My guilty pleasure is watching YouTube videos. I know, I know it sounds like a waste of time but I love it. Some videos I watch just for fun and some I watch to learn something.
For me it’s somewhat of a form of self care. It’s a way to do something for myself and it might be yours too.
I’ve learned a good amount of stuff from watching some of these women’s videos. I’m going to share my 10 favorite channels. All of these channels are run by moms or families with children.
This channel focuses on Kendra Atkins and her life with twin 2 year olds and a newborn. I love watching her channel because she just keeps it real. She doesn’t try to make everything look picture perfect.
I also love her channel because she shares advice for moms of toddlers. Braelynn is about the same age as her girls and I love watching how she’s dealing with some of the same things that I am with Braelynn.
If you’re a mom of a toddler I would definitely recommend checking her out. She also has a blog too: With Kendra
I found this family just by randomly watching a parody pregnancy announcement. I then learned that they are actually on the same Young Living Team as me! And they live in North Carolina.
Their channel focuses on family vlogs as they have 6 daughters and have plenty of exciting things going on. One of their daughters has Celiacs disease so I love seeing how they eat, since Braelynn use to have a gluten intolerance.
I also enjoy seeing them talk about natural living and just everyday life. I don’t know how they do it with 6 girls and running multiple businesses but it sure is fun to watch.
Formerly known as “The Budgeting Wife,” Marissa talks about budgeting and saving money.
As the name says she is a wife and recently her and her husband suffered a miscarriage. She’s been very honest and open about sharing her journey through that and it’s been inspiring. She’s currently pregnant and I love watching her motherhood videos too. Her channel offers a great variety of content.
I love watching them and getting motivation to stick to my budget. I also get plenty of ideas on how better to save and just all the budgeting and financial things.
She also has a blog: The Budgeting Wife
She is another budgeting YouTuber but she also talks about other stuff. She talks about budgeting, working from home, homeschool, mom hacks, and recipes.
I love her videos because they are all around 5 minutes and are super helpful. She tries to simplify mom life and I love watching how she does that. I’m all for making mom life as easy as possible.
She is the YouTube cleaning lady. I don’t know why but something about watching someone else clean or organize motivates me to clean or organize. I love watching her videos.
She also does decorate with me’s for the different seasons and I love watching those too. She has so many great ideas and I love her style.
They also have a family vlog channel that I enjoy watching.
She posts clean with me’s, decorate with me’s, and just anything she’s doing around her house. She’s also expecting her first child, so it’s been fun to watch all the baby videos.
She’s so positive and upbeat and her videos are always so fun.
The East Family
This channel is run by Shawn Johnson East and her husband Andrew East. Shawn was an olympic gymnast and I’ve followed her ever since she was on the olympics. Her husband is also a former NFL player.
Their family has gone through miscarriage, job loss, and more and still they keep a positive attitude. They are currently expecting their first child and I’ve enjoyed watching them prepare for that.
They are so positive and funny and their videos are just fun to watch.
Ashley is a mom of 7 who does videos about homeschool, minimalism, and pretty much any other topic under the sun. I love watching how she handles life with 7 kids and homeschooling them all.
She’s also the sister of the next YouTuber I’m going to mention.
This Gathered Nest
This is my favorite YouTube channel. Angela has 7 kids, 2 biological, 3 adopted, and 2 through embryo adoption. They are also in the process of adopting again.
Her and her husband vlog about their life, homeschooling, and adoption and it’s so fun to watch. She keeps things real and honest and I love her outlook on life.
This is Angela’s other channel where she does sit down videos and talks about a lot of different topics. Like I mentioned above, she’s real and honest and that’s why I love watching this channel also.
Those are my top 10 favorite YouTube channels for moms. What are some of your favorite channels?
