The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Angela Ellis



Angela has Memphis running through her veins. Born and raised here, she loves traveling but Memphis is always home. There is no other city like it. Angela is the mom of three amazingly unique girls: Jordan (June 2003), Carmen (January 2009), and Norah (June 2014). Jordan has Autism and is a talented artist; Carmen is the entertainer that loves dancing and competitive cheering (yes, she is a cheer mom!), and Norah has Down Syndrome and is full of sass. Besides being a full-time mom and a full-time employee, she is also a full-time advocate for her girls with special needs. She enjoys spending time with her family creating memories, vacationing whenever the opportunity arises, and dancing in the kitchen while cooking. Her mottos for life are: with God all things are possible, every day is a new day to be grateful, and live to love and love to smile.

Playdates for Moms: Is this a Real Thing?
Are playdates for moms a real thing? I didn't think that when I became an adult and mom I would still have to ask permission to hang out with my friends. Then, when I did get permission to hang with them, who knew we would have to coordinate our schedules so far in advance to […]

Soul food and the Importance of Teaching it to the Next Generation
