You might have noticed the beautiful lotus flower used in our logo. Why a lotus flower? Lotus flowers grow out of muddy, murky water and blossom into something absolutely beautiful, representing perseverance and strength. Motherhood is a lot like that, don’t you think? It can be really hard and difficult at times but it’s a really beautiful challenge. CTWM’s founder Michelle even has a lotus flower tattoo on her wrist!
