About Rooted Moms

Rooted Moms is a non-profit non-denominational Christian ministry that exists to help moms thrive in every season of life by becoming rooted in Christ (Colossians 2:7), growing in God’s Word (Psalm 1:1-3), and gathering in life-giving community (Hebrews 10:24-25). 

We provide free resources, community, and encouragement that help moms grow in their relationship with Christ, and more fully experience a life of fulfillment and freedom in Him.

Our operations team is made up of moms who desire to share what we’ve experienced— the life-changing power of being rooted in Jesus. We believe the abundant life we long for is achieved not by striving harder, but by abiding more deeply in Christ. We believe the influence of a mom cannot be overstated— when we invest in spiritually strong moms, we reap spiritually strong marriages, families, churches, and communities.
