From our Contributor Team

Are you unsure if Houston Moms would be a good fit for you? Read what our current contributors love about being a part of our team:

I love being a contributor to Houston Moms because it has me writing again regularly! I love writing and having a platform and community to share my writing with has been such a gift. – Bethany D. 

I love being a contributor to Houston Moms because sometimes we lend a voice to the unspoken stuff that women may not always feel comfortable sharing themselves. There can be a ‘me too’ moment amongst readers and a sense of finally being ‘seen’. –Vhairi M

I love being a contributor to Houston Moms because it is an outlet for me to write and connect with other mothers. Oftentimes, motherhood can feel like an island and writing posts that others relate to is like building a bridge to their island. The more bridges the better! – Sarah H. 

I love being a contributor because it pushes me to uncomfortable places. It challenges me to consider viewpoints and experiences that, sometimes, directly conflict with my own. However, at the end of the day we know we are all mothers, and it’s all hard, and we stand behind each other and learn from each other – no matter where we’re coming from. –Kirsten C. 

I love being a contributor to Houston Moms because I rediscovered my love of writing along with new mom friendships I treasure. And after a tough year, these treasures are needed. –Kim R. 

As a long time reader, first time writer, I’ve loved getting to know some of the women behind so many of the essays I’ve read over the past 6 years. They’re as real, funny and encouraging as the words on their many pages. This community, for both writers and readers, makes motherhood feel a little less lonely. –Anne R. 

I was new to Houston when I became a member of the group, and it has not only helped me grow as a writer (so much so that I am publishing a book this year) but offered me a place to belong. To celebrate the wins and mourn the losses. To be myself and be accepted and cheered on. In a world where the internet depresses me daily, HMB is a bright spot of joy in my life. –Lindsay G. 

I love being a contributor to Houston Moms because it has given me a creative outlet as well as a platform to share on topics that are important to me. It’s been such a fun and valuable experience to be part of a diverse community where we can journey together through this crazy adventure called motherhood! –Vicky Y. 

I love being a contributor to Houston Moms because it is so special to be a part of this huge thing that connects so many moms. Reading other moms’ writing helped me feel a connection when everything was so new and scary! –Cindy E.

Meagan is a Dallas native who has lived in the Katy area for over a decade. She kicked a soccer ball all the way to Louisiana to attend college at her family’s alma mater of LSU, where she promptly fell in love with a Texas Aggie in Baton Rouge for an internship. After swimming back to Texas following Hurricane Katrina, Matt and Meagan fell in love with the Houston area and now couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Following several years of infertility, their miracle twins Ryan and Quinn were born in June of 2010. She believes there is nothing better than a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio, a large Sonic Diet Coke, sushi take-out, Girls Nights Out, and a mindless book to curl up with. Besides playing chauffeur and catering to the whims of her children, Meagan also is the Co-Owner of Houston Moms Blog.
