The "mom" is Joanne Towery, retired Exec VP and CFO for Ken Towery's Tire and AutoCare and former head of R&D for Kentucky Fried Chicken (yes, she knows the secret recipe!). Ken, her husband, (the real Ken of Ken Towery's) tells her that after working in the chicken business and then the tire business that she's been "tired and feathered" (southern accent required!) Her son is Michael Plichta (father to four of the most awesome grandkids on earth!) and helps Mom in this endeavor. Mike's wife, Nicole also assists in the design work. Mom was a single mom herself for several years and has a passion to help single mom's know the grace of God that she herself found.
