Kristin Mitchener

Kristin Mitchener was raised by her mother who was emotionally absent with untreated mental illness. Kristin most identifies with daughters of Borderline mothers. She stumbled upon the Motherless Daughters Ministries website while searching for a support group in her city for daughters with emotionally absent mothers. While she wasn’t able to find any such support group close to her home, she felt instant comfort and connection reading the stories of the brave women who write for Motherless Daughters.

Kristin is currently writing a book about trauma and suicide prevention. She is a member of Writespace, a grassroots literary arts organization located in Houston, Texas where she resides with husband Preston and dog Rowdy. You can read more about her journey at
