Mothers, too, need professional development in order to become the best version of themselves.  Access to fresh ideas, experiences and insights brings with it a sense of fulfillment in work and a desire to serve family and society joyfully.

This half-day conference brings mothers of all ages together to hear inspiring lectures and to have an opportunity to share the adventure and challenge of motherhood!

Meaningful Motherhood in the Age of Digital Distraction
