Mary Carver

Mary Carver is a writer, speaker, recovering perfectionist, book nerd, and Mexican food enthusiast. She is the co-author of Choose Joy: Finding Hope & Purpose When Life Hurts, and she writes about her imperfect life with humor and honesty at www.givinguponperfect.com. Mary also contributes to incourage.me and MothersofDaughters.com, and she’d love to connect with you on Facebook.


M.J. is a graphic designer and social media specialist by day (and night) while she entertains her three children and counts the minutes until the next date night with her husband. She is overly enthusiastic about musicals, dark chocolate, and a good balloon animal (but really, who isn’t). She shares parenting fun and DIY over on her blog, Pars Caeli, a piece of heaven.
