Video Check-in (Confessions, Meditations, Words, Words, Words)

MotherJana is going all wild in this joint, expanding through Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. She’s just spreading her motherly wizardly vibes around this weird world, seeing what makes her and others happy.

If you missed Friday’s confessional, click below to learn more about the Gospel of Mary Magdalene (hidden, now revealed, like the gooey chocolate center of Christianity!), why church rules don’t often work, and topics like yoga, finding your life’s purpose, and the importance of traveling alone. It’s fun! (And YouTube takes the best screenshots, as you can see!)


And if that video is too long, and you’re not interested in “conquestionals” (confession + life questions=conquest?), then learn a little bit about how this Motha’ meditates with her wild 5-year-old in the background. It’s possible! Sort of! Just have low expectations!


If you are interested in hearing more from MotherJana, or if you just want to have mercy on her tender soul, subscribe to the MotherJana YouTube channel for weekly updates. (If that link even works! Or if you can find a subscribe button! Life is a test in patience!)

You can also follow me on Instagram, @janamarierose (MotherJana was taken, what’s that about?) or the Facebook page, @MotherJana. (Also, Instagram is really ridiculously complicated, and I don’t know how platforms like this become so popular! Just an aside!)

And here’s a picture of Joan of Arc, just ’cause!

Confessions (and a Video Link)

I am weird.

I have always been weird, but I have often tried to suppress that side of myself. My family doesn’t like “weird.” They are very straight-laced folks.

But I love being weird. I love being creative, trying new things, getting out of my comfort zone. (Wait, can I say I love that last part? Probably not, but I love when it’s over.)

And I love weird people. They are my faves. People who have no shame about their idiosyncrasies, people who not only march to the beat of their own drum, but create a fucking entirely new drum!


I’m doing this weird video thing. Because a part of me always wanted to be a talk-show host. And I have a phone that lets me do videos. And it’s more fun than cleaning my apartment, which I’m trying to get my kids to do.

Also? I have a lot to say.

(I have always had a lot to say, but it comes from a much better place these days than it used to.)

So if you’re brave and daring and have a little time to kill, check out the YouTube MotherJana channel.

The latest is the Friday Confessional. Rather than asking for forgiveness from MotherJana, or for a list of prayers to say (which feels cheap), followers write in some of the deepest, scariest questions of their hearts.

Except one guy. All he thinks about is sex.

Tune in. Subscribe. Have fun!
