Chelsea Lee Smith has a message for all of those struggling moms out there: If you want to be the very best you can be for your child, you have to take time each day to work on you. Personal growth is hands down not just what moms need to be great child providers and people but what everyone needs to create a kinder, more compassionate, more creative world.
Smith’s Moments a Day gives readers those quick moments to reflect, practice thoughtfulness and best of all, to teach your kids out to join you on the journey.

It is easy to underestimate the power of stopping for a few moments each day to work on personal growth but positive change can happen in the small moments, the ones you barely notice. It is the goal of this website to offer simple ideas to incorporate character development into daily life, so it is woven throughout the family’s rhythms and routines. By adding a few intentional moments to the day, a family’s growth adds up significantly over time!
The mission of this website is to support parents and children to grow into the best versions of themselves. The core values woven throughout all the articles and resources are as follows:
#1. GROWTH IS IMPORTANT
Valuing personal growth is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves and to the next generation. Consciously following the path of self-growth not only helps us become better people (and parents), but helps our children build a positive foundation of relationships and behaviours to prepare them for a bright future.
#2. GROWTH IS A NEVERENDING PROCESS
Reflecting on and embracing our own unique journey is an important part of rising to our full potential. Learning to become conscious of our story and the way we are telling it, allows us to practice positive self-talk and build self-esteem. Family can become a support network for developing and continuing this process throughout life.
#3. GROWTH INSPIRES US TO GIVE BACK
Every day we are presented with opportunities to find and polish our inner gems such as empathy, social responsibility, forgiveness, and courage. As we gain insights and develop skills, we naturally want to contribute to our communities and make the world a better place. The continuous cycle of growing and giving brings meaning and joy to life.
