  • E013: Tie A Knot-- Brittany Primeaux
    on May 17, 2022 at 5:00 am by Erin Cuccio

    About Brittany
    Brittany Primeaux was born and raised in Lafayette, LA.  She graduated college in 2011 and was then married her husband the following year.  She is a mother of six who juggles work and her family’s busy schedules. Thriving in the chaos is how she encounters *most* days while trying her best to love Jesus and trust in Him with every aspect of her life.

    Brittany joins us to share about how God relentless pursues us with His love in ways that are unique to each of us and how sometimes the only way through when we reach the end of our rope is to tie a knot and climb.

  • E012: Altered Expectations-- Jessica Patay
    on May 10, 2022 at 5:00 am by Erin Cuccio

    About Jessica
    Jessica Patay is passionate about serving caregiving moms and creating authentic communities. She has always fostered deep, life-giving friendships, and is intentional about growing her community of girlfriends. As a caregiving mom herself, this passion for relationships carries on as she gathers women through We Are Brave Together - to encourage them, mentor them, inspire them, and validate their intense and precious journeys.

    Her own story as a mom to a child with a disability began in 2003 when her second son, Ryan, was born and diagnosed with a rare, genetic disorder called Prader-Willi syndrome.  Within two days of receiving this diagnosis, she received a phone call from a mentor mom from the Prader-Willi California Foundation. Immediately she felt relief and comfort knowing she was not alone. Thankfully, Ryan is sandwiched in the middle of siblings Luke and Kate, both fierce and loving cheerleaders and helpers to Ryan.

    If Jessica could show up on every mother’s doorstep with flowers, chocolate, wine, a witty-and-wise motherhood manual, and… a gorgeous banner that says, "You are not alone"-- she would.  And you never know, she just might find a way to make that happen! . The heart of the We Are Brave Together organization was born out of this desire to connect, encourage, and support.

    Jessica Patay fueled WABT’s growth into an international community of over 1500 moms. In the last four years, she has helped launch over 20 support groups throughout the United States, New Zealand and in Australia. She is the host of our podcast, “Brave Together with Jessica Patay,” found on Apple, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Stitcher. Brave Together is in its 3rd season and offers a library of inspirational stories and resources for moms in the trenches of caregiving.

    Jessica’s favorite topics to speak on include –
    The Power of Community
    You Are Worthy of Rest, Respite and Connection
    What Our Children Teach Us
    What About the Siblings in the Family?
    The Cyclical Grief in Caring For a Child with a Disability
    Self-Care is Not a Curse Word

  • E011: Never Alone-- LeighAnn Combs
    on May 3, 2022 at 5:00 am by Erin Cuccio

    About LeighAnn
    LeighAnn Combs is a full time working mom to seven amazing kids.  With an office job, a real estate career, and no shortage of beautiful chaos at home, there is never a dull moment.  She is originally from South Louisiana,  but has made her home in Central Louisiana though she will always consider herself a Cajun at heart. In her limited spare time, she enjoys going to dinner with friends (especially since that means that she doesn't have to cook), coffee and cupcakes, laughing until she cries, and gym time for sanity.

    LeighAnn's story is one of incredible heartbreak, resilience, and hope.
