Eden Strong

I gave up being normal a long time ago, these days I just aim to be functional.


Eden Strong, (former single) mother of two young kids, is a newlywed for the second time! Abandoned by her drug addicted, abusive, first husband, Eden lives her life almost entirely devoid of most social graces, yet has somehow managed to avoid being weeded out by nature. Functional enough to be worth hiring and dysfunctional enough to make her funny, Eden is a regular contributor to over forty wonderful companies, including Yahoo and Huffington Post. When she isn't writing to supplement all the money that she doesn't make at her job as the founder of a nonprofit that serves domestic violence victims, she can be found speaking what's left of her mind on her blog, It Is Not My Shame to Bear.


2 kids, a son and a daughter

Fun Facts

  • If I could swap places with someone for a day, it would be:

    Any celebrity because it is socially acceptable for them to check themselves into a luxurious “hospital” when they are suffering from exhaustion.

  • My parenting motto:

    Kids are breathing, award please!

  • The first thing I do when I wake up:

    Tell a little person that it’s too early to be waking up mommy!
