Most moms can change a diaper faster than a rodeo cowboy can rope a calf and survive on less sleep than a 3rd year Intern. Yet the chaos and clutter of motherhood can quickly steal their joy.

Author and speaker Trish Berg reminds moms to keep it simple and keep it biblical. In the midst of sleep deprivation and Cheerio dust, she wants moms to embrace the wonder and privilege of being a mom.

Trish has been featured on ABC World News Tonight with Charles Gibson, Focus on the Family, Moody’s Midday Connection; 100 Huntley Street, That’s Life with Robin Swoboda and The Harvest Show.

She is a national speaker for Hearts at Home (2008) and MOPS International (2007), and enjoys speaking at church events, conferences, and women’s retreats all over the country.

Trish has written for Today’s Christian Woman,, Focus on Your Child, MOMSense Magazine, P31 WOMAN, and Hearts at Home. She was also featured as a mom expert in Woman’s World Magazine in 2007.

She earned her MBA in marketing from John Carroll University, but earned her doctorate in diaper changing in rural Ohio where she lives with her husband, Michael, and their four children, age’s twelve to five.
