Local Woman on a Mission: Dr. Julia Kinder + a Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered the Leighana Paige Boutique giveaway yesterday! CONGRATS TO JESSICA LIVINGSTON!!!!! You are the winner of a custom initial tee or number tee from Leighana Paige Boutique! Please email me so we can talk details.

The giveaways are seriously blessing my heart, ya'll. I'm so touched that we are able to show local businesses and artists some love this Christmas. Little ol' me didn't realize how large the impact would be when I dreamed up the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! Through LTBL I have met some amazing women in our community, and today I'm honored to introduce you to one of them, Dr. Julia Kinder!

Julia and her daughter, Ella.
 Dr. Julia A. Pewitt Kinder is mom to six-year-old Ella and 15-month-old twins Dexter and Paxton. Julia is Board Certified in Family Practice and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment through the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians. Working directly with healthcare organizations and private physician practices, Julia provides valuable insight into early childhood development skills for children with Down Syndrome. She works closely with labor and delivery teams, obstetricians and pediatricians to educate these medical professionals on how to communicate with the family of a child who has special needs. Julia and her husband Mitch live in Cape Girardeau, and she has an office in Jackson.

Julia and her family! So beautiful!
After talking with Julia, I knew that her story and passion needed to be shared! She truly is an inspiration to moms everywhere!

Julia has created some special tools for busy moms on the go and their families to help make time for learning and exercise. Julia is kind enough to be giving away TWO of her unique gifts to LTBL readers!

The first is a set of Fitness Flashcards. Dr. Kinder designed the exercise cards with her busy patients in mind;easy exercises that persons of any age or fitness level can incorporate into their daily routine. Simply select 3 exercises each morning and place them at home or at work to remind you to exercise. Over 30 exercises included, with photo demonstration and directions. This gift is valued at $25!!

Got time to brush your teeth in the morning? Then you have time to exercise!

The next gift is for busy moms and babies. Julia developed a flashcard and bib set to remind busy Mom's to use mealtime as a fun educational time! Info cards describe games to easily teach baby without adding extra time into your day!

95% of a child's brain develops between birth & age 5; take advantage of baby's ability and desire to learn!

This would make a perfect gift for a new Mom!
 Julia's bib and flashcard set is valued at $30. Thank you Julia for being willing to give these two amazing gifts to LTBL readers!
We will draw TWO winners for this giveaway! All you need to do is "LIKE" Dr. Julia Kinder on Facebook and tell her Life Told By Leslie sent you! If you already "LIKE" Dr. Julia on FB, please show some love on her wall so I know to enter you in the giveaway!
I asked Dr. Julia if she had any advice for new Mom's, this is what she had to say:
"Don't forget what is most important to you. We get caught up in the day to day lessons, sports practices and activities and we forget to set aside time for ourselves. Make a list of simple things YOU love, whether that be painting your nails, lighting a candle, reading a magazine, etc. Do one of those things per day. Take time for yourself." --Dr. Julia Kinder.
Solid advice from a remarkable woman! I hope you'll visit Dr. Julia's Facebook Page and also take time to check out her personal website to read more about her family and see more of her fun products.
