I’m Katie, founder and creator at Joyful Messes. I am an all-round creative with a short attention span. I like to dive in and create anything, though I have trouble mastering banana bread. I believe that motherhood is messy, and we must find joy in those moments to see what God is trying to teach us. The messy moments are where we are uncomfortable, where we are learning and where we are growing. If we pursue joy, we are pursuing the higher calling – the life lesson we signed up for when we became mothers and wives.

I love to photograph the joyful moments. The ones that I can look too when things are not so happy. I write on everything surrounding motherhood, and I try to balance between the emotional chaos and peaceful happiness that rolls through our days as mothers. I hope you find some wisdom, laughter and joy as you read through the stories from myself and others who also believe there is power to pursuing joy!



I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.

A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.

This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!

Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !

Enroll in the course before the price goes up after July 4th!

I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
