Kendall Parkhurst isn’t just like family to us, she IS family! She is Alex’s sister-in-law (Alex is married to Kendall’s brother Derek). But the funny thing is Krista has known Kendall longer than Alex has! Evidence that our families are intertwined. All to say what a fun sister (real and figurative) for us to feature.
Kendall acts as the Executive Producer and Emcee of MOMcon (MOPS International’s national gathering of over 3,000 moms) and has recently taken on the job of Leadership Experience Content Strategist for the organization. In our conversation we talk through how to make work/life balance decisions when there are kids to raise and expectations to be examined. What a difference a mentor makes and our responsibility to call out the good we see in others.
We also cover the rounds from who will be on the main stage at MOMcon, to what music Kendall is listening to and who she reads first thing in the morning. You won’t want to miss this fun and significant conversation.
There are still seats at MOMcon available for those who want to join thousands of other moms to be inspired and equipped to do good in the world for God’s glory. Check out the link to MOMcon below and get yourself to Milwaukee, WI September 29-Oct 1. We’ll see you there!
