Dana Bowman | Dec. 11-16th, 2019

Dana speaks and writes about recovery, momhood, and beating the perfection myth. An English teacher for over twenty years, she decided to take up a writing at momsieblog.com, while mothering two babies, because she had so much free time. Her first book, Bottled was selected as a Kansas Notable book in 2016. Her second book, How to Be Perfect Like Me was released August 2018. She had a horrible time with edits on this book and fully appreciates the irony.


Self-care in recovery is a new frontier. Join nationally acclaimed blogger, Dana Bowman, as she explores how to implement the five keys of self-care, even when we might think we don't deserve it.


For those struggling with perfectionism, it can be hard to surrender control, even if that is an essential step in recovery. Acclaimed blogger, Dana Bowman, shares her journey to find the solution.
