Eden Strong is a single mother of two young kids that make sure she gets out of bed on a daily basis. 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 many different sites such as Lifetime Moms, YourTango, XOJane, Scary Mommy, Yahoo, HuffPo, Catser, Dogster, and The Small Animal Channel. 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 abused women, she can be found speaking what's left of her mind on her blog It Is Not My Shame to Bear.
