2024 is right around the corner. See what we have in store for the new year!
My name is Maria Eckersley. I’m a stay-at-home mom of six by day and a sleep-deprived graphic designer by night. I have a passion for two big things: my family and my faith.
As much as I love my kid-filled day job, I also find a lot of mothering tasks to be a bit mundane. I tend to seek out tech, ideas and products that make my mothering life easier. Many of my designs and posts focus on tips & tricks I have picked up over the last 24 years of mistake-riddled parenthood and as I'm honing my newly acquired grandma skills.
I'm also a big believer in the power of a good teacher...especially when it comes to building a core foundation of faith. My Creative Come Follow Me digital course and Time Out for Women talks are examples of my desire to pass along what I've learned from my many years of teaching youth and adults in the Church of Jesus Christ. This site is a work in progress, but I hope you enjoy it.
Over the past many years, I've loved the opportunity to teach and create, and in the process, I've met some wonderful friends. My hope heading into 2024 is to help connect more of my friends to each other --to create a place where we can gather together. This change will combine all the items previously sold on the MeckMom.com store and all digital course material on a new site that is more searchable, mobile, and community-centric. Please join us and check out all the changes!

"...I have children ranging from 8 to 20 and they were bored with scriptures. I was praying for a way to have it be more hands-on and fun and this was the perfect answer. Now our weeks are filled with variety and fun and "MeckMom" days are our favorites. Also with the object lessons, the lessons are sticking better. Lastly, I love her notes and links to other talks and references to study. It has enriched my study too. I am deeply grateful for this course. You will be too."
"This course delivers everything I could possibly need to have fun and insightful family nights. Not only does this course provide printables, notes, and object lessons EVERY WEEK, Maria does a great job explaining the gospel in thought-provoking ways. What started as a resource for family nights has now become spiritual enlightenment for me. I look forward to it every week and feel confident and excited to teach my family through the things I learned. This isn’t a product, it is truly a service Maria is providing my family, and I am so grateful that she shares her knowledge and enthusiasm."
"This course is heaven sent! It is exactly what I needed this year to improve my spirituality, to keep us on track for scripture study and to apply the scriptures to our lives. She doesn’t just put out activities to keep the students busy. Her activities and lessons are planned to be simple yet memorable. She gets it because she is a mom and is teaching her kids just like the rest of us.
Maria is the queen of object lessons, analogies and fun! My kids can’t wait to see what fun activities we will do each week. This course is worth every penny! Everyone needs to benefit from Maria’s insights and great ideas."
