Instagram Mom of the Week: GG Renee Hill
Words: Ashley Poag
Author, blogger, and creative coach GG Renee Hill has a way with words that will encourage you to move through life with confidence and grace.
The right word or gesture said or done at the right time can help us see the best in any situation. And that’s certainly the case when browsing through blogger GG Renee Hill’s pictures of her family (she's the proud mother of three kids), poems, and encouraging quotes. Her Instagram account has become an empowerment tool for other women.
What you won't do, is check off all the boxes all the time. Keeping everyone happy. Meeting all their expectations. Many times work will be neglected because of home and home will be neglected because of work. But what you will do, what you must do, is nurture yourself. Sometimes everything else has to wait while you breathe and reflect and recharge.
You better preach, GG Renee.
This is just one of the many words of wisdom—sometimes original, sometimes borrowed—GG Renee shares regularly on Instagram.

GG Renee is also creative coach. She encourages women to use their creativity to find meaning in everything they do.
This son of mine. There was a time when it was just he and I. Young, uncertain mom. Juicy, happy baby. Suddenly he's getting older and more complicated and I don't always know if I'm doing this right but I love him like the air I breathe and our bond is strong. Being a mother is teaching me what it truly means to surrender.
GG Renee takes readers on her journey as a creative and a mother. The confessional posts really get at what it means to be a woman.
