Camellia Varnado is a mom of three – parenting two adult children and one still at home while juggling work AND being a first time grandmother.

Are your kids in school? Daycare? Who cares for them What keeps your plate full these days?

My kids are 32, 22 an 13.  My 13 is at school and the only one in the house and my time is filled with being mom, wife, podcaster and mentor.

Do you work because you want to, need to, or some combination of both? What’s your honest answer to the question, “Why do you work?” 

Combination of both but I enjoy what I do.

What does your day to day look like?

Currently, my first grand baby was born 10/28 so my days are intentional long because I try to spend as much time as possible with my little love one.

How does being a working mom impact your kids — either positively or negatively?

They’re used to it, but it can be demanding when sharing time with my daughter and my husband.  Sometimes, I’m like…what about me…I walk to escape!

What holds the biggest tension in trying to manage everything?

Time management and not feeling guilty or resentful when I don’t get my needed time for me.

What’s one resource that would make your life easier?

A cook!

How would you encourage other working moms who are overwhelmed?

Ask God for wisdom and laughter. Ask God to help you help your family. Talk to someone.

Any last words for working moms?

Transparency is ok.
