From pandemics to politics, this year has been one of epic change. Not one of us has been immune from the disruption of change, or at the very least, the distraction of it all.

And yet, change isn’t always bad. Sometimes it’s a catalyst for something even better; sometimes it’s necessary.

We’re having our own conversations here at On the Minds of Moms about change. One year ago, Forum Communications Company assumed ownership and editorial leadership of this magazine. To be honest, our objective this first year was simply to do no harm.

On the Minds of Moms founders Sheri Stockmoe and Dani Fluge created this little magazine more than a decade ago and built it into a beloved publication that areas moms (and dads) could count on seeing, at the grocery store racks and in waiting rooms. We love this magazine and what it stands for, so we want to maintain that strong identity and commitment to the community.Yet we know that evolution has to be part of its story, too. The world has changed a whole lot these past few years and we want to be sure this magazine reflects the world today.

Over the past few weeks, we have been seeking feedback from all of you about what you love about this magazine and what you could live without. In the coming weeks, I, along with OTMOM managing editor Danielle Teigen, will be sifting through that feedback and brainstorming new ideas for the new year ahead.
