In this episode of the Chaos N’ Cookies Podcast, we are joined by Kelly Stewart who is a licensed social worker and adoption consultant. She is a mother of four, married twenty-three years, and a FASTer Way to Fat Loss Certified Coach. She walks us through all things Kelly Stewart. From her favorite lemon cookie to her experience with adoption. She speaks on her family’s dynamic throughout the adoption process and how mom guilt, healing, and embracing the unknown all got her family to a new level of love and trust. Creating a rich childhood for your children comes from embracing the culture of your own family and always being intentional.

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 of experience as the Director of Marketing building multiple court reporting companies. Lastly, I am a published writer and Content Coordinator for Neighbors Magazine 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.
