashville, but they continue to be close friends and business partners after 7 years of working together.
About the Host:
Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full time job. As a busy mom of three, a wife to a traveling hubby, and keeping it weird in Austin, Texas, it’s safe to say that my life is never boring. In addition to running my coaching business as C’N’C’s CEO, I’m a certified coach for a premier virtual fitness and nutrition program helping others feel better while sustaining a healthy lifestyle. My mom and dad are thrilled that I’m putting my Exercise Science degree to good use. Along with my experience training pro athletes, S.W.A.T. members, and a high school football team, I gained 10+ years experience as the Director of Marketing building multiple court reporting companies.
Lastly, I am a published writer, Content Coordinator, and Account Executive for a publication by Best Version Media. They even gave me a monthly “How to” column where I teach others how to be more self-sufficient with common household tasks. Every woman should know how their home functions and what to do if something malfunctions, man or no man. With my husband on the road, searching “How To” on the internet has transformed me into a “Mommy MacGyver”. “I don’t know how you have the time.” “You’re like a Supermom!” These are common things that people say, but the truth is that life hasn’t always been easy or pretty. Even with the bumps, I always try to find the humor in everything because laughter is good for the soul and you should never take life too seriously….where’s the fun in that?
