By empowering, educating and connecting women through storytelling, Mellisa Reeves is able to achieve our goal of helping mothers awaken the confidence already within. Both on our show and on this website, we occasionally use affiliate links to products and services that we know and trust. These are products I have personal experience with and believe that they will benefit this community.
When you use these links, I receive a small commission (thanks for helping me do my work!). While not all links on this site are affiliate links, you can assume that any link is an affiliate link and that I may/will receive compensation. What you pay for the product doesn’t change at all — it’s the same price! If I share something that includes a discount code I may still receive an affiliate commission without affecting the discount offered to you.
This is an easy way you can support the work that I do and ensures that I can continue to create and share amazing, inspiring content for you all. I appreciate your support of the show and your trust in our recommendations!

I participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to These companies have no connection with this page and do not sponsor nor support content. In my posts and sidebar, I sometimes link to other sites. Some of these links are affiliate links. This means that if you purchase something from that site after clicking over from Mellisa Reeves, I receive a [super-small] percentage of the sale. Clicking through these links does not cost you any more than you’d already be spending.
